    Samsung Galaxy S2 stopped during firmware upgrade

    I installed Kies on my PC
    I connected my Samsung Galaxy S2
    It kept disconnecting every 30 seconds - 2 minutes
    When connecting I got a message saying there was a firmware upgrade
    I selected yes. It started downloading and then installing
    It disconnected a few times - I disconnected and connected again - it resumed where it left off

    Then.... during install it failed and said it had to do an emergency restore (or something)
    Now... the phone is stuck on a screen showing a phone and pc icon with a dotted line in the middle with an orange warning symbol

    Now... when I connect to my PC, nothing happens - all I get is a USB device not recognised message

    My phone isn't rooted - there's some apps I need to run that don't allow rooting

    What can I do??

    I can get into the ODIN mode - it says 'Downloading' - nothing happens
    (Where can it be downloading from!!?? Doesn't make sense - or can I connect via USB somehow)

    I've wasted too much time reading up now - I now know Kies sucks
    Kies is what caused my phone to go into this mode
    I'll call Samsung on Monday - the problem is that I purchased on eBay

    Any help would be great
