    reboot into recovery mode and press menu. then re-try to flash your phone.

    If you mail it to me I'll "attempt" to fix it. I can not guarantee you didn't brick it. PM me if you want and I'll give you my addie.

    Edit: I can cover shipping back to you (I work for a shipping company) and won't charge. ;)

    No worries. All I need is the phone & the sd card if you want anything special done. I have cords & chargers so no worries about anything else. PM sent.

    I encountered this exact problem myself... and still haven't found a fix for it, unfortunately. Even share the 5% thing, bizarre.

    Good luck, corolla!

    Aye, I definitely hope you're able to figure out a way to properly flash corolla's, j0hnh0lmes. Thanks for the offer, but I'm still fiddling with mine off and on as a hobby - it's not my main phone or anything. Do post back on your progress, though! :D

    Amazing, good job! Inquiring minds want to know: anything special required, or was it just that easy? :eek:

    Well it wasn't a usual flash job if that's what your asking. It took me about 30 min to get it working again.

    If you want me to fix yours just shoot me a PM.

    FriedBunny, your phone has also been fixed. You can usually get a new screen (digitizer) on ebay for around $20.

    That's amazing, frankly - thanks! Indeed, I've been eying a new digitizer for a while and now you've given me a reason to actually invest in one.

    So how do we avoid this happening to our phones again in the future? It appears I missed something in the Odin flashing, but I've no idea what... :thinking:

    Well, honestly you & corolla90 did something totally different than the other. I think his was just a cable issue. It could be the same for both, just became a problem @ different times of the flashing. It's hard to say without looking @ the file system which I didn't really have time to look @ due to my brother being a dumb ass (long story, he lives several states away).


    Tracking # has been Pm'd.



    Anyone else need help with their phone while I'm on a roll?
