    Flashing firmware with odin = fail

    Guys I need your help. I was trying to root my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (GT-I9195) and odin failed, i unplugged the cellphone and try to power up my mobile phone and I got this message: "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again"

    Well I searched on the net and found out I could flash with odin the firmware of my cellphone to fix the brick and so I did. Downloaded the firmware for my S4 mini (Chile - downloaded the 3 versions of it) and try to flash the three of them but odin always fails.

    Here is the log.

    I really hope you can help me with these. I am begging my data is not lost, I have lots of useful things... Im hoping i wont lose that.

    I cannot do that, I am not able to get into recovery mode (volume up + home button + power).




    EDIT1:
    Problem solved, I flashed the 4.4.2 of my carrier/country and it gave me an error on system.ext4 so I googled it and found out that many mac users had that problem because of using VMWare Fusion (same program I use to run windows) so I try different options and worked out for me running windows on Parallels.

    The problem I have now is that my cellphone is stuck on the SAMSUNG blue-blinking logo.

    Any help now? I do not want to lose my data, that is why I refuse to to the factory reset

    Is there any way to back up the data before doing that?

    You can backup data with the Helium app from the Play Store.

    I could have done that but I had to have the Helium app on my mobile phone and it was unaccesible.
    Never mind, I did the hard-reset and lost my data.

    My advise:
    - If you are a MAC user, do not use VMWare Fusion to run ODIN; use Parallels or a Windows PC instead.
    - Before doing anything, backup your data

    Why?
    No need to root unless planning on using Mobile Odin.
    This would be a good idea for Mac users.
