I tried twrp now with unchecking "auto reboot" and still same problem, I think you meant volume up not down as down will get me into download mode again.
It loads till the android robot recovery logo with the moving hollow cube , it keeps moving for a second or something "loading" and then phone restarts by itself and gets stuck on samsung boot logo again.
She doesn't know which android version she was on, she in not that much into phones so probably with factory rom "4.1.2".
After all these successful flashes, Odin still says:
Custom binary download: No
Current binary: Samsung official
System binary: Official
