I started with MF9 and had rooted and ran TriForce 3.1 for a long time. Everything was working fine, so I never updated. I didn’t want to get tangled up in the knox mess. I decided to go ahead and update last night and I went through using unknownforce’s instructions and downloads. I tried to flash NAE modem only, but odin failed. Now it won’t boot, just goes to the download mode page. (the one that says to recover using kies) it also allows me to enter download mode (power+volume \/)
Odin full MF9 firmware (as my phone started with this, and I’ve never flashed anything knox)
Odin MF9/NAE modem
Full MF9 odin restore (there’s a thread that has the whole exe that does everything)
All of these with adding a pit file.
Every time, odin fails. It seems to be failing at the modem.bin, but who knows. It doesn't seem to transfer for very long, perhaps 2 minutes.
I’ve gotten to the “screw it” stage and loaded Kies (tried both mac and windows xp and 7) and tried to do a recovery there. It won’t recognize the phone right now though. It just sits there, basically. EDIT: It sees the phone and sits there trying to connect, but eventually times out.
Odin can see the phone and attempts to flash, but again, runs into the problems above. I can’t download the firmware through kies due to being a sprint phone and no S/N. I'd prefer to avoid knox, but if I have to, I'm fine with going that route. If I'm not out of warranty yet, it will be soon. As long as that's the only big ramification, I don't really care.
Anyone have any ideas? Need more information?
