I own a Orange Samsung S2 i9100 handset. This was working without problem until now where it was stuck on bootscreen. Recovery mode does not work.

I tried to update firmware using Odin 3.07 however this does not work. It fails to install.

I am now stuck with the message "Firmware upgrade encountered an error". I can get back to the download mode screen but Odin still fails to update.

I can access the SD card via another device so may be able to root via SD card. But unsure if phone has developer mode switched on (as this can no longer be accessed).

Note that phone is recognized when plugged into the PC. Kies installed and closed when using Odin. Kies cannot be used to restore and never used Kies on PC and no previous backups exist.

Any ideas?

Win 8 Machine
i9100

Tried flashing with below:

GT-I9100 Galaxy S II
PDA: I9100XWLSY
CSC: I9100ORALS8
MODEM: I9100BVLS4

GT-I9100 Galaxy S II
PDA: I9100XWLSW
CSC: I9100XEULS5
MODEM: I9100XXMS2

Odin does recognize my phone but each PDA update fails... Kies is installed but not running. Phone still can only go download mode and due to failed Odin update now shows no boot screen (only firmware fail message). I cnanot restore on Kies as did not use this PC before with phone.
