Samsung S3 Android phone, not rooted, stock firmware.
In chronological order: I turned on USB debugging, although could not use fastboot. I used Odin to flash multiple recoveries, but I don't think I was successful, I believe the phone must have been rooted first. I downloaded some recoveries as .tar.md5 but I also downloaded .img and I tried to turn it into a .gz - at that stage my phone still did boot Android, but normal recovery stopped working (Volume Up + Home + Power) - Then I went to settings and chose Factory reset. Now all I've got is Odin mode. It reads: Custom binary: Custom System Status: Custom
Did I soft brick my phone ?
I din't loose data but I'd like to know in what state my phone is. Although I didnt intend to have an Android phone, now that I have one I will also try to mess up and change the bootloader if possible. Thank you for taking the time and answer.
