Hastily spouted for your befuddlement
So far every time I've said flash, I've meant through Odin since I'm not able to boot into recovery I can't flash from it.

I successfully got the files to download using Odin and it says successful ,I got the green Passed, but it acts like the bootloader is not working.

Please help!!.
I just want to get it working again. Since I can still use Odin, is there a stock file that will clean and get the bootloader working again ?

Okay,I got it back. Yeah I'm a noobie

I Odin back the original file androidfilehost.com/?fid=23329332407577200 which is the 4.3 ver. and it's back to unrooted stock I guess. This looks like the same file you tried but try it. Who knows,it might work for you also.

Just a note for some who may not know this. Odin doesn't like it when you have Windows Explorer open when you are trying to load the .tar file.


I have since rerooted with success. I think I'll just play around with GravityBox and Xposed for awhile.

I have already tried this file and it did go through as Pass in Odin, but the phone never properly booted.

I tried to contact mobiletechvideos but they aren't returning my calls or responding to my emails.....please help!!
I'm not really sure what to do at this point so if anyone knows how to fix my problem let me know.....or if anyone knows a different service that I can contact let me know as well.
