GT-I9300. Kies emergency firmware recovery code is blank, is there anything I can do?
my battery perished in the phone (went all bloaty) and of course caused issues..
After trying far too many things which didn't work, I ended up trying to do an emergency firmware recovery. When it got to the bit where it displays the recovery code, the box was blank so I ended up cancelling it and trying again but the code was still blank.
Now when I plug the phone into the pc it comes up with the "firmware upgrade encountered an issue...." and suggests I use Kies - the problem is that of course there's no recovery code!
So I seem to be stuck. Is there anything I can do? Odin doesn't really seem to be recognising the phone properly, kies can't recover and I can't find any options via google.
Any suggestions appreciated.
