Take out the sim and sd card. Remove battery for 10-15sec. Put only the battery back in. Hold down vol up+down while plugging in usb. Should go to download mode.

try pulling sim and sd card and batt, waiting 10-15 seconds and inserting usb first and then cable, similarly to mentioned above...
I remember getting bricked once and batt-> usb didnt work but usb-> batt saved me

Get 'er into download mode again..

Remove your battery to make sure your phone is off, first of all.

- Hold down VOL+/VOL-, but don't touch POWER
- Plug in your USB (keep holding down VOL+/VOL-)
- While still holding VOL+/VOL-, slide in your battery.

Boom.
