Exclamation [Q] Help Phone won't turn on after trying to flash liquidsmooth

Hi,

I rooted my phone today and everything worked fine, I then went to CWrecovery to flash the liquidsmooth rom I downloaded. I selected to reboot device after a successful install but now it won't turn on, no screen, led, etc. if I plug into computer I get a contection noise from my computer but thats it. Can't boot into download mode or recovery... What can I do to fix?

thanks

Did you unlock and flash a custom bootloader?

I think so. I rooted/unlocked bootloader.

Did this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6439&nocache=1

For Both Root and Unlocked Bootloader ***RECOMMENDED*** - Download SuperSU + Unlocked Bootloader to your SD Card

Then tried to flash LiquidSmooth from forum.

Did you wipe data factory reset prior to flashing the rom?

If you forgot to wipe the phone would still attempt to boot. It just might send you into a bootloop

Yeah except I can't get it to boot at all. No response to turning on, pulled battery, waited 30 minutes, then tried to boot again. nothing. not even the LED. now if I leave the battery out and plug the phone in to the computer the LED turns on but that's it. At the computer end I get the sound for plugging in a USB device, however it doesn't do anything else and there were no drivers for the device: QHSUSB_DLOAD.

Is it hard bricked?

Try getting into recovery by holding volume up+home button +power button at the same time. Hold it for a few seconds and it should vibrate and one the Samsung logo comes on you could let go. At this point I would either try re flashing or restore your most recent backup download another rom and try again.

Tried that, as well at the Vol Down+ home+ power. Neither worked, no vibrate or screen boot.

Take your battery out for at least 5 minutes than put on the charger for awhile (couple hours) than try again. If none of this works hero had a wire up on how to fix your soft brick phone that might help. If your bootloader wasn't unlocked I'm not sure what to do to fix that. I hope you get it going. I'll post that link if I find it.
