Hello , I accidentally made a mistake by naming a rom "Update" and went into recovery mode and updated it . The phone bricked and stuck at the Samsung Logo . I tried Odin . It's connected to Odin but when I press start , it freezes at SetupConnection..
I tries putting the PDA MD5 file into the PDA and everything , I installed KIES for the driver and ended the program in task manager but it still doesn't let me get pass SetupConnection . I really need to fix it before my parents find out . Oh and I can only access download mode .
