I had another thread for this, but I figured it would be good to repost it since I didn't know what I had stumbled upon at first.

For all of those who have soft bricked their phones, I present to you to the MF3 TAR files to flash it back to stock via ODIN.

https://mega.co.nz/#!WEEzSA7Z!aB4673...FBcQAZjc1X7wAE

And for those that aren't sure as to where to put the files when flashing via ODIN, while it should be obvious, I have attached a picture that @xrandallx posted to help those that need it.

It's known issue with MEGA, it works best if your using Firefox or Chrome. If the download keeps freezing keep reloading it will eventually work...

Once somebody can grab the files I suggest they be uploaded to several locations, and perhaps a torrent file.

---Edit---
Maybe a mod can edit the title to include something like [Release]? As is stands now people might miss the thread by thinking it's a question being asked.

AWESOME, simply fantastic! It seems that the picture has been moved, however. Any chance we can get a re-up?


EDIT: The only reason I'm asking is because I have been on MF3 since I purchased my phone. I assume, that if anything happens, I can use the existing guides for MDL, and just replace the files with MF3, right...?

The files are pretty self explanatory. Platform in PDA, modem in Phone, csc in csc, bootloader in bootloader. Only have auto-reboot checked. Ignore the dll file.

Edit, even better ^^^, haha posted while I was typing

No, if you on MF3 and attempt to load any firmware below it such as MDL you'll end up with a brick (which this will fix, grant it). This has more use for people brick their MF3 devices using MF3-based firmwares.

Don't mind me, I misread your post... - Thanks for clearing that up @jd1639.

You won't end up with a brick and the Odin guide for mdl firmware will work just fine. It's a guide. If you don't know what you're talking about don't post
