MG5 to ND4 Update
« on: June 01, 2014, 05:55:28 PM »
I have a rooted Virgin Mobile SPH-L300 with TWRP Recovery. Samsung has been sending me an update but it fails to install. Should I do anything about it, like trying to install it from recovery. When I let the phone try to install it, I end up in Recovery and when I check the log file I see it failed. The first error is "Cannot find file /nobrightness".
The file it is trying to use for update is USER_L300_SPT_MG5_to_ND4_Update_FWD-1.zip

Does anyone know what is in the update? Should I care?

Hey fwuts, after it failed to install- does it keep popping up the update reminder?

It will only install correctly with stock recovery, stock system, stock everything. So root, custom recovery, any system mods or missing system apps will cause failure.

Last week it also tried to update. I clicked install, and it reported it was up to date, but it tried again this week.

Make sure ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is removed from the system, that includes apps. Also you are gonna want to make sure you are on the stock kernel and stock recovery. Make sure your build.prop is also not modified (ie change phone name, version. etc). Root does not matter. I kept root after the update. You wanna pretend like u just bought the phone. I am in the process of making a working no-props update.zip for use with TWRP. Hope this helps and post any other problems that u encounter :)

Is there any way of knowing whether my phone has MG5 or Nd4? I need to know before I flash victorious because it says phoen must have ND4.

Are you running stock Right now? If you are it should say at the end of your build number.
