    Hi, I have had to flash my GTN7000 numerous times due to viral attack and crashes and now I appear to have reached my limit!
    I cannot use 'triangle away' because I cannot boot my phone.

    I have looked at 'sideloading' as a possible answer but find the advice unclear.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Cheers!

    Really?! You have reached your limit? I thought that was pretty much impossible, something like 10,000 flashes?

    I thought, remembering back, that the yellow triangle was always on boot on Sammys (unless using triangle away). What is actually happening? The phone just goes to the yellow triangle and no further? Can you not boot into recovery or download mode?

    It was indeed, unless you flashed an official firmware.

    I can boot into clockwork mod recovery.
    I have tried every conceivable option to reformat, reboot etc.
    I am willing to try pretty much anything as my phone is well and truly bricked!

    SOLVED!!!
    I had used odin before but with no success, this time I updated my kies program to install the driver and used the Clockwork Mod restore settings to get into download mode, which I had not achieved before.

    Thanks for all your help
