Download correct stock ROM for your Galaxy Mega

Posted on :

It is difficult to download correct stock ROM for your Samsung Galaxy Mega since it is available in many countries with/without carrier contracts. The Firmware refers to default apps and operating system files that comes pre-installed on your device by the manufacturers. These Operating system and pre-installed apps control the behavior of our smartphone. The internal memory is not read only and you can easily install custom ROM and apps on your device. If you regularly modify your device then stock firmware can be used to restore your device into initial state i.e. just like your device was when you got it in the box (except wear and tear of-course :P :P).

galaxy-mega-back-to-stockThe stock firmware can be installed on your Galaxy Mega using Odin.  will explain you how to install stock firmware onto your device using Odin. But before you think of installing stock firmware onto your device using Odin, you need correct firmwares that are specific to your Galaxy mega variant. Don’t try to install firmware for a different variant onto your device otherwise your device may be hard bricked.

Some example for Samsung Galaxy Mega are :-

  • International version GT-i9200
  • International LTE version GT-i9205
  • AT&T US version (SGH-I527)
  • Sprint US version (SPH-L600)
  • MetroPCS US version (SGH-M819N)
  • U.S. Cellular US version (SCH-R960)
  • Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Virgin – CA version (SGH-I527M)

and lots more.

    Hi Rohan — Can you help me? I have SCH-L600. 2 weeks ago I was forced to do an update and every since phone is stuck in bootloop. I have Odin and the original firmware and have flashed through Odin, but still same thing. The only way I can get into Recovery mode is using Philz Touch or CWM, but I don’t know much about what to do from there. I took Samsung Service Center, but since I replaced my own screen 5 months ago, they say my warranty is voide and will not fix unless I pay $300. I flashed L600VPUBNE4_L600SPTBNE4_L600VPUBNE4_HOME.tar.md5 which Passed in Odin, but then bootloop. Thanks for any help.

      If you have custom recoveries installed on your device then your warranty is void. Anyhow, are you performing wipes before installing the ROM?

      If your Galaxy Mega 6.3 (Sprint) SPH-L600 is stuck at booting
      animation (bootloop) after successful ROM installation then enter “recovery mode” (boot while holding Volume Up + Home + Power buttons together) and perform Wipe data/Factory Reset and Wipe Cache Partition task. Then select “reboot system now”. In recovery mode, use Volume keys to navigate and Power key to select the options.

      Please note that performing wipes will only erase your device internal memory, not external SD card data.
