    I am afraid if you tried what i sent to you and you not having the firmware you are out of luck . Try to do a hard reset on the phone .

    I've honestly never seen this.
    If Odin doesn't see your device then Idk if there is a fix. Just send it back to tmobile

    Next to you
    Just be aware, as you may know, rooting voids your warranty.

    And depending how far the root process got before something went awry, T-mobile may know its been tampered with. :eek:
