I was updating the firmware of my Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 with Samsung Kies 3 on my Macintosh and suddenly my laptop turned off, so I disconnect the phone and tried to reboot it and after it displayed the following message on its screen:
Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.
Also on top left of the screen there is some text being displayed in the tiniest readable font it seems, which says:
PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9505
CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL
SYSTEM STATUS: OFFICIAL
KNOX KERNEL LOCK: 0x0
KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0
WRITE PROTECTION: ENABLE
eMMC BRUST MODE enabled
Since, the laptop turned off in the middle of the update, when I restarted it Samsung Kies 3 had no idea what happened and now my phone won't even show up in the Firmware emergency recovery window of Kies 3. Firmware upgrade and initialization also doesn’t work since ‘GT-I9505’ doesn't support initializing.
Can anybody help me?
P.S: My cell phone isn't rooted or anything. I don't have any custom recovery installed. I was just using the official Samsung ROM and OTA updates whenever they arrive.
