If you do not want root just use pccompanion and choose repair my phone when the options comes up.

thank you
Man, I asked you do you still have recovery and you said no?!?

Use recovery to flash stock based ROMs like NUT or iHackers, flashtool or pc companion to flash stock unrooted firmware.

It won'tbe a problem if you have twrp (recovery), it'll wipe everything...

We are talking for a two hours and you are asking same question over and over again...

I wanna help but come on....

It doesn't have to

Turn the phone off, do not attach it to the PC

Run pccompanion, choose software update

When prompted choose the blue option to repair the phone, go through the instructions and attach phone in flashmode when prompted
