[Q] Help...SGH-I337M....Can not ROOT, Can not see phone in DL mode in ODIN
I have a Bell SGH-I337M. First off, my big mistake is I forgot to backup my stock firmware. I would like to return my phone to Stock so I can back it up but I can not.
I originally installed CM10.1 nightly as directed on cyanogenmod.org
Wasn't happy with the nightly, and decided to install Google Play Edition ROM. I like the way it works, except I can not Root or see my phone in ODIN when its in download mode.
So far from what I've read is I can only flash the stock firmware back through ODIN.
When I try to root it with motochopper it always comes up failed.
The version of Google Play Edition Rom is for the GT-I9505G but thats the one that Galaxy4root.com said to use for the Canadian version. I'm thinking this might be the issue for not being able to see the phone in ODIN or be able to root.
*I can see the phone in ODIN when my phone is booted up as normal*
*I had root when I had CM10.1, but its gone now that I have Google Play Edition*
Also, I downloaded I337M/I337MVLUAMDJ_I337MOYAAMDJ_BMC.zip and when I try to use CWM to Install from .ZIP it says:
Can't open /external_sd/I337M/I337MVLUAMDJ_I337MOYAAMDJ_BMC.zip (bad)
I've tried downloading this stock firmware from multiple sites and always get the same message.
Please any help would be greatly appreciated!
