Hi all.

I was trying to downgrade my GT-I9505 to 4.2.2 jellybean using Odin. This is the complete list of messages on Odin:

<ID:0/016> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I9505XXUDMH6_I9505OLBDMG1_I9505DXUDMH6_HOME.tar.md 5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/016> Odin v.3 engine (ID:16)..
<ID:0/016> File analysis..
<ID:0/016> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/016> Initialzation..
<ID:0/016> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/016> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/016> SingleDownload.
<ID:0/016> sbl2.mbn
<ID:0/016> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/016> sbl3.mbn
<ID:0/016> rpm.mbn
<ID:0/016> aboot.mbn
<ID:0/016> FAIL! (Auth)
<ID:0/016>
<ID:0/016> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

Now my phone is stuck in Odin mode with the message: "Firmware Upgrade encountered an issue. Please... recovery mode in Kies."

I'm using the September version of 4.2.2 firmware for Singapore downloaded from Sammobile (I cannot attach links as I'm new here)

Tried different USB ports, 2 different cables.. Just haven't tried on a different machine. Not sure if it's an issue with the firmware or what. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

You can't downgrade from 4.3 or 4.4.2 to android 4.2.2. Million of threads opened before yours. Pls use the search button

When you say "before", does it mean the stock firmware my phone came with? My phone came with 4.2 i believe, and I upgraded subsequently to 4.4.2.. Does it make any difference?

In any case, if I download 4.4.2 from sammobile and flash with odin again, it should probably be ok?

Open KIES plug your phone in and choose "Emergency Recovery" option. It helped me in the past with similar issue.

1. You void ur warranty trying to downgrade (KNOX: 0x1 in bootloader).
2. Your phone came with android 4.2.2.
3. Your phone will be ok if you update your phone to 4.4.2.

Ah thanks! got my s4 back working again.

Anyway.. my bootloader actually shows the following:

KNOX KERNAL 0X0
KNOX WARRANTY VOID 0X0
CSB-CONFIG-LSB 0X30

Seems like my warranty is still intact aye..?
