Unhappy [Q] Symptoms of a bricked phone? (related to all skyrocket users)

background info:
I am (or was) running MHX superlite 3.0 rom with romracers stockish 0.3 kernel.
UCLA3 modem and radio.

So today my phone decides to restart itself and never will load past the "first two"
samsung screens.

Once these "two" samsung logos pass by, the screen turns blank (not on)
and starts to vibrate with 1 second intervals.

The only way for it to stop is if I pull the battery.

Heres the weird part.

I tried to ODIN back to stock...once I put my phone into DOWNLOAD MODE.
The little android guy that says DOWNLOADING "dont turn off" will show for a millisecond and then the screen will shut off and start the vibrations. ODIN will not recognize the device either

So what I have is a phone that wont load past the samsung logos if the power button is pressed

AND

Download mode works, but the screen will turn blank and vibrations start buzzing.

My phone is having seizures. The only way to stop the vibrations is by pulling the battery.

I have accepted the fact that the phone may be done for.

It was a great 4 months together. tear*

Well, if you can't get it sorted out there's always this! Unless the hardware is busted, but maybe he can fix that too??

OP... what rom/kernel/modem were you running before MHX-SuperLite? and what wipe process did you use prior to MHX flash?

Can you get into recovery and restore a backup?

If you don't have a backup and can get into recovery, try wiping data/cache, then go into mounts/storage and format system, data, and cache, then go to advanced and wipe Dalvic cache. Then power down and try to Odin back to stock again.

If this doesn't work, try another data cable or usb port on your machine (or another pc if this doesn't work). Maybe communication is getting lost due to bad usb connection...

EDIT: Are you saying you tried to Odin even though Odin wasn't recognizing your phone? That could be part of the problem. Try re-installing the Samsung drivers and see if Odin sees it then.

If you can get into download mode you aren't hard bricked yet...

I think he is saying that Odin recognizes his phone but his phone goes black before he can't start the reflash right?

Did we lose the OP'r? I was just getting ready to flash this ROM (MHX) but Jooosty has thrown up a curveball. Hope you get it resolved.
