    Rooted phone won't reboot

    Had my phone rooted three weeks ago by a friend I trust implicitly.
    It worked fantastical!!
    My phone locked up friday and wouldn't do anything.
    I popped the battray out popped it back in and when
    I power up and all I get is the word samsung on the screen and nothing else.
    battray will still charge but it won't do anything.
    I have tried multitudes of battray out/in - no effect
    left it battray out all night - no effect
    various combinations of screen tapping and button pushing - no effect

    Any other ideas on what to try? Buddy won't be back in town until late Monday.

    I got this free on Black friday at BEST BUY with the two year contract.

    if my buddy cant fix it, HOW SCREWED am I, and would BB be able to tell its been rooted
    or is there a way to really "break" it so they can't tell and just have to replace it.

    Sorry for the long post
    Thanks in advance.

    THESE are the instructions I'd follow in your situation. If you aren't familiar with Odin and how to use it, then download the files and report back and I'll help you through it.

    NOTE: Do not ever press the PHONE button in Odin. You risk ruining your phone.

    Yep. Open Odin which you downloaded. Unplug phone from any cords and remove the battery from your phone. Plug usb cord into computer. While pressing "Volume down" button, plug phone into usb. You should see a large triangle appear on phone's screen and be notified in Odin that connection was made. Using PDA button in Odin, select .tar file which you also just downloaded. Press start. Let process complete, it will notify you when it's done. Once phone screen has gone black, disconnect cable, reinsert battery and boot phone.

    Oops!!!

    I didn't read that carefully enough,
    I took the battery out but got nothing so i put it back in and tried and this is what I got

    a green triangle with the droid bot in holding a microphone

    under the triangle it says "Downloading...

    at the bottom of the screen it says

    Do not turn off Target!!!

    please tell i'm not totally screwed.

    but if I am please do it gently.

    Sounds like you've done it correctly. Did you have Odin open already when you plugged your phone in and it went into download mode?

    Megalos

    can you explain "open print first" for me

    Sorry for sounding like a first grader,

    but belive me I want to learn as much as I can

    I'm trying to read as much as I can here,

    It's the proverbial drinking from a fire hose.
