okay i did that. went back into download mode. I tried running odin again, followed all the steps and this is what it reads from the info box within odin:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> SPH-D700-EB13-8Gb-REL.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)
I think what happened is my Android 2.1 got wiped out. can't find it or see it or nothing. I tried the recovery mode, got into that and no OS to boot up to. What now??? Still at a lost.
