Bricked my Galaxy S2... or not... what to do?
I have a Galaxy S2 that I rooted and unlocked. Then I followed the instructions at the beginning of this thread to remove the junk from my carrier hoping to use a stock ROM.
I did this successfully in the past on a Galaxy S with Odin and so I expected an easy ride with Odin this time as well.
After several attempts and after trying two different ROMs the result is the same: the phone won't reboot.
This is what Odin displayed the last time:
<ID:0/014> Odin v.3 engine (ID:14)..
<ID:0/014> File analysis..
<ID:0/014> Enter CS for MD5..
<ID:0/014> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<ID:0/014> Please wait..
<ID:0/014> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<ID:0/014> Leave CS..
<ID:0/014> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/014> Firmware update start..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
I suppose it looks fine... but the phone won't boot. It displays its Galaxy SII logo and then the screen goes blank again. It can still boot in recovery or download mode, but I tried a factory reset in recovery mode and that had no effect.
The two ROMs I tried to flash were:
I would like to have UK/France compatible software in it, so I looked for XX and XW. I would happily install an old Gingerbread though, but the download links for older versions lead to a strange site now. Would be happy to install any old Android version that is NOT branded by a carrier, then update using Kies.
Is my phone dead???
I loved it, wanted to give it to my boy as I moved on to an S4. Any help will be gratefully received.
