Started with a phone that had the OTA Kitkat update. Tryed this from Surge1223 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2726868, didn't work. ended up downgrading (trying) to back MK2 and ended up with phone with no sound.
Came to the " [ODIN][TAR] VRUEMK2 Emergency and No-Wipe Odin tars" thread and tried that. Odin failed on the tar.md5 full wipe file "ALL_I545VRUEMK2_I545VZWEMK2_1937946_REV06_user_lo w _ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5" as shown in the log below. Tried the pit file too "JFLTE_USA_VZW_16G.pit" just to get the phone to reboot.
At this point I just want a unrooted stock phone. Kitkat would be fine with me, wanted to root for some stuff, but it's not that important right now. Waited for the PASS in ODIN, phone boots fine, still no sound.
Looking for help, thanks.
