    Exclamation [GT-I9502] trashed? 4.3 Odin > Fail

    Hi,

    Being a newbie to this flashing thing. I rooted/SUsered and I had Google Apps running ok on 4.2.2 Android happily on this GT-i9502 from China...

    Then I decided to try and update to 4.3. Dumb.

    It's current state is: If I try to re install 4.3 latest factory stock in Odin 3.07 it fails at SYSTEM bit. then I have to put CWM back onto it to get it to do anything again (It goes into that yellow triangle screen only.)
    I've tried wiping cache etc. But still no joy with Firmware restore from PC - Odin. I'm now in a cycle of Fail firmware restore then CWM to un-Brick it slightly… I can get into CWM but normal start up is just the China UNICOM splash screen then blank…
    Also I might have formatted the data a few times…

    I didn't do a back up of 4.2.2 either, I know I'm an idiot.

    On the downloading screen in ODIN mode it says
    CURRENT BINARY: Custom
    SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
    WARRANTY BIT: 1

    Have I really messed it up?

    Also if I try to install 4.2.2 official stock again it says: Unsupported Version

    What can I try next? Flashtool?

    Thanks

    D

    Yes you have messed it up, but may be recoverable.

    First of all, the China derived firmware, as China blocks the use of Google services - so no Play Store etc,

    Secondly firmware version 4.3 is the start of a change in the EFS folder format.
    The EFS folder (now EFS2 in 4.3) is where your phone data is stored - in particular the IMEI number.
    Without the correct IMEI number on your phone you wil not get a network connection.

    So where do you go from here??

    Well you can't go back to 4.2.2 unless you made a backup of your previous EFS folder.
    Try installing 4.3 again, and if any problems post the Odin log.

    Hi Greenman,
    Thanks for the reply, I see that there's another 4.3 (..MK3) although the link is down at the moment. I'll give that a try.
