I was updating my phone with official 4.3 then the odin hanged and stopped working and the phone now when I power it on it gives my this message
"Firmware update encountered an issue , please select recovery mode in Kies and try again"
- Kies doesn't recognize the mobile
- I wasn't rooted
- I have no warranty

PS : I tried and I can boot into download mode
but when I try to flash stock firmware the odin hangs again

I searched and found that I can unbrick it using stock rom with pit file and modem file as separate files .. any one with this rom ??

please tell me what to do ..

Press and hold Vol down + Menu key and power key for 4~8 secs it'd again reboot your phone into download mode, and repeat the full story again.

Put battery out and put back again and you will go at download mode (also I think when you have this message you are at download mode check if you don't see again the download mode if you can see the phone through odin) . Open the task manager at windows and terminate any kies process, download Odin3v1.87 close the Internet connection and flash your firmware with pit file and repartition checked. Odin3v1.87 will do the job, newer odin can't flash at this situation.
