    Default NOT A GALAXY S2!! There is no section for my Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE but.... HELP!!!!

    I wanted to get 4.3 on my phone because 4.1.2 wont let you use your SD Card for apps. That is all I wanted. Then I used ODIN to get twrp (cannot get cwm to work :/ ) It worked and i installed the ROM... then it happened. It would not boot, it got stuck in a loop. I took out the batter to get it in recovery again. I then put it into recovery again. No the touchscreen will not work. I have tried every version of twrp from 2.5.0.0 to 2.7.0.1 and nothing worked. I tried loading the ROMs with ODIN and they didn't show up because they were .zip files. I re-compressed them to .tar files then tried again. I got an error that said "Unsupport dev_type" So I gave up. Anyone know what to do? A program that can actually reset my phone to its factory default? Otherwise I have a $150 paperweight with no warrenty. Thank you for reading. (btw I went 7 hours straight trying to find a fix but found nothing.) My Mood:

    If you can get into recovery then clear cache and data
    download a stock firmware and flash it with odin, only tick autoreboot and f-reset time
    After that again clear cache and data from recovery .

    As I said before I can get into recovery but I cannot tap on anything because the ROM I installed was not compatable with my phone. So I cannot do anything on there. I already thought of this and tried. If there is a way to load an old version of twrp or some other recovery booter, I would maybe be able to do it. (If it was with the volume buttons.)

    ODIN Tool
    TWRP Recovery

    Launch ODIN through its executable file in the extracted folder.
    Click on PDA button to choose TWRP Recovery from the downloaded location.
    Uncheck the following files

    Auto Reboot
    Re-partition
    5. Power down your Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE.

    6. Now user need to get into Download Mode using Volume Down + Power keys combination.

    7. Press Volume Up key to confirm your action.

    8. Now connect your phone to the Computer/Laptop through USB cable.

    9. Finally click on Start button in ODIN to start flashing the phone with TWRP Recovery.

    You have done everything successfully. Now just reboot your phone and you will get your phone flashed on the boot up.
