I have a Galaxy S running some version of Darky's Rom (I bought it off eBay 3-4 months ago and it had already been flashed)

My phone ran out of battery yesterday and turned itself off. I charged it and tried to turn it back on, but it would get stuck on the loading screen. I could reach the recovery screen and so decided to do a reset to factory defaults after exhausting all other options.

This partially worked. The phone now turns on and gets past the loading screen. It shows some basic tutorial information and offers me the option to connect my Google account. However, after that, it shows the error message:

"The application Setup Wizard (process com.android.setupwizard) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"

It then gives me the option to force close. If I click it, the phone displays a black screen.

If someone texts me or calls me, the screen changes to the normal text/call display and I can bring down the slidedown menu which has Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS etc. I can also reach the recovery mode and download mode from here. However if I turn the phone off and on again, the same problem occurs where it gets stuck on the loading screen and I have to reset it to factory defaults again.

Is my phone completely broken? Can it be fixed and how do I do it?

Try flashing it with another firmware.

There's this Heimdall, The Guardian: General Introduction to Flashing Guide that you can follow.

BTW, there's also a Search box on top of every page in this Forum. Try using it too.

Thanks.

I tried following one tutorial, and properly bricked my phone. It started showing this image:



So I put my phone into download mode, loaded up odin with 512.pit and JPY.tar and flashed my phone.

Factory reset phone not working


The new problem I have is that the phone now looks like this when it reboots:

http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/9956/phonev.jpg
Factory reset phone not working


The text at the bottom reads:

update media, please wait
E:Can't mount /dev/block/st110
(invalid argument)
E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount DBDATA:


 your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions.
copy default media content failed.

And then the UI menu reads:

reboot system now
apply sdcard:update.zip
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
format internal sd-card

If I select reboot system now, the phone displays the loading screen, and then goes to a black screen and vibrates semi-periodically.

What should I do? I just want my phone to work and I couldn't find any similar topics on the forums.

Goto Darky's, download and flash to his ROM.

Then goto the Market, download and install Voodoo Control.

Start Voodoo Control and untick the top 2 options to disable Lagfix. On next reboot the phone will talk to you while converting ext4 file system back to RFS. Allow up to 1/2 hour.

Flash your device to the JPY.tar that you'd downloaded previously.

If I successfully flashed to Darky's Rom v10 couldn't I just leave it as that, rather than flashing again to JPY?

Of course you can.

Darky's V10 is very good. I was using it before   I updated to this F1.

Okay I successfully flashed Ficeto_JVH and my phone has become usable again. However the standard ROM is so ugly compared to Darky's that I'm going to flash it again. I'm just waiting for an sd card to come in the post.

Thanks for all your help Omnian.
