Does anyone have a stock MJA file I can flash to my S4 through ODIN?

Had some issues with my device and basically thats the only thing that can be flashed to it thanks to KNOX. The only thing my phone can do is get into download mode.. I think everything else has been wiped.

Sounds like a soft brick. But no worrys since u can get to download mode. Your gonna have to push phillz recovery thru odin. Then flash a rooted mja rom

When pushing recovery, soon As phone goes to restarts n vibartes pull battery dont let it fully load. Put battery back in and hold power vol up n home to go to recovery. Lettin ur phone fullin powering after puahin recovery thru odi. Can cause u to lose recovery

Im sorry MJ7 (Verizon) is what im looking for. Right now my phone doesnt have a recovery and it seems like the only way to get my phone back to stock is to flash a stock MJ7 file through odin.

Well thts something ur gonna have to find in the verizon section. We only deal with sprint roms. But find an unroot tar file for your phone n push tht thru odin. That will bring u back to stock.

So - flashing this and then Odining the official MJA thing in the general discussion subforum should update my ROM/Modem and firmware to 4.3?

But why would you want to do that? If you want MJA everything & don't care about the restricted MJA bootloader, then just flash the MJA tar file with PC Odin.

If you want everything MJA except the bootloader, then follow this guide to individually update the ROM, kernel, modem, & recovery to MJA and leave the bootloader at MF9.

Yes but you'll trip Knox (idk if that matters to you) in the process of flashing a custom recovery to be able to flash this

So by triping knox I would have to flash something via odin? or it would just revert back to stock recovery and boot up fine.?

BTW I already have a custom recovery I have Philz adavnced edition..

Im just trying to flash something fully stock even if its still rooted and the recovery changes or stays the same

Tripping knox will not have any adverse consequences other than that your bootloader flag will be 0x1 instead of 0x0

To flash this you need a custom recovery right? Well to get a custom recovery, the installation of one will trip your knox flag

    Simple. Stock rom, zipaligned and rooted. Will add some goodies later.

    Note: Devs ARE FREE to use this as a base to update their roms. No need to ask. No need to PM. Nothing. I don't even really care if you give credit or not since it's just a stock rom. Have fun :good:

    • MJA Stock Kernel w/ init.d and bootanimation.zip support: Temporarily removed
      - Enables bootanimation.zip support instead of using Samsung's default *.qmg files. Includes a a Nexus bootanimation.zip so you can know if it worked. Also enables support for running /system/etc/init.d scripts at boot.

    [SIZE=+1] HUGE HUGE NOTE. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE 4.3 FIRMWARE. THAT WILL NEED TO BE PULLED FROM A 4.3 OTA'ED DEVICE AS SAMSUNG DECIDED TO PATCH THE MODEM INSTEAD OF PACKAGING THE ENTIRE THING.[/SIZE]
