If you know the Gmail account and password you used for Google Play, you must enter it (when asked) but you must be connected via data connection or WiFi. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset. Unfortunately, this will delete all apps and data unless they are stored on your SIM and SD card. Do the following to perform a Hard Reset:

You do not need to have access to your phone when you flash a firmware on it. You only need to download the right firmware for it and use Odin to flash the downloaded firmware. To initiate Download mode, press and hold the Volume Down+Home+Power key, then press the Volume up button to get your phone into Download mode.

In the step: "Download the correct firmware for your phone." I can not find it

Assuming that this is an Android device , preferably Samsung:

  • download and install Samsung Kies:

www.samsung.com/ph/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP‎

  • take out battery and write down your S/N or Serial Number (of your Samsung device)
  • launch the Kies program
  • on Kies, go to tools, firmware upgrade and initialization
  • turn on caps lock (on keyboard)
  • type the model number of your Samsung device (don't put S4 etc.)
  • enter the s/n or serial number
  • Kies will download the firmware
  • once completed, click "start upgrade"
  • it will now download the firmware on your phone
  • once completed, click OK

If not Android, please specify your phone's brand and model or just bring it to your service center to get it reprogrammed.

Hi, thanks. I'm wondering how to get into my phone?

My Galaxy y S5360T is stuck on the reboot screen. No matter what I do, whichever option I have tried selecting, it goes black, returns to the Galaxy Y logo then returns to the reboot screen. I have not selected 'wipe data/Factory Reset as I haven't (to the best of my knowledge) backed up my data. As I'm sure you can tell, I am a Luddite.

Unfortunately, your problem might be because of your Firmware boot option has either corrupt or have been suddenly stopped working. So the last and final solution to your problem is by re-flashing it again to a new firmware to restore everything and so you can use again your phone. Other than that, I can't see any other solution that may be applicable to recover your phone continues rebooting.

If your phone is rooted and you have CWM installed in it, you can try to boot into CWM and make a CWM backup first before performing a Hard Reset, then just recover the applications installed on the CWM backup using Titanium Backup after reset. However, if your phone is not rooted and it does not have CWM, you will have to Hard Reset your phone or re-flash it to fix the the boot loop problem.

I am unable to install an OS or firmware update on my phone?

Galaxy Y GT-S5360, I had to reinstall the OS on the phone as I had forgotten the screen lock password and decided a full reset was in order. However upon completion I realized I hadn't installed the newest firmware, so I asked Kies to download the newest updates and install them on my phone. The process went fine up until 7% completion on installing the new updates on the phone, which in turn then rebooted and said I had to perform an emergency recovery on the phone to undo the damage. However the phone stopped responding to the Kies program and returned to the crashed state where it tells me to do the recovery solution once more. Since I am unable to install the new updates or reset the phone to factory settings I was wondering if I should use ODIN or another similar program to repair the issue. As I have no experience with ODIN or this phone in particular I am stuck on which ROM to download and load into the program. I've found one possible ROM which is S5360_XXMI1_OXXMD1_XXMC2. I live in Norway. Any suggestions would be wonderful as I have a little boy wanting his first phone. Thanks in advance

My phone is totally showing a black screen and I can't even open it. Though it was fully charged. What can I do?

The phone started with minor blackouts yesterday while I used to power it on again, after it is the same thing, now I couldn't power it on using the ON button but rather using the charger. after it couldn't even start with a charger, thanks. I have tried: Powering on. I think it was caused by: It may be a virus because recently all my files on SD card disappeared
