    Just tried to do the latest PFD update and now the phone vibrates, boots to the blue windows logo, vibrates, blue windows logo and so on in an infinite loop. Is my phone pretty much dead?

    Oh god nobody else install it. Tried the reset combo but nothing happened. Was just about to try flashing back to GDR3, never done it before though, perhaps I'll hold off.

    The Galaxy S5 or Lumia 930 are tempting me at the moment, can't be without my phone really.

    Found this - Any ideas where to get a copy of the software

    I pressed vol up and camera and then power on. This gives you the download mode. Now you can reflash your phone. The only solution for now.

    Exactly. I've tipped Windows Central off about it, don't know if Samsung would cover this under warranty, might try flashing GDR3 back to it, but I'll wait a few days and see if another solution arises. Personally I think they are dead unless flashing works.

    Yeah there's a thread on the ATIV S board regarding the download site and it gives you instructions on what to do; I'm currently downloading the files but think I might wait as I don't want to risk totally killing it.

    You can still access download mode - so a re-flash is still possible, and I think the only option really.

    All the needed information is here:

    My only MAJOR fear is the battery - I have no idea how much is it filled and if it is charging in download mode? If it dies halfway during OS flashing it might get completly bricked.

    Well **** it, if it dies I'm gonna buy Luma 535 or something. :D
