Try another rooting method if nothing helps try vroom but I don't recommend it

If your device isn't knoxed you could return it if it's maybe damaged

I have had my I9195 for around 3 weeks now, i managed to root it the other day using Odin v3.04, i also used GT-19195 Rootkit v2. I wouldn't say its impossible, what method did you use first time round?

Whats your download mode looks like is it a knox?

What's your original firmware.

Have you tried wipe data and cache
