[Q] Firmware upgrade encountered an issue?
I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy s3 (Pebble Blue).
I downloaded Odin and tried to root it to CF-Root-SGS3, but using this tutorial video: youtube com watch?v=mndQZqom3Ac
Yes, I am a complete noob, therefore it failed. When I tried to turn it back on, it showed me this:
Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.
I did perform a full back up of my phone on Kies before starting, thankfully, but when I tried performing the emergency firmware recovery, it won't show my device in the list of devices requiring emergency recovery. I also don't know what the recovery code would be.
I also tried performing the firmware upgrade and initialization process, but it required my IMEI number, and I don't know how to find that without my phone working properly.
This is the other info my phone is showing:
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (4 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 0
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 1
Please help. Thank you so much in advance!
