Open the back cover, and you can find a small pin hole, between the camera and the speakers.
Its a very small hole.

This is only if you are experiencing a bootloop. If your phone is not entering download mode or recovery mode and even if a USB is not working.... As I told you the location of the hard reset button, just open the back flap and follow the instruction.

DO AT YOUR OWN RISK!


You will need two people for this.. Keep that pin hole pressed with a pin, then keeping it pressed try to enter the download mode- [Volume down + Home + Power button pursed]. Try it a couple of times and your phone will enter download mode
and then as you enter the download mode, flash to a stock firmware using odin.

Hit the THANKS button if it helped you ! :thumbup::thumbup:

Did you press the pin hole button carefully? Try using a thicker pin so that it is directly pressed.

Though I've never been struck hard, without the download mode, but this works fine on Samsung Galaxy sl i9003.

Well try to enter the download mode while after pressing the pin in the small hole behind.

Btw that button behind will work only if your phone is in soft brick mode. That is it atleast starts/vibrates, screen becomes little light blue when u try to start the phone.

U may need to flash the stock kernel

Try remove ur battery. Push three button to download mode (volume down+home+power). Reinsert battery while holding the button. Wait up to see phone enter download mode. If doesn't, repeat step with battery inserted in your phone. When phone enter the download mode I assume u know what to do next.
