So, I have a MetroPCS S4 on my hands. It was on Metro's 4.3 release prior to rooting and installing custom recovery, and I can't seem to get it back to stock with Odin by any means. When I try flashing the MF2 TAR, the phone says "SW REV CHECK FAIL (fused 4, binary 1)". I tried flashing an NB4 TAR, and I got "SECURE CHECK FAIL : aboot" instead. Either way, I get "Fail! (Auth)" and the process ends.
The main reason I'm trying to flash any TAR in general is because it's a 32GB phone but the ROMs I've installed say that there is only about 9GB of internal storage available, which seems like the type of space that a 16GB phone might have. So if there's any way to fix the internal storage space, that'd be great too. Please help me out!

You need to download the tar file again. Sounds like a bad download.
Phone side? You need to put the tar file in the PDA slot

You need at least 4.3 firmware to flash, sounds like you're trying to flash 4.2.2.. As a future note, do not try to flash other device's firmware, it could cause a brick

That's... embarrassing. I guess I just assumed that since it was the only Odin TAR available on that forum, it must have been the 4.3 TAR. Oof. ;;

I only tried flashing the T-Mobile 4.4.2 TAR because I was assured that the Tmo and Metro S4 were, for almost all intents and purposes, the same phone. That said, I got it back on its feet, so to speak. I flashed the NB4 modem and a rooted stock NB4 ROM, and everything's all peachy. Thanks for the proverbial bop to the side of the head.

Good! And while yes they are practically the same device, it's not good practice to just flash similar devices firmware.

Roms are fine, we are talking about firmware

Oh ok. Aside from that, the NB4 modem works on Metro
