    can you advice on issue. I followed instructions my phone is able to go to ODIN mode without a problem. Initially i did an emergency firmware recovery via KIES 3.
    After that my phone start up and did the initially applications setup after the boot. the phone keeps crashing right after Device Registration Portion starts.and device keeps telling me Bluetooth fail. Accesabilty fail, and so on.

    So i used this tutorial afterwards to try and fix device after i downloaded the stock firmware from your link including Odin. i install drivers to device, Odin 3 does detect device. So i select AP and attach the rom and i keep getting FAIL> SBL1 fusion 2 error on my device.

    Please advice

      That error suggest that the older firmware is refusing to flash, you will have to flash the latest 4.4.2. Firstly let me explain the problem, you did an emergency recovery using Kies which might have installed 4.4 on your device. Now you are trying to install Rom from my post which is 4.3 thus the device is refusing to flash it (since it’s lower).

      Solution- Download the latest 4.4.2 from the link mentioned above and try the whole procedure once again.
