    Yes, I originally posted just the volume button only should be pushed in step 5. Try just the volume again but have odin ready. You should see a yellow box appear in odin when you connect. Sometimes the power weel work.

    Two things google download mode and try the different methods.

    if not get ADB and promt adb shell: reboot download

    That can't fail but a pain in the can.

    I had the same problem tonight trying to odin the new clockwork mod onto the 2.2 update. Followed green lantern's post and got back to dl09 and restarted from there.

    Loaded the dl09 tar file into odin, battery out, connected cable, held down volume down along with power and I was able to get into download mode and reload dl09.

    Thank goodness because I was flippin out thinking I bricked the phone...gotta love the forums....

    Ok, I think I've tried all those methods previously however I'm gonna try them again to rule them out for sure. I also just bought some resistors to try and make this download mode jig I keep hearing is suppose to always work.
    I will check back in soon one way or another.

    update:

    Ok, so I went through and tried all of your recommendations and got nothing. I made up one of those downloader jigs and i thought I had a major breakthrough however, I tried downloading the DL09 via Odin, and it failed 3 times.

    Now, after successfully using the jig to get into download mode 3x, now it won't do nothing at all. WTF!?!?
    This thing is seriously pushing my buttons

    You are sure it is not a problem with your usb cable? I am out of suggestions after that! Could just be a problem with your phone. I have had my kids pull out the cable mid download and I was able to recover. Never could brick it. Sorry man.

    I was at the point of attempting the jig, when all of a sudden my phone just started working again, no explanation. I had used one click root, then screwed up when tryiny to install the froyo... couldn't get recovery or download mode. Anyway if you can get into download again try adrynalyns d101 package, that worked for me some other time that I bricked my phone. GOOD LUCK

    Thanks guys for the troubleshooting tips. I unfortunately have not had any success. I have tried 2 different cables but I think I can rule that out though because the couple times I was able to get into download mode, Odin communicated just fine with it. As I stated above, I was able to get into DL mode with a jig I made but got a failure during loading of dl09 3x and now my jig method isn't working. I posted a screen shot of the failure.
    Anyway, I've ordered a higher quality jig and if that doesn't work, then I give up and will probably just have accept the phone is trash :-(

    Thanks again for the help

    If your new jig gets you download mode, don't try the same dl09 file that gave you the error. Again I suggest the d101 file from adrynalyn. There are other d101 files out there, I've had problems with some of those. The one from adrynalyn always works, then you can ota to dl09.
