    The transform always seems to be a little slow turning on but today it just won't turn on at all. The phone seemed to be a little slower yesterday but nothing happened to it. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back and none of this has worked. Any advice? thanks

    If you plug the phone into the charger without turning it on does the "battery charging" screen come up?

    It just stays on the Samsung screen?
    Then there are 2 things you can do (Both will factory reset the phone):

    (Easiest Way)
    -Boot to Recovery (Phone off> Press Volume down, Power, and Voice button [Under Power] then release the buttons when its turns on
    -Scroll Down to Advance Options [Scroll With Volume Buttons]
    -Then press the menu button
    -Then click [Menu Button] on Wipe/Factory Reset
    -Then Press Home
    - When its done press back
    -Reboot Options
    -Reboot to System
    This should work most of the time, if it doesn't then then do this:

    -Download SWUpgrade, if you don't have it [Login] [You might need to make an account on SDX] [Reboot your PC when it's done]
    -Download download Vampirefo's Kernel [if you want root] [kernel_recovery.tar] or Stock Kernel [Unlimited free file storage and free file hosting]
    -Place the downloaded file in C:\Program Files\Samsung Electronics\SWUpgrade\Models\Binary (WARNING MAKE SURE NOTHING IS IN THIS FOLDER BESIDES THE FILE YOU DOWNLOADED)
    -Open SWUpgrade
    -Follow on screen instructions, make sure you have the driver for the phone.
