Default [Q] Accidentally wiped my nandroid

I'm almost too embarrassed to post this question, but... I accidentally formatted my data partition and as a result, deleted my nandroid back up of my stock ROM. I'm on a SG4 i337 with the MDL boot loader. I have no intention of taking the phone back to AT&T for service or anything like that, but in the off chance that I may want to sell the phone, or simply go back to stock, what are my options? Obviously I don't want to update my bootloader, so is there a stock image that I can flash that will allow me to keep my current bootloader?

Thanks,

Mike

Go to Sammobile and get the MDL firmware. Flash it through Odin. If you don't know what I am talking about, make sure you do some research and reading before you do it.

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.

Thanks Scott. And I'm a flash junkie, so I know what your're talking about So just clarify, I can flash the stock Sammy MDL and it won't screw up my boot loader?

Thanks again,

Mike

No it won't but you're going to want to keep WiFi off until you can freeze the att update app because it's going to want to up date you. Root and put a custom recovery and rom on as soon as you can. Make sure you plan ahead on this before flashing the firmware.
