[Q] Dead Epic, very stubborn... can someone help?
For starters, I am a bit new to the ROM/Flashing gig, so it might come as no surprise that I have somehow managed to foul up my phone in the process. I was attempting to flash a new ROM to the Epic and, while using Odin, the process failed. Now, when I go to power the phone on, it gives me an image of a phone connected to a computer by a dotted line with a caution symbol in between. The phone will still boot into Download mode, but it will not communicate with Odin anymore, so I am unable to re-flash the phone. Odin detects the phone and begins the process but stalls out at Initialization. The longest I have left it there was for two hours after trying all of the different mentioned intervals in other threads.
My question: Is there anything else I can do or do I just need to take my phone to Sprint and subject myself to their mercy?
Thanks guys! I ended up using a non-stock cable (One from an Amazon Kindle, actually), as suggested, with Odin and it was back before I could question whether it was working or not. You guys are amazing, I really can't thank you enough!
