DO NOT FLASH IF YOUR ON MDK AND WISH TO RETAIN YOUR CUSTOM RECOVERY! THIS WILL REMOVE THE LOKI EXPLOIT!

This is a new update for SCH-1545 taking users to VRUFNC5. This is the stock factory image. Also, If you need to go back to stock for whatever reason and this Odin tar doesn't work I suggest using the VRUFNC2 factory image from sextape instead.

For the sake of simplicity, I've also included a mirror to the MJ7 and MK2 "emergency" Full-wipe Odin tars as well MJ7 Full-Wipe and MK2 Full-Wipe


@Tomsgt made a great video of the process that can be viewed here



Information:

1. ROOT METHOD can be found here

2. Otherwise, Download Odin 3.09 here (Note: Bootloader = BL , PDA = AP , Phone = CP)

Directions:


No-Wipe

1. Unzip the file and you should have a tar.md5
2. Select the tar.md5 in Odin under PDA (or AP if using Odin 3.09) and keep Odin's default settings
3. Click start and wait for it to say Pass!


Full Wipe ( AKA Emeregency Repair)

1. Unzip the file and you should have a ALL_VZW_I545VRUFNC5_I545VZWFNC5_1151670_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
2. Select the tar.md5 in Odin under PDA (or AP if using Odin 3.09) and keep Odin's default settings
3. Extract the PIT file from your phone or Odin tar, also I've uploaded it here just in case.
4. Put the PIT file in PIT and load the the Odin tar.md5 in PDA (or AP if using Odin 3.09) then click start.

Surge - thanks for posting the NC5 tars! Anyone have access to a 32 gig model .PIT? I've tried to extract mine using Heimdall but it refuses to work, so if someone has the larger pit file I'd appreciate the help.

Edit: Never mind I opened up the factory wipe tar and extracted it.

Awesome work there @Surge1223. Upgraded from the NC2 leak to NC5 using the no-wipe file. Absolutely no issues or errors (finally). Now, just waiting for the OnePlus to officially release so I can throw my money at 4 of them and sell the S4, and possibly leave Verizon in the process.

Guys, if we flash the NC5 tar and the phone boots normally, will we be able to downgrade to MK2 after we test it, and most important, will the actual root for MK2 still function?

I would like to try the rom, but then come back to MK2, root, ss and restore my backup .

Thanks.

Dumb question...If we have this, why don't we have a rooted flashable ZIP? I assume these are similar to disk images; are we essentially waiting for someone to extract the proper bits from said images then build a flashable zip from them?

Surge has this. From another thread in the "General" section, he is holding off releasing it to avoid all the questions and confusion since it seems so many people are having difficulties with his pre-rooted leaked NC2 release and pounding him with problems and questions regarding that.

I completely understand his position on this even though I eagerly am awaiting pre-rooted NC5 myself. I had little problem doing the upgrade to his NC2 ROM coming from Hyperdrive and MJ7 personally, but others have had grief for some reason. :cowboy:

Same here. I did have some difficulty and had to improvise a little but I referred to the instructions for the NC2 upgrade and eventually managed to be on NC2 with Safestrap. Solved my problems on my own with the information that was already available.

so to be clear, if i use surge's Upgrade to 4.4.2 and keep root method to NC2. Then can i use the NC5 odin.tar NO-WIPE file to upgrade to NC5 and retain root?

    To all:

    I get a lot of messages about no-wipe resulting in error messages when downgrading from NG6 to NC5. This is to be expected, you can't expect everything to just work out great when downgrading from a newer version to older, and you guys should be using full wipe anyways to get rid of data errors. If keeping your data is that important to you, then I suggest backing up to your pc first.

    P.S. Be thankful you can even downgrade in the first place

    I like to tell people it's in the 180-200 range but truthfully it's probably closer to average.

    @Surge1223 I'm going to ask to be 100% certain, but I'm on rooted stock MK2..... The no-wipe will allow me to retain root, correct?

    U will lose root.
