DEVICE: 3, BINARY: 2 also with samsung kies and smartswitch i tried using emergency software recovery on both programs and both complete the process but my phone still wont boot pass the samsung logo screen. any suggestions or ideas?

    You are 100% you have the correct firmware? Sounds like the one you are flashing has an older bootloader than your device has. Since you can't downgrade boot loaders it will fail ever time.

    Man that's really odd. Highly highly doubt it, but have you tried booting into safe mode?

    i tried but it wont boot past the samsung logo i tried about everything from youtube to fix it without success. Is it an issue that i have frp lock on?

    It shouldn't be since you flashed stock firmware. Make sure in download mode it shows you being stock and official. Most of the time when the frp lock causes problems is trying to boot a non official binary. It will keep it from booting up. When it does this tho, it has red words in bottom left corner then goes into a bootloop of doing the same thing.

    Give this guide a try. It will work with the S6 I have used it and verified it works. I know smart switch is recommended but kies still works.

    Try flashing a custom kernel. I was reading somewhere on XDA where someone had a similar problem as you and somebody recommended installing a custom kernel to fix the extension format or something like that.
