After Flashing my SGS2 100's of times, it's now a paperweight

ok, maybe not 100's of times but my bootloader showed 52 last time i flashed. Not sure what happened, but something went wrong. My phone only shows a picture of a phone, with a yellow triangle, and a picture of a computer. Under that it says firmware failed, and under that it says try recovery mode. Download mode, and recovery mode shows the the same screen described as above, and odin does not see phone. I left the battery out over night, and this morning, the same screen, and odin still don't see the phone. I know all the key combos to get into recovery or download mode, and neither works.

You have a bricked phone now. Use JIG USB to save it!

I had similar problem and resolved mine by removing the battery, reinserting it and holding down volume down and home keys while powering on (download mode). Then I connected phone to pc via usb and used odin to flash kernel. Hope that works for you.

Bah, just take out battery and put it back in and go to download mode and flash the firmware with Odin.

You only need a jig if you can't get into download mode. Though from what I've read on here might be good to have to reset the flash counter.
