    I got This and phone restarted And when I start a phone there is an exclamation yellow icon.. Where did I go wrong?

    • The error you’re getting is: Can’t open the serial(COM) port.

      Possible solutions:

      1. Make sure Samsung Kies is closed (disabled). Also, another reason for this error is you don’t have Samsung USB Drivers installed.

      2. There is a high probability that your device will not boot successfully just after flashing. If this is the case wait till Odin says PASS and then (close Odin and) shut down your Galaxy Ace (press Power button for a long time or remove battery). Now, Go to Recovery Mode (Press Home + Power buttons) and then select Wipe data/factory reset and Wipe cache option and then reboot your device.

      3. It sometimes happens that an update with Odin fails, why?
      Odin shows here a failed problem with the COM port.
      This Com port is a virtual port that when you plug in the USB cable it is automatically found.
      When can sort this problem when it happens?
      Firstly go to Windows Task Manager and close all Samsung Kiss programmes that may be open.
      Then remove all USB devices from your PC apart from mouse, keyboard, and the USB cable to your phone. If you have a USB hub then remove that too.
      Now plug the USB that’s attached to your phone into a different USB port.
      That should have sorted the problem and the flash then works.

      • Hello again, I noticed that odin failed because of other external usb’s. So I removed them and perform the steps again this time It went smoothly.
