Hello, I have Galaxy S3 Mini I8190. I have rooted my phone today to Pack-Man 4.4.2. There was no problem while I am using my rooted phone. After all that I decided to unroot my phone and I tried to do that with Odin. I did select Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time and I did install official I8190 4.1.2 firmware. My phone reset himself after installing and stuck on samsung logo. Is there any way I can fix? Thanks.

I tried to look but I only find this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2642274 and it didn't help me. I think because I have installed 4.1.2 version. Kies can't downgrade I think...

After you installed successfully a stock rom then you have to do a factory reset in original Android recovery (factory reset with original Android recovery will delete all your data also on internal storage). Or try to reflash the Firmware

I think my problem is I didn't do any wipes in teamwin recovery. I installed the official firmware with Odin and I got bootloop. I don't know how to fix it. I tried the solution examples in this forum and I still have bootloop. By the way I had Cyanogen Mod 11.0 and I rooted Pack-Man 4.4.2 with Odin without doing any cache wipes etc, and I got bootloop after installing it. I really appreciate helps. Thanks.
