No unfortunately i was not able to fix it.
REASON: Odin no longer recognises the watch.
REASON WHY ODIN NO LONGER RECOGNISES THE WATCH: The software/firmware in the watch
that is used to control communication to the outside world
(i.e. USB via Watch Cradle) is corrupted/stuffed.
i took my watch to an official samsung repair centre, and the technician told me that the only way to flash firmware was by samsungs 'Download' or 'Recovery' options.
These options no longer work because the firmware needed to make these boot menu options work is faulty/overwritten (i.e. corrupted)
It is unfortunate, because i did actually correctly flash the NULL ROM onto the watch properly.
The problem was that the screen did not respond to touch (a common issue people have had)
The answer was to re-flash the NULL os again, and the second time the screen would work fine.
When i went to flash NULL the second time over, i was looking at my PC screen (looking at the instructions) and after about 3-4 seconds my watch immediately selected the wrong menu option (menu selection that i had left the watch on). I think this was the 'recovery' menu option.
This was a mistake on my part in terms of timing, i should have keep pressing the watch button at least once every second (to keep the watch cycling through the menu) until i was ready to choose the correct option (i.e. 'download' option instead of 'recovery' option) - Just very bad timing issue on my part. I have since bought a Gear 2 watch.
Morale: Just remember to be careful about the timing of the watch menu options.
What ever menu option is highlighted WILL be chosen by default after about 3-4 seconds UNLESS you keep pressing the watch button at least once every second.
NOTE 1: It seems that there are no companys/business's in the world that repair/trade samsung watch parts.
NOTE 2: The official Samsung Repair centre told me that sumsung DO have parts for their watches, But that they dont give these parts to repair centres....
NOTE 3: According to 2 other samsung repair centres, a brand new watch motherboard would cost MORE
then the cost of a brand new watch itself.
I hope my tragedy story will be used as a good lesson to those watch flashers out there.
