was updating my galaxy gear to mk7 using odin 3.09, once it finished and rebooted, now it's stuck in a reboot loop, and is stuck at the samsung screen(the one right after the samsung logo screen).

i can get into the option to select download or recovery mode, but when i try launching them it just reboots back into the reboot loop.

tried everything thing i found from google and from xda, still can't get past the reboot loop.

any helps would be great, im at my wits end.

I had to do only one thing slightly different that I'll elaborate below. So when you're soft-bricked at the SAMSUNG logo, do as follows: -
- Long press power button until you see "Rebooting"
- ASA you see that, release the power button momentarily, and now start pressing it and releasing it repeatedly for about 10 times until...
- you see the screen that has the choices to Continue, Download & Recover
- Press the power button to cycle through these choices until Recover is selected

Here's the tricky part now that worked for me after a few tries
- To select Recover now, you'll need to long press power button for about 4 seconds... any less and the selection will cycle to Continue, any more and the Gear will reboot
- If you've pressed it for the right duration, you'll see the green droid man with a message 'installing configurations' or something like that (and the Gear will probably reboot before or after that... forgot that now!)
- Then you'll see the now dreaded SAMSUNG logo again... but if you're holding the Gear in your hands, you'll feel a slight vibration... I KNEW something was going to be different when I felt that and sure enough, the Gear turned on showing the short-cuts to the videos to download the Gear Manager
- The rest should be straightforward.

I can empathize how anyone might be feeling since I went through that sickening feeling for a few hours before hitting jackpot, so if the above doesn't work or if you need any more details, just let me know.

Good luck!
