Upgrade from ME7 (SS) to NC5 successfully KitKat
I've seen a lot of posts here on how to unroot from SS and then upgrade. I had read the documents plenty of times with no luck. None. I spent over 3 hours trying to figure it out. All of the methods would not work for me.
What I had to do was make sure my modem matched up with ME7's baseband. Once I did that, I tried the update. It kept saying it was the NC5 update but it kept coming up with a recovery failed message. I said screw it and plugged it into my computer via Kies. Voila, it was as simple as that for me. Well, relatively speaking. I hope this can help someone in the future. Once it installed, it took away root and SS. I suppose it was kind of like ODIN flashing it? I ended up still doing a factory reset to clear the old data though. If I did something wrong here as well, please let me know. I've been crack flashing for a while and don't exactly consider myself an expert but I'd like to try to give back to this community! Good luck!
