E4GT won't boot!!!! I have tried almost everything.....
I am new to posting in this forum. Usually I read a lot in order to find solutions to my problems but this time I am completely STUCK!! It started when I tried to update my firmware usingKies. Well, Kies ended up stuck at 1% and nothing I tried (reinstalling, different usb ports/ cables, etc.) helped. So I ended up with the phone being stuck on a message that said "Firmware upgrade encountered a problem", and to try to recover it with Kies. Tried that.... it too got stuck and wouldn't finish. So at this point I can only get into Odin download mode and a froze boot screen.
So I decided to give Odin a shot and see if I could flash a kernel and rom on the phone. That hasn't worked either. With Odin I tried the one click stock EL29 rom that was on the phone originally. That wouldn't get pass "setup connection" before it got stuck. So I tried the rom that Kies was trying to update to one click F127 and it got stuck at the DATAFS part of it and I was forced to reboot. I then tried the one click f127 (no data) and it passed but still wouldn't boot. I then tried rolling back to one click EL26 and putting CM9 on there. Once again it "passed" in Odin but wouldn't boot. So at this point I am now able to get into download mode and cwm5 recovery mode.
So I try a handful of different kernels and roms using recovery from my external sd instead of using a usb port and cable. All of them flash fine (I can tell when recovery mode changes per flash) but none of them boot up.
So as a last resort I tried Heimdall one click unbrick. It popped up a message that my drivers needed to be installed and would pop up a window in order to do so. I was supposed to pick "Samsung usb composite" out of a list and install from there but there was nothing named that. So that came to a dead end as well.
Sorry for the long description, I just figure the more info you guys have is the better chance of getting the correct solution without all the fluff. Thanks in advance!
