    Sounds serious. Were you low on battery at the time?

    Apart from an official service centre, the only other solution is a JTag service.
    Google it, and you will also find ebay sellers offering the service.

    First time poster - need help. I'm totally new to android and was updating my other half's S2 GT-I9100 using Kies. Everything was going fine until Kies said there was a issue and the firmware upgrade failed. Kies suggested I go into Emergency REcovery. I did this and now nothing. I'm getting a screen on the phone which is black with a small white picture of a phone, PC and yellow warning triangle in the middle.
    Kies can't do anything and the phone is effectively dead. I have a recovery code, whatever that is, but nothing else.
