Then downgrade back to the old firmware via sam mobile.

Edit:is this your phone that was dead a few weeks ago?

If so I'd consider it damaged. Loading the wrong firmware can have unforeseen and unexpected consequences. You should replace it.

The software was updated on phone previously broken with a bad bootloader, all kinds of issues could pop up. Trying give you real answers, isn't that what you want?

Anyway, yes I'm an idiot but let's not let that stop us. You need to replace your device. You CAN also reinstall previous firmware through Sam Mobile & Odin though with a damaged bootloader you may still run into problems.

Are you saying Samsung replaced the board but didn't put the Android software on the phone?

I would never help you because you simply have no manners. You have never heard of the word "thanks" and you are extremely rude and abusive. Since we all volunteer our time in this community, I feel I may speak for several of us that we avoid all "O'Leary" posts like the plague.
