After about 12 hours of research and no solution here is my question regarding my T999.
For about 2 days I've been unable to flash any roms or recoveries. I currently run CM11 nightlies and was updating fine since the first CM11 nightlies until this problem. I originally thought I had lost root, but that didn't turn out to be the case. I've been unable to boot into recovery and everytime I try to do so I'm taken to what I think is the stock recovery (Android with turning gears on its back) even though I have CWM installed and set up. As a result, CM11 01/01 auto installs and I never see the recovery menu options.
Furthermore, every time I attempt to connect to my PC to flash with ODIN I get an "Samsung Mobile USB MODEM failed" error from Windows 7 (64bit). Here's what I've tried so far,
1- Re-downloaded and installed Samsung drivers (about 3 times). Installed from KIES once and just drivers twice.
2- Tried pushing recovery through ADB but get a "-1" error at the end of the process. (Seems like a permission error)
3- Tried reflashing recovery with ROM and Goo Manager but it takes me back to the aforementioned stock recovery.
4- Tried to flash using Heimdall but also get errors.
At ODIN MODE my T999 reads,
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (1 count)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: None
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 1
BOOTLOADER AP SWREV: 1
I'm aware of these posts, but find my issue to be different since Windows is not installing appropriate drivers.
Any insights would be appreciated,
