Exclamation [Q] Samsung Galaxy Mini BRICKED (HELP!)

I installed Clock Work Mod on my Samsung Galaxy Mini and after that, I selected "Reboot from recovery mode" and then after that the device turned off. It would not turn on anymore! Can't enter download mode and recovery mode, screen is off, no backlights. Odin would not detect it too. Please help.

I don't know if this is the right section. Thanks.

By the way, is the USB Jig for SGS the same size with the USB slot of the Galaxy Mini? Does the USB Jig works on Galaxy Mini? Is this tried and tested on this pgone? Sorry for too many questions. Thanks.

Go a google search with "unbricking galaxy s jig"
It can be use for xperia mini too.
Gudluck!


It might be,battery suddenly empty. Its hard for phone to brick.Charge ur phone 1st at full... And choose the right baseband according rom prequistid. I b4 this rooted and installing CWM on this galaxy mini and the phone at samsung logo or samsung galaxy mini logo.
As on my condition,follow guide that been explained. If u have flashed the CWM, REBOOT. Then at samsung logo,press volume down,then u can access CWM. To avoid other probs, flash it with cyanogen mod. Or it maybe cant be loaded.

As far i concerned, for galaxy mini got 2 type of recovery. That is,
Enchanced recovery
&
Tass Recovery

For me,choose tass recovery.

Sent from my HTC Vision with Doubleshot Rom

(I think this set of steps works in these conditions: Hard-brick, absolutely non-responsive to any button combination. Odin still recognizes the phone when connected through USB port)

1.- Remove both the SIM card and de microSD card.
2.- KEEP YOUR BATTERY REMOVED
3.- Apply the Download-mode button combination (known by you all)
4.- WHILE HOLDING THE COMBINATION, insert the battery, and keep the buttons pressed untill you get the download mode.
5.- Flash your phone with a valid firmware through Odin (Preferebly, have Odin prepared before doing this trick)

I finally flashed it widh Gingerbread 2.3.4 but i don't really like it, because it ended up a little buggy, which i am still trying to get rid of.
Anyway, i hope this helps.
Have a nice day

This tutorial is very complicated and I have tried to explain it as best as I can, hope it help some of you guys.

PS. If you have any USB driver problems or windows deleted problems with device managers or drivers in general causing errors you must fix these problems first or use a different computer, if the drivers wont install properly you cannot do it on that computer.


EDIT: Gingerbread 2.3.4 firmware, I can confirm this works
