    After many successful months of having a rooted Exhibit, it starting showing weird behavior and symptoms. First, it was rebooting on it's own, then the random crashes, and eventually leading to the bricked phone.

    I tried Odin and a few other methods on the internet, but with no luck.

    The phone is stuck on the "Firmware upgrade fail" screen and is looping on and off.

    I have no hope for this phone, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    I also forgot to mention, due to the constant boot looping, whenever the connected to the computer, the connection is on and off, and cannot do anything about it.

    If you have an app taking up USB storage (Like Madden NFL 12 For Android for example) & have an SD Card mounted in your phone, try turning the phone off & physically removing the card from the phone. That should at least stop the looping (In fact, try removing the SD Card regardless of what you have as this will help)

    As far as checking for Firmware upgrades, is this something the phone is doing on its own or is it something you initiated ?? Perhaps you could elaborate?

    If none of these help, then you either didn't follow any of the instructions above and/or have other issues which might require the phone to be sent in for servicing (Don't mention you tried to root the phone unless you wanna PAY for the repairs)

    Cheers :D
