    Default Galaxy stuck in "ODIN MODE"

    Hi all,

    I plugged my phone into my mac yesterday and Kies began to update the new firmware from my rogers LTE Galaxy S2. Kies unexpectedly closed halfway through the download and my phone with to a screen which says "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." I tried this, but without success. I also talked to rogers and Samsung reps whose only solution was the factory reset which also did not work, otherwise, they said my phone was probably toast.

    If anyone has come across this issue and solved it, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hey cpopp,
    so you are still in download mode? Can you boot up normally or into recovery?

    Hey,
    yes, If I'm not mistaken this is the download mode. I cannot get out of this screen though, I can only shut it down by removing the battery and after doing so this screen comes back. Holding down the volume + power buttons are also unsuccessful.

    Try taking out the battery and leaving it out for a bit, maybe then it'll stay off when you put it back in and you can try booting up normally

    Okay, just to be sure, by normally do you mean just power button or by holding both volume and power?

    Just power button. You can also try booting into recovery by holding power, home and volume up

    Unfortunately, taking out the battery doesn't seem to work either

    Hmm, I'd flash the stock firmware then. At least you'd have a working phone

    In download mode, hit volume up. Then connect your phone to your PC and flash a stock firmware (Can be obtained via SamMobile.com, make sure it's your exact model number) using Odin.

    Good question.....Heimdall might work. I don't know much about that program though. Is everything going alright?

    hey,

    I downloaded firmware from an xda forum that is meant for odin not heimdall. Now I am endlessly searching for basic instructions on how to use it. The next video up is meant for unrooting an s3 and I don't know if i should take the risk of screwing this up. If there is anything more that can be passed along that would be great, thanks.
