Hi.

I've run into a issue with my Galaxy Ace 2. It won't boot, I can't access recovery and I can't charge it.

My phone was working fine last night (12th October). When I woke up my phone was frozen so I took the battery out and tried turning it back on, this is when it only showed the "Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 GT-i8160" screen and it stays on it and it does not go past this screen. I searched up fixes and so on, I used Odin and put the Official i8160 firmware which it went through and passed. But even after that my phone will not turn on and still stays on the same screen.

Even after using Odin to put in the Official Rom, I used Vol Up+Home+Power to try and go into recovery, but after the second time the "Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 GT-i8160" screen comes up it will take me to a grey screen and will not proceed to the recovery menu no matter how long I leave it and how long I hold down the home button.

I can not charge my phone because when I plug it in via USB, it will give me the loading screen that shows before the charging screen shows and it will crash on that loading screen. If I try to use a mains charger, it will automatically turn on the phone giving me the logo screen and will stay on the screen. I have tried all known soft brick fixes but still does not help.

All help will be useful. I need my phone everyday. Thank you.
