Default HOW TO FIX A BRICKED SAMSUNG i780!!!

OK CHAPS! MY 'IMPOSSIBLE TO HARD RESET' I780 IS WORKING AGAIN!!! THANKS VERY MUCH to all those who put these items up on XDA!! i

(i didnt' post the files or do all the hard work, I have just put them into the steps to help others)


For all those seeking the 2 magic steps of how to fix your bricked i780:

(1) Download the LOADER: http://www.mediafire.com/?agoddxiwtgq
(2) download the ROM (in this case, the English ROM) - http://www.mediafire.com/?mtmxr1dxzz5

put them both in the same directory and extract both files.

Run the loader, and push 'PDA' and it will select the ROM.
Plug in the USB / sync cable
Push 'detect'
Switch your phone on and the software will immediately start uploading the ROM.
When its complete, unplug the cable and switch the phone on.

Thats it! There you go! Fixed phone! No need to send it to Samsung!

Its not as east as a hard reset, but it will do!!!

This worked and I tested with my bricked i780. Thanks very much for the poster and the people whose contributed on this.

Please take note of the following:

- Your machine must have ActiveSync installed. I suggest you to disable USB sync option.
- You need to have the i600 modem driver installed. Do a search on Google - it can be easily found. Your Windows should recognize your phone as i780 immediately when it is power on.
- Follow the steps above, if the program didn't upload the ROM 1st time, do a reset by using the reset hole, and once the phone is restarted, the program will upload the ROM immediately.

Can you describe details on how windows detect the phone? My PC detected the phone but I failed to install the driver software. Also, you didnt mention about emergency mode, should I turn on the phone normally or switch to emergency mode? Thank you!
