Softbricked Galaxy S4
I tried rooting my Samsung Galaxy s4 using odin and it failed and now my phone is stuck. I can only go on download mode. When I press volume down, it would say "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in Kies and try again". I tried to use kies, but it would say the device is not updated and I dont think it recognized my device since it keeps saying connecting. When I use download mode on odin, it would say fail and it would get stuck on the downloading screen. I tried all the solutions available but they don't seem to be working for me. Is there anything I can do? I talked to someone from samsung via online tech support and they said to go to a Best Buy and ask for a software reflash. Is there an alternative besides that?
