    *I dont even know what this update is for, I can't find anything on it.*

    So I found out that on the 25th or 26th there was an update for the Verizon GS3. Every time I try to update, it gives me this error (see below) after it reboots. I should also probably note that when it reboots, you briefly see "Booting into recovery" in the top left corner, though it doesn't actually boot into recovery. I was rooted, but I did a full unroot with SuperSU, and it still doesn't work. I dont want to flash a stock image because of all my app data that I do not want to lose.

    Here is what the update screen looks like: [​IMG]

    And after the update: [​IMG]

    Scroll down a little bit on that same box: [​IMG]

    Please someone help me! This is driving me crazy!

    What version does it say you are on now?

    It says I am on 4.1.2. Also, to picord, I don't know how I would've. Unless I did it by accident somehow.

    I would root again and flash update. I pulled the update file from download location and manually installed in cwm recovery. I was running mb3 with md1 radios after radio probs. I was having issues getting it to run update automatically. At some point i had mf1 radios on md3 build. Installing update. Zip manually did the trick for me. Cwmr even kept root during.
    I did not have to flash entire image. I was on all stock though.

    Can you provide me with a link for the update? Also, I *was* on stock rooted. And if you mind telling me what this update is for? 4.2? I'll try what you said tomorrow because I don't have access to my pc today.

    Ugh. I'm a bit worried now. I cant even root now. My device isn't showing up on my PC(sometimes it does) and in odin it says failed every time I try to flash something.

    So its been about 3 months now. Problem still persists. Again, I can not flash anything with ODIN(307), or update the phone. I have tried with Kies and in the phone. I can boot into download mode and recovery mode fine. Any help would again be greatly appreciated. I don't have access to my pc atm but any suggestions are still appreciated.

    *The phone runs flawlessly, I just want to be able to root again :(*

    Been on this for about 10mins, videos I have seen have done nearly instantly. I don't want to disconnect anything...

    I tried again twice. Same issue. I'm going to uninstall all drivers etc and try again.

    Nup, still not working. Any more suggestions?

    So far I have tried:
    Odin(for root)
    Kies(for updating)
    Casual
    Uninstalling kies/drivers and reinstalling and retrying all
    All recognize the device, but nothing happens.

    I've got nothing else mate.

    Maybe open a thread over on XDA - a problem shared 'n all that!

    One last try.....

    I'm not sure if you are rooted or not? I don't think you are, but check this.

    Go into settings > about phone > and repeatedly press 'Build Number' and see if it gives you access to developer settings.

    If it does go to settings > developer options and set root access to Apps and ADB.

    If that doesn't work I'm at a loss. :thinking:
