    As a user called chismay said that it would be helpful for some of you users to know how to unbrick your phone, i decided to post how i unbricked my phone..
    Remove your battery(not necessary sim card and sd card, but you can always do it for safety)hold the vol-, home and power button and put the battery back in while doing this after a few seconds you will see the downloading screen and then flash your firmware...
    And as pujitjuneja said its actually easy ;)

    Never user rom manager. This would brick Samsung ACE. Even the above method will not work. The only option is to send it to the service center.

    The above method will work with most of the bricked phones.
    If your phone was bricked when rooted and all, the service center isn't going to do anything for free, so the best option is to use this, and then, if the phone is still not unbricked, you can just send it to samsung service center, and pay for it if you have to or just fake a problem.
    And no one talked about ROM manager, don't go off topic.
    Please test a method and only then comment about it.

    I was setting up adfree app and the phone went off and now nothing happens, wont turn on, screen nothing.

    Tried this method, got as far as odin detecting phone, then it just stops at settin up connection on odin and does nothing for ages.

    I had used odin to upgrade to 2.3.3 and was working fine.

    Anybody know anything about this issue?

    Do one thing, just try to boot it into recovery, and then open kies.. and try emergency recovery.. if even that doesn't work, then you'll have to send it to samsung service (sorry :( )

    I've tried recovery, download all modes. I'm gonna go back to orange shop and get a replacement, they've said they'll do that for me. I dont really know if anything happens when going into these modes as nothing comes up on the screen.

    Slightly off topic. I DID manage to get flash player 10.3 to install on gingerbread, which apparently you cannot do so i dunno how that happened lol!!

    i had that bug when odin just got stuck at "setting up connection" when i tried to flash villainrom, i just removed it and did it again but i ticked debug mode or sth like this and it worked, so you might wanna try that out too
  14. russbelluk

    russbelluk Member

    It wud usually just say application not installed, but it said application installed, didnt try it on any flash websites as couldnt think of any heavy flash web sites off top of my head.

    Anyway back on topic. The odin recovery method did work sort of the 1st time i tried it. I pressed in vol -,home then on and put battery in then. PC did start installing drivers and the com port was detected on odin, but it just got to stage of setting up the connection to phone. Dont matter now as they'll give me a new phone anyways!!

    Hi all, i like to ask how to move all the app in internal memory to external?
  22. monzonjessie

    monzonjessie Member

    you cannot move it unless if you rooted your phone and download apps2sd, move2sd and rom manager and set it up to super user, but rom manager is risky it will brick your phone,,, it happens to me and i just send it to samsung service center
