    Can you get into Downloading Mode? Try holding the Down Volume k` ey, Home key & Power button together - if it works you'll get a yellow "Downloading" on the screen.

    Remove the SD card, SIM & battery, then plug your phone into your computer & try Download Mode again mate.

    Have you tried re-inserting your battery after holding the buttons down? I'm pretty sure that you're going through exactly the same as I did the first time I flashed mine with Odin, so there IS hope!

    yea tried that too, using Odin i can recognize the device and set everything up to flash the phone, the timer starts and carries on going but nothing actually happens

    Sounds really familiar. If I could get my hands on it, maybe I could sort it. You're not near Hertfordshire by any chance are you?

    If you get to that point mate, just send it to my house! Nothing to lose but the price of postage & I love a challenge.
