Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I can get the downloading mode after pressing the volume down + home + power button.

But it is in downloading mode from last few hours. What should I do now?

Thanks & Regards:

- turn off your phone by removal the battery, insert it again and turn on.
- You can flash a Gingerbread ROM like XXJVT or XXJVU.

Hi,

The android OS installed in my phone was Froyo not Gingerbread. After removing the battery and turning it on, there is not flash to select the ROM. After turning on only samsung is displayed.

Kindly do let me know the way forward.

Thanks & Regards:

If factory reset doesn't work,  you can either send it away for repair or possibly flash new phone software.

If you can't get it into download mode to flash software,  it's a repair job.

I think, it was Android system recovery 3E. (see the attached file)
Try this:
- remove the battery.
- press and hold vol. down+home+power and slide the battery in.
waiting for feedback.
If it doesn't help, get a JIG.


I tried this but that menu did not come up, only the "downloading... do not turn off target" mode. I need to be able to reboot because I don't have an external SD and there are sentimental photos/videos of a friend who has passed away.

Help...

Hey,

I've had the identical problem as of yesterday. The phone became unresponsive, I switched it off, and couldn't get it to start back on again.

I removed the battery etc. etc. but I get to the S screen after which I just get a blank screen.

I was very very heartened when I saw this forum and made an account - I've tried volume up + power + home, wipe data/factory reset, then reboot system now but it doesn't work Crying I get to the S screen animation + sound (my phone doesn't vibrate) and then it just goes blank again...

Any ideas? Please help...

As you have important data on the phone memory, I can suggest 2 possible ways of doing this:

Option 1)
Using Odin, flash new software to the phone to get it working again, plug it into a pc in USB Mass Storage Mode, and use Piriform Recover software (free) to try and recover the lost photos/video as they will almost certainly be deleted.

No guarantee on how much can be recovered, might be all, might be nothing or anything in between.


Option 2)
Please note this is based on you having Gingerbread software on the phone(I9000 model), and being able to access Download and Recovery modes:

Also, as there is already an issue with the phone, there are no guarantees that trying to flash new kernel with be successful or that it will not make the phone worse.

Go to http://www.semaphore.gr/kernels/Semaphore_2.5.0scbm.tar to download the semaphore kernel for gingerbread

Using Odin install this kernel to your phone

The kernal includes CWM which is a modified version of the recovery mode with far more options.

Enter Recovery mode by powering up using volume up & home & power.

plug the phone to your pc with usb.

One of the extra options of the CWM Recovery is 'Mounts & Storage', select this, then select mount usb.

After a few seconds, the phone storage will be available to access on your pc, the same as though the phone was started normally and plugged in using USB Mass Storage Mode, you can then safely copy your files from the phone storage to your pc.

Once done, you can send the phone for repair or flash new software yourself.

Hope this is of help, please pm me if you need any further advise such as using Odin.

Following the above option 2 if you are on Froyo

The following steps are to install a speedmod kernel onto Froyo.

The aim is NOT to fix the phone, but to get CWM (ClockWork Mod) Recovery installed onto your phone instead of the stock android recovery, this will allow you to plug your phone into your PC in USB Mass Storage mode while in Recovery Mode and copy.

Once you have recovered all data, you can flash new software on the phone yourself or send away for repair.

WARNINGS/PREPS: This method is not gauranteed, there is always a risk (however small) of bricking your SGS when you install non-official software using not official methods, if you choose to follow the steps, make sure you know the risks, as the responsibility is yours.
I would also guess the risks are hgher if you are already having issues with the phone.

You need the following:
USB cable.
Kies already installed on the PC (but not open or in the background).
Must be able to enter Download Mode (Vol Down & Home & Power) and Recovery Mode (Vol Up & Home & Power) to follow these steps.
Will need to download Odin and a Suitable Kernel (compatible with Froyo and including CWM)

You can try:
Odin:
http://vln01.helochat.com/tourist/Odin3-v1.85.zip
SpeedMod Kernel:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=522486&d=1298200896

Extract the files into a folder of your choice on your hard drive.

The  following video shows you step by step how to install the SpeedMod Kernal. Follow this.



Plug the phone into the USB

Start the phone in Recovery mode

Select Mounts and Storage > Mount USB

After a few moments the Phone storage will be available to access on your PC, you can then copy the files to your PC.
