    Hello, i am attempting to fix my wifes phone. When i hold the volume down, home and power button i get to a download page.

    when i hold volume up, home and power i get to a screen that lets me wipe all data. I have reset to default and cleaned the cache, no change.

    I have also used odin3 to load new firmware i downloaded from samsungmobile


    Even after all this the phone still sits on the samsung logo during boot.

    What else can i try?

    I followed the guide below. i downloaded the most recent firmware for my device. When the program odin is loading and i see a progress bar in odin nothing is happening on the phone.

    Welcome to AF!!
    Are you rooted or stock?
    And maybe I missed it, but what carrier are you with?
