flash full firmware zip (minus the boot.img)
flash recovery of choice
flash stock rom he offers or any rom re based with the OTA files.
it does take a little bit more because you'll need to use a computer and fastboot but you already need this to go back to stock.
but anyways, i have never seen stock recovery not flash an OTA correctly like you've shown above. sorry to hear you're having trouble with it.
Yea i know he does a super job, unfortunately im not as good, would like to know how to make a stock rom out of the ota ans properly zip it up. not sure how to pull it from the phone.
I like to take it b/c i like to be the first to post my mods for the ota and get them done.
I also like to understand more. I know there are a zillion things out there, but some aint the best as they do not fully explain everything step by step, they skip stuff and make assumptions on your knowledge.
anyways ima shut up now lolz.
Ill prob wait, but i hate waiting.
Remember to push the THANKS button if i helped!
