what exactly is the device doing to be soft bricked? All the files in the thread you linked are correct so its kind of hard to help figure things out, did you make the proper selections in odin?

Yes, I did the selection properly, byt softbricked I meant a bootloop, but now I flashed a froyo jdf, and my phone isn't booting nor getting in download mode, anything I can do?

Only thing i can think of is repeating the steps into download mode by doing, power down Phone if you had not already, remove the battery, plug USB into Phone, hold down both volume buttons and while holding both, insert the battery. If that fails to work I'm afraid it could be hardware failure, I've had it happen to me once but i was lucky and was covered by insurance and had it replaced for free. I've had much better luck by powering off the device while holding both volume buttons down inserting the batter followed by usb cord just be sure to have Odin up and running first. hopefully you get your device back up to par...

Wait, if you are the guy with the T959V model, these forums are not for your model, let alone the JFD firmware which is for the T959. Link for your specific model: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s-4g
