Original Sprint ROM Needed - Have to do warranty exchage

Hello to all,

Over the past week I have had a few issues with my phone namely:
  • Rainbow, square oil like pattern in the center of my screen (hardware).
  • Reduced, if non-existent touch functionality (hardware).
  • Phone randomly turning on, switching to landscape (possible ROM issue).
Individually not so bad, but considering I paid some coin and they are happening all at once I am gonna swap it out. I have used a few ROM's on it and I am pretty confident that they are not the main culprit for the screen issue. I read elsewhere that the rainbow issue is an existing problem, although I am not sure why it took over 6 months to show up.

I would appreciate any links to the less-than-spectacular Original Sprint ROM. I would like to do this today if possible. J8 is about to be released!

Hopefully Best Buy won't give me too much of a hassle.

Thank you.

Here is the link to the Sprint ROM.... You will also need to relock it with this afterwards...Relocking it is like flashing a ROM

Installed the 'ship' version. No issues. Definately not the ROM. The screen randomly turns off and on and switches between landscape and portrait.

I thought crap like this happened to ppl that dropped their phone or decided to take it running and to sweat/humidity in it.

Bum deal, glad I kept my receipt in the box.

Thanks, I didn't know I had to re-lock it. Good looking!

EDIT: Wait, is this another ROM? The screen looks like the boot loader/ROM update and it is asking me to go from the Sprint ship ROM 1.03.651.4 to 0.37.stock. That can't be right can it?

Thank you.
