[Q] Not sure if this would be considered bricked or not.....
this guy had the same problem i am having now. except he was upgrading from 2.3 to ICS. I was on MJ7 and one of my genius stellar friends told me i could odin back to MI1. well i actually did it, so im obviously just as much of a genius as he is. Nonetheless his description of his problem is identical to mine. that said, the solution offered up for him was obviously applicable to the builds he was working with. With knox being present in the MJ7, i believe i may just be screwed. Im stuck on the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again." screen even after I reboot. it just reboots on its own to that screen after i turn it off. any advise? Id like to get it to a reasonable sellable state if possible so i can put any money i get out of it towards the nexus 5. Ive also tried all the Kies suggested troubleshooting multiple times as he did.
"Now the phone shows an error "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again."
When i connect the phone via the cabe, to the computer, using Kies, it gives me error saying "Device not responding. To resolve the issue, reboot the device."
This is how I tried to resolve the issue, but with no success..
I have rebooted a number of times without success
I clicked on 'Troubleshoot connection error' and reinstalled the driver multiple times, but without any success"
