When you say bricked what do you mean? You can get in recovery? Download mode? What were you doing at the time?

basically i had just managed to root it and discovered the new mobile odin, however i wasnt sure if i installed the latest rom software or not so I tried once again to reinstall it and it said not enough memory.

when it rebooted by mistake i pressed factory reset and from there i can only access download mode nothing else.

when i connected iit kies its saying this device cannot be upgraded!!

but he can get into download mode, he only needs to change the board if his phone literally becomes a paperweight haha
posting this so the poor fella doesn't freak out
