[Q] SGH-i747m only boots to recovery mode with 16gb sd card
Hello, I purchased a phone off kijiji fully knowing it was not functional - For the 40 dollars my curiosity got the best of me; and if I can fix it well I can get myself a new phone for cheap. I was informed that this phone: Samsung Galaxy sgh-i747m had the latest update (not custom rom). The phone suddenly would not boot past Samsung logo and by the time I bought it, would not boot up at all. So after doing extensive research I decided I would give the 16gb class 10 sd card boot a chance. While somewhat of a success, the only thing it boots me to is this.
BOOT RECOVERY MODE (IN GREEN)
CHECK BOOT PARTITIONS
COPY FROM T-FLASH

FLASH WRITE FAILURE (RED)
ODIN MODE (RED)
PRODUCT NAME: SGH-I747M
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: NONE
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 0
BOOTLOADER AP SWERV: 1
I should note that with the debrick-SGH-I747M-UEMK5 image that I used, the phone will boot to recovery mode without holding any buttons(While Plugged in). It will also boot to recovery if it is unplugged and I simply hold and release the power button when I feel the vibrate. I have also tried volume down + home + power. Same thing. If I take the sd card out I cannot get any sign of life / no recovery mode.
Any ideas as to what needs to be done? At this point I am thinking motherboard failure.
edit* I forgot to mention that the computer does not see the device at all, even in device manager as a random name. There are no signs of life on the computer end. ODIN also does not detect it even when in boot recovery mode.
