Default SGS2 won't power up / start after repartitioning

Hello. I've had problem with my I9100 today. It suddenly powered off, then I've seen only Dorimanx splash. After wiping data (factory reset) through recovery, I've seen only SGS2 bootlogo. I wanted to flash my phone with another CWM via Odin, but it always failed. Then I've tried repartition my internal storage via Odin and PIT file, but after wainting about 20minutes nothing happened. I disconnected my phone, pull off battery... now it won't start, won't boot up, go into recovery or download mode. After connecting charger cable still nothing happens.
What else can I do to fix it? Motherboard replacement is the last one I would like to do.

Did you have a firmware / rom file in Odin as well as the pit file?

No, just pit file.

Looks like that could be the issue. I used this guide when doing mine - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538947

Main focus is getting the phone into download mode, or even recovery mode, then we can reflash and repartition.

After connecting it nothing happens, my PC and ODIN does not recognize it. I can't get into Download Mode. I've no idea what else I can do. :/

You may have to buy a USB jig to force it into download mode. I've never used one but hopefully someone who has will stumble on this thread.

Try a jig but understand it has a 0.00000000000000000000001% chance of working; this isn't a case of your phone having a really good chance of booting into DL mode simply by slotting a jig in the USB port.

Motherboard replacement most likely scenario as TheImpossibleEnemy has said.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
