      Yea I had the same issue; now I’m scrambling to try and get my phone to get out of the error mode while booting. This apparently altered my original factory reset so even that doesn’t work.

    So the drivers and firmware have to be in the same folder, or is it the odin tool that goes in the same folder as the firmware. Do they all go in together?

    Swype doesn’t work. When you hit the power button, use to get options for Airplane mode, Power off and Restart. Now when you hold the power button, just turns off. No Lock screen. Upon powering up the phone, there is a Yellow Triangle with an ! on the screen. System Update functions don’t work. I don’t get 4G in my area as Sprint thought it was better to complete the LTE before finishing the 4G and so I only get 3g and can’t connect to Google Play unless I am on the Wi-Fi.

        At this point, you should be using Samsung’s official release of JB27. Was released I think roughly two weeks ago for the Sprint Epic SII. In reference to the above, I ended up finding GA10 unofficial release prior to upgrading to JB27.
