Try to force the phone into download mode and flash a fresh stock firmware via Odin.
This is for S5830 so follow this procedure but use your own files and key combinations of S5830i.

I have managed to get my phone into download mode, it says ODIN MODE, I am tryingto recover the phone as it has lot its Imei number and I want to re install the stock rom. At the moment it is on Jellyblast v3.03. The problem I am having is when it is in downlaod mode Kies cant connect to it. How do I fix this problem please, I am getting just a little desperate.
I tried to recover the Imei using glaxy toolbox and HEx editor, but couldnt do it, there was no backup showing, just efs backup, and that didnt seem to do it. Hope I am making sense to someone Help!!
I am talking about the galaxy GT-s5830i

Hi,
Jellyblast ROM did the same for me.
Found this link:-
[TUTORIAL] Unbrick/Firmware restore | Flash GUIDE | ROM List & REVIEWS [09/11/2012] - xda-developers
Have not tried it myself yet, it's on my list of things to do, luckily I have more than one phone so using my spare at the moment.
Let us know how you get on

Update:- Followed tutorial, recovered my phone from softbrick and a very pleasant surprise was that the process restored my IEMI :-) :-)

Flashing a fresh stock firmware via Odin will solve your problem. It requires the phone to be able to access the download mode, and as long as that's running there is no need to worry. Just flash it and it'll be as good as new.
Follow the instructions carefully or you might just damage it permanently.
Use the link posted above by Jeffers, its a good tutorial.

Ayush,
Is this efs folder a samsung only requirement?
Will flashing a stock ROM restore my lost efs file with my correct IMEI number?
When I flashed my ZTE Blade with CWM I did not get any lost IMEI problems

Don't know about the efs requirement you are talking about, and also i have not used any other brand phones much so i really cannot answer that for you.
Imei losses are very unpredictable, they can happen due to several number of reasons, although i have seen several S5830i users getting this problem while flashing some jellybean lookalike roms.

Flashing stock firmware via Odin is just a full cleanup and reinstallation process, its better than flashing via CWM, no previous code or files are left behind to cause problems. But flashing stock rom via odin usually does not help in restoring lost IMEI but in some cases it has helped, very rare cases though. Although for S5830i there are methods to backup and restore efs partition through galaxy toolbox but its not available for the S5830.
If you are a victim of lost IMEI on S5830i then lookup this toolbox. Some people who did not have a backup prior to the loss were able to recover their imei number using this toolbox and a hex editor, look it up there are some tricks available.

I have since been told that the Galaxy Ace does not use the efs folder to store the phones IEMI, which is why when I open my efs folder it is reported as empty!
Don't know where IEMI is stored on the Ace, but once phone was recovered including IEMI I downloaded Galaxy Toobox, backed up my IEMI and when I checked the backup contents it has my IEMI correctly stored in it. Just hope it works if I have to restore it again.

Fortunately the galaxy toolbox works for the s5830i model. Also the most reports i have heard about imei lost is by the S5830i users, mostly by installing some rom name jellyblast, usually flashing stock firmware seems to have resolved the problem. But its wise to keep a backup just in case because imei loss is really a huge problem, renders the phone quite useless.

Are you certain that use flashed the correct recovery file? as in the one that was built for s5830i and not s5830 or any other variant.
If you cannot access recovery mode anymore than you will just have to flash the stock firmware back via Odin. This should not have happened if the file was correct and you followed the instructions properly.

You are either not pressing the buttons correct or are pressing the wrong combination.
Try again
