[ROM][ODIN]SPH-L900 MK4 (MK4 Modem/Kernel/Bootloader/ROM - Full Restore - Unrooted)
First, a HUGE thanks goes @garwynn
for being my partner through all of this and then to @sfhub
(for teaching me how to create Odin One-Click.exe files and creating the original thread I'm using as a template for this one), @agat63
(for helping me get the hang of what sfhub started teaching me), @MoHoGalore
for helping test and put together so many of these one-clicks and to everyone else in our community who makes this possible!
This Odin One-Click.exe contains the Stock MK4 Bootloader, Kernel, Modem and ROM for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SPH-L900). Yes, that means this comes with the full Knox Bootloader.
There has been no change to the ROM from the initial build released by Samsung.
This will NOT trigger the Yellow Triangle NOR will it increment the Odin flash count.
This one-click resets your whole phone to the stock MK4 experience, similar to a factory restore and it may wipe all data
. It also contains the full bootloader and Knox.
1: Backup anything important and Disable any PINs.
During this process your phone's software will be returned to the Stock setup. All system data will be lost. To be safe, it is best to archive your backup off your phone, ie on your PC or Dropbox.
2: Install Samsung USB/Android drivers (if necessary).

3: Download the MK4 Stock ROM One-Click.
SPH-L900_MK4_Full Restore_UNROOTED (Compressed Archive).exe
(Resets user data)
4: Unzip One-Click ROM using 7zip (this package is a self-extracting exe you should just be able to double-click on it after download and it will do the rest).
5: Start the Odin One-Click.
Navigate to the location where the SPH-L900_MK4_Full Restore_UNROOTED.exe was saved upon extract from the 7Zip archive.
Double-click on SPH-L900_MK4_Full Restore_UNROOTED.exe. *On Vista or newer, you may need to right-click on the file and Run as Administrator.
6: Place phone in Download Mode.
- Power phone completely off.
- Press and hold Volume Down, Home and Power buttons, all at the same time.
- Release the buttons only when the ‘Warning!!’ message appears.
- Press [Volume Up] to enter Download mode.
7: Connect USB cable to PC and phone.
Odin should show a yellow COM port in the second column. If you do not see a yellow COM port, you may need to run the Odin One-Click as Administrator and/or unplug/plugin the USB cable after starting Odin One-Click.
8: Start Odin flash process.
9: Complete - PASS!
Status should change to green PASS! At this point your phone should automatically reboot.
Download and install ZArchiver
on your phone. Use it to unpack the Odin One-Click 7zip self-extracting exe file (long press on the 7zip exe. Select "Open As Archive". Select the One-Click.exe and then select Extract). Use Mobile Odin to Open File the SPH-L900_MK4_Full Restore_UNROOTED.exe. FYI - Modem will not flash with Mobile Odin.
The boot process will take slightly longer than usual during which time you'll see the Sprint 4G logo screen.
Congratulations! You've flashed the Factory Restore MK4 build!
