MY ACE IS BRICKED FOREVER......!!
I found out what caused this problem..........so the day before i installed this app called "mobile odin" it asked me root permissons so i allowed it..then it said that the app is not compatible with my device and then it asked me to allow it to create a dump file and it said that it could take almost 30 mins to complete and make that app compatible with my device...so i allowed it after 30min it said finished dumping after that i didnt switch off or reboot the phone that day...but i rebooted the phone the other day which caused this problem...i am saying this because some other user bricked his/her phone the same way!






Click thanks if i helped u

flash an original samsung rom with odin and flash also the original recovery then boot from recovery
the original ace recovery can fix boot file errors something CWM recovery cannot do, you will have you ace back in business easily.

my friend bricked his Galaxy 5 when this device wasn't supported after generating Dump file...

actually this app read /dev/stl15 partition data i.e. efs
efs got easily corrupted and device losses its IMEI and result into a bootloop...

only Samsung can change the whole chip to fix this

How u can say that he didn't read anything???
He wanted to make the device supported that's why he generated Dump after waiting for 30min and after his EFS flew away... u say he didn't read anything?

I remember using Mobile ODIN on my Galaxy Note 2 to Update it to Android 4.4 it messed up the EFS

So... my Note 2 lost its ability to Communicate via Celluar Network
