Hello Im new to this forum,
I may have previously posted this in the wrong section, my fault. I need some help getting my phone back working if possible.
My phone is completely stock and i wanted to root and install area rom. I followed the instructions downloaded and installed the proper files in order to get CWM on my phone. I also downloaded the pdf idiots guide and re-downloaded the files from there in order to check that i indeed had the right files. The problem is when i run Odin 3 v3.07 and put the CWM tar into the PDA slot with reboot option unticked, i hit start and I get this.
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
and it just freezes there and does nothing. The phone appears to be soft bricked, when i try to power it up it says "Firmware upgrade encountered and error. Please try again." It will go back into odin download mode. I don't know what to do, I have tried googleing the error and some people say to reflash a PIT file and I was gonna try that but I can not find the PIT file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
redo odin over again and wait for the big green pass to show up
I redid odin waited 15 min and odin shows no progress.
Then i did this, "try downloading the tar file again and make sure the phone says downloading now do not turn off target.......then start odin up again" using Odin3 v1.85 and got this back from Odin.

<ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
with a big red fail.
I think I waited at least 5min. but not sure, is there a amount of time i should wait for to see if it will continue?
try downloading the tar file again and make sure the phone says downloading now do not turn off target.......then start odin up again using the 3.07 one
Now im waiting again and Odin3 v3.07 is stuck at NAND Write Start not showing any progress after that. been sitting there like that for 5 min, but i will continue to wait atleast 15 mins as tfusr19 suggested.
even tried twrp tar and same result.
