Hi XDA,

I've searched in many threads but i can't find an anwser.
I've bricked my Galaxy Gio when i flashed a custom kernel. It was the kernel in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1319816
Now it does nothing, I can't boot in any mode, not in download mode, not in recovery mode...
I have android 2.3.3 Gingerbread.
Is there any way to unbrick or is my phone just an expensive decoration now.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi !!!
same new here

This ll work in some cases
Hope this will work in your device as well

Pull the battery to kill the boot loop (or whatever is hosed up), put the phone into downloading mode and re-flash the stock ROM.
Free to try...

Thanks for quick reply but i can't go into download mode as i said. Also my phone is just totally off and won't boot at all. My pc also doesn't detect it when it is plugged in.

If not even adb detects it, i'm pretty sure you're buggered, mate.

did you try and leave the battery out for some 10 min or more?
If adb does not detect the phone after that, then it seems to be a brick for real.

One easy procedure which you might want to try with no guarantee it'll work:

-Remove the battery, microSD and SIM from the phone.
-Prepare the Odin software and your ROM on a known working system
-Connect the phone to the computer with the USB cable.
-With one hand, simultaneously hold Volume down, home and power.
-With your other hand, put the battery in the phone.

I was able to get Odin to detect an otherwise bricked phone this way. I was however unable to get further than the "setup connection" step. Maybe your outcome will be better.

Regards,

Darkshado

that worked for me to on a brick when it didnt even went on, no recovery, download mode etc, after waiting 2 weeks and trying to repair it myself I nearly throw it away, and then suddenly it went into download mode for about 1 or 2 seconds, wich told me the battery whasn't working.. so I started to charge the battery, and hoped it would boot, but it didn't.. using that method given above, I could get into download mode again, and flashes a new stock ROM. now I still have my phone, working.
