I managed to brick my SGS within 24 hours of getting it:
My computer wouldn't (and still doesn't) recognise my phone (sometimes for a few minutes at a time) when I plugged it in.
I thought it would be a great idea to try flashing from to Froyo from Eclair anyway, and while it was going on, my pc disconnected the phone and bricked it COMPLETELY... I pulled the bat, tried all the 3 button combos (they worked before I flashed, I tested to make sure), and nothing worked...
I spent hours looking through the forums and the only advice I saw was to try a jig, before reading that for a 100% bricked phone it would not work...
What to do
- Take of the back case of your SGS, inbetween the camera and the speaker, you will see a little circular hole...
- Take a pin/pen and poke it...
- Hold the hole pressed in and press the 3 button combo for download/recovery mode
It should go into download mode and from there you can flash on a fresh firmware!
I saw NO mention of this hard reset's existence anywhere on the website at all, it worked perfectly for me!

My launcherpro is listed twice in the task manager?? I don't think this is right, does anybody know whats wrong?
It seems to be using twice the ram because of this, and when I stop one of them everything runs fine, but it reappears in the task manager after a while and then it uses double ram again. Its annoying.

i installed insanity 070 (all working fine)
then rom manger
selected install rom from SD in rom manager and went to select the sound pack from the first post of this thread.
phone rebooted then got stuck on the first boot screen galaxy's i900.
did not move for an hour.
my fix was an eblaze re flash as mentioned in my previous post.
can someone confirm that this rom and rom manager work ok.
as if i select install rom from sd in rom manager then select it the phone reboots and stays on the first boot screen.
Ok I had posted earlier about the game Unblock me free and how it was`nt registering my movements correctly.
Well I tried another Unblock me(Lego) and it works perfectly, BUT its squished, I have my DPI set to 240 tried 220 still the same, I`m stumped....
Well I kind of sorted out the Unblock Me thing, I unticked the app scaling in Nitrality, went back to 240 DPI, rebooted, un installed current Unblock game, restored my back up one with data and its all sorted again.
So with the app scaling unticked now all my apps are perfect? I don`t know
