Easy now, you're not bricked. If you can get into recovery or download mode, you can reflash and get it running. I'm not familiar with AT&T so not really sure if you can just reflash latest firmware for them or not. If you can, just start from scratch and then re-install your apps or venom again. If you have an nandroid backup, of your working rom or original firmware, (always a good idea ), then you should be okay. You are NOT bricked.

Yeah your definitely not bricked. I'm not familiar with safe strap. But if you can't get safestrap to boot you can Odin stock mk2 and your phone will be like its just coming out of the box.

Read this thread. It should help. On page 4 is a screen shot of odin. You'll put the tar file in the PDA slot of odin http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=49687770

Ps, Google Odin ver 1.85 and use that.

Actually If you follow my thread on POST#2 there is guide on how to with image and I also added Odin v3.185
| ★ MK2 ★ FULL ODIN TAR FILES ★ MK2 ★ | ★ UNBRICKED ★ Feb.06.2014 ★ | @Hodgesdroid check Deadly Venom v1.3.9 POST#4 for Safestrap guide and instruction....... BTW first thing u should check when u installing new rom either u created rom slot 1 or installing to stock slot is ..MAKE SURE U HAVE SAFESTRAP.APK INSTALLED AND INSTALL RECOVERY FROM SAFESTRAP.APK

Swyped From MK2 Dark Venom SS Edition
