What Bootloader are you using (Gingerbread or Froyo )
and What ClockworkMod recovery are you using ?

CWM and CWManager works only on CyanogenMod ROM .

Also CWM backup doesnt work on rfs ROMs like Stock or Arkas.

Reflashing to stock ROM will work .

You will get stock ROMs here:- SamMobile.com | Everything for your Samsung Mobile | SamMobile
You will need Odin on your PC to flash the stock rom, there is a thread in this forum which will tell you how to install ROMs, do check it out.
I guess you can upgrade to 2.3 as most countries have a compatible ROM. Make a point to have a look at this: The Stock ROM and Odin Thread All about Samsung Galaxy 551 and more

i installed the app Mobile ODIN Pro from market and it said that the device is not supported and wanted to dump something so that it makes the device capatible.....it did it and created a log....

After that, when i restarted the phone it didn't start..and then i flashed a different ROM from ODIN....

Wrong on both counts
Mobile Odin is based on the ClockworkMod Recovery .Unless you submit details of Working CWM and the system dump to Chainfire ,he wont even attempt to support it .And Basically it wont work .

No. 2
What "ROM " you flashed on what phone on what Bootloader ?
Froyo ROMs wont work on GB Bootloader and vice versa
ROMs of other phones will brick the device .

Give EXACT details of what you flashed on what OS (Froyo or GB ) and then I can tell what kind of brick it is .

Then give in warranty .Thats the best thing you can do . You will get it back in a month's time or three days depending on your service centre .

That's plain recklessness . You cant just go on multiple flashing without any thought .
Stock ROM means you were on Froyo .
USB jig only works if you have the Bootloader intact .
If the "stock ROM " corrupted the bootloader then your phone is dead .

Did you try removing Battery and ,SIM card SD card and attach phone to USB ?
Did you try emergency download mode e+power ?

Also I dont trust any site except sammobile.com for stock ROM cos chances of bootloader corruption are more on other sites .

Try flashing in emergency download mode and see if odin detects it .


USB jig will work anyway if you can find one .
