Hello people.
This started couble of weeks ago when my phone suddendly went to factory mode. it wasent rooted and i was running 4.3 so i took it to the repair center. They told me that the phones circuit board needed to be replaced and it would cost 281. Since the same phone new was only 299 i declined their repair. then i went on a search for way to repair the phone my self. I wound some ways but they needed a root acces. So i tried to downgrade my phone back to 4.1.2 but for some reason Odin started to give me this error...

And then when i restarted my phone it keeps giving me yet another error saying that "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in Kies & try again. In kies the phone wont connect to it. it just keeps loading. Now im asking for some help if some1 has an idea or a way to fix this.

I can give more info if needed.

it fails cause you are trying to flash 4.1.2...once you got 4.3 you can't go back...i'm guessing that you get that error when it tries to install the old bootloader(without knox counter)....
