Haha I did this too outdated odin and bootloaders dont mix. I had to flash it at least 5 times to get it to take. Odin wouldnt recognize on the com after every bad flash unless I reboted. The last time I couldnt get back to download so I flashed it in the phone!pc screen with a different odin and it worked like a charm. Stomach was churning like it was trying to make butter lol.

First time I used ODIN my roomate accidentally unplugged my phone (cable was crazy loose)... wound up on the phone---!---PC screen and that was scary as crap. Took a little while, but I figured it out

Basically, unless you're in the realm of bootloaders, this phone is difficult enough to brick (which I'm very thankful for!)

The burning question in my mind is, do you mean the failed upload attempts?

...or the month your kick-banned from hanky panky... because of course you keep trying, and eventually you get there. waka waka waka

Tried to flash my phone while driving, I hit a road bump and next thing, I know ODIN stopped working and my phone had a bunch of garbage display on the screen.

C*0000000*** something like that.

used Jig back to download mode. But the remaining 30 minutes drive back to my desk was horrifying.

Been there, done that
You tried to flash your phone while driving??

I used Clockwork mod to flash back to a Rom I liked better with a nandroid backup and it just got into a bootloop. I kept trying, but the only thing I could get to work was to Odin back to a stable Eclair build I had on hand.

BUT it gave me a red FAIL and just stopped mid-way through. However, when I unplugged and started my phone it came up just fine. PHEW!

Hours of fiddling and my wife was also all like "What the heck are you doing??? Can't you leave well enough alone???"

No. Of course not.

But if you finish your have a higher chance of your phone producing more phones.
