Galaxy S Problems - Need Help Fast!
Ok so I have been looking around for two days now and have not been able to find an answer to my problem. I've even searched and tried everything on these forums so please don't ask me to google or use the forums search.
I've got a Bell Canada Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000M, it was working fine a few days ago and I picked it up to check my messages and it was frozen. After a few minutes I pulled the battery and went to restart the phone.
The phone will now only show the Samsung Galaxy S white logo and simply restart itself and play that logo over and over. If the phone is plugged into the wall it will show the battle charge logo briefly and than restart to the logo. It will go no further than this point.
I have tried to do a factory reset via Home + Power + Vol Up but it seems to reset itself before it will actually load into that menu. Home + Power + Vol Dn will bring me to the download screen which is stable and will not reset the phone.
This is where it gets strange, I have tried Odin and a 100% stock flash on the phone with no luck the phone just sits resetting. After a download of DarkyROM it will actually load the white Galaxy S logo along with the DarkyROM logo and simply go back to resetting.
So the phone is clearly in some state of a working order able to download and accept ROMs but just keeps restarting itself after the white initial Galaxy S logo.
Any and all help would be appreciated! I hope I have explained this problem well enough, maybe it is in need of being brought to a shop to be fixed? Just happens that the warranty expired last week, almost seems coincidental.
EDIT: Tried to contact Samsung who told me to go to my carrier and have them deal with it. Carrier says their is nothing they can do and to contact Samsung. At this point I will never buy another Samsung product if this is how they roll.
