Angry SGS won't do anything[Explained in thread]

Okey ive rooted my sgs 1week ago and yesterday is shut itself off and went to the boot screen. ive spend exactly 24hours trying to figure it out before posting here. the things that wont work and i've tried so far:

1- download mode (the volume down + home button + power button or volume up + down) ive tried every method there is.
2- Odin3 v1.70 ( can't use it because I can't go into download mode)
3- everything with the usb cable.

basiclly the SGS will only go to the boot screen & when usb plugged in it will only show the green battery on the phone screen.

I would like some advice. everything new would be good
(but please dont give me any info about how to jigg it, im not that handy)

Jig is a usb cable pin with 301k resistors

If you can't get into download mode, jig is your only option. You can buy one for scrap on ebay.
