    Here's what I did

    2.1 Stock -> Leaked 2.2 Froyo -> 2.1 ODIN Restore

    2.1 ODIN -> 2.2 Cog latest beta


    Cog worked fine but I hated it so I:

    ODIN'd back to 2.1, then during the ODIN to 2.2 Froyo the ODIN program froze and I got the


    phone---!!---PC


    logo. could not get into download mode to save my life. Probably needed that damn jig but I just returned it to ATT and said it "failed under an OTA update" which happened to a ton of people.

    I'd only had the phone a week. I hate to be dishonest but shit I didn't have time to wait around on forum guys to tell me to hold down volume buttons that didn't work.

    I spent 3 hours trying to unbrick it, or at least recovery/download mode but always came up empty with the phone---!!--PC


    Is there anything I could've done besides the jig besides returning the phone. The guy didn't ask if I had rooted it or anything and I figure since I was currently at ODIN 2.1 and was trying to go to Froyo and it froze before it did anything (ODIN froze on the first thing it says after you click start) I'll be ok


    Thoughts? I brought the new one home, put back on leaked 2.2 Froyo and decided I'll never update again because 2.2 is really nice

    You pull the battery/sim card, hold the up/down buttons, put the battery back and connect the usb cable, power up and you will enter download mode and flash back to stock, i got that phone <> pc screen a couple days ago and this worked.

    I tried for 3 hours googling various keywords

    Putting the battery in after holding the keys or while holding the keys

    I think I had that bug Designgears talks about when you can't boot into recovery or download mode

    At any point, I'm sticking with the Froyo leak and not touching other, weekly updated ROMs
