No offense, but this is rather obvious and not helpful.
I appreciate your efforts and wealth of experience, but that last comment just made me frustrated.
Don't take this personally.
I'm just annoyed that I'm still having this issue after having successfully rooted my phone. Only to screw it up later.
Ok i can get more details in the morning, but the device im working on i know its...
SPH-L710, has TouchWiz 4.4.2
its NJ3. (runs on Boost Mobile, but appears to be a Sprint device, no SIM card)
towelroot does not work on the kernel.
using Odin3 v3.09.exe to flash the custom recovery mods, I've had no success. I am very familiar with using odin and the program actually reports no failures.
The problem is, after I flash the custom recovery, then boot up recovery, it loads up the default recovery (even though odin says it successfully wrote to the recovery partition)
files I have tried
philz_touch_6.48.4-d2lte.tar.md5 (the galaxy s3 variant)
philz_touch_6.15.4-d2spr.tar.md5 (the carrier specific)
could this be a result of a locked bootloader? (if thats the case, odin usually reports a failure to flash)
please provide feedback. thank you. this is for a friend im helping for free.
