    What was the last thing that you did?

    Have you tried pulling the battery and powering it back on?

    Yes tried 10 times to do that. I was trying to go back do ECLAIR DI18 and Odin failed.Before i tried odin with the correct tar files I downloaded the older samsung drivers.

    Also tried to factory wipe it and go into recovery with the same result

    Go back into download mode after pulling the battery and try Odin again. Make sure that you have the files in the correct places.

    The computer doesn't even recognize the phone. This is the main problem. Odin doesnt recognize it either.

    Should i try to download the new samsung drivers again?

    Yes, try the drivers again.

    If you have another cable, it might be worthwhile to try it as well.

    Its still not working. No newer drivers than the ones that a certain thread said to download to get it back to Eclair. I'm pratically giving up at this point

    Which USB driver version did you install?

    Have you rebooted your computer after installing the drivers?

    Have you tried ALL your USB ports?
