[Q] Rooted Froyo to Frozen Galaxy S 9I000 after a flash with SGS Kernel Flasher
I have like many, played with my Android for 2 years now. I have a bricked Infuse GB (finally toyed with it to its death last week), so I pulled out my old Froyo unrooted backup. I rooted with SuperOneClick - easy. I made some kernel tweaks in Rom Toolbox Pro, and also changed a few status bar icons. I did several reboots and all was running well. I did need to adjust some more tweaks but I saved those for my next big change, when I decided to.
...look into more of what I could do and downloaded the zip file for Voodoo Sound. I read that this could do wonders on my Froyo stock rom and was compatible - actually, I read fairly safe. So I can't say if this caused this or not. It could have been my lack of booting after each simple change, font, notification icons..etc. But I didn't do much more before I flashed Voodoo Sound
I downloaded SGS Kernal Flasher from the market, and when I flashed and it booted, I got the SAMSUNG screen. Then followed by a new black screen with GALAXY S GT-I9000 in white with Samsung logo on bottom. And it stays frozen. I cannot enter recovery mode or download mode to my knowledge - or should I say, experience.
Since this was my backup and what I was doing seemed relatively harmless Im a bit shocked. I loved that my font and icons were changing, something I couldn't do with my gingerbread infuse using rom toolbox pro.
So now I am stuck on a bootscreen I've never seen before, nor intended to flash if that is what happened. Was this flashing Voodoo Sound or was it my negligence with other? I just rooted this yesterday after getting too frustrated to fix the GB. I don't think I had but 4 apps downloaded and really left most of the build.prop stuff alone beyond some minor adjustments for battery life.
So I'm stuck on a boot screen with a phone model I am not familiar with, cannot get into download mode or into recovery mode. I had a TWRP Recovery zip file I never set up yet, never got CWM recovery working - regardless, I just started playing with it so I'm lost as I thought I could just wipe, reinstall packages and reboot fresh. I hate this to be my first post, but I usually find all the answers I need from you guys and I appreciate all the efforts you put into this site to help noobs like myself from creating disasters. I just didn't know what to do and if I'm not hard bricked, I don't want to end up that way.
I thought unrooting would work, but I can't get into the phone so it won't connect to the computer. Also, when plugged in, it shows a battery frozen at zero. I know it's probably charging but that must mean I messed up something that starts at boot. Anyone willing to help me resolve this issue and get me back on so I can make phone calls again - something I should probably stick too, haha. But sometimes, mistakes are the best teachers...so maybe I'll learn something easy from the pros here.
