Hi,
Currently there is not much on the phone, at least nothing to start up. I had CM, but had to go back so I tried the guide posted on this forum. With little success. So now im not sure where I stand as the phone is in a state without a ROM. When I try to start up normally i get "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again."

Anyone can help me with installing fresh stock Samsung ROM?

Thanks in advance!

Sincerely,
Tho_kva2

Which was your last stock rom bevor you installed cm?
And which stock rom did you try to flash after cm?
Did they had the same product key?
Was the flashing process successful or did odin say "fail"?
And how is your current knox status? 0x1?

Not sure, but my phone was up to date with the latest update from Samsung.
I first tried to use "Norway (telenor)" first as, and when that failed I tried "Norway 4.4.2" Both found in the second post of the Guide.
Product key?
Odin said Fail. I tried multiple times with different odin versions and with PIT file.
Is it the "Knox warranty void" is so 0x1

And the latest original firmware running on your phone was it a Norway (telenor) firmware?
With product key i meant the csc.
The old firmware and the one you want to flash now have to have the same csc, i guess.
You can also flash a custom recovery and try to wipe and then flash again.

I'm not sure what the original firmware was, but it was the stock firmware i got with the phone when i bought it + updates.
CSC is TEN (Norway)

I do not know how to do a custom recovery, im a total noob on this subject of flashing and modding phones. Got any kind of guide or directrions to point me in? Sorry for not knowing squat, but hope you or someone else here can help me!

Hi,
okay, before you flash a recovery, you can try to flash another firmware but it have to be android 4.4.2 norway TEN

Did you also follow this note here?

"Odin troubleshooting:*If Odin accidentally gives you "fail" try the following:
- Repeat procedure.
- Make sure that all actions of Kies are disabled from task manager.
- Change usb port.
- Try another usb cable (make sure it is the original).
- Try another Odin version.
- Uninstall and re-install driver.
- Use pit file.
- Try another computer."


When odin will continue failing then try this.

This is a 4 part open Europe firmware. Try to flash it...First time without pit,when odin failed try with pit...

If nothing helped, then you can install a custom recovery.
You once installed a recovery, before you flashed CM, remember?
But I will look for a guide and the right files.

It worked with the European version! Cheers mate Oh, it was without the pit.
Atleast android is installed hehe. but keyboard keeps crashing so cant type anything, and I cant turn on wifi; I get "Security notice, your device's security has blocked an action that is not permitted. No further action is required" -Knox Notification Manager.?

Oh and I got no SIM card to try at the phone atm. will get it later


So waht should be the next step?

Did you rooted this firmware already?
Try to fullwipe again. I thought this message only pops up, when the devise is rooted and Knox still not deleted... mysterious

Lol that's crazy. Also tried 4 part with pit?
And when you flash a Norway firmware again? Maybe it will work now, i don't know what's going on there

This is CWM recovery for i9505, you have to flash the .tar file with odin in PDA or AP. It's your choice, whether you install the touch or non touch version.

Edit: anything new?
