Hopefully Sprint's working on the towers, I haven't had any of those issues since flashing the restore zip. I just thought of something..... Did you wipe cache and dalvic cache after flashing the restore? Because if you do it won't finish flashing all the files needed. You could try a re flash, and once it flashes, just reboot without doing anything else.

No I didn't wipe. I followed the instructions and only wiped data factory reset. But I do think Sprint is doing some work. They just started Northern Connecticut about a month ago and they already lit 4G on the highway around Meriden CT. I think it's my phone tho. I have to keep switching airplane mode or mobile data on and off till I see both 3G up and down arrows blinking. Otherwise it gets frozen with just the up green arrow constantly blinking. I would revert to cdma but I dont wanna miss lte lighting up in my area

Hi all:

Hi there I updated to MA7 then rooted the phone. I have Sprint Note 2. Can I still install new update through TWRP if samsung issues out another update in the future? If not, is there possibility to unroot and return to MA7 as stock? I watched the how to unroot but it requires LJC firmware.
By the way, anyone here knows how to backup the internal storage so that I won loose my setting?

Thanks in advance for your help.

This worked for me as well i was stuck on the firmware upgrade error on boot and only was able to get in download mode.

How this Happened - I tried down grading my MA7 to LJC
I flashed this file from the note2 toolkit - recovery-twrp-2.3.2.3-SPHL900 using oden 3.07
booted up fine ...

Thanks

Now whats the difference between the "All-in-one Ma7.zip" which is 19.4mb and the LJC-Ma7.zip which is like 224mb(the one posted here in the O/P)?

First is kernel and modem, update does everything inc. Rom.

does the first change the firmware or baseband? Basically my question is does the smaller package do the same as if I was on a stock phone and downloaded/installed the OTA?

If I'm moving anything to Ma7 I want to do it 100% as if I was unrooted and was on LJC and received the notification for the OTA. But I don't need the stock Ma7 ROM that I don't need.

But I'd like to avoid losing root and having to deal with Odin and reinstalling a recovery if at all possible. Reason being Odin and my computer wouldn't recognize my usb cable I had to use another one in the house but it isn't here and won't be for a week.

So if their is a method to do the above mentioned by flashing via recovery then that'd be the preferred method.

Again thank you!

The smaller package is essentially just the kernel and modem. The larger package is the OTA package directly from Google. Flashing it would be the same as if you allowed the OTA to install normally.
