Default [Q] Where can I get the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant?

I want to update from MDK to ME7.

When I plug the phone into the computer it mounts as a media device.

How do I get the Upgrade assistant?

Surprised at how many psychics are on this forum. If you upgrade to me7 you lose the exploitable bootloader and cant flash custom recovery. Me7 still has root and safestrap so you can still get custom roms that route. If youre still interested you could always try taking the ota or download the stock me7 image and flash via odin. When it comes to the upgrade assistant ive never used that so sorry cant help on that front.

Hit thanks if I helped you out. Doing a little bit of reading goes a long way. Sent via tapatalk.

Thanks I upgraded using kies and it worked like a charm but then i tried to do a backup using twrp and got stuck in a odin bootloop but thanks to this site I was able to get out of that boot loop with vol down and power. thank God. I thought I bricked it.

Like I was saying you cant flash a custom recovery on me7. Safestrap is your only option if youre looking to rom.
