    Hey i figured a new thread with all the links in one post and not spread out might be a better idea than what it was in the 4.3 thread.

    Modem (CWM flashable)
    Modem (Odin flashable)


    Over-The-Air firmware, use this to upgrade from stock MF2 to NA1

    Odin tar (full firmware) This will install knox and lock you to 4.3.

    Slowly but surely these will be uploaded to shabbypenguin.com :)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Stock deodex'd rom:

    1) wipe data/dalvik/cache
    2) flash rom
    3) flash 4.3 modem (if you dont have it already)
    4) flash supersu/superuser to gain root

    enjoy 4.3 without the new locked bootloaders etc. im working on metropolis 1.5.0 which will have knox stuff removed from the rom side (flashing this wont lock you down with knox, just there is knox related stuff in the rom).

    ok shabby :D after a few hours ive come to the conclusion that its script related for the data issues on de-odexed rom.. I flashed using a diff script while still on mf2 and got my service to work but then broke wifi.. so im trying to figure out which lines exactly help (in my case anyway) hope this info helps you out :D running a few more tests now that I got things working haha but I need to go to bed, talk to ya tomorrow

    thanks to ldrifta's assistance im now uploading a 4.3 deodex'd rom.

    its stock rom, deodex'd, ive added lean kernel to fix wifi issues with older bootloaders, you will need the 4.3 modem you can find it on shabbypenguin.com in odin or cwm flashable form. youll need supersu, we cant figure out why root isnt working when its patched in so for now you are gunna have to root it yourself afterwards, sorry.
