    hello, ive made an account to ask about what i should do with my phone. i rooted it a while back, and i deleted some files that were essential to connect to wifi and google play. i cannot log into my google accounts with any app at all, and i cannot connect to wifi at all. i tried to find any stock firmware for my phone, but apparently there is no firmware to download. this is more of an annoyance than anything, but when i get an upgrade id like to transfer my application data over to a new phone and not have to start all over again.

    thank you very much for helping :D

    version L710VPUDOH1 (sprint sph-l710; 4.4.2 kitkat)

    NJ2 is the current version at Sammobile, are you sure about OH1?

    OH1 is a security patch from Nov. 2015. Not sure why Sammobile doesn't have it.

    im 100% sure that my phone uses OH1, and last time i used kies it wouldn't work on my phone at all.

    i guess im looking for the files that would be in the stock firmware, because im pretty sure i could just redownload and my phone would be okay.

    Disregard my last two post. Seems that the l710t also has a OH1 and that is all I have been able to find so far. Still searching. Not looking good.

    The official firmware is Android 4.4.2 The version numbers on the OTA updates are for patches issued later. I really don't see a problem with flashing NJ2 which should eventually get the OTA and update to OH1.

    It shouldn't. There have been conflicting reports. Use titanium to backup app data first. Then after, if data is lost, re root and restore app data. Just back it up to external sd.

    hello again, I recently had to switch carriers, so I have an s7 now. I flashed my s3 with nj2, and it worked and didn't delete any of my data. theres a slight issue with google play still, but I'm pretty sure I can figure it out.

    thank you again for all your help!!
