    Yesterday, I attempted to root my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, I set everything up properly through Odin and began the rooting process, the root failed, which I didn't think was too big of a deal at the time, but now the phone wouldn't respond to any inputs(power, home, power+home+volume+/-) I waited around an hour but nothing happened and the phone still wouldn't respond, so, I unplugged the battery which is where my mistake starts. After that, the phone would only boot into Odin mode and wouldn't start regularly. I followed a few guides and attempted to 'flash rom' my device. The phone now boots to a screen that states, 'Set warranty bit: recovery' on a screen with the Samsung splash; however, the phone does not go further than that and turns off a few moments later. Is there anything I can do or am I sol?

    Not sure what you mean by variant, but I attempted a root through Odin v3.09, and recovery mode does not work, and odin mode can be accessed.
    Edit: Phone is registered by PC when odin mode is active. Phone is registered as MSM8960(which is a modem and is weird, but whatever)

    @edodson84 No, unfortunately I don't. It is very popular in the forums as far as issues. I have an S4 and am quite familiar with Samsung devices. I also have a LG VS450pp. I have seen you over at Tracphone Devs. It is good to see you out here helping out!

    I'm not sure myself. I have three different versions of Odin installed. If one doesn't work I switch to another.
