[Q] Soft Bricked?
I tried to follow this guide:
And it didn't work.
When I hit Start on Odin it told me failed and the phone first went into Firmware Update mode.
I tried using KIES to get out of it but KIES freezes up on my computer when i type in SGH-T999 on the recovery portion. It doesn't even let me get to the S/N part.
I tried to flash cwm recovery and it worked and I can get in there, but it won't mount the SD card so I can't flash anything else.
I then tried to flash TWRP and that worked as well. I was able to get in there and tried to flash ANYTHING to just be able to get back into the phone, and it doesn't work (tried this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2426720
I am currently unsure as to how to proceed from here. I can find ways to get stuff onto my sd card but it just doesn't want to run on the phone.
I am currently NOT rooted. I did try to use the option to get rooted through TWRP and it seems to fail every time.
I can access the download mode + recovery mode. Here is what I see on download mode:
PRODUCT NAME: SGH-T999
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: yes (5 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 1
BOOTLOADER AP SWREV: 1
In case anyone needs to know I did have the latest version available to me through T-Mobile which I believe was 4.3.
Can anyone help me out?
