Hello dear friends!

I have following issue with the phone>

1. Phone had froyo installed on it.

2. i tried to copy a custom rom to sd, and then, i just tried to flash it directly via stock recovery. (completly noobish, i realize now...)

3. apparently by the status from the stock recovery it succeeded. BUUUT actually not...

so>

4. i got stuck into the samsung boot logo...

so>

5. i tried to flash cwm recovery through this steps provided by this tutorial.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1342190


6. I now got a black screen instead of any recovery. tried it also with the froyo version of the recovery (designed apparently specially for froyo devices) and also with the gingerbread one. still no joy....


now, i am really lost and have no further ideas.... please help me at least get this back to stock again (it is the phone from work and i will have a hard time explaining them that i bricked it.... )...


please advise what should i try further??


THANKS!!!!! :D:D


PS> pls take into account that i am kind of a noob regarding this device... did a lot of things on my hox, but i do not know to much about this s5570....

I flashed jb from odin, so no cache deletion needed...


But yes, for custom rom install delete cache data all except sd before!!


So now cyanogenmod is up and running!!:D
