Default [Q] Soft brick and no ROM?

Looks like I have soft brick and no ROM.

I have rooted Samsung GT-S7562 Galaxy S Duos, and I wanted to falsh a PMP_U500_GT-S7562.zip ROM.

I managed to install CWM using Odin.

Then I obtained ROM manager from Play Store, and restarted to a recovery mode (before the restart I was asked wither to wipe -- I said yes, do it). On restart I've chosen PMP_U500_GT-S7562.zip on sdcard and pressed install. It did something, and restarted to a screen with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark.

The only thing that works -- is Vol+ Home Power combination -- it brings me to a ARM9 mode RAMDUMP mode. If during this I plug the phone to windows kies tries to connect to it, but never seems to succed, and Odin sees the phone.

I tried to put recovery.tar the same way I did when installing CWM. The proccess seems eternal.

Any ideas on what I may try to do with odin? Since odin seems the only thing which can get to my phone now.

I also tried OneClick.jar to no success on Windows and on Linux.

Your key combo is wrong, recovery is: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...#Recovery_Mode

But anyway since your phone is borked, I would advise an ODIN reflash. Get the proper ROM image for your device and flash it in download mode.

See here: http://www.idroidspace.com/original-...duos-gt-s7562/

Best of luck and do take care while doin an ODIN flash, a wrong step and you are gonna end up with an expensive paperweight.

Well ARM9 mode is everything I've got: pressing all buttons does nothing. Here's everything I've got:

Oh I solved it.

Get into a download mode

Remove batary for a moment. Then install it, press VolDown+Power+Home for some 5 seconds, then press VolUp. After this connect phone to PC (with Kies installed).

Odin (version 1.85) in the PDA field choose stock_recovery.tar file.

This will reboot Your phone. Get into the download mode again. This time in the PDA field choose [StockRom].tar.md5

This will reboot phone to a working state. Try to flash a custom rom in a week or something.
