    My attain is stuck in bootloop and it wont let me do a factory reset. I get to the factory reset screen and it just shuts off and reboots again. This has been going on for more than seven hours. Help is much needed.

    Its not rooted, No I cannot get into download mode either. How do you flash the rom? I just used the phone for basic thing, like facebook, pandora, texting, phone calls. No extra downloads or anything.

    Flashing is the same as rooting. Go into dl mode, have oden and the tar file ur going to flash and load it in oden uncheck the partition box and hit start.

    U can also try flashing the update from metro which would upgrade ur firmware. That is easier since it has step by step instructions, which r quite simple since everything is done automatically.

    Yeah the easiest way is to just run the metropcs update tool from the samsung website and see if that fixes your problem. Also flashing is not the same as rooting. Flashing simply lets you overwrite system files or add things to the system while rooting gives you and other apps access to system files so they're similar but not the same. Oh and one thing to add when flashing with odin make sure you add the tar file under PDA.

    Anyone know how to repair the baseband on the Attain? Some dingleberry rooted the phone and wiped the efs folder. The baseband says unknown and the connection bars are replaced with a o w/slash. The airplane mode is on and will not turn off. I tried to unbrick the phone to no avail. It went into a bootloop. I got oput of that by doing a master reset and wiping the cache. I have an untouched Attain. Is there anyway to dump the radio and flash it to the screwed attain?
