Default [Q] Samsung Galaxy Spica stuck in bootscreen after update

Hello everyone,

Today I bought an used Samsung Galaxy Spica from a friend as a backup phone for my HTC One X. It had Android 1.5 installed so i tried to update it to Android 2.1. I tried to update it with KIES or PC Studio, but it both failed. I still dont know why.

So I searched on the web and found out that you could update it with ODIN.

So I used this tutorial with the included files. http://www.greaky.com/2010/02/samsun...ndroid-21.html

But when it reboots I get a image of a phone with a exclamation. I also tried the Flash 1, Flash 2 and Flash 3 method, but in the end when it reboots it gets stuck at the samsung screen with a filled bar.

What am I doing wrong guys?

Default Suckup SpiceGenMod RC1

Have you been here yet?

Search on google for suckup.de and samdroid and you'll get there.

Tends to be the most stable ROM and also the best guide on how to get a good stock version in plus then root and install the ROM itself.

Otherwise the forum for Spica is over at samdroid.net

btw, if you still get stuck at the bar after resetting then let me know.

It could be extra kernel files or similar causing the boot problem or any manner of things but if you can get to recovery then try doing a wipe of everything from the main menu plus the advanced menu... Otherwise reset back to stock via Odin, but make sure you use the right one for your region, then root, then install a ROM.

And don't forget to sipe caches and dalvik AFTER installing the ROM!

That normally means the kernel can't boot the OS.

I normally go into recovery, advanced then wipe dalvik-cache and battery stats then back to main menu and wipe cache then reboot again.

Or, phone with exclamation is normally download mode. Have you tried using Odin with the spica settings file to re-flash a stock firmware to reset? Then root it agian and ROM it after that? ie start from scratch with 2.1/2.2 and ditch 1.5 all together?
