You should be good with this as your no data but please still make a nandroid or other backup just in case.

Can anyone who has flashed this comment on whether or not they lost their data?

Also, I thought once you have Knox you can't downgrade? So if I make a nandroid of my 4.3, then upgrade to 4.4, I can't restore back tot he 4.3 nandroid. So what's the point of the nandroid? Just in case the upgrade to 4.4 fails?

My phone is 32GB. Can you explain in civilian terms how to get my phone back to 32GB after I flash to 4.4? Along with links to download the 32GB PIT file, please.

Thanks.

No loss of data. You can't downgrade firmware, you can use any ROM, so yes your 4.3 nandroid will work.


My ROM: WICKED X

My Odin is failing at aboot. Anyone have a clue on what would be the way to get past this point. I was flashing back to stock with a one click odin setup and it closed out and now I cant get Odin to get past the aboot.

Is there a way to get the nd8 tar. I can t get the one click to work and cant find the tar by itself. TIA!!!!!!

Thought I would share this for anyone else looking for it thanks to @prboy1969. Remember this is the tar for use with Odin. Not a one click

Big thanks to rwilco12 et al. for putting this together.

Just wanted to make a quick note about my experience with this. I followed all the steps as outlined by rwilco. When I plugged in my device to the front of my computer and used his utility to start the flash, after just a few minutes the flash failed. I tried again a couple times but it failed again and again. It would fail always during the System flash process. Eventually I unplugged it and restarted the phone. When it booted (both download mode and normal), I was getting a "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again" error in the place where the Download robot usually is.... I tried a few more times to flash using rwilco's utility without luck.

The thing that worked for me, however, was to plug the phone into a different USB port, this time one on the back of my computer. Once I did that, I re-ran the utility and BINGO, it worked flawlessly. Booted right up into stock Sprint ROM.

Just thought I'd mention, the first time I tried this, Odin3 hung on the md5 check (for a very long time, > 30 minutes). Figuring that it probably wasn't actually talking to the phone yet, I killed the process and unplugged the phone. Starting the same executable and plugging back in without changing anything (AFAICT), everything worked normally the second time around (md5 check took just a few seconds).

Edit: Actually, I just remembered that the second time, I ran as administrator (this is on Windows 8.1). I have no idea why that would matter for an apparent hang on an md5 check, but that's the best guess I have as to why it finally worked.

Perfect!
Downloaded and flashed one-click nd8 build and everything went perfectly.

Thanks to all who made this possible and so very very easy!
