This Thread Is For Them Who Bricked There Phones


Don't start a new thread for your bricked phone & post here.

We will help you with every possible solutions.

Here are some quick tips :
(Here I'll use the terms like Download-Mode & Recovery-Mode, If you dont know what are they please click here. There "BOOT to RECOVERY" & "BOOT to BOOTLOADER" means how to enter into Recovery-Mode & Download-Mode respectively.)


A Bricked Phone May Have One or More (Below Problems) :

1. Booting to the ROM(Android) not possible.
2. Booting to the Recovery-Mode not possible.
3. Black screen or Bootloop(Repeated Restarting of Phone at Boot Animation or Samsung Galaxy Y Logo).


Possible Solutions :
(Remember there'll be data loss using these solutions so always try to keep a backup)

1. If you can still enter into Recovery-Mode
(a). Try to clear Data & Cache then check.
(b). Try Installing a Custom ROM using CWM(ClockWorkMod Recovery) & check.
(For Custom ROM & CWM Visit here.)

2. If Recovery-Mode didn't helped Enter into Download-Mode & flash an odin supported stock rom(using ODIN 1.84 or 1.85) from Doky73's Thread(Flashing Guide in 2nd post).


*You can inform me, if anything left out.

Note :
1. I'll be not held responsible for anything that happens to your phone.
2. Before posting try to search for similar type problems out there & try the solution, if that doesn't solve your problem then post here.

Exclamation help! bricked SGY

galaxy y bricked

i bricked my sgy last 3 weeks.

here's what i did.
-installed creedsix rom.
-installed UOT kitchen Themes.
-wipe data

problem
-stuck in bootlogo
-softbricked.
-cant go to recovery mode
-flashed too many times, still stuck in bootloop

i flashed at least 20 times, with different firmwares.
but still no luck, still boot lop.

my professor said something about secondary bootloader that might help. but i had definitely no idea what it is.

i asked some techies on the mall, and they said that this phone must undergo the JTAG process. but it cost $20.

help me. thanks.

can you go to download mode??

(try pressing volume down+ home button + power button all at the same time)

if it still can, then your SGY is still good

go to this ---> thread

and just flash your country's firmware
switched to apple

From where you got the firmwares.... How you flashed...
Ever tried re partitioning.... Ever flashed boot loader....

For info... Jtag or boundary-scan is used for testing & servicing high technology electronic boards...

just for info, jtag will not fix the problem. IT IS SCANNING.. like trouble shooting.

that only means that those technicians are pretending to be well educated but the truth is that they only wanted to get some cash out of your pocket.

PRESS "THE BUTTON" IF YOU THINK I DID!
My Soaps:
U20i - MiniCM9 +nAa ICS 04 kernel OWSUM!
SK17i- Official cm9.1 + FXP Kernel nice!
ST18i- Super JB + SuperFusion kernel.

this one will a little bit off topic...what is creedsix?is it a rom for SGY?

if the phone still can boot that means everything is fine. pull out the battery, wait 10 seconds, reinsert the battery, do three magic combo button, you'll enter recovery mode. don't worry about our bootloader. our bootloader is stored in different partition thus installing any custom rom won't affect our bootloader. as far as i know, there is only one person who have messed up with bootloader and got an ultimate hard brick.
