Phone is working fine, but Odin says "There is no PIT partition" when I try to flash.

I have a GT-I9505 with the MDA version firmware, region EVR.

I've flashed it previously, successfully, to the latest ME2 firmware, but then I installed Chainfire3D which soft-bricked it.

I recovered using Kies firmware recovery, did a factory reset/cache wipe, have rooted the phone again... but now Odin won't flash the phone!

It says "There is no PIT partition", and when I try to re-partition using the PIT file from this thread, it just says "complete(write) operation failed".

I've tried Odin 1.8, 3.04, 3.07... all the same.

The phone is currently working fine and is rooted! I just want to flash to a newer firmware, is all.

Any thoughts?

Flash .pit file with the firmware, not alone make sure re-partition is ticked

I was doing both those things. Strangely, it worked when I used another computer! Thanks anyway.

I am having similar problems. Any other suggestions?

I'm trying to root my S4 for the first time. Just had the S4 factory reset itself before starting this attempt.

Seems like the USB connection keeps resetting. I don't have this problem on any other device and I've tried swapping USB cords as well as USB ports. Tried both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. I keep getting the same problems. I've even tried including the PIT file for re-partitioning. Even the Kies connection keeps resetting. Kies trouble shooting the USB connection resulting in reloading some drivers but that didn't have any effect.

ODIN output below:

Now, searching lead me to a thread for I think the S3 and they were saying these kinds of problems were defective motherboards on the phone. Do I need to take my phone back to Verizon for warranty replacement? It's not even a week old yet.

For the record, I just convinced the local VZW store to swap me a NIB S4 as a warranty replacement. The new S4 is giving me the exact same problem so in all likelihood the phone is not my problem.

Going to try removing and reinstalling the drivers on the PC again.

Does USB debugging need to be checked / unchecked for ODIN to work?

NO NEED to check it. a lot of users brick their phones and can not boot to check usb debugging. so they went directly to odin flash and it was good to go

Hi,

USB debugging needs to be ticked.

Hi,

Did you reboot your PC?
