    when I hit the start button the progress stops at “initialization” step no more actions happen

  2. Ales says

    my phone had been unplugged during upgrading now it doesn’t work at all even recovery mode doesn’t work

    • veritovdr says

      you should never unplugg a phone when you are flashing a Rom! why did you do that !? If it doesnt enter in recovery mode is broken

    • Shnookie says

      Just buy a Samsung download jig (or make one yourself), take out the battery, plug in the jig, replace the battery and turn on the phone to get to download mode again.
      Using Odin update the software as usually and all will be right again.

  28. ajay says

    I tried updating my phone via odin, Odin said PASS but my phone didnt start, it was not even entering download mode. nothing happens when pressing vol+home+power. I had to take it to samsung service center. They said the warranty is void due to rooting and the motherboard needs to be replaced. The estimate of repairs is Rs 5500

      Bro you have to download ODin on your PC not on your device. On device just you have to press “Volume Down + Home button + Power Button” for few seconds and you will enter into download mode. That’s it, flashed the file via ODin and you’re done :)
