    I installed The ics dark cappy and i went to revert and i mistakenly selected restore and the phone is in continually reboots into att and and black and att:(
    i read that i should need a jig as any button combination didnt work but i looked and saw that when i hook up Black berry charger it works so can anyone explain:thinking:

    That or

    or any way to make a simpler jig as i live in Bangladesh and find this Phone is impossible so i doubt that a jig is find-able
    So can some one help me out.

    To go back in download mode without the 3 button combo do this

    1-Remove battery
    2-Plug-in usb cable to the phone
    3-Plug usb cable to pc
    4-Hold both volume buttons (keep holding)
    5-Re insert battery

    This should solve the issue. If that does not work (after a couple of tries) then you will need a jig to get back into download mode to Odin back to a stock rom.

    It is possible to make your own jig if you can get the resistors. There's a bunch of YouTube videos that show you how to do it, but this one is probably the most thorough.
    Samsung Galaxy S (How-To Unbrick *USB JIG Method*) - YouTube

    I had trouble getting it to work because it's hard to touch the usb mini connector leads when you're just holding the resistors. If you have an extra usb mini cable that you can spare, and you know how to solder, you should look for a video/guide that will show you how to identify the pins and where to put the resistors (I know I came across a few when I had this issue).

    I finally got my Cappy into download mode by doing this:

    1. Remove battery (I pulled sim and sd as well)
    2. Plugged usb cable into pc
    3. Put battery back into phone
    4. Held down just the volume down button
    5. Plugged usb cable into phone

    Everything I've found online says you're supposed to hold both volume buttons to get into download mode. I don't know why volume down worked. Maybe it was just a fluke. I had been trying to get into download mode for hours, and didn't really care at that point.
