flashed HARD-SPL.. now the update run..
hmm i thought i need HARD-SPL only for modded ROMs not for original dumps ?!
You need to hard SPL to by pass the signing check on the ROM Images. Unless you dump the ROM and rebuild it and sign it again you'll need Hard SPL.
Dumped/Reconstructed ROM's are different from official releases.
Also without HardSPL, official releases won't flash if the Carrier ID (CID) is different (i.e. can't put an T-Mob Rom on a Vodafone device).
