[Q] Stuck in "Connect phone to PC" mode
I have a samsung galaxy player 5 international version (YP-G70CW). I wanted to upgrade to Gingerbread, but my attempt failed.
I put it into download mode and started up odin, trying to flash this kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1414565
It got stuck on "Setup connection...". I now realize it was probably because I didn't shut down the kies process running in the background (which really should be included in the guides).
nyway I tried it a few times more, but then gave up and held down the power button to exit download mode. I'm now stuck in this mode only showing a "Phone ! computer" image every time I try to restart the device, and I cannot get it back into download mode. Odin recognises the device and I didn't really flash anything onto it so I would think it would still be good?
I read somewhere else that to fix it you should take out your battery and sim card for a while and try again. The Player 5 cannot easily be opened to get to the battery though, so is there another way to get out of this mode?
I've tried looking for an answer but come short. Would really appreciate some help.
