Many Samsung user don’t know how to installation firmware for her smartphone, i think this is something that needs to be known by every user, if at one day their phones there was a problem, such as could not get into the Home screen / Boot loop, stuck on logo, can not return to the factory mode or even damaged partition so that the phone they have hardbrick. As in my experience in 2008 of still using Samsung Galaxy Young S5360, at that time I was profoundly ignorant about the android, or can call blind or newbie. I just resigned to Samsung service center, but because of the warranty period is over, Samsung SC gives a fairly expensive repair rates up to 1/4 of the new price of my phone. hmmmm depressing. and i intention undo and try to find solutions through internet. turns out it seems so easy, It did not take long my android phone alive again 🙂
Well, turned away from my experiences, I hope here we all can be a Own Android Service Center. Follow the step-by-step guide below to get started!
