Default Can't flash Stock Rom.

Hi,

I have a problem with gt-i8190. It has a gesture lock, which I've forgotten.
So I thought I could wpie data/factory reset, but I cant't enter Recovery Mode.
I tried this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=cwm (the 2mb part)
While flashing with ODIN, it seemed to work. Odin succeeded.
But on S3 Mini Screen I got this error message: "movi-write card_status:2 ...."

After Reboot, nothing changed.
Phone boots up normally. Gesture lock is still there.

Same happens if I flash a whole stock rom via ODIN. I tried this stock ROM: HOME_I8190XXAMG4_I8190OXAAMG4_1332988_REV00_user_l ow_ship.tar.md5
After flash, nothing changed.

Maybe someone is willing to help?

Thanks in advance.

after several attempts of entering the wrong password you should get a google password recovery
if not
then try loading up twrp or cwm using odin and try wiping like that

No luck.
Still getting "card_status:2 (xxx) start (xxxx)"
And the phone is "freezed":
- it boots up, let me whatever I want...
- but NO changes are saved.

I tried to upload lots of ROMs (officials and not) with ODIN, but allways the same: the flash seems to be protected.
I even tried the USB jig, but nothing.

Any idea?

Try the full 2-file firmware together with pit-file and re-partition ticked in odin.
If that won't work I guess your nand is damaged.

Same result. It seems to be write-protected.
The only file it seems to admit (without showing the Red message "card_status:2..." ) is PARAM.LFS .
Any other file it is not written
