Default [Q] Galaxy Y in another boot loop!

Hi guys, please help if you can before I pull all of my hair out. My wifeís Galaxy Y is in a boot loop & Iíve spent most of the weekend trying to fix it without success. I'm a newbie here but have searched your forums before & found them very helpful but can't find a solution to my missing drivers problem.

So far Iíve followed the instructions in post 6 in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=33706714 but ODINís ID:COM field never changes colour (version 1.85). Iím guessing this is because every time I connect the phone to my PC Iím getting a message stating that the CDC drivers ACM & OBEX canít be found despite having installed KIES from the link supplied.

It's a standard phone, never been flashed before it that's any help.

So, you've never rooted it? What changes did you do last before it ran into a bootloop? My galaxy y, after receiving an update took 45 mins to boot up.
Devices -
Nexus 7 2012 16GB Rooted, CM11 on motley Kernel with MultiROM running Paranoid Android, Stock Kitkat - KOT49H and Stock Jellybean - 4.2.2 as secondary Roms
HTC Wildfire Buzz A3333 - Rooted, S-OFF Revolutionary, CM9. Trying to cook my own CM9.
Galaxy Y - Rooted, Stock ROM

Yeah. XDA censors my name. -_-
HIT THANKS IF I HELPED!
Cheers!

you dont need kies its pretty much usless for galaxy y


You need to install the samsung usb drivers
see my firmware thread for full instructions on how to use odin and link to the usb driver

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2568853



Also you can just try wiping data in cwm - you will loose all data but the phone should start normally else you will have to flash stock rom via odin

Wow guys, that was fast! Thanks for your help, my wife doesn't remember changing or d/ling anything recently me0211.

I have already d/l the drivers from your link, Marcus. However, my PC wasn't picking up the CDC drivers even if I manually point the setup to the folder where I d/l the drivers. However, I've just renamed the folder it d/l the drivers to & redownloaded them again. Sure enough, connected the the phone to the PC & the drivers were successfully installed! Opened ODIN, the ID:COM field turned yellow, & everything worked perfectly from there!

Thanks so much Marcus, I've earned maximum brownie points with the wife & I'm now considering a Rooney weave for the hair I've lost.

She's lost all her texts but that's probably a blessing, she does like to to text.
