Hello

I have the next issue

I have a Samsung Galaxy Europa GT-I5500

And it bricked when I closed odin 4.36 after, when the phone was in downloading mode due that there was no completion. I wanted to install a newer version of the clockwork (mod) recovery.

I installed an old version but was unable to install the CyanogenMod (hte one from psyke83) that I wanted. And after I wanted to try a newer version of the clockwork (mod).

And now the phone is with the PC---to Phone icon brick mode.

I tried the volume down + main button + power off and isn't working

Also i tried to run the one click unbrick and isn't able to connect to the phone. Seems that the phone doesn't reach the computer

I tried an usb list (lsusb) in the ubuntu and does appear if i connect it.

I tried both in windows 7 and ubuntu

Do you think is a softbrick? Any clues? recomendations or questions for more details

I had a problem with the buttons on the phone the volume down wasn't working.

What do you mean by home button the one with the home icon or the main one with the metal borders because is that button the one that you need to use.

I also tried the resitor of 301kohms between the pins 4 and 5 didn't work.

Now i have the 2.3.7 working stable at the moment

try that combination of buttons if not tell me

I am pretty sure there is nothing you can do about it, if it is completely bricked.
And the phone won't turn on, in any case what so ever?

Depends if it is hard bricked or soft bricked. If the screens turns on and appears the PC---/!\ --- phone. The he can try to use the three key combination or the usb homemade jig. Otherwise he can try to find someone with the JTAG

search in google JTAG galaxy for more info.

sounds like a hard brick. People claim that taking the battery and sim out of the phone for 30 mins (min) and then putting back in and booting to download mode sometimes works
You could try that

On galaxy s this also happens from time to time, even i had it once. Try if Odin possibly connects anyway and flash again, if not, remove your battery leave it out for 60 seconds and then try if you can get to download mode again. You definitely have not hardbricked your device...

My GT i5500 Boots into Download mode but I can't seem to find all Stock firmware including CSC etc, all the links I have tried on here are dead or don't have the correct fw for my phone. I would use CFW if I knew what was good and worked but I am not to sure. Any suggestions??
The Stock firmware has the letter code of NJ**2P the stars are unknown letters or numbers but its a UK phone.
