messed up update to MF9 - Help?
Rooted Sprint S4 with Odin & CF-Auto-Root-jfltespr-jfltespr-sphl720.tar
Installed Chainfire SuperSU, Titanium Backup Pro and Goo.manager, TWRP.
I was able to enable HotSpot with files.
I made nandroid backups twice, last just two days ago.
I wanted to upgrade from MDL to MF9.
I Odin"ed", mf9fullupgrade.tar. This appeared to take, but wifi would not turn on nor HotSpot.
So I went ahead and tryed to flash MF9 software with = bfeb51f4befc9f910dff1c6070f2d387aaac37de.update_SP H-L720_MDL_CSB_user_RP_to_MF9_CSB_user_RP.
I put this zip on a blank sd and put in phone while off and battery out.
Turned on with volume button up. Never could get to boot to screen with choices to choose from.
NOTE: Volume up button not so good. With the phone on, just normal: I can volume down, but to increase volume button doesn't scroll volume indicator across screen.
Anyways, after a couple attempts at booting "vol up" I woiuld get in small font, top left in blue, recovery boot but it would go to TWRP.
I finally restored through TWRP my last backup.
I am now getting a shield icon in notificaiton area that says "Prevention Information", "an application attempting unpermitted actions, reboot now".
Software is MF9 and baseband is MF9. In app manager, I do not have apps to sd, which is probably the least of my problems now.
Any Ideas on how to recovery and get wifi back. Maybe just get back to stock. I know with Up volume button intermintent could be a problem.
Should I have not tried done this while rooted??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
