Thumbs up [FIRMWARE][ODIN] All Sprint Firmwares {2/13/14}

Finally a way to flash modems/firmwares without needing to take the OTA!! This means no losing Root, no losing Recovery, no data wipe, just strictly updating the Firmware!!

There are two different versions available here, one includes the bootloader chain and the other does not, if you're unsure of which one to use, simply use the one without. (First one listed) None of these include the KNOX Bootloader. I didn't want to include it and have someone mistakenly flash it. I can produce these upon request, but this simply isn't necessary to update.

The download links are listed in the second post, but READ the instructions carefully as the procedure is very specific.

What you need:
  1. An extracted FirmwareAIO.tar.md5 from the second post
  2. Odin (I used 3.07, but I am pretty sure others work too)
  3. A PC... (duh)
  4. Sprint Galaxy S4
  5. A brain

Here is the procedure:
  1. Power OFF the phone (do not use reboot to download mode, do a full power off)
  2. Hold down the Volume down key and then press and hold the power Key.
  3. When the screen lights up, release both
  4. Press Volume up to Continue past the first screen, you should now be in Download Mode.
  5. Plug the phone into the PC with Odin
  6. Fire up Odin and select the modem tar.md5 file with the PDA button
  7. Click Start and Let it flash until it's done.
  8. It will auto reboot and you'll be all set.

NOTE: With MJA/MK2/NAE Firmware, some people report better success with turning Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time unchecked. Do the same flash, but when you see PASS on Odin, unplug the phone and Hold the Power key for 10 seconds to reboot.

I'll be waiting on whether or not network speeds and/or signal strengths are improved or degraded via this upgrade for me.

But thanks for the nice write up! These are always appreciated!

If you're on ForceROM 2.0 or greater, then you should already be on MDL firmware, because that was one of the things you had to do before upgrading.

But to tell which one you're on, go to settings, more and about phone. The last three characters of the baseband version will tell you what you're on.

Not entirely sure what you're asking here, but if you mean when the next OTA comes out I don't know the answer to that.
