Default Galaxy Mini semi-bricked, what do i do?

What the title says.

I flashed the phone for 2.3, it ran nicely, i figured i'd install Cyanogen, now the boot screen seems to freeze. The bootscreen is a very simple white text on a black background. The text says 'Android' in small pixelated letters and is positioned at the right of the screen.

I can access download mode and recovery mode, but not actually start the phone up. So what should i do now?

Chill! I appreciate you're desperate for a response, but the thread is only half an hour old

I'll move your post to the Galaxy Mini subforum where hopefully users of the device will be able to assist.

If you can get into recovery mode, can you try flashing Cyanogen again?

I think it's completely bricked now. Can't enter recovery... I only get a strange image on my screen. There is a symbol of a phone, connected to a PC. In the middle of them both is an alert sign.

Just wait a sec... You can easily fix that by yourself.... Just go into download mode and reflash gb there is a tutorial here : CyanogenMOD7 and Andro - ID. ROM for Galaxy Mini. Questions and tutorials here. . The third post from the top in the first page Hope this helps. Btw that sign means that you device is bricked "Software Brick" . That you can probably fix by yourself. Hardware brick is when your device is busted and there is nothing that you can do. Only to give it to samsung guys . So the solution for you is just to refalsh the firmware
