But the issue still remains that the phone wont enter Recovery mode. =\ I've tried with and without USB plugged in. with and without SD cards (tried 3 different cards, 8gb, 32gb, and 64gb) tried all known button combinations to start phone. and it still just freezes after samsung Logo or goes into Download mode (with Vol + and - along with power, plugged into USB). At this point I have a new motherboard in my shopping cart on Ebay and I'm waiting to get paid. but if I can avoid dumping anything more into this phone I'd Love that.

Would JTag from www.mobiletechvideos.com be cheaper? Have you tried USB Jig? Mobile tech videos sells them and you can buy them on EBay for 2 bucks. If you have a soldering iron, you can make one.

I do have a soldering iron. hmm, I'll look into a Jig. would that fix this? I was doing a bit of research on USB Jig's but it was at nearly 4am and I got too tired to remember any info.

Yeah a jig can sometimes be used to force a Samsung phone into Odin/Download mode. Jig is not to be confused with JTAG.

EDIT: never mind, I just realized that your problem was you couldn't boot into recovery, not download mode.

+1 I've gotten them to boot again on the firmware upgrade has encountered an error screen, but I used Linux, JOdin3, and Heimdall. So I would think that Odin would be able to fix this. I have had more luck fixing these things on Linux though. Odin is what cashed the firmware upgrade error screen anyway after it crashed :/

I seem to be having the same problem but mine comes from reflashing stock ics with odin from PA 4.45. I can get to the dL screen but not recovery and everything I flash passes too. But I can't get passed the pulsating Samsung logo after the android load bar.

Flash stock in Odin. Unplug from computer once it reboots. Hold in power and both volume buttons until you feel two vibrations in a row then hold just the volume buttons until it us past the loading bar. You should boot into recovery. Wipe data/factory reset and then do a wipe cache and Dalvik cache. I had the same problem.
