I suppose you tried removing battery, sim and external mem card (if you have one) put battery back in and try to get it into download mode again the try and reflash.

Same problem here... in Kies the phone just disconnected in the middle of the upgrade and windows started reinstalling the device. Then got a message saying that the upgrade failed and I would need to restore.

Did you have any luck getting yours going again? (Removing battery/sim/etc. didn't help and I can't start in recovery mode no matter what I try.)

I live in Panama where the don't sell the Galaxy S yet and this is the kind of stuff I'm afraid for. If I buy an international model and this happens, where does one go? Is there any garantee if OTA updates are not available?

Default Droid Galaxy S update fail brick

i also tried to update my new att galaxy s droid phone using keis... it started working then when it went to reset to do the firmware update, it froze with the computer and phone icons with the dashed line between them and a yellow sign on the dashed line. it would not go to recovery mode and I tried everything that I could find on the internet... i went to att store and they replaced my phone right away!! they are awesome.
watch out if you have had trouble installing drivers and then want to use keis to upgrade ur phone... it broke mine and it was permanent as far as a day of effort trying to recover it is concerned.

Confused Samsung Galaxy i9000

I'm on my fourth Galaxy within a month. Did the upgrade to 2.2 with Kies on the second phone and was toast after one day(the first had a hardware problem). The third came with 2.2 preloaded and it worked like a charm for two weeks then would not turn on. Took out the battery and cards and it tried to boot up but would not get to the home screen. It would just die and the two bottom keys would stay lit. I like the Galaxy but wondering if I should have went to the I-phone. Anyone else having these issues?
-frustrated.

Same problem here:

After updating Kies, it said that there is a new firmware for my Galaxy S.
But the update didn't work, and it said, that I had to remove my phone from the computer, take out the battery, turn back on and retry the update.

But I can't turn my phone back on, nor reset, nor anything.

There is just the picture of a phone and a "!" and a computer showing on the screen of my phone.

Please help! Thank you.

That happened to me recently.

I resolved it by flashing the rom using Odin.

With the phone off, you can get your phone into download mode by pressing the Volume down button and then press the power button.

You should get the android with the shovel.

Not sure if Kies will recognize your phone that way though.

Flashing the ROM with Odin should get your phone back.

Hey thanks for the answer. Should I press the buttons while being connected to my computer or not? (Either way Kies doesn't recognize my phone! )

Do it when the phone is not connected to your computer.

I would say that you are going to have to use Odin to flash your phone back to life.

Default Succesfull firmware recovery using Kies

Hi

Just before completing firmware upgrade with Kies to gingerbread, the screen of my Samsung Galaxy S turned blue and Kies went in to connecting mode, not finding the phone. After ten minutes, I concluded the firmware update had failed.
I disconnected the usb cable and the phone-connection-warning-signal-computer icon appeared.
I succeeded recovery of the firmware by:
1. Turning off the phone by holding down the power button until the screen turns off, and then immediately
2. push simultaniously volume down, start button (in the middle below the screen) and the power button, and thus bringing the phone in download mode again with the yellow picture of the android with shovel and text "downloading, do not turn off target!"
3. Because I had closed down Kies, I restarted Kies. If you don't close down Kies, restart might not be needed.
4. Reconnecting the usb cable, making instructions of Kies for emergency recovery of the firmware appear.
5. Click the button "Emergency recovery". In my case the firmware recovery was a succesfull update to the next version, Gingerbread.
