Default bricked and fixes

heyy guys. after my phone recently bricked (pritty sure its bricked) i decided to post this thread in hopes that people who's phones have bricked before and they've fixed then can post instructions for people who are currently in the same situation (and possibly links to websites), there are ways to unbrick samsung galaxy s series buy using one click unbrick (google it ) and you can also use odin, cross your fingers and pray to god that it will recover your phone :P.

it would be fantastic if people can post up any useful guides for other make's of phones such as htc, sony ericson, actel, etc since there arnt any threads directed mainly at phones being bricked i thought this would be a good idea

anyway.. this is my dilemma with my phone.

*power button pressed to switch on, samsung logo comes on then the phone reboots about 0.7 seconds later.

*plugged in charging (without it switched in) screen flashes a black sceen constently

*plugged in charging (with switched on) exactily the same as the first one

* can not boot into recovery but however can boot into download mode

iv tryed using odin to re-flash it but when it reboots it just does the same

as for one click unbrick it wont install on my laptop even with admin privs D:

and as for me im completely stumped and cant figure out if its a soft brick, hard brick or a permanent brick :L any help would be fantastic

if anyone can think of any way i could possibly recover it PLEASE let me know :L

chears guys

okaii guys.. i made a bit of progress on my phone (Y) i used odin and bombarded my phone with a incomplete tar fine, then it would display the battery image (but not as charging)
and when i switched it off (after removing the battery) i managed to get the samsung screen on perminantly. after a few attempts to flast a full rom on it it then started with this (brief design) *computer* .. /!\ .. *phone* (/!\ is a yellow warning sign with an exclamation mark in it). does anyone know what i can do now?

Ahh okaii buddy. Right. Try downloading oneclick unbrick and running it on windiws seven as admin. It tends to be funny with other versions of windows lol. I cant guarrentee it will work as i havent had a chance to test it since my phone reverted back to just flashing. You can find one click unbrick in google just type it in and follow the instructions if you do try it i hope for the best so let me know if it works

Hey your phone isn't bricked if it turns on, from the reading I have done if your phone is bricked then it will not turn on at all. If it is getting somewhere and then rebooting from what I've read it's usually fixed by flashing a new ROM. You'll have a better chance of fixing your phone if it is turning on as opposed to it not doing anything whatsoever!!
I am new to this and this is just what I've gathered from articles, xda-developer threads and posts on this forum I am not an advanced Android user....yet.

It turns out your phone and mine were semi-bricked just flash a new rom or try one click unbrick (i have no idea how to use it).
