    so i have a sprint galaxy s5. i was using it one day listening to music and on social media then it just shut off. it started to boot up again then it just turned off again and again and again. it was boot looping(correct me if im wrong) so i went to the "bios" of the phone and i wiped it completely. i tryed to boot up again. and nothing worked ! so then i go online, i see that i can download this software called odin to flash my phone. so i flash my phone to the latest OS of sammoble. i boot it up and it worked for a little but then it just randomly shut off and it started with the boot loop..again !! im running out of options here, what can i do ??

    Unfortunately, if flashing the stock firmware (which is what you did with odin) didn't fix the problem, it is most likely a hardware failure and the only thing to do is repair or replace the phone.

    Make sure, though, that you flashed the correct version for your model and carrier.

    It could be anything from bad memory chips to a loose battery connection. If the pattern is as you described it, then I'd have to think it's bad memory.

    You can't replace the memory chips. You have to replace the entire logic board. A quick search, assuming that is what's wrong in the first place, shows the part under $100.00. I would begin to guess how much a shop would charge.
