Ok, thanks to some anonymous friends there is finally an full odin package for the samsung stratosphere (i405)
This is eh2...I have been told the current build running on phones is ei2, so......what does this mean?
It could mean that the stratosphere launched with eh2 and had a quick bug fix ota to ei2, or this was a testing build that was never released :shrugs:
If it was an mr1 ota, then in theory flashing this package, then going into manually push the ota in settings -> about phone should work fine.
having said that, I wouldn't recommend flashing this just for the heck of it...however if you hard brick you may not have another option.
(if anyone knows the answers to the eh2/ei2 situation id appreciate it)
package contains: kernel, stock recovery, bootloader, secondary bootloader, param, cache, dbdata, movinand, cdma radio, and lte radio
flash in odin, or remove the .md5 label from the file and open the package with 7zip and remove the individual components. You can then flash them with heimdall, or remove what files you dont want flashed.
