    Hi everyone !

    I hope someone here can help me out.

    Device : i9000 from Bell, running a 2.2 roms (flashed)

    After powering off and on the device, I got a black screen + glowing button.
    I tried flashing again with 512.pit, still didn't fix this, I've tried over 50 combinations of pit and pda files, the phone doesn't want to respond!
    In Odin, everything seems fine though, it says suceeded.

    After hours of research, I found out that my internal SD card might be messed up, so I tried and followed this guide #7 :
    SOLVED: messed up partitions on internal storage - CyanogenMod Forum - Page 2

    ADB doesn't reconize my device:mad:
    Anyone know a solution?

    Same happened to me while I was trying to flash something new. I went to recovery mode and formatted my internal SD card. It seemed phone was installing a corrupt update.zip or something like that, that thing was on my phone but there were no way to erase it. So I formatted and flashed again. This time it was working.
    I think it's worth to try?

    I will not flash ROMs for a while :)

    Same thing happened to me and I cannot get into recovery mode, nothing, dead as a post after the splash screen.

    All in all just another brick in the wall.......................................

    What do I do now?

    You will need to reflash your firmware.

    Please READ!!!
    I said flashing again doesn't fix this issue, I even bricked my phone after trying an AT&T rom( stupid me ), I unbricked it with a homemade jig.

    I'm following this tutorial
    [Tuto] FROYO (I9000XWJPA) pour Galaxy S : Installation, root et lagfix | TUNANDROID.com
    It still doesn't help, it boots directly on clockwordmod, and if I follow a simple guide to get back 2.1 official rom from, screen goes black+ glowing button.

    This still doesn't work on a phone that the three button recovery does not work on though, if you can't get into download mode you are screwed it would seem. :confused::confused::confused:

    is the phone recognized by your pc when connected to your computer? if yes, youre good. just use ADB to get your phone in download mode. same thing happened to me too. remember you should have all samsung drivers installed before testing to see if your computer recognize the phone or not. most likely it will. mail me if any questions shaahin.flamenco@gmail.com

    I just got the same problem. I have updated to Froyo 2.2 2 days ago.
    A day later it turned off by itself for no reason.
    On the second day (today) i used the phone earlier and turned it off.
    My phone is not rooted, has never been flashed or unlocked. Did nothing special to it.
    When I turned it back on it could not boot pass the animated screen.
    After several tries to reebot and fiddling with the volume buttons I got the yellow triangular panel with the Android handling a shovel (like a road panel oictogram meaning "Android at work" and the message "Dowmloading... Do not turn off Target!!!". What to do for here ... if I ever get it back.
    Note that I am in the search for a phone plan so I do not have a phone connection rigth now.

    Happened to TWO of my phones, Flash a stock firmware for your area and bring it to your carrier and say you were updating via kies and it shut down! Works everytime
