So I have a verizon S4 (SCH-i545), I had it rooted, saw the 4.2.2 update today and downloaded and it failed... I figured because I was rooted.

I tired to unroot today and things have gone bad. Using odin tool and following a tutorial Odin failed.

I now see:

Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

In the top left:
odin mode
product name: sch-i545
current bianary: samsung official
system status: official
knox kernal lock: 0x0
know warranty void: 0x0
csb-config-lsb 0x30
write protection enable
emmc burst mode enabled.


I need to just restore it with the stock firmware but apparently the one I download which was labeled "Verizon Stock 4.2.2" and not SCH-i454 must have been the wrong one.

Does anyone have a RELIABLE link for the 4.2.2 firmware? Or is there something I should be doing beyond getting a reliable file and restoring again. I just installed kies and it wont connect to the phone to do an energency firmware recovery.

Also, what is this "i9500, i9505, i9505G, i9506" that is this forum title, my s4 isnt any of those as far as I know and there isnt a i545 anywhere?

:/

Here's the Verizon S4 guide:

i9500/i9506/i9507 are different variations of the S4 phones.

Am I going to be able to go back to 3.2 (the link you posted) when I was on 3.4 before all this?

Thanks for the link.

Nothing is going to happen tonight at this rate, the DLs are slower than death. Need some usenet action on these files.
