    hi

    need some help. i rooted my phone, and then installed a custom recovery. i rebooted into recovery mode and flashed cm11. everything loaded fine. i tried to reboot back into recovery mode to install google apps, and the phone will not go into recovery mode. it says it its, then goes to a normal boot. why wont it boot into recov? because it cant see my sd? i had the backups on my sd.

    so now im stuck. what can i do??


    **********edit
    it finally rebooted into recovery. it showed all of the files on my sd card there. but its not showing my card once i'm booted and running. anyone else having this issue in cm11?

    As this is the forum for the International models, I have asked the mods to move your thread to the All Things Root forum for the L720, Sprint model that you have as they should be able to advise you better.

    Thank you for the kind heads-up, ironass :thumbup:.

    I've moved the thread as requested to the Sprint ATR area.

    Best of luck to the OP!

    question for you..i'm trying to go back to stock. everything is working fine on the version of cm i downloaded, except for the fact that i cannot access my sd card. so i want to go back to stock until there is a more stable version to flash.

    i have everything downloaded. im booting my phone into download mode and odin is recognizing it (yellow box). i load the md5 file into the pda seciton of odin and hit start. i get fail each time. i have tried different cables and ports. any ideas?

    What file are you tryin to load in odin? It should be a Tar file. If it is a zip then you most likely can flash it in recovery.

    It is a tar file. I was in 4.3 before I flashed CM. I realized that the file I was trying to use through Odin, was sprint 4.2.2 Can I load a 4.2 if I was on 4.3? Or do I need to find a stock 4.3 from sprint?

    Don't know if you have solved your issue.. But what I can tell you by reading your post is ,that you're trying to use an older build. Once you are on MJA 4.3 there is no going back to any previous build. Grab the stock 4.3 flash that and you should be good to go....
