Alright, well it all started with my SD card. I thought I'd fix it by putting a rom on my internal SD and flash it.

But without even thinking it was on my internal SD I used the Mega wipe script... Now my phone is empty and Odin won't flash stock rom.



I'm freaking out.

I presume you have a custom recovery installed seeing has you where originally going to flash from internal memory? If you can still boot into recovery have you tried to place a rom on eternal sd card and flash from there..Is there a problem with sd card if so what?

I can think of 3 options:
1) Try to flash again using Odin 3.09- you're using a very old version...
2) If you don't have access to recovery- try to flash Philz with odin
3) Try to find 4-parts rom installation (seperated PDA,Modem,CSC,PIT)- i've never checked, so continue with caution.
Perhaps this might help: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2187081

Can't you put file on SD card after removing it and then put the ROM file on SD card by SD card reader and then flag through extsdcard..if not then check if proper drivers are installed.. And also try to change USB cable if that works

I was told that using older versions of Odin sometimes work better then the latest versions. Anyway I'd like to thank you all for the informative replies. I managed to fix it by going into CWM recovery and choose "reboot to bootloader" from the advanced menu.

It seemed to have triggered a download mode which allowed me to flash.


And no, my SD wasn't recognized by anything. Not on PC nor recovery.

I was getting the same error using the USB ports on the side of my PC. Make sure your using ports on the motherboard itself.
