    Hey,

    So I believe I have 'bricked' my Bell Samsung Galaxy S (unlocked and using on Telus).

    I was using the GST (Galaxy S Tweaker) app, so I rooted with that, applied a lag fix, then tried the home screen switch mod (that changes the home screen back to the stock android slide to unlock one) But now my phone won't boot past the white 'Galaxy S, Samsung' writing. *NOTE* I can successfully boot into recovery mode, and I have attempted to reset/delete all data, and clear cache from the list of items, all to no avail.

    Now, it is my understanding that using ODIN I may be able to revive my phone by flashing back to a 2.1 ROM..?

    Only problem is that I have no idea how to use ODIN, or to flash a ROM, or where to find the files necessary.

    Can someone please help me?
    Thanks,
    Dylan

    Make sure the roms you find are for the Bell Galaxy S. The international I9000 roms are not compatible with the Bell phone.
