    I have attempted to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.2.1 with no luck.

    I am using odin3.

    I needed to apply the three button fix to get to the download menu.
    I did this successfully.

    I downloaded what i thought was the correct .pit file and firmware version.
    My phone does not boot now.

    I am able to get into the download menu and I tried a different one, but it still does not work.

    I am looking for guidance as to what I should be flashing on my phone.

    Samsung Galaxy S
    US Cellular

    Also, what is the difference between .pit file 512, 513 and 803?

    I was panicking a bit before. I figured out what the pit files are for.
    I was using the I9000TUBJPD file from samfirmware.com.

    Odin says it was a success.
    My phone now boots to recovery automatically and says:
    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    format internal sd-card


    update media, please wait
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    (No such file or directory)
    E:copy_dbdata_media:can't mount SDCARD:

    your storage not prepared yet, please use UI me
    nu for format and reboot actions.
    copy default media content failed.


    I am able to volume down the list; however, I am not able to volume up the list or select with the power button.

    I have tried to flash 2.1 back onto the phone.
    Odin said it was a success.

    I used I9000UGJH2 from samfirmwares.com

    It has put my phone into a shutdown cycle now.
    It flashes a white screen and Galaxy S GT-I9000M and turns off.

    So after doing some extra digging and looking for the most reliable firmware for my model, it appears I do not have the I9000 and it is the fascinate.

    With this information, I have been trying to flash my phone with incorrect firmware.
    Tomorrow I will begin looking for the most reliable firmware for the mesmerize fascinate.

    Advise would be appreciated.
    I don't think I did bricked it, but lets hope I can recover it.

    As long as you can put it in download mode, you have not bricked it.

    There still may be hope! If not... making a JIG is not too difficult nor expensive :D
