    Hi all

    Massively in need of some help here!

    Just this morning I received a new Galaxy S7 and yesterday i had prepared the files to root it and to remove the bloatware.

    So this morning I used odin to flash CF-Auto Root, it passed but the phone would not get beyond the SAMSUNG start screen despite leaving it for a few minutes.

    So I thought I would get hold of a stock rom to just get it back to default, so again I used odin to try and flash:
    G930FXXS1APG3_G930FDAX1APE1_MAX

    This failed, and now I am stuck on 'An error has occured while updating the device software'.

    I've tried using Smart Switch but it says 'Unsupported device'. If I go to emergency software recovery and device localisation enter the model and serial number it tells me SM-G930F isn't supported?

    I am now completely stuck...and the phone is stuck on this screen, I can't do anything else! PWR+Vol down+home does nothing, nor does Vol Up. I can't even turn the phone off! Am I screwed?

    Please please help!

    many thanks

    SM-G930F Exynos

    Redownload the firmware. Make sure you downloaded the correct one, flash all 3 or 4 files within the zip file (not just AP, but also CSC and others). Try a different computer too.

    After flashing, go to recovery and do a reset and wipe. Then reboot.

    I can't because I can't get off the 'an error has occured while updating the device'?

    That's the known risk of rooting, might be a paper weight now Goodluck

    Could you not power it off, and restart in Odin (download) mode?
