Default At Risk!! M919NUVUAMF2 Firmware...Where?

I'm trying to find our stock firmware M919NUVUAMF2 unsuccessfully for all over the web (starting with sanmobile). Kies says there is not compatible for download. Is there any other place we could find it? Flashing stock for us is now impossible. Be careful friends and back up, back up and back up until we get it.

Is there anything Metro specific in the firmware? If you absolutely needed it to fix a soft brick you could probably use the Tmobile firmware.

Well now all you need to do is use cwm make a .tar back up, restore to stock and then make another back up. Then restore the first back up.

Now you have your stock rom(if your phone was still original rom for backup), and the recovery from nuttmeg.

adb shell getprop ril.serialnumber && getprop ro.serialno

this is a serial number, not your imei/esn/meid or really anything of value (at best i could register it on samsung.com and get a 50% off code for one item) but regardless, if someone is willing to PM me the 2 numbers it spits out i will try to get ahold of an odin tar

Usually you can get them on sammobile or download them from Kies if you need to do a recovery.

so just a little something i noticed. if you plug your phone in and start up kies it will give you the message "your device's current firmware version is not supported to update via kies". so now if you go to "tools" and select "firmware upgrade and initialisation" with your phone not plugged in it will ask for a model name and then a serial number. so if you use the correct model SGH-M919N and your serial number it will come back with "please check the model name and enter it." but if you enter the t-mobile model SGH-M919 with your serial it will attempt to restore your metro phone to the t-mobile model. still on the hunt for this firmware........ to be continued

Default Sorry Shabby

Hey sorry for not understanding i get it now the firmwares are leaked or either created not release. Sorry for asking news on if it would be released. So my next question is. does anyone have any news if someone is creating one. I would but im an idiot so yeah sorry I hope someone takes up the task of making one i would really appreciate it cuz i want to be able to upgrade to 4.3 when samsung releases it. Or maybe when they release that firmware there will be a leak for the metro users who knows. all im hoping for is a way to get to the official firmware so im able to upgrade if necessary. because currently im on an unofficial firmware and am really scared to try and flash to get back to stock.

absolute worst case if no one does, when 4.3 tw comes out you flash tmobiles version of it and edit apn's etc to get it working fully.
