[TUTORIAL] Unbrick Mini S5570 (Bricked With Black Screen)

    First off I want to say I cannot guarantee this will work for you nor can I take any responsibility for damages done to your phone following this tutorial. This is my first tutorial on the forum and i would really appreciate as much feedback as possible if this worked for you and even if it did not and why.

    This tutorial is to unbrick your Galaxy mini, after a bad flash where you are getting errors in odin such as “setup connection” or “Serial port” problems. I have bricked my phone 3 times with a bad firmware leaving a blank screen, unable to get into download mode, and every time I’ve received a different response with the method.

    Therefore this will require alot of your time in order to make it work. And i apologize in advance for any mistake, it took me all day to do this 3 times! And all 3 times resulted in success! Anyways let’s do tha’ business
    ---------------------------------
    The main problem why you receive the error “setup connection” is because of a bad driver somewhere, so let’s start from scratch to ensure we get results.
    Start by uninstalling the “Samsung USB” drivers and reboot your computer

    Plug in the phone with battery inserted, windows may or may not play a sound.
    After you plug in the phone, under “devices and printer” you will see “Samsung CDMA Technologies” with an error mark next to it.

    This means windows has detected your phone, if you unplug the phone it will disappear, confirming it is no longer connected to windows.
    Now with the phone still plugged in, install the drivers through Kies

    After installing the drivers windows balloon will appear, click it to see more info and you should see this (Keep Kies running through out)

    After that has finished installing you should then see this

    Confirm all is installed by going back to device and printers and there should no longer be an error sign next to the Samsung CDMA device

    After that you may or may not get an error message from Kies

    Click okay, unplug the phone and close Kies, reboot your computer.
    After starting up windows, plug the phone back in, windows will play a device connect sound.
    Now open odin, odin will detect your phone even though you are not in download mode and should say
    <1> Added!!!
    <1>Detected!!!

    At this point follow these steps
    Step 1 – Prepare Odin with a WORKING firmware and make sure everything is ready to go

    Step 2 – Remove battery, SIM card and SD card, and connect your phone if it isn&#8217;t already connected

    Step 3 – Hold Volume down + Power + Home button at the same time

    Step 4 – Insert the battery while holding down the above buttons

    (Windows will detect your phone and start to install/configure the same drivers again wait for the drivers to finish installing)

    (Odin is the critical driver that has not been configured so far)

    (Drivers now finished installed and odin will display the yellow COM port in the next box)

    Click start and wait for any error message All should be well now and your phone should flash back to a working firmware, but if that is not the case and you still receive &#8220;setup connection&#8221; error continue...

    ------------------

    Extended tutorial...

    [​IMG]

    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    If this is what you got or "Setup connection" continue...

    If that did not work for you, unplug your phone remove the battery and reboot your computer
    Once windows has started
    &#8226; Click start then right click &#8220;Computer&#8221; then go to &#8220;manage&#8221;, when the manager window open click &#8220;device manager&#8221;
    &#8226; Expand the drop down menu for USB (Universal Serial bus controllers)
    &#8226; Right click and uninstall &#8220;Samsung USB composite device&#8221;
    &#8226; Restart your computer
    After starting up windows connect back the phone and more drivers should install
    Now repeat step 1 to 4
    It will most likely result in the same error and if so, open Kies, while Odin is still running and install the drivers again, this window may appear
    I have no idea what this means there is a driver bug somewhere here between Kies and Odin

    [​IMG]

    After installing the drivers, close odin, and remove the battery, follow step 1 to 4 again
    If it fails, close kies and close odin, remove the phone battery
    Now open odin load the files and prepare to flash,
    And repeat step 1 to 4
    A driver window will pops up showing Odin being installed

    [​IMG]

    As soon as the yellow box appears in Odin hit the start button!
    You will then see this, in the driver box, and as you can see Odin started installing the firmware.
    In order for this to work, you may have to follow the extended part of the tutorial several times

    If this is what you see instead though, it's too late and you must go back to step 1

    This tutorial is very complicated and I have tried to explain it as best as I can, hope it help some of you guys.

    PS. If you have any USB driver problems or windows deleted problems with device managers or drivers in general causing errors you must fix these problems first or use a different computer, if the drivers wont install properly you cannot do it on that computer.


    EDIT: Gingerbread 2.3.4 firmware, I can confirm this works

    Great Post...
    Now - All I need is to charge my battery and test it.
    How the F*#@ i do that with out my phone and without a charger?
    (...and without ordering from ebay $2 charger and wait 40 days till its arrive...)
    :-(

    I cannot confirm this, but during the making of the tutorial i think it's possible that your pc can charge the battery while the screen is off, if windows recognize it... i think it will charge while windows try to access to the sd card.

    Or your other option is to buy another battery, you don't need to get a charger as a battery will come charged at around 50% It's a chance to get an upgraded battery

    from my one is also on black screen with the ability to enter download mode and armv9 mode with black screen but stuck on setup connection....

    The problem here is... its all black screen so when i simply just plugin the mobile to the pc with battery on windows does not detects anything.. but when i go to download mode n then plug it then windows detects the phone and install these drivers...

    so after that when i make the odin ready n try to enter the download mode again... no drivers such as odin driver is installed n thus stuck on setup connection againn...

    help me out here.. i flashed wrong clockworkmod n got stuck here in this black screen..

    Maybe you dont have the samsung mobile drivers installed, its very strange anyway..
  10. suicidallooney

    suicidallooney Well-Known Member

    yeah it happens because of drivers, the exact same thing happened to me... after flashing to a bad firmware the errors start, It took me many hours to do this but it works. Nothing is wrong with the motherboard for you phone, that is just some BS they tell you. There is a hidden partition on the phone for recovery purposes...

    Keep trying it couple of times... it never works first time for me, and possibly try uninstalling the drivers while your phone is plugged in but not in download mode then restart and reinstall the drivers keeping your phone plugged in the whole time.

    It's a good idea to check your device manager for any driver errors you may have in windows

    I got my phone replaced by the store :) but there is tutorial where it says the phone can be forced to download mode via connecting three 100k ohm resistors connected in series. The ends of the resistors should touch pins 3 and 5 of the USB connector. The two pins nearest the headphone jack.

    I did not get to try it... I mistakenly bought 100 ohm resistors instead of 100k ohms.
    here is a youtube link. Samsung Galaxy S (How-To Unbrick *USB JIG Method*) - YouTube

    hope this helps!

    Couldnt manage the phone to be detected on the PC by just plugging in... With all the restrained anger and frustration i finally gave the phone to a local repair store here in BANGLADESH as because i dont have any warranty.. SO what they did is they repaired the boot of the phone by writing new boot to n then it entered downloading mode also showing on the screen too... after that they flashed new rom with ODIN...

    For this service it cost me 2000 taka which means $25

    Now the phone is running smooth and fine :)
