Hey y'all,
So I woke up this morning to find my quite new (~11 months) i9305 to be bootlooping.
Getting into download mode works, recovery however does not, since it loops the very first Samsung screen.
Flashing a new rom using Odin (3.04 / 07 / 09) gives me this:

<ID:0/004> boot.img
<ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/004> FAIL!
<ID:0/004>
<ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.

Even re-partitioning fails:

<ID:0/004> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/004> FAIL!
<ID:0/004>
<ID:0/004> Re-Partition operation failed.

To sum it up, it won't flash anything to my mobile, my mobile doesnt output anything in download mode and nothing else works.
Is there anything I forgot trying or is this phone a case for the trash can now?
I'm guessing the nand or worse might be dead.

update odin to v3.09 latest..

before flashing with odin, you need to make sure that the box re-partition is unchecked or else this will mess up your device. only factory reset time and auto reboot should be checked. also usb debugging should be enabled in developer options in your phone.

trying with other usb ports of your pc might also work.

Doesn't work and I can't enable usb debugging or even do a factory reset due to my inability to boot.

I tried flashing multiple things so far, a 4.4 rom, and a 4.1 samsung stock rom with csc & modem.
It doesn't show any knox flag in download mode to me (just Custom Binary Download Count, Current Binary and System Status), so I guess I'm not knoxed?

Of course I had the PIT file, how should I've got that log otherwise if I didn't?

pit are just for re-partitioning the device(they have partition layout in it), you can use odin without pit, i use on my i9300, that looks like a dead nand to me,but for last hope, try without re partitoning(not using pit or not ticking re partition)

Your problem might be elsewhere... You're probably Knoxed. Have you EVER flashed a stock 4.3 ? If so, you flashed the new bootloader (knox included) and you cannot flash roms which include the OLD bootloader.

Go to sammobile, download a 4.3 and retry. Not a 4.1, not a 4.4. A 4.3.
