    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.

    was thinking of doing that but i want to have the metro one before i start messing with stuff so i could restore it back to normal for warranty purposes.

    Any news yet i noticed that Nuttmeg released the metro stock recovery but still wondering if someone will be making an official stock 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.

    Yes, one Triangle Away pass, taking out supersu or superuser and we are done for warranty purposes.

    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

    I wonder how long is going to take to Samsung to release the firmware? I know they are slow but this taking more than usual.

    why do people think the firmwares get released? they are either leaked or made by people.

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

    kies thing is only on select models, and its more of for updates. sammobile is for leaked firmware tars

    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

    I find it very irritating that Sammy hasn't release nothing for the metro version. Been checking every other day and nothing.
