I've searched around and haven't had much luck with some help with my problem. Maybe someone would be nice enough to guide me to the right place?
Basically I had a root gone bad, and I get the:
"Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again."
Honestly I have not tried the kies route yet, had a bad experience in the past.
I either can't get the button timing right, or it just will Not allow me to boot into recovery mode.
I can get into download mode without Any trouble.
I've referred to this thread:
Got the stock rom, but wont flash; keeps getting errors. I assumed I would just need that MD5. Would I need another file since I'm trying to hard reset and flash?
I would have given the "Galaxy S3 Toolkit" a try, but it won't eve get past the debugging part, and I can't change that at this time.
I would greatly appreciate all help.
