    I tried odin and kies, cant seem to move from this screen.

    What you device requires is reloading the ROM, Go to the Sam mobile firmware section and download the appropriate stock ROM according to the region and once the ROM download completes use the Odin to flash that ROM again to your device, you device will get back working like a new one does. !! Well, let me know if that work out for you ...

    I tried 2 different versions of 4.0.4, the 2nd and the 3rd one (the very oldest date link does not seem to work, file not found). Both of them fail, any other suggestions?

    Belated welcome to the forums!

    You could start by trying the correct firmware. If I read your somewhat blurry camera picture correctly you have the SGH-t999 - this http://samsung-updates.com/details/2...99UVUENC2.html is the correct firmware to flash. NOTE: IF YOU HAVE THE SGH-T999L, DO NOT FLASH THIS FIRMWARE - GET THE CORRECT ONE FOR YOUR MODEL!

    Be advised that since your phone had the 4.3 firmware already on it (as evidenced by the line that says 'Warranty Bit' in your picture) you cannot go back to older firmware - that's the reason you're seeing the failure pictured.

    What does it show when you boot into Download mode? Can you just transcribe it rather than a picture - it should be something like this:
    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SGH-t999
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
    CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
    SYSTEM STATUS: Official
    Warranty Bit: 0
    QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE

    When you ran Odin, did it say that it completed successfully? Can you post the log?

    Have you tried booting into Recovery mode and clearing the system cache and performing a Factory Reset?

    its says all that but a little different:
    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SGH-t999
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (6 Counts)
    CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
    SYSTEM STATUS: Official
    Warranty Bit: 0
    QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
    Bootloader RP SWREV: 1

    when i ran odin it said RESET when done, then it reset the phone then said PASS. Ill see if i can figure out how to post a log.

    once the phone restarted it was stuck on the SAMSUNG screen dimming in and out and just stays there.

    I did not try recovery mode, however i believe thats how i got stuck there in the first place. I will try it though.

    Strange - I thought that if you flashed the stock firmware this would be reset to No (unfortunately I only know enough to be dangerous).

    I'd suggest booting into Recovery mode and clearing the system cache, then performing a Factory Reset and if you still have boot problems then try flashing the same firmware yet again.

    As long as the Odin log showed success then it should be okay - it's just nice to see for confirmation.
