Upon waking up this morning, I found that my phone was stuck on the (very first) Samsung logo. Before going to sleep, I was already booted and everything was stable.
I attempted to enter CWM recovery, but it would not work. It would continue to show the Samsung logo.
Entering download mode, I see the following -
Custom Binary Download: No
Current Binary: Samsung Official
System Status: Custom
This is strange, and pretty wrong. My product name is empty, custom binary download is “No” instead of at least “3″ (I never have used TriangleAway), and I wasn’t using an official Samsung ROM before the problem.The very first thing I tried was flashing the Siyah .tar file. I get this:
“<ID:0/004> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/004> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.”If I attempt to flash a full, multi-part .tar.md5 file in PDA, ODIN v3.04 shows a “There is no PIT partition.” error and fails. Re-partition is not ticked.
Therefore, I’ve tried to flash each of the following, with re-partition ticked:
Each of them fail with a “Re-Partition operation failed.” error.
If I try to flash a .pit file and the full .tar.md5, I get the same “Re-Partition operation failed.” error. The same happens when I try to flash the .pit and Siyah at the same time.
Once a flash fails, I need to turn my phone off and on into download mode again, or else ODIN will stop on “<ID:0/004> SetupConnection..” and not continue for every type of flashing attempt.
The same thing happens for both ODIN v1.85 and v3.04, I’ve taken my battery in and out, I’ve tried this on two different computers, I’ve used every USB port, my Samsung drivers are up to date and Kies it not running in the background.
I’ve searched Google and XDA for hours, and I’m pretty sure the the problem I need to resolve is the “Re-Partition operation failed.” error. However, almost no one on the internet has ever had this error.
The absolute very last abnormal thing I did with my phone was use the app “GetRIL” app as recommended on page 857 of the Siyah thread. The process said it succeeded, but the RIL didn’t match the Baseband in the end. My phone was completely functional after, and I don’t think the app even asked for root privileges at any point, so I’m not sure if it could have been capable of causing an issue this dire.
Is there anything I can do? I just can’t imagine how my phone could have broken itself overnight while charging…
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
