• Phone was rooted and working fine
  • I did a factory reset

Now, it seems to just boot into the Samsung animating logo that does not go away...

I'm able to boot into the recovery mode and view the logs. which has logs of:

couldn't find any tzdata when looking for localtime
can't open /dev/tt0: No such file or directory
no adf devices

Any chance to salvage this?

flash the same stock boot.img. its in BL_J500xxxxxx. extract from it or flash the whole BL_J500xxxxx. for extraction use 7zip, then right click on the boot.img > add to archive make boot.tar flash it in AP, using odin
