Now, whatever the heck i did, i tried a factory reset then tried to flash a stock 4.3 over it just to really clean it up, turns out, it didnt like that. Now kies will not even recognize the device, and when i tried surge's mk2 restore, it fails. I haven't been able to find a 4.4.2 stock to re-odin and try that. I obviously did search and still am searching at this moment but i must be blind or something.
Now i have a phone that says "firmware failed, please connect to kies and run a repair" or whatever. When i try to odin to the mk2, it says "sw rev. check fail : fused 6 binary 5" which i assume has something to do with the build number/bootloader for kitkat thats still on my phone. Am I screwed or is this recoverable? Thanks peoples.
I really need my phone for work. It's used numerous times to make calls because i'm in a service technician position. I can't go without it for even 1 weekday, if i can't get this figured out by sunday at noon, i will have to bite it and get a new phone. Cannot be phoneless on monday. It would literally cause me to lose my job.
