Sooo.... I had the OTA to kitkat, lost my root, decided i wanted it back. Downgraded to 4.3 and rooted, safestrap all of that succesfully. Ran it for about 2-3 weeks, figured i'd go and follow the rest of the directions to get back to kitkat, turns out i messed it up good. I still have the nc5 build but the mk2 baseband and 4.3.

Now, whatever the heck i did, i tried a factory reset then tried to flash a stock 4.3 over it just to really clean it up, turns out, it didnt like that. Now kies will not even recognize the device, and when i tried surge's mk2 restore, it fails. I haven't been able to find a 4.4.2 stock to re-odin and try that. I obviously did search and still am searching at this moment but i must be blind or something.

Now i have a phone that says "firmware failed, please connect to kies and run a repair" or whatever. When i try to odin to the mk2, it says "sw rev. check fail : fused 6 binary 5" which i assume has something to do with the build number/bootloader for kitkat thats still on my phone. Am I screwed or is this recoverable? Thanks peoples.

I really need my phone for work. It's used numerous times to make calls because i'm in a service technician position. I can't go without it for even 1 weekday, if i can't get this figured out by sunday at noon, i will have to bite it and get a new phone. Cannot be phoneless on monday. It would literally cause me to lose my job.

I've tried it about 4 times now, 1 time it got to about 80% done then failed at write for persdata or something of the sort. The other 3 times it stops within 10 seconds. I'm not sure what else to do. It doesn't seem like there is anything else i can do to be honest. I might be effed.

Are you trying the same file over and over again? If so, maybe you got a bad download. Did you check the MD5 checksum to see if it matches? Maybe you could try downloading it again.

Yeah i am, but it fails at different points. The same 3 different points though. I'll try to re-dl it and try again. Anything is worth a shot at this point. Otherwise someone can get a free broken s4 if they want lol

Finally achieved success. It took about 40 times but it finally went through. The last 10 were tried with a new dl, i just didnt give up, the one time it worked i made sure i ran odin in administrator. I had an odin going without administrator so i loaded up a new one with it on and right when the 1st one failed i started the second one up and it had the blue progress bar go all the way to the right side of the screen and come back around through the left eventually running into itself, as soon as the progress bar began to overlap the screen it was also saying invalid response for bar length or something in the upper left text until that went down screen and started back on the top. In any case, woohoo it's working! Thanks guys, guess i won't need a new phone yet.
