Hey guys.
Just trying to get back to stock on a Samsung S7 Edge.
Had no issues with device, with root.
Went to reset as I sold it, and it failed.
Have since done the following.

1. Tried to use odin to reinstall original firmware. Fails with SECURE CHECK FAIL : (PIT) in download mode.
2. Formatted the data partition in TWRP. This worked and allowed me to boot into a reset OS.
3. Tried to wipe system partition in a hope to allow me to modify it. Worked, but now have no OS.
4. Continually tried to use odin to flash without success. Device is detected, but when flashing keep getting the SECURE CHECK FAIL message.

Out of ideas on what to try next.
Any help much appreciated.

Adding a couple of screenshots in case it helps.

Can you get to Download Mode? Why don't you flash everything through ODIN? That'll fix it for sure.

For anyone else with this issue, double check the firmware is correct for the device. I had downloaded the wrong firmware.
All worked fine in parallels with the correct firmware. ;)

When you decompress the firmware you can see two file, CSC and HOME CSC, we usualy flash the HOME CSC.
Try Flashing the CSC, it works to me

Please check the model numbers ..re for Galaxy S7 while SM-G935* models are for Galaxy S7 Edge. You might see a model number like SM-G930F, SM-G930K, SM-G930T, SM-G930A, SM-G935F, SM-G935A, SM-G935T, etc. ..

Just find the newest firmware release and that should work. Also can reboot recovery and select view recovery logs and click /cache/recovery/last_log and roughly 4 clicks down with your volume button, maybe 5 or 6 you should see firmware that's in use.
