Recently my SGH-1897 stopped booting. It would go to the clockwork mod screen. From there, I tried to flash a new rom, but it never worked. First it told me I had the wrong rom for the phone I was using, so I downloaded a different one that said it would work for 1897, but it would fail during the flash. Now, it won't boot at all. It goes to the 'at&t World Phone' screen and stays there. I've tried Vol +, Vol- and Power together, but no change. Help?

What did you try to flash? Also, what was installed on the phone before you tried flashing it?

If you can get it in download mode, you can use Odin to flash stock ROM (without bootloaders if you were on GB and up). That should get you back up and running.

If the button combos don't get you in download mode, you'll have to make or buy a jig.
