Hey s3forums. I registered to this site in hopes that you pros can help out an ignorant sg3 owner. Got the phone a week ago and after some thought decided to try and root it. I followed a couple of quick reads and video checks and took my try. After failed attempts on Odin after opening PDA CF-Root I decided to just give up and keep my phone stock until a friend could successfully do the job for me. While powering down sg3 to get out of Download state, I got a vibration and this: "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." GUYS I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE if you can get me links, helpful tips, guides, whatever possible to get me out of this situation. On the top left of the screen reads:
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (2 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: Enable
THANKS AGAIN in advance to those nice enough to give me their time and effort in helping my poor and sad root attempt.
