    so i just got this phone a couple days ago and i decided to root it and get new firmware. so i rooted it just fine, got some apps for it, one of which was rom manager, and through that i did that clockwork mod but it didnt have this phone on there so i chose a random one, it downloaded it and i went install. it said i was going to shut off then reboot and that was cool, but it shut off and now it wont turn back on at all, ive tried recovery mode, download mode. you name it i most likely tried it and i dont know what to do, i cant jtag it and i dont have the money to send it off to get fixed. i have no idea what to do. any help would be great, i dont want to have to throw away a brand new phone just because of something this stupid

    You might be out of luck, but there may be some help in this thread over at the Prevail forum:

    Do not use ROM Manager

    As you've only had it a few days you should be able to return it (you kept the receipt?).

    i was trying to use odin to fix it but i cant get it into download mode

    but, yes i should still have the recept, bad thing is, im out of state and wont be back for a week. so im not too sure where its at. i read in the thread i could send it to samsung? you know if that would work, i dont really want to wait but its better than buying a new one or sending it off to a random person for them to fix.

    I tend to favor the path of least resistance. You shouldn't have a problem if you just return it with the receipt and keep it simple. Just tell them you rebooted your phone and it didn't work any more. I presume you got it at Walmart and you're telling the truth (to a point).

    Walmart Return Policy Exception:

    "Computers, camcorders, digital cameras, digital music players, e-tablets, e-readers, portable video players, GPS units, video game hardware, pre-paid cell phones, and post-paid cell phones must be returned within 15 days with a receipt."

    It looks like you have some time, so I'd try that first.

    That's if you just decide to return it. If it's defective (we'll ignore the cause of the defect here, since Walmart is probably not going to be able to determine that), it's covered by the warranty, not the return policy. And, since you can buy Walmart's extended warranty within 30 days of the purchase, the original warranty has to be at least that long. (At very worst, if it's day 30 since the purchase, you can purchase the extended warranty online, then bring the phone in any time during the following 11 months.)

    OK . (Dont worry 2 MUCH) BUT lets talk facts
    1st. U used RomManager (Does not work on this PHONE)
    2nd U bricked your phone
    3rd by rooting your phone u voided your any warranty u have on it.
    4th wal-mart might take it back for return if your lucky.
    5th call S. Talk tell them your new phone just shut off and wont power. DO NOT TELL THEM U ROOTED AND USED A 3RD PARTY Mod.(it will not help u ) They will walk u tru download mode with and with out battery,pluged in and not pluged in., they will give up and send you a bag to put your old phone and charger in and in 7 to 14 days you will have a brand new refurbished phone.
    sorry for the bluntness but I speak from 1st hand experience on this. I did the same exact thing 3 days after I got my 1st phone.
    So don't worry about lost money,or the phone
    You can get it replaced one way or the other

    Odin stock zip is what you need. Go to my posts and you will find the thread. It installs it back to when you bought it.
