I was using Liquid Smooth (I think 4.3) and one night my battery died. Ever since then when I try to boot up it hangs at the liqiuid smooth boot screen. I was unable to get into recovery or download mode because my volume up button is broken. I bought a usb jig that has my phone forced into download mode now,and I have odin installed but im not sure what to do. Do I just flash a 4.3 stock rom? Where do i find the correct stock rom to flash? I don't want to pick the wrong one and hardbrick it. Thanks.

Well I'll just tell you quick don't Odin 4.3. I don't have a link for 4.1.2 but I'm sure someone does.

4.3 Odin file will lock your bootloader forever.

So I need to use a 4.1.2 stock rom even if i had 4.3 before? I can't seem to find the right 4.1.2 file anywhere. Thanks for warning me too.

He can't get into recovery from a power off state. He will need to reboot onto a touch recovery from the ROM because his volume rocker is not working.
