I've got an issue with my GT-I9301I
4.4.2, baseband I9301IXXUAOD2, build KOT49H.I9301IXCUAOJ1.
Got this phone a few weeks ago and updated it via OTA to the above mentioned version.
Now I'm thinking of rooting it and putting CWM on it, but I didn't succeed.
My problem is, that ODIN is not recognizing the phone, when it is in download mode.
There are hundreds of suggested solutions in the net, I've tried with different PC, with
different USB cables, with different USB ports, with different versions of ODIN and with
removing the battery in download mode. All to no avail!
Note: ODIN is recognizing it, when the phone has booted android regularly.
I am starting to think that somehow Samsung has locked this feature with their latest firmware release.
Going into download mode looks different on my phone compared with the described procedure
of having to press "Volume up" in order to continue to the menu after starting phone in download mode.
My phone directly goes to the menu without message.
Can anybody confirm that or is there anybody out there, having solved this issue?
Thanks and best regards!
This is really ridiculous, I always pressed the volume up button instead of volume down when booting.
Now it works.
