Hi guys i start with say that this forum si fantastic.

At the beginning of jan my S3 mini GT-I8190N , with CM 11 Maclaw, does not turned off it was completely death.
So i send my phone to service center and obviously they told me that it was rooted and i had to pay to fix it. I didn't pay and yesterday the send it to me not fixed.
So i try to turn it on and magicallyi turned on, but a screen on the display said that the encryption was unsuccessful so i decide to flash with odin stock recovery and stock firmware.
But i had a problem while i was flashing stock recovery from TWRP it doesn't complete the operation. So i try anyway to flash stock firmware, but now i can't access to recovery the phone is stuck in bootloop. I can access only to download mode, please guys help me !
