    guys, i think my gt-i7500 is bricked. i downloaded the 1.6 firmware(.tar) along with ODIN.. set up the downloading mode and used ODIN to flash it to 1.6. ODIN showed PASS in the window but the phone refuses to boot up. It remains frozen with the SAMSUNG sign. Recovery mode is not working either. any way to help me out here?. much appreciated.

    if it gets to the samsung screen your phone is not bricked.
    when you say it cannot get to recovery what exactly do you mean.
    when you hold down voldown + dial + power what happens?

    im guessing you took the risk of flashing the device without wiping the data first.
    if you get a traingle on the screen when going to recovery, press the home button and it should wipe/restore

    If you think your phone is bricked, just remove the battery and then follow what Rastaman said.

    hmm the home button should make it do a restore (oval button on the right hand side)

    the only other way "i think" you can wipe the userdata so the device boots is by fastboot.

    fastboot erase userdata

    please be aware i have not tested this but userdata is what stores all userbased settings and is one of the area's that gets formated when you do a wipe
    the other area is cache
