    Had this phone for 3 months and now the phone hangs when booting up, it sits at the Samsung screen for hours. I have tried pulling the battery and sim but it still will not boot up. Any ideas?

    Too vague my friend. Have you ever rooted or modded your phone at all?
    What did you last do with your phone?
    Can you boot into recovery mode? (Phone off - Volume down, voice button, power button at the same time)

    The phone has never been rooted or modded, recovery mode does the same thing, starts up and hangs with with Samsung logo. The phone was acting up before, very slow in response, so it was booted normally, then this happened. Sorry so vauge but there isn't much too this besides not just starting all the way up.

    Mmmm... Well... You want to do things a little more complex or take it to Sprint for a new phone? Ill give you easy directions on what to do if you won't want to take it to Sprint.

    Looks pretty straight forward, what exactly will this do to the phone?

    For what ever reason it hangs on the step when downloading, and the USB device goes through the recognizing of the device and looks good, then it fails saying windows has a problem. And the step one never completes. I downloaded the driver from Samsung
    and installed it but the same problem. One thing to note I have the driver from my Epic installed here too and when I installed the Transform USB driver it found the directory was already there and will install over it.

    OK after rebooting the PC the driver is now recognized and I got past step 1 in the SWUpgrade where you plug the USB cable in and when I click next it says the device drivers are now installed and to ? unplug the cable but the screen on the phone stays in the Downloading screen. I unplug the cable and the SWUpgrade starts all over from the beginning, like nothing really happened. When I updated my Epic I did the easy way, placed the Froyo update in the root of the SDcard then did the boot in recovery mode and it worked great.

    Um.... I'm not sure what to tell you, since I don't know any reason for SWUpgrade to not work...

    what your phone was turning would it go past the samsung screen with the loading bar? Because my phone did that yesterday and i took to to sprint and they gave me a new phone

    It would get past the progress bar screen, then the animation, then it would hang on the next screen with Samsung. I wonder if this has something to do with the update to the phone. After letting it run for over a day in this state the phone somehow magically started up.

    I've done it 4-5 times, but now I do it as a habit any time I wanna test a different kernel. Makes it easier to trouble shoot.
