I've bricked my Exhibit in the following scenario

- running 6.0.x.x (of CWM)
- and latest version of Lianaro CM (4.2.2)

everything was fine untill i decided to give a try to jfbs kitkat rom, which required me to
- use latest cwm (6.0.4.7)

after flashing the new cwm and flashing the new rom, the rom went in infinite boot loop... nothing seems to be happening
(after multiple clean wipe and clean installs , i was not able boot in)

and i decided to do restore (which also fails with insufficient arguement)
and finally get back to stock via zip (using the jacola's build), which also fails for same argument length issue

so i decided to get back to stock via odin
i flashed (back to stock ) using jacola's build, but ended up with bricked device

finally i figured out
- i need to downgrade by cwm (recovery-clockwork-6.0.1.2-ancora.tar.md5) (Odin, OPS & recovery could be downloaded from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1867870)
- and get the zip file, use odin to flash it (uvlg3.odin.zip) (url, http://d-h.st/1ao) (and it's listed on jocala's site (with mirror)http://www.jocala.com/extras.html )

( the keys of home and back would be swapped in this cwm)

(don't forget to wipe the cache/dalvik partitions)

you can strat again fresh with this phone....


All credits goes to the respective developers (i've just posted how i made use of them to unbrick my phone)

You're my hero now. HA!!! I was modding my phone off the PACman ROM as their are issues with the screen sizes (especially concerning emails), and encountered an issue where it wouldn't go beyond the Samsung Screen.
