Default [Q] Samsung s3 mini bricked

Hi All,

Need some help. My Samsung S3 mini i2800L was flashed with the wrong firmware in an attempt to upgrade to Jellybean 4.2.2 using odin and it failed . It remained in download mode and I did a battery pull ,now the phone is absolutely dead. Black Screen for all the following:Recovery Mode and Download Mode .The phone wont power on at all. The only sign of life , is when I plugged into my girl friend's Toshiba laptop via usb cable and it searched and installed the drivers.In addition Windows makes a sound when the device is plugged in and unplugged, but is not being recognized by Kies or Odin. I also tried a USB JIG with no success.

Is there any debrick file that I can use for to place on my SD card and attempt to boot from SD, or is JTAG the only option left?

Try this and report back : take out the battery , hold the power button for 30-35 sec and put the battery back without releasing the power button
