I used Mobile Odin (MobileODINLite-v4.10 and MobileODINLite-v4.10) to flash Stock Rom (I9305XXUEML8_I9305OLBEML6_I9305XXUEMK1_HOME.tar).
After flashing the stock rom I realized I was unable to connect to my PC.
I am on Windows 8.1 and it says that the USB is not recognized or malfunctioned.
I tried various combinations using *#7284# (I see Qualcom Settings with this code - read somewhere that I should see Samsung) and *#0808#, 'uninstalled the Samsung USB Driver, Rebooted, Reinstalled, Rebooted', Uninstall Kies and reinstall, used the toothpick trick and still it does not work. Also tried framaroot.
Under Device Manager in my laptop I can also see an error message 'Unknown USB Device'.
I have also tried to use another laptop on Win7 as well as changing different original cables without success.
Of course I have also done, factory reset, wipe anything that the default recovery allow me to wipe.
The phone is still charging as normal and I do not seem to have problems with calling or messaging and no functions seems to be affected accept that I am unable to access my phone storage from a pc/laptop now.
Seeking the advise of all the gurus here. Can someone advise or point me to any other resource?
