    After having major problems with the stock "messaging" app constantly force closing, I eventually had to do another factory data reset but afterwards I still got force closes immediately after the device turned on. So I decided to try and flash the orginal software (rooted) onto the phone to try and clear up all the force closings.

    Now I'm stuck in a custom ROM that's supposed to be like stock but rooted and slightly stripped of some of the bloatware, but every time I boot the phone now it shows the padlock with the word "custom" which I always hoped to never see. After it boots up twice with that message it will bypass it and boot all the way up. However, I now have a replacement coming from VZW and I don't want to send this one back in this condition.

    I have found another stock image (unrooted) to flash but now my PC will NOT reccognize the phone in Odin3 anymore no matter what...so I can't continue on flashing the hopefully better and full stock image and therefore am "stuck."

    Please Help!!!! I just need to find a way for the phone to be seen again by Odin3 (version 3.04 btw) so I can flash hopefully a version that will not only get rid of the padlock/custom error, but also give me a clean working version of "messaging" (small yellow and white envelope icon).

    PLEASE HELP IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!!!!! Thanks.
