    Force Samsung Emergency Recovering with Samsung Kies

    What is needed: USB Cable for the device, Samsung Kies installed on your PC or Mac, and some patience.

    Get Samsung Kies From here - Kies

    [NOTE]
    This should work for most Samsung devices as long as you can get the device into Download Mode. Before you start you will need 2 crucial things, the serial number and the model number of the device ex.(SM-G920T). These can be found behind the battery on the back of the device or on the box. WRITE THEM DOWN.
    [/NOTE]

    [WARN]DISCLAIMER: THIS WILL WIPE THE DEVICE TO OUT OF THE BOX CONDITION!
    You will lose all your data that was on the device. This process will return the device to out of the box state
    [/WARN]

    [TIP]
    Please be patient on the first boot up as well. It may take a little while to boot so please don't lose hope and pull the battery or power it off
    [/TIP]

    Ready to start? Then lets go.

    Power the device off all the way if you haven't done so yet.
    Open Samsung Kies
    Go to Tools
    Click on Firmware Upgrade and Initialization.

    [NOTE]
    Once you press it, it will tell you that the firmware is now downloading and not to disconnect.Depending on your internet speed and the connection to Samsung's server it could take a while. Keep in mind that it is downloading the entire ROM which is usually over 1GB in size.

    Once the download is completed you will get a popup about the terms and conditions of the upgrade.

    [NOTE]
    Samsung Kies will now start pushing the software to the device. You will see a little blue bar on the device for the progress. Let it do its thing. The device will reboot automatically when it is done.
    [/NOTE]

    Remember this from earlier? Please be patient on the first boot up as well. It may take a little while to boot so please don't lose hope and pull the battery or power it off
    [/TIP]

    Once the device boots up all the way you should now be able once again enjoy your newly recovered / updated device.

    Very well written and presented.

    What is the purpose of this?

    Is it to recover a frozen Samsung. Is it to force update new firmware? Wouldn't it be available anyway.

    What does Force Samsung Emergency Recovering mean?

    I have elected to speak for the more dense amongst us, so I am portraying myself as dense on their behalf.

    Thanks.

    This is for people who are unable to boot into their device . They are stuck at the Samsung screen and unable to go further.

    Not everyone knows how to use ODIN. This is an easy way to get them fixed up.

    If you can get the phone in download mode then you should be able to follow this guy. Put the phone in download mode before you hook it up to the computer and start this process

    It could be that your partitions are messed up. I'll have to search around for a thread that I used when I had a similar issue with an S3. It was an issue with a lot of Version versions of the S3 but you can use it on any S3.

    My phone is working now. I reflashed twrp and it just started working with cm13.

    I'm guessing it was the recovery files?

    The serial number is like 8 digits long. It's not the IMEI. You can usually find it in the box it under there battery depending on there phone.

    I am trying to use the procedure on my Samsung s2 tab T818A.
    i have the S/N form the settings, but I can't see the model name anywhere.
    (It doesn't have a removable battery).
    I tried SM-T818A and SMT818A but Kies does not accept it.
    Any suggestions ?
