    I tried flashing my Galaxy S, but when i turned it on, it stayed on the boot menu for 10 minutes and nothing happened, so i had to remove the battery. I tired putting it in download mode and it didnt work eiter. When i plugged in the usb, it showed the charging icon with the loading sign, however the loading sign did not go away, again I had to remove the battery. What is wrong with my Galaxy S, and what can I do to fix it? Thanks

    Upgraded via Kies without any hassle or problem.

    There's a rash of this going on. Sounds like the scrambled internal SD card. Mine did this simply by turning it on.
    Without access to download mode you might be bricked. Any chance you have a Bell issued S?

    That I don't know but you'd think that you should like most things. But the industry likes to think of themselves as special and devices at least in North America are usually tied to a carrier. So nobody seems to be responsible for device faults. They will abandon you if they can find a reason. They don't yet know how to deal with us that buy devices outright and don't enslave ourselves to contracts. But I find that careful talking can get you a replacement unless you've been a total knob with it.
