Hello everybody!


I've tried to find a solution, but without success.

Today I tried to install CWM on a french Galaxy S.

I've rooted the phone with z4root and after I started on download mod with adb.

Then with Odin3 I installed this file "Root-XX_OXA_JVK-v2.7-CWM3RFS.tar".

After that the phone rebooted automatically, unfortunately it's rebooting eachtime on the galaxy s logo.

The problem are that I can't boot on download mod or on CWM.
When the phone is off and I plug it on charger, it doesn't charge!

I think my phone is bricked.

Do you think you can help me or it's dead?
Is there a hard reboot procedure or something like that?

Thanks

Are you sure you can't enter recovery? Volume up+home+power.

Yes i'm 1000% sure!
I can acess the Download Mode, but Odin/Heimdall does not recognize the USB connection...

Keep Trying
I know this is weird but keep hard resetting it. Try like 20 more times before you give up. Worked for me in the past I know it is weird. I had just flashed a new factory ROM.

Thumbs up It's fine
Hello,

I've bought an USB JIG for my SGS GT i9100 and I've been able to install ICS SLIM using Odin v3 1.7.

Very easy...

I advise this solution..

Thanks for your help.

did u try vol down + home + power button to go to download mode? if it can do that, the problem is just find some driver to make odin recognize your phone. search for "usb driver for samsung galaxy s" in google

then you can bring back your phone to live by downloading any rom you want and flash it via odin

ps. but if you cannot go to download mode, JIG USB with 301 K ohm will help you look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rdn5GoRjhn0

Same problem here, I actually didn't see this in my search and made a new thread about it (feel free to delete). My computer had KIES on it so it had the drivers already and it's the same computer I went through the download mode before with so I have the drivers. I tried to reinstall them but still nothing.

I fear I may need to buy out my contract

I am sure that I am right with this. "If you root, do not use KIES" so you have to uninstall KIES and download separate USB driver.

Then it should see your phone when connect with ODIN

Hope you got your phone back alive soon
