I rooted the phone, I installed safe strap and tried to flash slim bean and it brick my phone to the point that it wouldn't turn on and won't even charge. Lucky I only had one week with the phone and got another one back. I have rooted many galaxy s phones this is the most difficult one ...so ridiculous. I'm done with Samsung! !

Should have read the front page of safestrap and also the the thread in Q/A section. You can only flash 4.3 Touchwiz roms. Safestrap is the only recovery that works for MK2 currently.

Why don't you do some reading and learning about your device before you brick a 2nd phone for not reading? Everything you have asked in this thread has been thoroughly covered already. It's not Samsung's fault that you are doing things wrong.
