    Bricked Phone

    Ok i think I just killed my SF! Was rooted, installed Voodoo everything was working great then I tried to install a theme. I keep'd getting force closes so I installed backup. That didn't help at all. Booted back into CM recovery made some bad choices and now my phone just stays on the Samaung name.

    I can get back into the SF recovery but I'm not able to get CM recovery!

    Any thoughts?

    This happened to me... well kind of I didn't get there the same way you did. Honestly, you're not going to like my solution - its alot of work.

    In SF recovery, do wipe data/restore, then once you're back into the phone go into menu -> settings -> privacy and do another factory reset (I had to twice, because it didn't restore it all the way like it should.).

    Then once you're completely back to stock, you will have to re-root. The easiest, quickest way is to go back to the sticky here "Noob guide to rooting" and copy/paste all the command line prompts.

    Once you have super user back, re-flash ClockworkMod. Be sure to put the CWM update.zip (its on the XDA page of how to flash CWM) onto your SD card before you go any further. Then, go back into CWM and re-do your restore. At this point, you should be back to where ever you were before things went wonky.

    If you need help, you can find me on gtalk at: z e r o 7 s t a r z A T g m a i l d o t c o m.

    P.S. if you're pretty comfortable with Odin, you can go back to the XDA page of how to flash CWM and grab the Odin SF restore files, and flash those instead of doing the double factory resets. It might be a quicker rout and cut some time/steps off of this.

    Don't be too worried - you didn't "brick" it, its just sick As long as its getting back into some form of recovery, you should be just fine.

    If anyone has anything to add to this, please feel free.e

    Ok I got pblms. Started the root process again the same way as I did for the first phone and I couldn't get CWM to boot into recovery. so I took your advice and did a data wipe in SF recovery. Now the I'm getting so many force closes I cant do anything. I can get threw the Back up assistance but can't open Google to set up my account. So I skip that and it takes me to the home screen which won't show because its force closing. Help please!

    Ok I went from good to bad again. Now my phone is stuck in airplane mode so I can't use it. It just blinks the lock screen at me and telling me my battery is is not connected. Can't boot into CWR because the battery is to low.

    I booted into SFR and did a data/cache wipe. That didn't change anything.

    Update: went back to odin3 and flashed a CWMRecovery.tar and it seems to be some what stable but I'm still stuck in airplane mode

    Weird... did you install voodoo? I know the battery not connected error is something that it can cause, but I haven't heard of a phone getting stuck in airplane mode. When you flashed with Odin, you used the PDA option not the Phone option, correct? (Please say yes D

    Yes, i did use the PDA and installed the voodo. When ever I do a data wipe it never takes me threw the account set up.

    What happens if you do use the phone tab instead of the PDA?

    Do I have any chance to get this phone back up and running?
