Ok so i have a samsung galaxy s 4g and i tried to update my firmware from 2.2 froyo to 2.3.4 and i messed up along the way somehow and my phone got bricked. i tried odin many times and i cant get into recovery mode, ive tried the 3 button combo but i can get into download mode. when i power up my phone the screen goes white then says "vibrant SAMSUNG" then goes back to white then back to the vibrant screen. It wont boot up. I have tried the jig also, maybe i need different .pit files and .rar files? i dont know please help!

You flashed the wrong bootloaders. What bootloaders are you trying to flash?

The boot loaders generally get flashed with the PDA file (I think).

Go grab chadster's KG4 ROM here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1183413

- Put CODE_T959VUVKG4_CL1385158_REV00_user_low_noship.ta r.md5 into PDA
- Put hawk_Sidekick_VibrantPlus_831.pit into PIT
- Put SGH-T959V-CSC-TMB-VIBRANTP.tar.md5 into CSC
- Put T959VUVKG4-Phone-CL1037720.tar.md5 into Phone

Don't mess with any of the check boxes, and flash.

Where you on froyo or GB? How did you "brick" it? Are you familiar with odin or heimdall?
