I am new to xda so im not sure if i have posted it at the right place.
anyway, my phone (galaxy pocket GTS5300) is rooted runs on infuzion 2 kernel and has hydroperia v2 custom rom(i followed the instructions from xda)
so recently i wanted to increase its ram so i partioned my external sd and installed swapper 2 (just like the post in xda),everything went all right
then i downloaded "file2sd"" from play store and installed it to gets some space in my phones internal memory but as i opened the app and selected
the format as ext3 the said i have to reboot and i pressed the "" restart now ""button,thats it and the phone just got stuck i waited for some time no buttons responded so removed the battery and tried turning it on but it just shows a blank screen after showing the model no. and i CANT enter recovery mode but i can enter odin (but my laptop does not recognize the device,eventhough i have tried installing all the usb drivers and kies ,i dont know if its because of the data cable or windows8 or my phone ) so i removed my external sd copied all my files and saw (in mini tool partition wizard)that my 2nd partition was full(512 mb)i didnt know what to do and i formatted everything(sd).
i dont know what to do next .someone please help!!!

So you can actually enter the "download" mode. Thats good at least.

Win 8 comatible driver --> Samsung 1.5.27.0

Which version of odin do you use? This will wotk for you --> Odin 3.07

you have to force the installation. Right mouse on device. Install driver. select driver manually. (you have to xtract the driver files from the installer first) show "incompatible" devices --> musg be sth like "USB composite device"

The Best Solution Is :

Press thanks if It helps

Download CWM From here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...0&d=1352197095

Download Stockrom from here : http://www.4shared.com/zip/SZzB-egN/...TULF1_BTU.html

Put both zips in your sd card

go to recovery mode by pressing vol up + home button + power button (Hold for 10 seconds)

Now in recovery mode select apply update from sd card and select cwm file...

Now in cwm mode again go to apply update from sd card ...

Select Stock ROm ZIP...

You will now boot normally
