    I rooted my Samsung Galaxy J500F. Hoping to increase my device storage I worked to do so. I ended up swapping my internal storage files (including my system files) to the Sd Card and then restarted the phone. I know - I know...

    Now the phone will not boot up (not turn on at all) and the phone will not connect to the pc via USB.

    The phone will not boot while holding the power button for 20-30 sec., it will not boot either mode while holding the (vol+/pwr/home) or (vol-/pwr/home).

    The phone will not sync to the computer while in the Device Manager mode on my PC so I am not able to restore the galaxy from a recovery .exe

    How can I fix this problem? I am running the 5.1.1 Lollipop OS
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry it kinda sucks. If you could get as far as the Samsung logo you had a fighting chance

    Yea. I could reset the phone. Would there happen to be a way to restore a brick without usb connection? Meaning, restore via usb though the device doesnt show in the pc device mangar?

    Would you happen to know if a JIB would work for a j500f?

    When you say it won't boot at all, how far does it get in the process? I interpreted your post that it was totally dead.
