Default [Q] Flash of a wrong Kernel

HI everyone

I made a mistake yesterday, I flashed a wrong kernel ( the F4ktion dedicated to the CM11 versions while I was 10.2 (I didnt pay attention to the mention JB).

The phone rebooted and stucked on the samsung logo. Then, screen slowly turning gray.

Having access to the download mode, I flashed the bml4 rom stock (probably the main mistake) but this time the phone was stuck on the second samsung logo without turning gray.

Last point, it is impossible for me to get to recovery mode, download fashion meanwhile is still accessible.

Is there a solution?

Thanks

I'd download a stock image of the firmware, install it using Odin and download mode, then flash TWRP recovery, format everything, and install the original firmware again using Odin. That way, you'd make sure your phone is completely clean of errors. Also, is format the micro sd as exFat.

Hope it helps

You didn't need to ODIN the stock ROM back. You could've just reflash the correct kernel and wipe cache/davilk and it should work. What I would recommend you do know is flash a custom recovery and do a complete wipe than ODIN again.

I don't get it, why format the MicroSD card as exFAT? FAT32 works just fine unless you have a 32GB+ card.

Hi
Thank's for your answers.

I'd like to keep the data on my sd card, so I have done the wipe cache and dalvik but still the same problems.

In your opinion, flash the cyanogen rom be able to fix this problem or isnt recommended?
If you have other opinions so I do not reset everything I'm interested. (Flash of good kernel, flash of f4ktion?..)
Otherwise I will resolve to do the full wipe.

You could try getting a stock kernel and flash it using Odin. I'd that doesn't work, i think you should full wipeand reinstall the firmware. I think you could also flash am original firmware image without wiping and that could fix the errors.

If you wiped davilk/cache and still doesn't work, it looks like you have to do a full wipe - no other ways around.

Just to clarify, you want to keep data on the internal storage or SD card? Full wipe does not wipe SD card unless you specifically tells it to.

Internal storage...and flash a cyanogen rom couldnt be a solution?

You still will need to flash a custom recovery first.

Than, if you want, you can install Cyanogen of course, it comes with kernel and all..

Just be sure that you are ready to switch the whole ROM

With a soft brick like stuck at boot animation, generally no. You need to do a clean wipe.
