Hi guys im only new here,
Im not sure if i posted this in the right section feel free to move it MODs

Anyway I think i may have bricked my galaxy s2, I get a message that says "Firmware upgrade encountere...." ,after i tried to flash a stock rom back onto the phone after using lite'ning rom for a while, the process failed about half way through, I was using Odin, i can no longer get into recovery mode or clockwork recovery....I can still however get into download mode but my pc wont recognise the device through odin.....

I think it may be bricked

If the phone is bricked could i get a usb jig and reset the binary count to "0" and bring it to my authorised samsung repair shop, would they know i have rooted the phone and would my warranty still be covered?

Thanks for any help guys, i loved this phone and now its useless..

This should go into Q&A.

What stock firmware did you flash exactly? Stock carrier?

No worries. That's why XDA is here for you to learn.

So you can get into download mode but Odin doesn't see your device. Seems like the Samsung drivers isn't installed on your computer. Try installing the device drivers manually. And see if Odin recognizes your device then.

EDIT: did you make sure kies wasn't running in the background when you're using ODIN?

Try uninstalling kies and install again. Once installed plug in your device and see if it downloads the drivers that way.

I'll try and look for the drivers while you do that.

You'll have better luck in the at&t gs2 forums. You won't find your file here. Sorry

Sounds like a soft brick. I had problems flashing once (work computer was playing up) and it was complaining about needing an emergency firmware recovery in kies but I just re-flashed the rom when I got home and it was all good.

Hopefully it's the same for you.
