    I managed to flash to GDR2. Wondering if I should have just flashed to GDR3 instead.
    No, you did the right thing - another user, Dragone, just reported the thing I mentioned why it is better to flash GDR2 - he flashed to GDR3 and when updating to 8.1.1 he got ONLY the OS update 8.10 without the Samsung firmware and so he know has a phone with the well known camera bug and he will probably needed to flash again to fix that.

    See Dragones about screen photo here:

    OS is 8.1.1 but FW is the GDR2/3, I'm not sure.

    So I highly recommend everyone flashing going with the GDR2 firmware I recommended in the previous post.

    I have an AT&T Ativ S Neo that has this same problem, I don't want to follow these directions and ruin the phone.
    your phone is bricked because nobody has the original image of WP 8.0 for this type of phone
    Samsung ativ S vs. Neo S is not the same phone

    contact your carrier and ask for help, maybe they can fix it

    Well, try updating it might work for you, but if it doesn't, use this FW: I8750XXBME1_I8750OXABME1.rar

    I'm wondering if this is tied in to the failed DP update a few months back, the one where the partition size was inadequate? My ATIV S was affected by that issue and now has the infinite boot loop issue...

    Busy reflashing to GDR3 now - strange how it popped up and said that the partition size was wrong during flashing too...

    Used CSC NEE on the flashing, now on 8.1.1 with firmware 2424.14.9.4. That's the 8.1 firmware isn't it?

    I contacted Samsung and they said it is under warranty and that I should send it in for service, do you think they will fix it?

    You can unbrick it. There's a tutorial here, but it's in French (the blue box at the end of the article) : [MAJ] Solution aux redmarrages intempestifs du Samsung ATIV S - Mon Windows Phone

    Not without flashing a ROM that has the BTU CSC in it and I'm not sure if one is available.

    They did when I had the flash memory partition issue with the GDR3 PfD, all they will do is flash the phone back to the latest version they support with all the relevant CSCs in it.

    I think the update may have been pulled due to this issue.

    Wouldn't it not work because I have the AT&T Ativ S Neo and not the regular Ativ S?

    How long did the overall process take (From sending it to them and receiving it back)?

    About 7-10 days and it literally was dead on 10 days until I got it back.

    Sorry, I have no idea. The ROM they use seems to be the stock one.

    Okay I see. I think I'll try taking it to a AT&T Device Support Center and see if they help and if not I'll go the Samsung service route.

    Just a quick question, I took my SD card out before flashing to protect my pictures, if I stick it back in my phone now that I'm back up running 8.1, will it format my card?

    It shouldn't but I would backup the contents of the card to be safe. It should only erase any apps that have been copied across.

    Back up first! It shouldn't but you never know... I removed my SD card, inserted some other in and then put my back in and some photos were corrupted..
