  1. Android Question

    Thread Starter

    I updated my phone Samsung S4 Mini GT-I9195 today and after the update it's completely locked and any attempt at fixing it has been unsuccessful so far.

    When I restart my phone it gives the message "Unfortunately, the process com.android.systemui has stopped". After I click that away the screen has a message "The device has been updated." and is completely stuck on that.

    I can't connect it to Samsung Kies as it tells me the connected device is locked and I have to enter password on the connected device, but that's impossible because the phone is completely locked. The firmware emergency recovery option is also not available.

    I don't have any access to the files on my phone either. I can open the file directory but it's not showing anything, I need to have the main screen on my phone opened/unlocked for it to do so.

    Other searches on the web have for the most part been unproductive and I'm now at a complete loss for how to fix this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I know it's normally used for rooting the device, but I would look for an unroot process for your specific phone.

    Current progress:

    I have been trying to fix it with Odin but I'm running into problems. Whenever I try to flash it with odin I get the following error in my phone: SW REV CHECK FAIL : FUSED 2 > BINARY 1

    Also in Odin 3.09 at the top it shows my phone model is I9505 while my phone is I9195.
    I have tried it with both Odin 1.85 and 3.09, in both it gives the following:

    <ID:0/006> FAIL! (Auth)

    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    The firmware I downloaded and tried it with was 4.2.2
    I am now in the process of downloading 4.4.2 firmware as the firmware being too old seems to be the cause of the "REV CHECK FAIL : FUSED 2 > BINARY 1" error as apparently it can't downgrade.

    Doing it with 4.4.2 fixed it. Had some other problems along the way but they are all easily fixed with google searches.
