Hello Guys,

I am new to the Android world. I got a s4 mini clone android phone.(Model:GT i9190) few days back. I

rooted with framaroot app successfully. Thats all i probably know about android then so i did not

make any backup,or even know the ram,rom or processor of my phone. I was able to also install the

Rosemary font successfully on my phone. The problem occured when i was trying to change the font to a

bold type of the same font and my phone got stuck in boot loop. It charges, boot to the Samsung logo,

I can enter to the recovery mode, I have wipe cache partition, wipe factory data, reboot and its

still stuck at the samsung logo.

I have also dowwnloaded the Sp flash tool , tried to download a new rom on my phone but all failed,

though i think i have the wrong rom. this are the errors i get while trying to download

BROM ERROR: S_DA_EMMC_FLASH_NOT_FOUND (3144) ,

BROM ERROR:S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) and

BROM ERROR:S_DL_GET_DRAM_SETTING_FAIL (5054) .

I got this errors using different key combinations. As my

PC no longer detects my fone, i use the Meta mode to try to flash or download a new rom. You can the

pictures i have attached. I need help from the members of this great forum. i have read similar

problems and tried them but all to no avail. I must mention that i have tried the methods on win7 and

8 ,on my window 8 i have disable what will not make usb install. cant rember the name at the moment.

I have also used usbdeview to uninstall drivers and install back. Its been five days now. I dont know

if anyone having similar rom can help out. I have tried about 2 roms and both did not work. I have

tried Yuweng and Havunen methods. the flash is not working so am guessing i have a wrong rom. Please

any one that has it can help me with it. Its been five gruesome days for me.


Before it got stuck in bootloop, when the phone is connected to my Pc ,Samsung Kies shows (Serrano3g).

Welda

Don't know about clones or anything but you could try downloading the rom from sammobile.com
And then flash with Odin, go into bootloader mode first
