Hi, I have a rooted galaxy s4 LTE with android 4.3, and was going to update to 4.4.2 via odin 3.09, but during the middle of the installation, I heard a usb disconnection sound, and a red light saying fail appeared on odin. I waited a while, but nothing, and when I restarted my phone, I got that message "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in kies and try again" with some odin console messages on top.

I don't know why I can't recover with kies, nothing shows up on the list, and I tried to flash again with odin, using the same rom, but it failed.

what should I do?

I downloaded the official rom from sammobile.

thanks in advance

i had the same problem before! it was the usb ports in my pc ! i changed pc, i used my laptopt and everything were ok! just test another usb port or another pc using odin and original rom and everything should be ok! Dont panic ur phone is ok

remember always to run odin as administrator

hey! yeah, apparently it was those front usb ports, both of them weren't working properly, when I connected to another usb behind the computer it worked fine installing the same rom through odin.

phew!

thanks
