Default Galaxy Victory Struck in ODIN mode

Hi All,

I have a Samsung Galaxy Victory (SPRINT), the device is all the way upgraded to Android 4.1.2 ... Due to some requirement , i tried to downgrade the device to ICS 4.0.4... I used the file "COMBINATION_L300VPALH1_L300SPRALH1_934170_REV00_u ser_low_ship.tar.md5"
to downgrade using ODIN... The ODIN flash went well till the last step and it failed in the last step after flashing the user data. ... The error shown in the screen is INVALID IMG EXT4 file... Currently my mobile is struck in ODIN mode and i am not able to boot.

Can any one please guide me to recover my device. File i used to downgrade are from these 2 links..

[ROOT][ROM][ODIN]Odin One Clicks for the Galaxy Victory

[odin][tar]stock rom repository

Alright, here's the skinny:
Download: TWRP-2.5

Sprint Galaxy Victory JB 4.1.1 Stock

Flash the recovery with Odin using the instructions HERE!!!

Follow them to a T!
At this point the device will still not boot. Expect that. It should boot into recovery however and that's what you want for now.
Next, copy the victory_jb_factoryreset.zip onto an sdcard and extract them. Recovery might not see the sdcard if it's removed and inserted while in recovery so you may have to reboot back into recovery after doing this; or do something much more logical and do it first...Or if you can navigate the file system in Windows File manager do that.

Once in recovery hit "Advanced" then "File Manager". Navigate around to where you just copied the victory system files. Enter the directory containing them and select "Copy" This should copy the contents. Now, navigate to a TWRP/BACKUPS/serialnumber/and paste the contents there. So, you should have TRWP/BACKUPS/serialnumber/backupname/files

If that is confirmed hit the home key and select "Restore" chose internal or external storage; whichever is appropriate. TWRP will find the backup and you will chose it. Swipe to flash. After flashing wipe Dalvik cache and reboot to system. This should all get you back to working.

I can provide 4.0.4 but it may take some time. Also, I had forgotten to subscribe to the thread and it is not automatic; I will get alerts now. I will replay again when I have a solution. In the meantime please provide the device baseband and kernel version.

Ok, so there is confirmation of a firmware mismatch. I am uploading a nice factory file set for 4.0.4 that will flash with Odin. Looks like it's going to take 2-3 more hours to upload but it works completely. This is the link right here

Give it some time to finish and you will be back to 100% stock 4.0.4.

I verified this method works with my device. Install Kies from the Samsung site to make sure you have the right drivers and if you are not using Odin3 get that program from waywardpilgrim.net

The Samsung drivers are there too if you don't want to install the entire Kies program. Usually, these types of problems are caused by outdated drivers and bad USB cables. I can't even tell you how many people come and say "Oh, man, I switched cables and everything worked perfectly"

I have flashed my device nearly 400 times and have not had this many problems. I suppose the USB port on your device may be damaged. I just returned from the doctor with my arm in a splint. I can't do too much else for a few weeks. I am going to try and get you back to 100% then it's break time for me. I'll let you know when there's more files available.

EDIT: flash the linked file and tell me what happens.

Great i will check flashing both the file and let you know ... I am seeing that, when i flash via ODIN , i am getting error in the userdata.img part ... Also , when installing using TWRP i am seeing an common error called unable to mount DATA ...

So , can we prepare a ODIN package without userdata.img part and try flashing . Will it work ? .. Is the userdata.img a mandatory one...

you can try whatever you like, but as you can see many other have succeeded repairing their devices with the things I provide. I have tested all the files, done exactly as I have instructed and back and forth. If there is a problem at this point it's not my files. They work fine. Please read the other threads for more support. As I mentioned earlier, I've done all I can and need to be off the computer for a few weeks.

If you're getting mounting issues, you could possibly have corrupt partitions. Have you tried flashing the appropriate .pit file with your factory tar image?

The .pit file is the partition map that tells Odin how to repartition your device. Someone normally has to extract it from a working stock device. It might be uploaded here or another site by a developer, or it can be done on the spot by someone if it can't be found using Heimdall 1.4. Unfortunately, I don't have this device so I'm unable to do it.

Let me do a quick search to see if I can find one, otherwise we'll have to try to convince someone to extract theirs.

Sounds as if you could have a bad download, I have seen this a few times myself before......... I would check the MD5 SUM of the download just to double check.....

Also this is out on XDA

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1865102

And from what I have read it does work.....

Glad you got it working. I couldn't find a pit file by searching, and I would still recommend that someone extract it from their device and allow a staff member to upload it to a root sticky just in case people need it. I know having one saved my behind at least once in the past.

Is there any way you could get a .md5 or .tar file for that stock ROM? that would be much appreciated! (galaxy victory 4G Virgin Mobile) I cannot tap on the screen in recovery mode nor can i even get to recovery mode anymore. I get this in download mode "Firmware upgrade encountered am issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again" I tried but i do not have a code to use... if you could find a code to use.. that would be great too! Thank you for the feedback... if any haha
