Default **Tutorial** Return to Boost stock

Before starting backup any necessary data, then:

1. Install Kies (has Samsung drivers)

1a. If you have a custom Recovery tool, do a factory wipe

2. Press and hold vol- and power until you reach the prompt, then hit vol+

3. Run Odin

4. Load MD5 into PDA slot

5. Start

This erases Root, yellow triangle, and AGAT/CWM: straight up stock.


edit: Make sure the MD5 is unzipped (7-Zip).

Meaning? This will erase download mode? If I flash this and it erases download mode then something goes awry how can I use Odin again? Say it aint so!

When flashing Boost S2 a yellow trinagle appears on the boot screen, most likely an indication that you voided your waranty. It is advisable to remove the yellow triangle before getting service, otherwise it is just unsightly.

It also erases any custom recovery tool (CWM) and puts you back to stock. Stock S2 has a minimal recovery tool and you can use Odin to reinstall CWM or AGAT or whatever else.

Just want to check before...can I use this to go back to stock from the cm10 Rom? No worries of bricking due to android versions or kernels?

The file is a .7z compressed. Get yourself winzip and decompress it, and that will give you the md5 file to put into Odin

Well if you go back to stock FG31 your phone will update itself back to current release FL24 (the phone does pull updated via WiFi too). If you are in a hurry, check out the one stop shop stickied at the top of the forum

Default Please help

I downloaded kies to my pc and Odin to my pc and I also have the unzipped md5 file on my pc but I need to be honest I really don't understand your tutorial. Could you please help make it a little easier to understand maybe a step by step. Im no expert with phones by any means and all I am trying to do is get this phone back to stock like the day it was opened and back to fl24 version. I would be highly appreciative for some help. Thank you in advance for your time.


This is what Ive tried/gathered
Kies will update to fl 24 once Im back to stock
odin on pc will flash me back to stock

Heres where im at when i push vol-/power then vol+ it brings me to a screen that says:

ODIN MODE (in red text)
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-D710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL

then theres a picture of the little green droid guy and under him it says

Downloading...
Do not turn off target!!

I got to this screen and ran odin on my pc with the data cable attached went to the pda tab loaded the md5 file into that tab hit start and I got a failed message the first time second time i got a failed message again. What am I doing wrong??

OK I repeated these steps to a Tee and it worked and my phone is now stock on FG31. The issue now is when I run kies it wants to update to GC01 and has no option to go to FL24. Is there anyway whatsoever I can get to FL24 instead of GC01? I would just prefer that because I was able to easily 1click root the FL24 version with no problems and didnt have to revert from the stock fl24 version at all.

Ok phone did some auto updates up till fl24 im now back where I wanted to be. If you hook it up to kies it wants to update to gc01 but I would rather not do that so again I thank you for your time and post but I toyed with it enough to get it right where i needed it to be sorry for my wall of text.

FL24 is ICS, GC01 is the newer JellyBean.


edit: portmike I tried to make the tutorial very ez to read and clear cut, many are not so straight forward.


example: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2059714

the more 'wordy' a tutorial is the more overwhelming.

If you want to get to FL24, first update your firmware from your android in your system settings from FG31 to FH29, then do the same thing to update from FH29 to FI22, then once again to update from FI22 to FL24.

Personally I would skip updating to FL24, keep FI22 on, root that with 'ExynosAbuse', then throw 'FOTAKill.apk' into your /system/apps/ to disable the notifications to update to FL24. The reason I say this is because FL24 crashes my phone practically every other time I turn my screen off, and then I have to peel off the case and pull the battery out to make it work again. That's really irritating.

You can stop the phone from ever looking for an update by disabling the Google Services Framework for it. Just use either Autorun Manager or Autostarts (both available from the play store). In Autostarts go into the after startup section and it will be the third Google Services Framework listed (it will have update in its description when you select it).

Ya I toyed with it last night and I got back to Stock fl24 which is where I felt comfortable being. I just didn't want to brick my phone and I appreciate all the info and help from you guys. This method was waaay easier then when I was trying all this on my DroidX awhile back ago. But again thanks to all. I'm sure I'll be back when I screw something else up

You can skip all those update and just odin the fi22 from Rwilco12's Repo here:

Rwilco12's Android Repository - Downloads

You do not even have to extract with 7zip. It is already ready to put in the PDA slot.

Also. Is it a Boost phone or a Sprint flashed to Boost phone? If it is on Sprint firmware then you'll have to mess with the mms settings. But if it is a Boost phone then I'd claim warranty or something.

click on the bold MD5 in post #1 and you can download it. it is Seven zip compressed so get Seven zip and decompress it to have the actual MD5 file to put in Odin.

Could you please help make it a little easier to understand maybe a step by step. Im no expert with phones by any means and all I am trying to do is get this phone back to stock like the day it was opened and back to fl24 version. I would be highly appreciative for some help. Thank you in advance for your time.


This is what Ive tried/gathered
Kies will update to fl 24 once Im back to stock
odin on pc will flash me back to stock

Heres where im at when i push vol-/power then vol+ it brings me to a screen that says:

ODIN MODE (in red text)
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-D710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL

then theres a picture of the little green droid guy and under him it says

Downloading...
Do not turn off target!!

I got to this screen and ran odin on my pc with the data cable attached went to the pda tab loaded the md5 file into that tab hit start and I got a failed message the first time second time i got a failed message again. What am I doing wrong??

OK I repeated these steps to a Tee and it worked and my phone is now stock on FG31. The issue now is when I run kies it wants to update to GC01 and has no option to go to FL24. Is there anyway whatsoever I can get to FL24 instead of GC01? I would just prefer that because I was able to easily 1click root the FL24 version with no problems and didnt have to revert from the stock fl24 version at all.

Ok phone did some auto updates up till fl24 im now back where I wanted to be. If you hook it up to kies it wants to update to gc01 but I would rather not do that so again I thank you for your time and post but I toyed with it enough to get it right where i needed it to be sorry for my wall of text.
How long did it take? Mine is stuck on
<ID:0/003> cache.img
for like an hour.

Nver mind, used a different pc and it worked.
