[Q] Forgot to Turn on USB Debugging, ODIN not working
I was trying to unlock my Samsung Galaxy S3 I-747M (I'm on Bell in Canada). Everywhere I looked on the internet instructed me to downgrade my version to 4.1.1 and then enter the magic numbers to unlock my phone.
So I followed the steps. Downloaded version 4.1.1 of the ROM, ODIN, etc., except a couple of things went wrong:
1) I forgot to turn on USB debugging mode
2) I've now learned that I should not downgrade from 4.3 back to 4.1.1
When I tried to install the ROM via ODIN it didn't work. Based on the other thread, downgrading from 4.3 will hard brick the phone, so I guess I'm lucky it didn't work.
My question is, where do I go from here? I am ready to give up on the unlock process. I just want the phone to work again at this point.
The phone has the following on the screen:
PRODUCT NAME: SGH-1747M
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 0
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 1
There is a warning symbol between an image of the device and a monitor and it states "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again."
I can get to the Downloading mode.
I got these messages in ODIN:
