Hi guys. I'm trying to help a friend fix his phone. Not sure exactly what he did to get it boot looping so I can not tell you how he did or more importantly what he did exactly. I just know it will boot loop at the first samsung logo, it wont go into recovery but I can get it into download mode. I have all the needed files to fix I think but I am stuck on the driver situation. No matter which driver, computer, USB port, or cable I use I can NOT get the computer to recognize the phone, it always pops up as an unknown device as soon as I plug it in (without battery) but before I can hit Vol down, no matter which combination of cables, computers, usb port, and drivers I can not for the life of me get the computer to recognize the Mesmerize.
Any ideas would be very gratefully accepted at this point, I hope someone can help me figure out what I am doing wrong. This is not the first time I have used Odin,but I can not figure out what I am doing wrong!
I got download mode working, now no matter which pit and tar files I flash, it wont boot past first logo. I even tried Heimdall, any ideas?
