I have a Samsung Mega 6.3 SHV-E310L and I was messing around with it and trying to put a customized version of Android on it rather than use the stock Samsung OS.

I think I have bricked it.

This is the only screen I can make appear (see attached) and I don't know where to download the correct OS that will work on this device.

Does anyone have any guidance on how to do this?

Much appreciated in advance.

Thanks for the help. I do in fact have the Korean version of this phone. I booted in download mode and pressed the volume up button to go into Odin mode.

I don't really know where to go from there.

Also i have downloaded the OS from Updato but I don't know how to install it.

Here are the pics from the download mode / odin mode.

These are instructions from Sammobile. Process is the same unless firmware is split into 4 parts.
Thanks.

I did that and I'm getting closer except that now the phone boots and is stuck on the carrier logo screen.

When I turn it off and on again I'm stuck on the batter charging screen.

I tried it twice with Odin. and I am using Odin v 3.12

If flash is successful with Odin and phone reboots, first boot can take a while. Wait up to 20 min for it to sort itself out. Common for it to sit on carrier logo for long time.
After about 20 min, remove and replace battery, use the button combination to boot into recovery and preform a factory reset and try to boot again.
