I already uninstalled all drivers/devices with exclamation marks (None with question marks found). Which was the "Unknown USB Device Device Descriptor Request failed" device. I uninstalled it whilst phone was connected with USB debugging on. Had them reinstalled through scanning for Hardware Changes. They showed up again with the same exclamation mark. Tried it again. Restarted the computer. Or just tried to Unistall all USB Drivers and have them reinstalled. Right now I have the latest drivers installed.

Thanks for the quick Answer by the way.
I'm not sure but it looks more or less like a hardware complaint. Maybe your phone's USB port is faulty. Please contact Samsung service center to resolve it.

Hey so you are my last hope before I literally will give up on rooting this phone and will just have to try it with a different one somehow :(

So here is the problem:
When connecting my phone to PC via USB in Download Mode no "added" message appears in Odin. Instead I get the infamous "Last USB Device Malfunctioned and could not be recognized" error from windows and my phone does not get connected or recognized. USB Debugging is activated. Latest Drivers are installed. (Every suggested solution for "Code 43 error" and USB connection problems on windows has been tried). Phone has been factory reset several times. Tried on different ports, with different cables, different PC's etc. Restarted PC, Redownloaded Odin files.
I just don't know what to do anymore. I just cant get it to connect. Any Ideas or tricks please?


Don't worry, let me try to help you.
Please go to the Windows "device manager" on your pc and look for any devices with exclamation or question mark. If there is uninstall the driver and in "Action" tab click on "Scan for hardware changes". Do this all while your phone is connected to your PC.
By the way what is your Windows version.

Did you enabled USB debugging? Also do you have the exact same model mentioned here. If all are satisfying, try to download a different version of Odin and try again.

Could you please confirm your phone model number and firmware version. Also, did you enabled USB debugging on your phone. If enabled, try to install all of your phone drivers and reconnect your phone using USB data cable.
