    Hey guys,

    Not really an expert on rooting but I had my device rooted along time ago. Accepted the OTA and my phone went back to stock. Everything was working fine for the past 4 months. All the sudden, my phone turned off just a few moments ago and now it keeps looping on the 4g logo. Can someone help? Thank you in advance.

    Pull the battery, let it sit a minute, then put the battery back in and boot it up. Let me know what happens after that.

    Okay, I'm an *****. I tried to use odin to flash the phone back to stock with the stock tar. What ended up happening is odin failed and now i have an exclamation mark saying firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Help please!

    Not sure what you mean by this? I basically used this method to reflash a stock tar file. Odin 1.85 recognized my phone and I selected the appropriate tar file. I only kept auto-reboot select. After pressing start, It failed immediately. I decided to restart my phone and now I have an exclamation mark in the middle of two computers. with the error message. Help PLEASE!

    I should add, my phone can still be recognized from my computer and I can still get into download mode.

    Hmmm okay, well the next thing I was going to suggest was to boot into stock recovery and wipe the cache, but I'm not sure that will do any good now that you had a failed Odin flash.

    At this point you may just want to run sfhub's Odin one-click package for un-rooted EK02, which you can find here ... [ODIN][STOCK][TAR] SPH-D710.EK02_CL704398 (EK02 Modem/Kernel/ROM - Factory Restore) - xda-developers

    I would probably try the "No Data" version first to try and save your user data. If run into further problems try the full restore version (after trying sfhub's no data issue resolutions).

    Put this in the pit section, then let us know if that works. E4GT PIT Also still put the tar in the pda section.

    Yay, it's actually showing progress! Thanks! I hope all is well at the end. By the way, why didn't the video say anything about "PIT"

    Well the pit file tells the tar where to repartition the phone, so it really only helps if you have a bad odin or odin something wrong. Most of the time using the pit doesn't even help, you got very lucky that bad first odin attempt didn't mess things up worse.

    Thanks DTM,

    Really appreciate all the help. Just wanted to make sure, if I wanted to root and load rom, is it best to do it through Odin or CWM?

    For your initial root, you have to use Odin. Then you'll need to install CWM, either via Odin or sfhub's autoroot tool. Then you can use CWM to flash from there. Odin will always have its uses tho, and I find myself going back to it from time to time when the situation calls for it.

    You will just use this SFhub's EL29 One-Click which is a prepackaged odin, just make sure to select the "preserve user data" version
