Default Soft Bricked Ultra

Sorry if this is a repost. In a nutshell. I rooted my Samsung Transform Ultra. It was awesome. I heard about Carrier IQ and didn't like that. I downloaded the Logging Test App. It found Carrier IQ on my phone. I purchased the Pro version of the Logging Test App to remove CIQ....and like an idiot I used it. I didn't see where Interdeph posted not to use CIQ remover until it's to late. Now I can't get passed the Samsung Logo. I think I'm soft bricked. I need detailed help, please point me in the right direction. I've tried recovery mode and it says that it can't find an "misc" also.

From power off
Hold down volume up key (continue to hold through entier process)
After two second pess and hold power button.
Once the first samsung screen comes on then let go of only the power button
You may let go of volume up key after you enter the recovery menu

No, unfortunately I did not perform a backup. I have access to a Samsung Prevail from Boost Mobile. Would it be possible to back that up and use it to salvage my phone? Just a thought.

Aww man. Alright. I tried downloading Odin3 and using it. I had no idea Odin was phone specific. I apparently need to research more.

Any time really, I'll be gone from 4-6 today, but any time after or before. You'll need teamviewer installed on your computer.

If you are having issues getting into recovery mode you could try to write this script. Save it in the same folder as where you have adb extracted. hopefully you have windows bc i don't have a linux machine running and haven't tried one for linux.

Open up notepad and input this:

@echo off
adb.exe reboot recovery
pause
adb.exe kill-server
goto:eof


Save the file as *something*.bat (fill in the name how you like, I did reboot recovery.bat) and make sure you change the save as type to all documents. Plug in your phone and run it. I found this is much easier than trying to use the buttons to get there. hopefully this helps
