    So I was at work today browsing the market and suddenly my screen went black. I tried pressing the power button to wake it but got nothing. After a few minutes of waiting, I pulled the battery. The phone will boot past the "Samsung", "Galaxy S" and "Verizon" screens, but gets stuck on the Verizon one for a while then goes dark. The soft buttons on the bottom stay lit. That's it. I've probably done it 10-15 times through the evening now, and I get no farther.

    I wasn't doing anything particularly taxing at the time, and I haven't added anything recently that would have caused a change in any system files. I'm running voodoo v.2 with the OCLF (because it won't uninstall) and all has been well for almost six weeks now... then all of a sudden this happens.

    I'm thinking maybe I need to learn exactly what Odin is and how to use it, but any help that you can give would be great.

    Thanks!

    voodoo on top of oclf? wow hadnt that one :eek:

    havent u used odin before? you d have had to i believe to have clockwork recovery install stuff anyway.

    assuming thats the case you need to remove voodoo.

    [How to] Completely Remove Voodoo Lagfix - xda-developers

    you ll need the android sdk/adb installed on your computer to do this. no way around it.

    then you may need to odin back to stock to remove oclf (ive never had to remove oclf so im not 100% on this)

    make sure you have all the odin files first. and never CLICK THE PHONE BUTTON IN ODIN OR DISCONNECT WHILE IN ODIN

    Nitsuj17, thanks for the reply. I stopped by Verizon while out to see if they could tell me if this was a problem that I had caused or not. Either way, they decided to replace it. I'll have to re-root and re-de-bing, but oh well.

    Thanks for the help!

    well at least you're squared away now. the consensus atm it to say away from voodoo kernels anyway, so when you go to tinker with the new one, most of the problems you experienced will be non-starters :)
