I've been perusing through many threads on the XDA forum looking for how to solve a download problem on my SGH-i747m but haven't found it. Hopefully, one of you intelligent folks can help me.
Long story short, I screwed up the bootloader a while back which hard bricked the device. I originally recieved the phone in a soft bricked state from a buddy so I don't know many particulars about the Android version before I hard bricked it. I sent the phone for JTAG which allowed the the phone to boot to the Samsung screen. I'm not sure how the JTAG process works, but I assume it cleared everything except the bootloader. All I want to do now is restore the phone back to stock so it's usable.
The following is a summary of what I tried....Using Odin v3.07 and a stock firmware I747MVLUEMK5 I attempted to download the firmware into the device. Unfortunately, in the early stages, I get these errors
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> FAIL! (Auth)
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
On the phone:
Warranty Bit: 1
Bootloader AP SWREV: 2
SW REV CHECK FAIL: Fused 2 > Binary 1
I tried re-rooting the device with CF-Auto-Root and then was able to flash CWM 126.96.36.199 to do a full wipe of everything. On my next attempt, I get the same errors.
