Ok, so I've followed the procedure using the following firmware.
Unfortunately, I don't have root and when I dial *#1234# to check the firmware versions, I get an error message saying "Connection problem or invalid MMI code".
Does URDLV work on this version of firmware? What does this error message mean?
I used URDLV on my previous firmware successfully (N9005XXUBMI7_N9005TELBMI2_N9005XXUBMI6_HOME.tar.m d5).
I have read a lot of this thread (but not all) and from what I've read, I suspect MJ7 can't be rooted using URDLV but I just want confirmation. I did have issues with the modem not flashing, which caused the wifi to not turn on, but that was resolved by extracting the modem.bin file and flashing it separately.

With any luck, my stupidity will awaken Cthulhu and he will devour my more idiotic posts.
