    Oh by the way, those who are reading this post and haven't done either an ODIN backup or a PDA backup, you should do it now. Don't wait till its too late.

    READ THIS FIRST
    Before actually saying that applying well-known stuff (CyanogenMod alpha) bricked please, please read this.

    FLASHING IN ORDER
    FIRMWARE->ROOT (e.g. LK2.08 for original firmwares - Root (new Superuser), WiFi tether, bb [12.07.2010] )->DEODEXED KERNEL (e.g. http://forum.samdroid.net/f9/samdroi...i5700-en-1901/ )-> OTHER ADDONS (e.g. CyanogenMod-6.1.0-Spica-alpha6.2)

    THOSE ASKING ABOUT MOUNT FUNCTION, PLEASE USE LK2.08 AND THE MOUNT OPTION IS RIGHT BELOW.

    And this thread is just a general idea of un-bricking your Spica. Some issues can be solved with a simple patch. Check with respective devs for solutions before actually embark on your un-bricking journey.

    BE FOREWARNED. DATA WILL BE LOST ON SOME OF THE PROCEDURES.

    If still bricked, start the procedure below.


    RELEASE THE KRAKEN!

    Types of "Spoilt"

    1. No booting, no download mode (vol down+camera+turnon)

    -You most probably flashed either a corrupted bootlogo/ a bootlogo too large of a file size. ( Tutorial : How to create custom bootlogo & bootanimation )

    - Try going to recovery through this if you can't enter recovery mode: (Haven't tried it personally yet)
    Use adb program from android sdk. First you must connect the phone to the usb.
    run this command:
    adb device
    then
    adb shell
    after that, you have the shell. run 'su' command (without quote) the run 'reboot recovery'. The phone will restart and enter recovery mode.
    *thanks to jomir*

    REPORTED NOT WORKING FOR THIS PROBLEM. WORKS FOR ANOTHER TYPE.. STILL TRY IF YOU WANT TO

    -Send to samsung and pray hard that they give the warranty to you since the entire motherboard has to be changed.

    2. Boot-able, Download mode can be accessed, Past boot splash, Boot loop on boot animation.

    -Try clearing dalvik cache in recovery.

    -Remove sd card *thanks to billamin*

    -If it doesn't work, try clearing data-cache

    -If it still doesn't work, flash new firmware.

    (NOTE: This is one of the milder type of brick. Easily reversible.)

    3. Boot-able, keep on booting to recovery.

    (One of the more irritating bootloops)

    -Check if all /system, /data and /sdcard are mounted (quite a bummer. almost took me a trip to samsung before finally solving this little problem)

    -Try clearing dalvik cache

    -If it doesn't work, clear data-cache

    -Flash a new mod.

    -Reflash a new firmware.

    -If it still doesn't work, and you have done a pda backup for Odin in the past, try flashing that. (Weird but it worked for me once)

    -restore /system backup (PDA/system) from recovery? (Please clarify. Haven't done that before.) (EDIT: Checked. Takes a very long time to restore. Give it around 12 hours.)

    -Flash a 1.5 firmware and build up for 2.1. Further details click link. ( Boot loop )

    -Send to Samsung.

    4. Boot-able, unable to enter recovery mode.

    - Try going to recovery through this if you can't enter recovery mode: (Haven't tried it personally yet)
    Use adb program from android sdk. First you must connect the phone to the usb.
    run this command:
    adb device
    then
    adb shell
    after that, you have the shell. run 'su' command (without quote) the run 'reboot recovery'. The phone will restart and enter recovery mode.
    *thanks to jomir*

    hi i have a problem with my spica

    i can't enter recovery mode via button (volume down+call+end call) and can't boot normally too.

    in tutorial at page 1 i read that i can go into recovery mode via adb but my spica can't boot normally so the adb program doesn't work.

    so how can i get into recovery mode in my spica? its there any other way to get into recovery mode beside via buttor or adb?

    thx for your attention and sorry for my bad english

    Hi, Please can you point me in the right direction. I had used all the info on these forums to root and upgrade my spica to this mod. All has been going well for the last 18months. However, I have a new phone new, so thought i would clear my spica and do a fresh install...whoops! I messed around in the recovery menus and now i am stuck at the andriod loading screen. I can enter boot mode, but the methods on the de-brick pages don't seem to help.

    Please can someone tell me what to do!

    Thanks

    p.s. please let me know if this is on the wrong forum!

    After flashing with odin when my phone switch on, it gets stuck on samdroid boot animation when the bar is filled. How do i fix it? I tried to remove sd card and clear data cache. I am going to try to flash with original kernel. My problem is, where do I get original kernel?
