Nothing fancy, just the Boost/VM variant of 4.4.2 Kit Kat tar, captured from Kies.

NOTE: For those Boost/VM users who flashed the Sprint ND8 version, this WILL flash successfully over the ND8 bootloader.


- This will (should) not wipe your data.

- As with everything, you are responsible for what you do to your device.

- I have Deodexed and Odexed rooted stock zips ready to test if someone wants to give them a go. Let me know.

Download Link

Instructions:

1. Download file to your PC(somewhere you can find it!)
2. Put your phone into Download/Odin mode
3. Start Odin(I suggest the latest, 3.09 is out now I think, I used 3.07)
4. Click on PDA, find tar file, click it to put it into PDA slot
5. Click Start
6. Takes a good 15 minutes, so sit back and chill. It will reboot on it's own, and you now have Kit Kat.

Oh, and because I know someone will ask, YES, this does have the Knox bootloader on it

No dice. Wiped cache and dalvik, flashed modem and wiped cache and dalvik again for good measure. Wi-Fi won't even turn on.

It did the same thing for me on nd8 boot loader. Try a custom kernel perhaps. KT747 was recommended to me for that fix, but I flashed ndc before I got around to trying it

Im going to stick with the nd8 modem. I thought about trying this but everything is working fine. I use virgin mobile and i use xda. When i bought my s3 i couldn't find kit kat for virgin so i researched the sprint tar. I was only on the stock virgin 4.3 for a day, and rooted and what not. I odined sprint s3 stock nd8 tar through odin3.07 with reboot unticked- pulled battery - odined philz touch recovery(spr) reboot unticked - pulled battery. Then i booted into recovery flashed newest philz (lte) recovery. Then i flashed bilgerryans wicked x rom. Phone is now rooted, deodexed, and has custom kernal. Phone works great, especially since i changed data setting for throttling. Hope this helps someone. My exact steps i took to get my phone to awsomeness.

Just Odin'd my GS3 today with this and everything went well. My drop down notification bar says Virgin Mobile like it should. No problems except not receiving a 4G signal where I used to. It doesn't even say 3g. Is there something I should know about this? LOL. Any help appreciated.
