Yeah i did searched and got the terminal commands for i9505 that i have tried. The difference i am seeing in i9505 and i9500 commands is that they have used bs=4096 in the last should i try to use the same in the commands given for i9505.

take it in to a service centre. I don't think there's anything you can do without a backup to work with.

OK, thanks. Service Center wanted 100+ euro to check the phone out. No way am I paying that.

Took it to another place that managed to get the IMEI appearing so the phone is now working but has very poor signal and takes a long time to connect to 3G or 4G.
