Fix Soft Brick Galaxy S4 Mini i9195
My device was rooted, but supersu was having huge problems installing the binary, so I decided to go back to stock and try the process again.
I downloaded what was listed as my phone's ROM, and flashed it using Odin 3.09. It turns out it was a mislabelled ROM.
I finally got a hold of the correct ROM for my phone, however it always fails when I flash it, and displays this message:
"Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again."
Problem is I can only seem to get into Odin mode. My screen reads this:
PRODUCT NAME: GTI9195

I've looked around this forum, and others for a solution, but everything I have tried has failed.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate them.
