    Hi,
    I tried to return a Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500 to the factory settings but it simply will not reboot now. It gets stuck at HD ANDROID and blinks slowly. Can I get help to solve this?
    I left it on the whole night but nothing happened.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    Sounds like what you are experiencing is a condition called "soft-bricking" where you phone is rendered as useful as a brick. The soft part generally means it's reversible. I found some information that might prove helpful here. However, I have no first-hand experience with this phone so it would be best to check in with the Samsung Galaxy forums here. I am not sure which phone most closely corresponds to the I7500, but they'll be able to help you out with that too. Good Luck.
