    Ok, so here's what happened, first off I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE on Rogers network, running 4.0.4, my phone died on me one night, so instead of plugging it into the wall charger, I plugged it into the usb on my pc, the phone turned on and went into ODIN mode, I rebooted it, and everything was fine, but now when I plug it into the usb on my pc, its shows up as unknown device, I have tried, three different computers, uninstalled kies, and have also reformatted my phone, all to no avail, please help!

    Have you reinstalled the phone's drivers?

    Might also need to use USBDeview to remove the device from your Windows system's registry before plugging it back in.

    My favorite stupid question, which I’m only asking because it’s happened to me:

    Have you tried a different USB cable?

    Some, apparently, connect the charging pins but not the data pins; others are just plain intermittent.

    yes I have uninstalled all Drivers, tried it on three computers, one of which has never had kies installed on it before, and have also tried two different cables.
