Before reading further, please know that I have searched over many a forum, so if this has already been covered in a way that I have not tried, I apologize. Thank you for taking the time to read and help. I have to try to get this working if possible as I am remote and not able to travel to get fixed.
I was attempting a factory reset yesterday, when the phone powered off, while I wasn't around. When I returned, it was doing a custom OS download showing the android green guy, with a "do not turn off target" warning. It was then my battery died. I charged the battery and now only get the Samsung logo screen. I can enter download mode (Vol- + Power + Home), but cannot enter recovery mode no matter what combination I do. I am on a Mac computer. Thank you for any help!
I have fixed the phone, but it involved going into Odin flashing the ROM, then going into recovery mode and reseting. Everything works fine...Only odd thing is, not sure where the banners (etc) for the carriers come from, but in Ecuador there is essentially 2 carriers, Claro and Movistar. Our phone number (sim card) is from Claro, but this image is from Movistar. But I think I like this one better! Thanks for the help!
