        Hey again,
        my problem:

        i tried to update the firmware of my phone trough the phone. but i think that my battery was empty and so, while it was updating , my phone turned off. And after that it was not possible to start the phone(just samsung logo) , not even the recovery mode was possible. Only the Download-mode.
        (So it is not possible to do a Factory Reset)

        After all, i tried to flash the phone, i followed all steps, but it always stucks at a certain point.
        I tried Odin 1.85 and 3.04, i tried one package firmwares and multi package firmwares. I closed kies in the background. Nothing happens, always the same.
        I tried all this on an other PC (not any kies drivers installed) , but again the same ! the phone can not flash.

        Any idea what i can do ? please help it is important…

        p.s.: After the first trying of flashing the phone, it failed. so i unpluged the cable and closed Odin. after this process, when i tried to start the phone, the samsung logo did not appear and it said : Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

        HELP PLEASE 🙁
