It's been a long day... Let me start by saying that i had my device rooted for a month without any issues. Last night, i noticed some apps were killing themselves for some reason but i didnt give it much thought. This morning while i was working, i noticed the phone app was crashing and not responding, so i decided to restart it. It ended up getting stuck on the T-Mobile boot screen. I tried to boot it into recovery mode, but it wasn't the normal recovery mode. It didnt give me option to scroll up and down with the volume keys. It's just a black screen with:
RECOVERY BOOTING......
ODIN MODE (HIGH SPEED)
PRODUCT NAME: SM-G935T
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
FRP LOCK: OFF
WARRANTY VOID: 0x0
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
HP SWREV: B3(2,1,1,1,1) K1 S2
SECURE DOWNLOAD: ENABLE
It just stays on this screen until i power the device off, and it goes right back into a bootloop. Also, i can't boot into safe mode either.
So, I figured I would try to flash the stock firmware with Odin. I downloaded the firmware and tried to flash it and got this error:
Added!!
Odin engine v(ID:3.1203)..
File analysis..
SetupConnection..
Initialzation..
Set PIT file..
DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
Complete(Write) operation failed.
All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
I did some searching and found that i might need to flash a .pit file, so i found the one for my device and put in in Odin. I tried to flash it and got this error:
Added!!
Odin engine v(ID:3.1203)..
File analysis..
SetupConnection..
Initialzation..
Set PIT file..
DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
FAIL!

Re-Partition operation failed.
All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
At this point, I have no idea what to do or try. I need my phone for work and ive already missed today. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Did you tick the re-partition options? If not, the .pit file won't be flashed properly.

To fix a rooted phone that won't boot, you can try to put your phone into full charge or get the phone into recovery mode after powering it off. If it doesn't work at all, you can also try to flash a new custom rom via Odin 3 to fix.
