    If your phone is detected by Odin --it will show something like COM 5, in yellow background at the top side-- then you can conitnue flashing your device with gingerbread firmware.

    Try this .... It might work or maybe not --it is not tested-- But don't worry since your device is already bricked it can't get worst....

    After installing drivers for usb. You can download and install the drivers from here Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: SAMSUNG_USB.rar . Set up everything in Odin for flashing a new firmware for your device.
    Now Go to Download mode --if you are unable skip and follow the next step-- and connect your phone to your pc. If Odin detects it (if you see COM 5 --or similar-- on yellow background ) then press Start to begin installing your firmware.

    If it doesn't detect then remove the battery and other cards (sim and sd) from your device. COnnect it to pc. Hold down Volume Down + Home + Power Buttons and then at the same time insert the battery.

    Now you should be on download mode and your phone should be detected by Odin. Hit start and flash the new firmware. :)

    I tried this:
    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

    But after I put in the battery, nothing happens..any suggestions?

    If there are people still stuck with there phone and have not found a solution nor has the tutorial worked for them, if you are okay with it you can post your phone to me and i will fix it and send it back to you free of charge.

    I'm in the UK, London, and there is no garantee i will be able to fix it, either way i will send your phone back free

    Since your bricked phone is now considered junk/useless/brick i don't think it would be an issue of trust posting it to me as i'm doing it for free. That is the only other help i can give other than the tutorial

    my windows doesnt recognize my phone, shit !!!, btw i bricked my phone using that GODDAMN ROM MANAGER selected "Reboot from recovery mode" and then after that the device turned off. It would not turn on anymore! Can't enter download mode and recovery mode, screen is off, no backlights. Odin would not detect it too. Please help.

    Actually I try to update my froyo 2.2.1 to Gingerbread 2.3.4 through Odin. Everything goes fine, but when Odin says RESET . at that moment my cell phone goes blank .. dead or u can say bricked. i removed the battery sd card then tried to Switch On the phone but nothing works. When i try to connect it via pc .. only odin detects it by some port i didnt remember. Then i followed the steps, and it works for me, in the very first attempt :) thats the story :)

    I tried this tutorial but unfortunatelly is not working for me. I got port from the ODIN but it gave me the "setup connection" or the "wrong usb port" messages. I pressed the start button as the yellow box appeared.

    I bricked my phone in the CWM so this process is maybe not good for me.

    Thanks for the tutorial,
    regards, Attila

    I tried this, but Im using Windows XP.
    None of the pictures from "Installing drivers" appear so its hard to know...

    It didn't worked, atleast for me in Windows XP.
    Just wonderinf if I did something bad...
    Can this fix black screen, no boot, no nothing on my galaxy mini?
    Computer and Odin detects it, but when i click on "start" in odin, it stays at setup connection, and my phone can't get into Dowload Mode.

    Seems like your tutorial fixed this... guess not :(

    hi, i bricked my s5570 when i installed a wrong version of clockworkmod on my device. the mod installed okay but the next moment my phone just went black without any tone or vibration. i tried volumedown+home+power & home+power but to no avail. so googled my query & come to yr tutorial. i followed it word to word but my prob is that neither does my phone shows up in the devices & printers altogether nor does odin detects it. so i uninstalled the drivers & reboot, connected my phone thru usb but no sign of it anywhere in my pc & i even checked thru device manager but no good, then i reinstalled drivers using kies, reboot, took off my battery, sim, sdcard then pressed voldwn+home+pwr buttons all at once & reinserted the battery & kept holding for nearly a minute but nothing happened. is there any chance i can still unbrick it.

    note - only yesterday did i upgraded my phone to gingerbread 2.3.6 thru kies. also while i was installing the clockworkmod i was actually trying to back up current rom & since rom manager was unable to recognize my device, i just chose the very first listing that rom manager displayed. while the clockworkmod was installing thru wifi, my phone was also connected thru usb.
    anyways i wud b extremely grateful if u cud provide me with a solution. thanx a lot.
