This should work, what errors do you get when you try to flash it? You're on stock 4.3 when you try to update, correct? In order to flash the OTA you cannot be rooted or have modified the system in any way.

Good advice and I'll further add make sure when you rename the 2400258.cfg that you have known file extensions enabled and then right click and highlight the entire file "2400258.cfg" and then rename that to "update.zip"
Trust us, this will work.

Yeah, I tried that. I tried everything, literally everything. Like Samsung told me they couldn't help me unless I sent it in. (Probably just send a replacement or do a full reset with a new partition and data)

I'm almost positive you're doing something wrong since you're the only one that is having this problem. I know @jkeuclid has already walked one person through this process step-by-step, I don't want to speak for him but he'd probably be willing to do the same for you.

Thank you. UPDATE-

I checked, my Baseband version and Build Number don't match.... MF1 vs. ML2. So that could be presenting some of the problem. I'm going to try to find a partition file for stick 4.3 then rehash everything through ODIN and attempt an update. Any other suggestions anyone?

Did you ever figured this out? I'm having the same issue. Can't update using the cfg file.

Just my quess but the OP and others in this thread have possibly problem understanding relationship of Odin with Stock Recovery

If your phone is stock 4.3 and you have the 444 MB update renamed to update.zip already moved over to microSD card.....

See if this little video helps you

Please help as ODIN is the only way I have been able to update, OTAs fail and recovery install from cache, external SD fails. Everything but Odin fails, so anybody help?

Device details-

SGH-i537 AT&T running 4.3 Official Unrooted Stock

Thanks!!!




Please I need your help, I was trying to upgrade to 4.4 from 4.3 ML2, on i537, but when i did, I lost my wifi and camera and media, (I mean , I cant play any song, show me a message that cant play, "File not Suppoted') anyways, the help that I need is if you can help me with your stock rom, so I can flash my phone with your files, please. Im downgrade to 4.3 again and I used one backup that I did before upgrade, but still not work wifi and media, I already flashed the moden.bin from xda to fix wifi, but still not work, I want to try to flash a Real stock rom, and see what happen, cause Im very stress...
