BOOT RECOVERY MODE
CHECK BOOT PARTITIONS.
COPY FROM T-FLASH.
WRITE 159488 sectors..
FLASH WRITE FAILURE
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 1
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 2
Odin gave me this:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> L710VPUCND8_L710SPRCND8_L710VPUCND8_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4)..
<ID:0/004> File analysis..
<ID:0/004> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/004> There is no PIT partition.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
After that, this came up on the phone's screen after the other text:
ODIN : flash read failure
Does this mean the internal memory is fried? Because that's what it sounds like to me but I'm far from an expert. Any more ideas?
I'm no expert in this area, but I think you're OK. Check the following; make sure your USB cable is working properly, make sure you have USB Debugging Mode checked in Settings, make sure you have a compatible version of Odin - I use v3.07, and make sure Re-Partition is not ticked, make sure your tar file is placed in the PDA slot, and lastly, make sure your tar file is not a corrupt download. I hope that helps..
Edit: Since you're able to enter Odin Mode, you should be able to enter Recovery Mode as well. You can also try restoring a backup, if you did so before all your troubles started..
