Okay. I've read all your posts. You have not provided any information that would be useful to troubleshoot your issue. However, I can make a few guesses that could possibly help, and then you need to give us some details so we can help further.
1) You don't say if the phone is stock and what version of stock was on it, or whether you have custom firmware. I'm assuming you have stock, then rooted and installed the wrong version of Siyah, or perhaps a version for Siyah not made for the I777. As far as not being able to use the functions when you boot into CWM, it is probably because the select key is the home button, and not the power button.
2) You can't flash back to stock using CWM. I'm not aware of any zip with straight stock. You must use Odin to flash stock. Since you are having connection problems using Odin, I am guessing that you either did not follow the correct sequence, or that you did not install the correct USB driver on your Windows pc. Another possibility is that you have a bad usb cable or connection.
3) If you spent a month searching on the xda forum for this phone, you would have found any number of posts by myself that detail all the answers to all the questions you have posed so far. I've posted these things several dozens of times.
Please let us know if any of the above helps you. Please search these forums for issues connecting to Odin. If you are unable to find any answers that way, please post back here with more detailed information.
