Here's a comprehensive tutorial at XDA for returning a rooted Epic to stock:

I moved your question into the Epic All Things Root area for you, Rileyy.

What ROM were you trying to flash? Was it the latest Quantum ROM? I know that right now they are having an issue with that ROM getting stuck on the SAMSUNG screen... If you download an earlier build of the ROM or another ROM of your choosing, then chances are it will flash no problem.

Well i bounce in between that ROM and the Epic Experience ROM... and I'd say they're both pretty much on par. I've tried about 6 or so ROMs and these 2 are my favorite. I would recommend you just download a few and test them out. Sounds like you have the foundation for a successful flash down, the rest is cake. They all flash the same way,

Boot into recovery
Wipe/Factory reset 3 times
Clear cache partition 3 times
Clear Davlik Cache 3 times
Install Zip from SD Card
Choose Rom
The you're golden.

Give it a shot and let us know how you did...

You know i don't know the rules to this forum in regards to linking other sites, but just good xda developers... then hit the forums tab... the search for the epic. Go to the Android and development section, then you'll see all of the ROMs in the thread. I'll PM you a link later.

What version of Odin are you using? I had that problem but tried blackberry cable , different usb port and the newest versioon of Odin and was able to flash back no problem. Odin version 1.85 I believe.

Ok first things first. The rom you are trying to flash requires cwm 3.0.0.6. Or cwm 3.1.0.1 because it is an ext4 rom and cwm2.5 does not support that file sytem.
About your issue, try rebooting your computer, pull the battery on your phone. Start up odin and get all your stuff ready to go. Go back into dl mode then plug it in to your computer. If it dont see it right away just unplug the cable and plug it back in. Try that up to 3 times. It should go.

Just put the new version of cwm on your sd card and go to recovery and flash it, then wipe everything, ad them flash your rom. I'm not sure why everyone uses odin to do everything on the phone when you can just go to recovery and take care of any problems that arise..

Just do a backup before you do anything, and then I like to do another once everything is all set up the way my wife likes it so I have a current image to jump back to when she screws everything up.

when your phone hits a state as to what I'm referring to, the only screen you get is the Samsung.com splash screen, or you can go to dl mode. when you're in this state, it doesn't allow you to go recovery. if that was the case, i don't think this thread would have been made. thanks for the reply nevertheless

i finally got my phone back from a soft brick. phone just hung at the samsung splash screen (samsung.com) and it wouldn't boot up any further from that. after doing extensive research, i was able to get my phone back!

in case anyone is wondering how i did it, just read the ENTIRE thread here at this link. it helped a lot
