  1. So desperate for advice as Samsung don’t want to know. Everything except the volume up button letting me have a dodgy connection to my laptop. From what I get is that all I need is Odin a rom and even though I have killed my Linux must I flash what is left? Anyway as I’m a broke pensioner and will never afford a phone this expensive again.
    Any advice or help or just a stepping guide would be great.
