Hey guys,

I successfully downgraded to MK2 from NB1 after taking the OTA update several weeks ago. I have rooted the MK2 and installed SS 3.72 with success on installing the recovery. I have tried multiple times following the guides on updating through ODIN to 4.4.2 again using GoldenEye and SkyFall and CM ROMs with no success. Each attempt ends with the phone not loading past the boot screen. It isn't bootlooping but pausing after the boot screen and not doing anything. What have I done wrong? I am getting tired of using this 4.3 rooted stock rom with no wifi. My data bill is going to be through the roof.

If you would have read the entire downgrade post you would know that there is a simple fix for WiFi.

I understand that there is a wifi fix for 4.3. However, that was not my main issue. I am trying to upgrade to a rooted 4.4.2 and followed the guide to a T as far as I know multiple times. Not having wifi between 4.3 and 4.4.2 was expected as I did not expect to be on 4.3 this wrong. I would really appreciate help on getting up to 4.4.2. The ROMs are not loading after the boot animations. Any ideas?

Nevermind guys. I decided to just revert back to stock 4.4.2 via Odin. I appreciate all the work by the devs to put up these guides for us to follow, keep up the good work guys.
