I've got a real noob issue with mine.
It came to me with null imei, and using the tools i have i was fairly sure i knew how to fix it and what was required, except the phone wouldnt take any of the box flashes i was trying to flash to it. It wouldnt take the imei_baseband fix at all. It just kept failing.
So, instead of trying 1 file md5 flash i thought i would try a FULL flash. However, apart from the CSC file i didnt know what order the files went in, so, instead of waiting and researching it, i just guessed. As you guessed it, the phone crapped out, and now i get the recovery error and it will only go to download mode.
These are the names of the files i got:
BL_I9305XXUEMKC_2051278_REV00_user_low_ship_tar.md 5 ( <--- i assumed this was boot file and left it alone)
THe other files were a CSC named file which i knew where it want and a pit file, which again i know where that goes, its just them 3 above....where do tehy need to go in Odin??
I'd really apprecaite your guys time on this.
