    firmware update encountered an issue samsung galaxy s2

    Hi,

    This seems to be a known issue and I am wondering if someone can assist me.

    My PC crashed whilst updating my Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-i19100 and now the message "firmware update encountered an issue samsung galaxy s2" appears on my screen.

    I have tried everything to resolve this issue. Kies does not recognise my phone and I have been unable to boot via holding down the power button and volume keys.

    I have heard you can flash by using Odin but I am not sure how to do this and I worried about what it will do to my phone. Can I just restore it to factory settings.

    I am using -
    Samsung Galaxy S2 GT- i9100
    I am based in the UK and us the 3 network.

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    Hi Chris!

    Odin is used to restore your phone. It is also used to root, flash roms, and bring you back to a factory status afterwards. It is used by Samsung themselves and only pertains to Samsung phones.

    You can test and see if Odin will recognize your phone. Download it from this guide here and extract it once.

    Firmware upgrade encountered an issue.

    Disable anything Samsung related in your task manager and disable your antivirus temporarily until the project is over.

    Then right click the exe and run it as administrator.

    After that is up and running put your phone into download mode by the instructions in that thread.

    Plug your phone into your PC with the factory cable and a box in Odin should turn yellow and IDCOM should show a random number.

    If that happens you can flash the stock firmware from your Telecom and be good to go.

    Thanks Ollie,

    On the guide that you have linked it says I will need to download the firmware that I have been linked to. Which firmware do I need and where can I download it from?

    3 is H3G? If so then here it is:

    Thanks for all your help.

    Just one more question. What exactly do I do with the 7-zip file. Do I need to extract it?
