The clay was that I had no clue what the "3 button fix" was and apparently I didn't have it because I couldn't boot into recovery or download mode. The next day I decided that I wanted to flash a new rom (adb into download mode) and Odin3 hanged on FactoryFS (idk why lol), and I pulled the plug and totally got stuck on the Phone+!+PC screen. I ordered a Jig and bingo up and running again .
The hard brick was when Continuum 5 first came out. As soon as I saw Gingerbread 2.3 my mind went nuts lol. After flashing there was lots of FCs and I decided to start all over again from stock. Of course I used stock with three button fix and my phone never turned on! . (btw this was within 2-3 hrs after Continuum 5 came out)
Now I am absolutely carefully with everything! Triple reading directions, reading some of the posts in the thread, etc.
