Tried to install a ROM in which it didn't work. I then attempted to recover my backup I had saved so I did that. Once I finished doing that I restored my .efs file and rebooted. Now it's telling me "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". So I went back to Odin, downloaded the stock .md5 file and it fails right when it goes to the recovery step. I'm running out of options and I bought this phone a month ago with no warranty. Is there any chance Samsung could replace the phone?

Model # : SPH-L900. I've also tried different USB slots, a different computer, re downloaded the stock firmware and still giving me a fail right when it goes to recovery

Thanks.

Thank you.I seemed to have gotten it to work with "SPH-L900_MA7_Stock_Restore.tar.md5".
