    u tried 3 button recovery? hold home + vol up + power buttons all at the same time and keep them pressed until the galaxy s bootscreen appears then let go. use the volume buttons to navigate down to "wipe default/factory reset"... once that's done, reboot and see where that leaves u...

    if u can't get the 3 button recovery to work i'm not sure wot else u could try...good luck!

    women ey!

    ignore those options that appear... best thing to do is turn ur fone off... wait 30 seconds then do the 3 button combo... u may need to keep them pressed for about 10-15 seconds...make sure all of them are pressed tho until the screen appears otherwise it wont work.
