    You should try no.3 for the factory reset or download Odin and use this thread to get your stock firmware [ACS][Odin]Completely Stock EG30 - Restore your system - xda-developers . To get into download mode for Odin press and hold the Power button and Volume down button while starting up your phone.

    It would seem easiest just to do the factory reset from your Recovery <e3> menu, but using Odin will open up doors to rooting which in turn will give you a better Recovery menu with CWM that allows you to make a complete system backup and have it stored on your phone. This will remove the need to be near a computer should you ever have to wipe and restore the phone.

Prior it was beyoned stuck all I had was blue letters and any menu option i hit all I saw was android logo with a ! mark , but now i got my orange menu back , but i still need the os to follow the sprint theme start up logo and ill take it stock and worry about rooting at a later point . I read your thread sounds good but has any of your advice changed now that ive got this far?

    Just be careful over on the XDA Developers Forum. They are not real tolerant of questions from non-developers and get really nasty, *really* quick, so if you have any questions, ask them over here on this forum and Ollie or one of the other R/S guys will help you out in a pleasant way. Better than having your head ripped off over there.

    My advice remains the same. You can also do an emergency firmware recovery in Samsung Kies on your computer. It is under Tools, Emergency Firmware Recovery.

    It sounds like u are stuck recovery. All u need to do is simply download any rom u want to try in zip file fornat. Then place the rom u downloaded on the root of ur sdcard and put ur device back into recovery,the blue letter screen,and wipe cache,dalvik cache,and i also wipe/format all when flashing a new rom or a rom that has a different build. After wiping cache,dalvik cache,and also wipe/format the device with recovery or use Calkulins Format All zip. Ater all that then simply choose install zip via sdcard with the rom u decided to use. I reccomend StrongSteves blue odexed rom,Calkulins rom,and the Maddoggin roms are also pretty nice. Just research a little more on flashing roms thru recovery. Its easy after u flash a few roms. Hope that helps and good luck. Ive found that as long as i can boot into recovery or samsungs download mode u can usually get the device up and running again. Really the biggest risk is flashing radios,modems incorrectly. That can truely brick a device. Again good luck
