Default Firmware upgrade encountered an issue on GALAXY GEAR

My galaxy gear is showing the "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again" screen. Is there anyway to recover from this? Neither Kies 3 nor Kies 2.6 is recognizing my device

About which Gear are you talking:

Gear 1, Gear 2 or Gear 2 Neo ?

Gear 1 . . . just downloaded an older firmware 4.2.2 and it installed using Odin 3 v185 so all good now

This didn't work for me. I used Odin3.07 and 4.2.2 stock ROM to flash first - I used PHONE option because the others didn't work (no progress in the message window). This 'faulty' flash came up with a 'UI stopped working error' when the Gear rebooted but I was able to get it into download mode now. I then used Odin 3.09 and the flashed the 4.2.2 as a PIT which worked fine!

Got there after reading through a lot of XDA threads and trying many things. But in the end, the answers were here. Thanks.

PS how I got into the mess (the firmware error message with the yellow triangle)? I was on null 23 and wanted to go back to stock rom so that I could sell the Gear. Couldn't get into download mode for Odin 3.09; I can't exactly remember what I did but I disconnected the gear midway through a seemingly failed flash and it got me to the error. Googling says use Kies but nope, it wouldn't recognise the gear even for the 'emergency firmware'. I tried a lot of things, and wasted a lot of time!

Worked perfectly, THANK YOU! After a few failed attempts at flashing my Gear I thought it was doomed, luckily after flashing the stock ROM back to it as you described I was successful at flashing the Tizen ROM. Thanks for your help!!

I'm also having this issue.

can you share how to get odin recognise the gear, because now it's only showing yellow triangle with error text, and i cannot perform the step to go to download or recovery mode.

when i do long press on the gear it's only go black screen for awhile then back to error with yellow triangle.

thank you for the reply.


Update:
Already found solution, i just flash Null TWRP form odin and my gear return back to android, after that go to download mode, then flash to tizen.

How did you run it as a PIT? I've been trying for a day now and can't get it to work.
