Hi, I had softbricked my s2g this morning when trying to restore my previous Custom ROM.My phone went into bootloop mode and cannot go into CWM mode. However, lucky for me still can go into DownLoad mode.
I went thru this thread and found the solution in page 13 by xxnsra
1. ReFlash CWM Recovery thru ODIN.and ..
I am back to CWM mode and managed to restore..........

My problem is as follows and hope that someone can help.
I have downloaded odin mobile and installed it on my S2 I9100 G which previously had CM 10 installed on it and I wanted to flash the official firmware using Odin mobile. I did run it and then the phone prompted me for M5 or Md5 that was detected and should click yes to verify before flashing. I clicked yes then it started verifying and when it was done it rebooted and then was stuck on the (Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-19100G black screen) and did not want to move. I waited for an hour and a half and nothing happened. When I removed the battery (I could not reset or do anything else) and put it back, the phone turned on by itself and stayed still on the starting screen (Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-19100G black screen)
Now I'm not being able to put it in recovery nor download mode.
Can any one help and anyone knows if the jtag dongle can actually force it to go to download mode even at this stage
Thanks in advance for any suggestion
