This should be a sticky or added to a existing sticky.

Do you get no power when you turn on your phone? Nothing shows up on the screen at all. You have the worst brick possible that is recoverable. I wished this post came out before I did a warranty swap.

Here's how to fix: Credit goes to OP
- You need Odin program before starting.
1. Remove the battery, external SD card and SIM card.
2. Wait 10 seconds.
3. Open odin3
4. Insert battery.
5. Connect usb cable.
6. HOLD VOL+ and VOL- while plugging in USB

Got download screen and flashed with ODIN..
Let ODin finish.

*** This program recovered my dead phone with no power, nothing shows up on my screen. - Dead and also a stuck boot up screen.

I saw another post that has the similar set of instructions 6. HOLD VOL+ and VOL- and then press the power button. Nothing happens.


I am curious how people this post has helped. Can you respond when you these directions gets your phone up. Thank you.

this is cOLD. and has been posted numerous times.

A.K.A. Check [STOCK] Odin 1 click. and this does not recover from a completely dead phone that doesn't have button combo to download mode.

Some tools developer or reseller said that the phone is bricked,
and need Jtag tool to do recovery.




Jtag is usefull for empty or totally corrupted ROM recovery.

But if you see this, your phone is FAR from brick !




Just press the keys, bring it back to download mode




Then plug to cable and flash a working firmware again.





No special tools is needed,
No need to waste time and money send for repair,
Don't waste your good phone and don't break it for jtag.

Are you seeing the Phone-!-PC symbol? I was in a situation where my phone wouldn't accept the the up/down key press to enter download mode. I ended up having to make a jig which basically will force the phone into download mode. You can search the forums on how to make one.

No, if you see that symbol, you can recover using the method in first post to get to download mode. That is how I got past it.

This is what most people always do to enter dl mode.

However, many phones shipped without the button combos needed for it to work. In that case it is possible to make a USB jig to trigger download mode manually. see this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=819551
