Hey I've been on the forums all night going through posts trying to figure this out but I'm exhausted so I'm going to ask after hours of trying and not being able to get my phone to load.
So here is what I did.
Phone was acting weird lately, like draining the battery quickly, not being able to turn off. So I tried a factory data reset and that didn't help.
I thought I would try flashing the stock firmware to do a os reinstall. It was my first time and I didn't backup. I don't even know how to do that... I tried to flash the latest firmware VZW_XT926_4.1.2_9.8.1Q_62_VQW_MR-2_VQW_RSD.xml and removed the getvar lines and I have been getting this error. update tz version failed preflash validation failed for tz. I would greatly appreciate if anyone knows if there is a way I can fix this. phone is locked and never been rooted. I liked the software so never cared to mess with it.
The only screens I can get to are fastboot, boot mode selection menu, and recovery.
If you need me to provide anymore info I'll get back with you as soon as I can. Getting ready to go to work now...
Again thank you if you can give me any in site. I'm hoping I didn't permanently break my phone.
