I was attempting to install yajnab's Android 4.4 ROM for Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582642) when I encountered a Status 7 error. In a state of panic, I shut down the device to look for a fixed version of the ROM (also found on the yajnab thread). When I came back to the device, It was only displaying the Samsung logo (before the Samsung Galaxy Gio logo shows up). I left it at that for the night. When I came back today, the following findings were discovered:

1. It was in a state of black screen boot loop.
2. I can't enter recovery mode
2. I can enter download mode, but Windows doesn't recognize the drivers I installed. So the device reverts to its black screen boot loop.
3. Odin can't recognize the device since Windows can't discover the device's drivers in the first place.

I need help on this one very badly. Please be noted also that I can't afford a JIG (or whatever that was) and I can't send this to Samsung repair centers because the warranty on this thing is apparently gone 2 years ago.

Try this:
Remove Battery, remove SD card

Attach your phone to PC via USB cable, without battery inserted
Open ODIN and now the work begins.

Hold the respective keys to get into Download Mode. Then while holding them insert battery.

It'll get recognized on ODIN.. Mine did.

You should unistall all mobile driver and adb

Unistall from program unistaller, and periphical panel. Then run USB de view to clean left USB driver. Right click unistall.

Then install proper Samsung USB driver and you should be able to flash through fastboot

Good luck

Problem Solved! But what's the best ROM?
I got the problem solved (After a week, sheesh) and Its running fine now. But the problem is, What's the best-est ROM that I can use? My sister hates CM10.1 with KitKat Skin, Yajnab's KitKat ROM was the root of the issue, and Maclaw's 4.2.2 apparently was "slow", according to her. She also doesn't like Jellybread as it was "hard to use"

Pretty picky sister, right?

You can use this CM7.2 based ROM.. I'm testing it on my GIO and it's really fast.. I have no idea about battery durability, but I can tell you tommorow..
