So i was odin-ing back to stock when for some reason Odin stopped. I start freaking out cause what else am i gonna do. My wife hates that i play with my phone.

Back in the early days of vibrant i effed up a voodoo lagfix (was able to fix it), but it cost me $50 buck when i had to send the replacment phone back after fixing mine.

So (like a noob) i unplug my phone and leave it in download mode. Nothings working.

I turn the phone off (again LIKE A NOOB), and it give me this angry picture of a cell connected to a PC...

Lost my Sh*t!!!!

However, was able to get into download mode, retore stock, and avoid a sexless month.

So, who has a good OMGZ-BRICKED-MY-PONE-OH-WAIT-NO-I-DIDNT moment...

I'd be willing to bet 99% of people on this forum have had this go down and freaked out the first time. It's one of those things that's inevitable when messing with this stuff.

I once used a broken USB cable that I broke earlier (but forgot). It made very VERY poor contact with the phone so it disconnected if the phone was touched.
I used that cable with ODIN. Needless to say, it disconnected MANY times and I kept thinking I'm done. Finally I remembered the cable is broken and then I TOOK IT AND HELD IT AS TIGHT AS POSSIBLE with the USB contact.
Scarriest hour of my life.

I pulled the USB early, just before Odin says completed, on a bootloader flash. Holy **** what a scary moment. It booted up fine though.
