Re: Help!! phone may be bricked during root attempt on EL30
You should really never pull a cable from an unfinished cycle on ODIN; though after about 5 mins, if the cycle has not completed to a reboot on your device, you may pull the battery.
[ROOT][CWM][GUIDE][GINGERBREAD] Rooting the Samsung Epic 4g
Do Not Fret.........I know, easier said than done in your specific situation (you're in a Soft-Brick)......first, ODIN may have worked previously on your current cable or from the current version of ODIN that you used to run your EL30 update, but all bets may be OFF that this is still going to work for your next ODIN for root process.
The above link is your stickey-lifesaver courtesy of our moderator Paul627g.
As you are able to launch download mode, you're in a position to run your wipe/restore back to EL30 (again) if necessary (actually, you will have to to get out of your Soft-Brick).
Whenever you're ready:
Your best bet is to find a good microUSB cable (blackberry from Staples is a good one) that will allow your PC to connect to your EPIC........You may also need to download the samsung drivers to your PC, this may be what is preventing your SU from completing the cycle in ODIN...........also, download another version of ODIN + TRY THAT........different versions of ODIN respond differently for some reason (1.61 helped me in the very exact situation that you currently find yourself).
But give Paul's thread a read for blow-by-blow instructions............you're actually very close to where you need to be.
Good luck w/ this + get back to us w/ any questions that you may have.
