Hi, I'm new to the forums so please forgive any breaches in etiquette. My fascinate was acting funny so I was going to take it back to stock with Odin. I didn't realize that I had a hardware problem with my usb port. While I was in the middle of loading ed05 my connection broke leaving my phone seemingly bricked. I can get it into download mode but my computer doesn't recognize the phone so that I can re-connect to Odin. I probably know the answe but any help would be appreciated.

I have a Verizon Samsung Fascinate. I tried to do the over-the-air update to 2.3. My phone got stuck on the Samsung screen. Then, after pulling the batter, it would start into manual mode with a whole sting of error codes. Verizon could not fix it without sending me a new one. I can't live that long without my phone because of my business. Anyway, thanks to this thread, and these below, I was able to restore to stock ROM, and then re-update. I did lose all of my data, but it was alread backed-up, but at least I have a working phone again!
Odin Restore files to get you to stock - xda-developers Links do not work, but instructions are good.
*OFFICIAL* DL09.tar.md5 - xda-developers Stock Rom downloaded from here.
[PROGRAM] Odin 1.82 with pit files. - xda-developers Odin files from here.
I have a fascinate that has been flashed using odin to 2.2.1 i just want to get it back to factory so i can get the OTA updates. so do i just need to do the first step of flashing the stock odin files?

So I read briefly some instructions on how to get this fascinate upgraded to ICS, followed the instructions for Cyanogenmod's version up to the point where I got an error stating "signature verification failed" in which I searched for a resolution on various forums where I was instructed to roll the OS back to v2.1 because 2.3 and 2.2 verified the MD5 before allowing a flash. I both checked the update.zip file and the MD5 matched so I attempted to roll the version back to 2.1. I found that Odin was the easiest way to do this so I downloaded Odin v1.0 not knowing that it had a built in ATT rom pack. I have no idea what to do now that my Verizon phone now boots up as an "AT&T World Phone" logo and all. I cannot boot into the manual loader nor the downloading mode, all that happens is a constant power cycle of the AT&T boot load logo. I have the drivers for samsung fascinate installed and my XP computer does not load the USB device when I plug the microUSB cord in. Can anyone assist me in recovering this phone or am I left with a paperweight?
Thanks for your time and attention.
I partially resolved this by swapping out hardware components from another phone with a broken screen. lol Couldn't find any other fix.

If you flashed an at&t rom pack, you might have fried the modem being any phone on at&t uses gsm, when I had my fascinate if u did this you can get it back to a vzw stock but basically was doomedOriginally Posted by davisar5
