Hello all!

Well, looks like I hard-bricked my phone. It will not boot into download or recovery mode. What do I do?
I tried using quite a couple sd-card guide, but no avil.
I tried http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2345860 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2369125

Also, if it will help, I got a full backup of boot, cache, data, recovery, and system in ".win" files. I cannot load it the "simple" way (through TWRP) since I cannot even get into recovery.

Please help me fix this without using a JTAG service, because there is always the question of wheater I will get my phone back once it is fixed.

Maxwell D.

YAHOO!! I got this problem solved with the help of zachf714, invisiblek and a special thanks to xstefen for providing a working debrick image. Here is the link to the working debrick image that xstefen provided: http://download.xstefen.net/getdownl...backup.bin.zip. all you need to do, is write this image to a micro SD card using linux's
Code:
dd
command or Win32 Disk Imager. Then put the sd card in your phone, boot into download mode and flash a stock ROM using Odin.

Wish anyone else who have this problem luck.

P.S. I am not responsible if anything happens to your phone because of this.

Yes, it was using stock OS version 4.3. Now I already installed a custom OS based on 4.4 Kitkat.

WHY?!
Why am I always so close to a solution on these forums, and then discover the links are dead?!

I am suffering from the 4.3 problem. Can someone please post a working link? I know I'm relying on your good graces, but some of these hosts are rubbish.

Here is a currently working link. My phone is still dead, but maybe it will be useful to someone else.

5.1.1-based CyanogenMod DeBrick Image for SPH-L710
Hello,

I have created a debrick image for 5.1.1-based CyanogenMod. While creating this image, I was using TWRP recovery, CyanogenMod 12.1 NIGHTLY 20150603. I am guessing this should work for most of the future nightlies too.

My complete model number is: SPH-L710

Download:
http: //dl.mdtech.us/Android/debrickForL710Cyanogen12.1.img - direct link no timers, ads, or anything like that.
^-- Please remove the space.
When I will have 10 posts, I will remove the space and make it a link.

(I will add more mirrors in my spare time. This mirror should work for the long foreseeable future.)


Maxwell.
