Hard-bricked Gio NEED HELP ASAP
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.
