Root Samsung Galaxy Y - Bricked?


It seems i have bricked my galaxy Y:

I was trying to flash custom ROM, was following instruction:
download ROM, CWM, do wipe data/cache, boot into Recovery, flash CWM, flash ROM, reboot... and i'm jammed on boot logo with the text: Samsung Galaxy Y Young GT-S5363, nothing else happens.

I can do it again, but:

When i'm trying to wipe data/cache via Recovery, i have the following:
Formatting /data...
E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/stl11
Formatting /cache...
E:format_volume: rfs format failed o /dev/stl10
Data wipe complete.

If i'm trying to wipe data/cache via CWM Recovery, everything seems OK.

But if i flash any custom ROM, i have only boot logo, and nothing else.

And at this time, i can't flash stock ROM via ODIN, ODIN can't see my phone.

So, any idea please?? :(((


Thread starter
Samsung Apps download and install this latest kies to see your phone in odin! hit thanks if i help :)

Hi, thanks for this help. I was trying it many times (install drivers, uninstall drivers, install Kies, uninstall), but without success.

PC couldn't find the device. I uninstall all drivers and Kies from the PC.
Restart PC, download latest Kies (, install it.
Meanwhile, power off the device, pull out the battery, insert the baterry, power on device, boot into Download mode ODIN, start ODIN on PC, set archives for stock ROM (pda, phone, csc), plug the USB cable to PC and connect with the device, voila i can start the flashing...

Now i'm going to flash custom ROM on this stock ROM, second attempt, hope now it will works properly.

Thank you all.

Android Expert
Can you get into recovery mode?(Vol up , power and home)

If so try flashing a stock or custom ROM, download it to your sd card via the PC, boot to recovery and wipe everything, instal from sd card.

I'm not responsible if this doesn't work, or it does brick your phone!


I did everything like is said in the manual.
I have the GT-B5510

When i start up at recoverymode (V+, Home, Power) i have to confirm a password????

WHAT password? I never put in a password on my phone...


Pfff sorry, my bad.
It seems the passcode to go out of screensaver is the password.

So for everybody who has the same thing:
BEFORE you start the software, write down ALL codes and passwords you have installed.
Because one of them is the password to continue the installation


i had nemesis one custom rom installed on my galaxy y gt-5360 with the stock kernel....
then i decided to switch to HYPERION-8.PRE-GM.BUILD.02 custom rom...and i installed it via CWM in recovery mode...and it was installed successfully...
bt after installing when i rebooted my phone it was stuck on the galaxy y logo.....(i waited for 6-7 was it enough????)..
