    I hope you guys can help me out. My phone all of a sudden stopped working. After placing a call it froze and rebooted. Now it boot loops at the samsung logo. When trying to enter recovery it just says "recovery mode..." after a few seconds it times out and reboots back to the samsung logo.

    I have tried to 0din a firmware, it uploads fine, reboots, goes into "recovery mode..." times out and reboots.

    Does anyone have any idea if there is a way to "format" the phone through fastboot or some way I can recover it? I CAN access fastboot mode.

    Well I figured out how to wipe through fastboot using:

    fastboot erase system
    fastboot erase boot
    fastboot erase system -w

    Then I flashed a recovery image using:
    fastboot flash recovery xxxx.img

    Still stuck in samsung logo and "recovery mode...." loop. Looks like the phone is bricked. Time to do what I should of done with this phone a long time ago, it's going up on ebay.

    Well I have solved the issue.

    It seemed odd that the phone would brick out of nowhere but still be able to send fastboot commands correctly. I read about someone having the boot loop and got the OS running but had symptoms of a stuck key (he sent it back under warranty).

    Having read that, I took the phone apart, re-seated all the keys and blew compressed air to clear anything that may have been trapped in there.

    I tried to boot into recovery and it showed "recovery mode..." followed by the samsung logo, then went right into recovery. Success.
