Unhappy [Q] i9300(international) 4.1.3 upgrade settings issue even after hard reset

Hi All,
1. i9300(unlocked international) got an upgrade 4.1.3 after that my setting link wont work at all,
2. tried a lot of things but nothing worked and had to hard reset
3. After rebooting it opens the welcome page and "unfortunately, settings has stopped"
4. Called Samsung -> they do not support international unlocked phones in the USA
5. Tried odin but it doesn't detect on my computer (yellow/blue tab) although i can go to download screen
6. Tried to install 4.4.2(omni) /4.1.2 -apply update from ext storage but it fails "e signature verification failed"
7. My phone is not rooted, i cannot enable the USB debug option now as phone settings does not work.

How do i proceed ? Tried this link( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2163284) which says "flash ROM" /"flash gapps" but How? AM i missing something, i am not a developer could you please let me know in a layman's terms?

Faulty firmware is your problem with settings ,

The link you post is not for this phone .


USB debugging is not relevant .

Odin no connection see multiple identical posts .
Basics are change cable use USB motherboard port install Kies/ USB drivers .
Try another computer clean usb port .

boot the phone into the recovery mode then choose format the phone ( you will lose every thing on your phone except external storage will be untouched but it's the only way now ) you should back up your files weekly

funny thing there is no 4.1.3 only 4.1.2 / 4.2.2 / 4.3 JB

to install a custom rom u must have a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP or PHILX touch and in order to install a custom recovery you must be rooted

gapps are google apps for any AOSP/AOKP roms only ,, Samsung stock rom doesn't need this

since your warranty has ended long time ago just root the phone already

to install any ROM it's recommended that you have the latest RECOVERY installed
