    Does anyone have a original d2mtr ROM that I can use to restore a SCH-R530M?

    Tried installing CM10 and it stops at the CM loading screen. Like an idiot, I wiped the cache where the backup I made was.

    Thanks!

    So I got this R530M as a warranty replacement. I did the 4.1.2 update and enabled the dual app menu. I installed TWRP and backed up the ROM -- which saved to the onboard storage. I forgot to move the backup to the External SD card.

    I loaded the CM 10.2 stable zip on the SD and installed with TWRP. It hung at the CM guy with the arrow spinning around it. I went to go back to the stock ROM and realized I just had wiped the cache.

    I tried installing a stock ROM from http://www.shabbypenguin.com/?developer=MetroPCS_Samsung_SG3(CDMA-White) but no go. it hangs in Odin.

    Not sure what to try next.

    o ok well the original issue was the latest version of cm does not flash in twrp, you must install cwm for it to flash properly.. you can safely flash cwm onto your device using odin, should be on that guide somewhere.. as for the "stock" rom, if you want root and have recovery access, then flash metropolis which is basically pure stock with root, or numbertwo rom which is same but with theming and little tweaks..

    im not sure how far you went in odin.. but if you still have access to twrp than you can safely flash either of the roms mentioned.. i recomend wiping data and manually formating the system partition before you make your official rom choice

    Does anyone have a copy of metropolis that would be willing to PM a link to me for? ShabbyPenguin's site keeps giving me a "size mismatch" error when downloading. It fails at 20-30% every time.
    GRRRR

    I know a lot of times if I have trouble with links. I'll just right click them and open in new tab or new window. Always works for me :)
