Bricked my Epic4g
Thanks so much in advance for any time and help!
I have bricked my Epic4g running EI22, honestly, in attempt to root the phone. I was following YouTube instructions from QBKing77 (gives very detailed instructions which I followed and has lots of good comments, so must be specific to my phone/experience) and was on the step of using Odin to upload ACSRecovery when Oden reported as FAIL! and my phone now will only turn on to a screen with an exclimation point in a triange sign between a phone and computer symbol. When I use camera+volume+power it again only turns onto this screen. I attempted to reset the phone to factory settings but Odin again will only report back with FAIL! message when trying to load factory pit and tar files, as Odin will not upload anything at this point and is not working. Today I purchased a new USB and using a different cable as well as deleting and redownloading all involved software and files have not helped. Sprint refused to reset the phone (understandibily so..) and I am on the verge of putting in an insurance claim and dropping the $100 for a new one but was wondering if the pros here had any recommendations.
I actually went to the RadioShack in the mall (before I went to Sprint) and the associate recommended I check out this site.
