I attempted to update my phone to the latest firmware, via Kies, & although Kies gave a successful report, the handset said there was an error, & would reboot. Ever since that point, all i can get, is the main Samsung 'GALAXY S GT-I9000' screen, & doesn't reach the shiny 'S' symbol. I've also tried hard & soft resets, but nothing seems to get me back to the proper menu. The hard reset gives this report -
Can't access to '/system/csc/ORA/system/.
Succesfully applied multi-CSC.
Doing the vol down, home & power button just takes me to the downloading screen, with the android man doing roadworks, & i left it on that screen for about 3 hours, with no progress.
Soft reset just takes me back to the 'GALAXY S GT-I9000' screen.
clicking 'yes' on the 'wipe data' option gives this report -
E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblkop2
E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/stl10
Deleting Meta Data
E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/stl11
Data wipe complete.
Now, whenever i try to connect to Kies, i get the following message -
Reconnect the device in Samsung Kies (PC Studio) mode. Current connection mode not supported by Kies.
Obviously, as i can't get to the menu screen, i can't change the connection mode, so i can't install anything via the PC.
Anyone got any clues as to what i do next?
