Accidentally flashed GT-I9100_OLD_BOOTLOADER.tar kernal on SPH-D710 using Odin. Was trying to get rid of Yellow triangle, which worked. Now phone will not connect to Odin.
Cables are fine. Drivers are fine. Phone connects to PC and can explore the internal and external storage.
Phone is rooted and is not bricked. Phone only has stock recovery, so not sure if rom or kernals can be flashed that way.

Help!!

Can Stock Recovery "apply update from sdcard" be used to flash correct kernal, unroot to stock using HOME_SPH-D710_CL852097_user.tar.md5, or re-root using SPH-D710.EL29_CL852097_ROOTED-OneClick.exe can be flashed?

If not, how else can this be fixed?

You're at risk for a brick.....you can try to use mobile Odin to install one of sfhubs one click installs to your phone.

Are you putting your phone in download mode prior to using Odin?
And Dante is right. use sfhubs ff18 one click.

Thanks Dante!

Mobile Odin makes sense in this situation. I searched the market and find ChainFire's [root] Mobile ODIN Pro. Is this the only one/the one you recommend?

Yes, I am putting the phone into download mode prior to connecting to PC. I don't have any problem with this my other phone, so I know it's not my method or cables.

I have SFHUB's oneclick downloaded, hopefully I can flash it with Mobile ODIN.

Thanks.

Do recommend
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...highlight=root
or another sfhub file from
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=869
The instructions in the first link mention using ZArchiver to unpack the .tar file. Should this be done, or can Mobile Odin do it?
It looks like Mobile Odin can do it under the "Open fie" option.

Your phone won't connect to.Odin cuz you flashed a bootloader for the wrong device(international gs2). I don't even know if flashing a bootloader thru mobile Odin is even possible. You may need to send it to have it jtag'd to fix this oopsie and hopefully you learned a valuable lesson, which is read, read again get ready to proceed read once more and then read it again, then read it while you're doing whatever it is you're doing. With so many variants of the gs2 floating around reading is your best defense against fubars like these
ETA: no mobile Odin won't flash a bootloader, so Jtag will be your only option and it runs ~$50. Check out mobiletechvideos for jtag service

Thanks for your reply. I agree and understand about reading and being careful. I try to do this, but unfortunately find it very hard to locate the correct information.

Can you give me a little clearer explanation of what "send it to have it jtag'd" means, and how to do it?

I take it, that a One Click from sfhub won't include a bootloader.?

Sorry, missed the second half about the jtag.
