[Q] Did I brick my Samsung SGH-I777? Please advise.
I had Jellybam 10.2 and had trouble moving to 10.3 update. So....
I tried to flash a newer version of Philz CWM 5.10.9. it failed and threw the screen on the phone to Phone -> Yellow Triangle -> Monitor, followed by: "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again".
I tried the Vol UP & Vol Down and Power button to get in to ODIN mode download mode - just futile - could not get it.
I installed the Kies and the USB Driver - the phone is recognized as a Samsung Mobile CDC Composite device and Samsung Mobile USB Modem but it shows as Unspecified - Gadget Serial in devices and Printers in windows 7. Kies is unable to connect to the phone.
Have I bricked the phone? Is it time to move on and get myself a new phone? Any assistance would help.
Please advise. Thanks
