I haven't finished downloading yet or unzipping to see if the file is correct but the zipped file size sends a bit small for an official ROM. Also, they package the kernel separately? That's weird.

Has anyone used these?
Flash the SPR-L720VPUAMF9-20130626162512.zip via TWRP ?
Then the KERNEL-SPR-L720VPUAMF9-1372121308.tar is flashed via Odin?

I used it myself and it worked very well. For me, a fresh MF9 flash via PC Odin was more stable and smoother than doing the MDL to MF9 update.

If you flash the full MF9 tar, you don't need to go back and flash the kernel tar.

Thank you!
I am on MDL w/ many mods.
I guess I am gonna have to go this route, although, phone is working as I like.
But, I guess I have to continue to move forward?
Sigh, I also will guess after doing this will wipe out everything, and I have to start all over.
Definitely gonna perform a fullbackup first, and then remove my ext. sdram.

Does one lose root and custom recovery if flashed either via odin or via cwm/twrp?

I should say, can i still flash supersu if i flash this file or do i have to reroot/unlock my phone again?

Yes, you'll lose root and custom recovery. After flashing this, use Odin again to flash a custom recovery then flash SuperSU within custom recovery to gain back root.

Is it possible for someone to make a NOData version. (Got kind of spoiled from the E4GT)

I noticed the link you posted is for a stock mf9 firmware zip and kernel is a tar, where do I get the stock mf9 firmware tar?
