    Hi. I sold this phone last week, fully working. It has been returned bricked. It will not factory reset. Having read many threads here and elsewhere I tried KIES, then ODIN with what I thought was the right firmware tar.MD5 file.
    It's a G900F, originally on Vodafone, but unlocked using the key they provided and used before being sold.
    Odin (administrator mode, various versions) repeatedly fails (re-partition OFF) with "there is no pit binary". To me that suggests it needs rebuilding from first principles, rather than a relatively 'normal' firmware update, but I haven't found any way to do this. Yet. Can I, for example, build an SD card to do some sort of autorun fixes? Where would I get the .img file?

    Is there any hope for this device or is it just a collection of parts?
