Thumbs up Unofficial M919NUVUAMF2 Working!!!!

Here you have the Unofficial M919NUVUAMF2 firmware made by me flashable with Odin working 100%.
First of all I want to thank techguy1214, exel and dulal18, without their files and threads would have been impossible for me to do it.
After many unsuccessful flash attempts using the firmware provided by techguy1214 in this thread:
[CONFIRMED WORKING] [ODIN] MetroPCS - M919N (UVUAMF2) STOCK ODIN Flashable

and using the files provided dulal18 in this thread:
http://androidforums.com/metropcs-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/773303-guide-how-return-stock-if-you-have-flashed-tmobile-odin-tars.html

Using heimdall I opened the .pit file included in dulal18's thread and found that there is an extra partition for sbl1.mbn, this file was also present in BOOTLOADER_M919NUVUAMF2... and was not included in the .tar that was posted by techguy1214/exel in their post.
What I did was to decompress all files posted by dulal18 and repacked in a new .tar file with similar structure as exel .tar but adding sbl1.mbn using Cygwin.
Flashed with Odin 3.07 as PDA and everything went ok. Now I have a brand new perfectly working unroot MPCS M919NUVUAMF2. The only downside is that it shows “custom” in system.

Link (thanks nuttmeg)
https://www.copy.com/s/X073cR993PrD/M919NUVUAMF2_Non-Official.zip

1. Download the above .zip file and extract the .tar file in the archive and save it somewhere

2. Reboot your phone to download mode.

To get download mode shut down the device. After it shuts off completely simultaneously press the Down volume key+ Home button + press the power button .

3. Start Odin

4. Click on the PDA button and browse to the .tar file that you extracted in step 1 and select it

5. DO NOT PUT .PIT FILE AND DO NOT TICK REPARTITION

6. Connect the USB cable and wait for the ID:COM section to turn blue

7. Click start to flash

8. Do not disconnect the cable or turn off the device once the flash has started, it’s going to take some time to flash, when finish exit Odin and disconnect USB.

9. Let the phone start and Voila!!!!!!

Nice work bud, but to get rid of the custom status just use triangle away before powering down the phone, and after flashing the tar you should be official.

Are you trying to decompress the .tar? It should be flashed as is.

This is not to root your S4 if thats what you wanted. I gave you the link to the root instructions in the thread you created. What brought you here?

Yea, I got a new one. I was gonna buy the blue gsm S3 Metro is selling now (cause I needed a phone and the s3 was the best i could afford) but my girl said she would pay the difference if i wanted to get an s4. So i have a new S4 and I'm gonna get the original S4 fixed and prolly sell it. Thanks for asking nutt

I did the same for her I gave her my Esteem when I got the S3. Then when I was thinking about getting S4 she wanted to upgrade to the S4 too but could only afford the S3 so I made up the difference, she got an S4 and my S3 went to her sister. Then mine broke.

Yea, shes coo tho

Im still bothered about the broken S4 and I'm thinking about getting a more substantial case than the thin elago I have now. I dropped my S3 so many times and in so many ways and just couldn't kill that thing. I feel that the only reason the S4 broke was because that decorative metal band that goes around the phone, that was added to satisfy those that complained that the S3 was all plastic and felt cheap, doesn't absorb shock the way plastic can (even with a case on). Sure, the S4 looks much more "premium" but at a cost of a lot of durability. The funny part is that most of those that called the S3 "cheap" are the same people that have to cover their "ipremium" device with silly plastic and rubber cases. Id prefer the metal wasn't there and that i didn't need to get a silly case.

Agree with you 100%. Plastic could look cheap but is way more resistant than any aluminum that gets deformed after any fall.

I'm not an expert but it looks like a connection problem. Did you install the Samsung drivers? Are you putting your phone on download mode?

It shuts down on its own? Thats a new one...I suggest downloading the tar again, in case yours was corrupt in some way. Then try the Odin process again.

Or, you can try flashing the MF2 deodexed rom over what you have now and see if it does anything.

I see...well, as I said, try odin again. Odin and the tar have brought me back to stock a number of times.

You can also try to flash the MF2 rom. It may help you out...it may not. Far as I can tell, these are the options available. Let us know how it works out.

Maybe try flashing the Tmobile tar in Odin.

If it boots up for you after that, you can try this tar again.

Default stock

hey so i was testing out cf auto root for some guys on my stock metro s4 and io screwed it up and gave it to a buddy to fix. he ended up flashing the phone to be tmobile the radio kernel baseband the whole nine yards. do you know if this will put me back to out of the box stock metropcs?
if anyone can point me in the right direction too that would help. i work for metro pcs and have a supply of s4 to get information from but messing with the root is something im not too savvy in

Yes, this flash will put your phone completely Metro stock, that's the main purpose of this thread. If you want to root again you must use cf-auto root or flash a custom recovery and then supersu.
