    If you are Showing a CRC1 you have the latest Security fix to you phone ...

    This would mean you dont have a rooted phone and that all is fine with your phone as a stock phone that has been updated with builds from TMobile OTA ...

    Do not try to install RC29 or other flash builds unless you are trying to root you phone and then only if you have a good guide and ALL the proper files ...

    If you are not sure ASK 1st .. DONT Brick and then ask for help ...

    yes, if your trying to root you still need to revert to RC29 create root then upgrade using rooted builds to RC30 then RC33 then a rooted cupcake AKA 1.5 build....

    :thinking: does that mean that after rooting I have to install those updates sequentially?
