Im on the latest T-Mo firmware and Im having issues with the storage reading correctly after a stock 5.0 flash. Trying to fix that I lost my T-mo ROM backup and when I tried to flash the stock TWRP ROM from the OP I get an error in TWRP that wont let me flash and then it fails.
I would normally just flash the stock ROM, stock recovery, take the OTA (because at the time I couldn't s-off with firewater and needed the lastet firmware to run some international builds. Luckily sunshine worked for me on 4.4.4).
I think Lollipop messed up my partition so I just want to return 100% unrooted stock. Any help will be greatly appreciated
You can't flash these stock Roms. They're twrp backups so you have to extract the zip and place them in the appropriate twrp backup sub folder. Also, are you talking about the storage not showing up properly on stock android 5.0? Where it pretty much creates like 2 legacy folders on the internal storage? If so, what I did was after booting into android I went back into recovery and when you go to erase your data partitions before flashing a new ROM, I picked that other option that says to wipe the internal storage. I just used that and started fresh and had no problems on lollipop.
