    Angry Am I Screwed? Semi Bricked Epic Touch - Please Read

    here's the deal - i had a bad flash in odin - now my epic touch boot loops in android recovery 3e. I can sroll up and down with the volume keys, but cannot select anything! I CAN get into download mode, however my PC and ODIN no longer recognize anything's plugged in.

    Things I've tried:
    Reinstalling Kies - Reinstalling the Samsung USB Drivers - unplugging the battery - letting it sit for a while - left it overnight - tried 3 different PCs, all diff. operating systems (WIN7, XP, VISTA). Having the battery out then out in holding every possible combinations of buttons. etc..

    Am i screwed, or will the usb jig help me? I feel like if i could just get odin to see me i'll be fine. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    PS - is there a stock 2.3.4 or 2.3.5 i can go back to - say if i ever get this working in odin again?
    Thanks again.

    I had the same issue, all i did was do a battery pull, go into download mode, and then install this thru Odin. I didn't however have the issue of getting odin working. Maybe a driver issue?

    Ouch, how did you do a bad flash of a kernel in odin?

    Do you have cwm or just the stardard android restore?

    Maybe bad cable?

    try this [ACS][KERNEL] ClockworkMod Recovery v 5.0.2.6 // Latest Compiled Version - xda-developers
