Default [Q] Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070 won't boot or go in recovery mode

I recently tried to root the phone using this tutorial on xda-developers http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1660419

However, after completing the procedure as explained the phone did not start automatically in normal mode, I can not even boot into recovery mode.

The OS installed was official Jellybean 4.1.2

This is the first time I am working with a Samsung device and have no idea what is happening.

Ofcourse, it is for 2.3.6. Reinstall JB with Odin. And go to our Original development section, at the top will be Root fot JB thread, use that. Now you returned to GB aith that, but it did not set system like it should, so yoh cant boot and yoh cant go to recovery.

I think those are official from sammobile and samsung-updates. Both hotfile. Look on our generql section, some fw's are reuploaded to other hosts.

Just watch about P and non P versions. You must use the one for your version of phone.

1. What did you do before?
2. If you had JB and you used GB method to root you end up with bootloop.

Flash stock JB 4.1.2 with Odin, and use this to root.

I think I have used the GB methode for the Advance, I have used odin.

If you are on JB and you used GB root method you softbricked. Because GB method uses kernel to inject su file. And you can't boot JB with GB kernel... That is your problem, so now do what I suggested. Flash stock JB firmware over and root with method I gave you.

Is it more clear now what you did? You said that you have rooted succesfull 3 differend phones? And you did not try to read how root is done? And you should know that GB kernel do not work on JB...

And I was thinking what you did before you got problem on Galaxy S Advance, by asking what you did before the problem.

Another important thing: DO NOT FLASH I9070 FIRMWARE ON I9070P PHONE, AND I9070P FIRMWARE ON I9070 PHONE - IT WILL HARDBRICK IT.

I have put the orginal software JB on the divice with odin. Now the phone works on normal and I have rooted the phone on the JB mothode.
I rooted the other diveces when they came out, so there was one way to do it. This was the first time for me that I have to deal with different Android versions.

Thank you!
I used always Cyanogenmod but they don't support the galaxy s advance anymore, do you know a trusted mod (4.4 KITKIT)
