You use Odin.

It'll completely wipe everything, it's a factory stock image.

Do you happen to have another download link other than the one from Samsung? It is VERY slow. ETA on 4.4 is 9 hours!

EDIT - Never mind. There is this new thing called GOOGLE that, when you type in the right words, you can find other downloads!

No, a lollipop rom simply won't boot from a 4.3 bootloader, there's no way to simply bypass it.

The phone will boot, hit the aboot checkpoint, it'll see the lollipop rom loaded, and it'll abort the boot sequence.

Verizon galaxy S3 (SCH-I535) - Boot loop
Hi,

I have a Verizon galaxy S3 ( SCH-I535) running android 4.4 NE1 firmware.

Recently it went to a boot loop. On power on, it will boot upto colourful SAMSUNG name and reboot from there.

I can go to Download or Recovery mode. Tried factory reset and wipe cache multiple times.
I have also flashed latest NE1 (from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2795659)
using Odin + factory reset. That also didn't help.

I tried Software repair Assistance. But it doesn't recognize the phone when connected to computer.

I took it to Best-buy Samsung experience centre and they flashed the image. Same behaviour.

Anyone seen same problem before? Any suggestions on what I can do next?
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Unfortunately you can not achieve that goal. With the official 4.4.2 release the bootloader was locked. This means you can not install a true custom recovery, change kernels, and there are only three roms available at the moment. The ROMs are the stock 4.4.2 (what you have), PaulPizz's ROM, and SuperLiteROM. The dev for SLM is currently on the brink of posting a new release - v5, but I think it is still 4.4.2 based. It is wishful thinking to expect VZW to release a 5.x.x official ROM for this device. Such a release is needed for us to get anything past what we have.

I have SuperLiteROM v3 on my i535, but I'm not using it as a phone. I picked it up in May to expand my customizing skills, not knowing beforehand that it was locked down. I used Towelroot to obtain root. I then installed busybox to enable me to install the Unofficial Safestrap Recovery. Links to both can be found in the OP of this thread. Only after those two steps did I flash SLM onto slot 1 of Safestrap. You can find a link to SLM in the signature of the originator of the SafeStrap thread.
