So here I am with Beanstalk, getting terrible battery life, when I find a thread about an E980 baseband that will get my phone to deep sleep. I donwload it, TWRP recovery flash it, and my phone stays on the splash screen. I go back into recovery, and I can't use it, the touchscreen doesn't work. I try a hard reset, hard reset takes me back to TWRP, I tried .tot and .kdz flashing, my Win 8 laptop doesn't recognize the phone, says unknown device, I've tried every driver I could find, I keep getting the phone is disconnected error, the .kdz flash is stuck at 80%.
Any suggestions before I go back to Win 7 and give that a try?
