Flash Disaster! Please help!
I'm so sick of this crap...
I was running the E4GT rooted with CWM, everything correct on GB. I'd messed with some ROMs months earlier, and each time I did there was some kind of problem. If it wasn't one thing, it was another.
Now this morning, how stupid could I be, but to try and use another ROM when everything was in working order. I flashed AOKP milestone_6whateverthehellelse that comes after. Now my phone is in a lovely endless loop, where I see first the Samsung Galaxy S II screen, then the AOKP unicorn deal. Repeat. Repeat. I can't even boot into Clockworkmod to get to a backup restore. I also can't do the Odin to stock routine as my phone isn't showing the yellow 'start' or even registering with my pc. Yes I have all the drivers, yes I have Kies. I don't know what I can do now.
Please help me if you can. I'm totally done in now.

Ya onthe main scren you should see mount. Push that and mount the opposite directory. Then find your roms. You find it by pushing install and it will show you what folders you have. Well find where it is. If you need to go back out of a golfer thee is at the too a couple of dots instead of a file name. Push that to go up

I can boot into Odin, sure, I tried that yesterday first thing. Thing is, whenever I try to flash the full restore, even after I get the yellow 'com' sign on and everything looks good to go, I get a fail. Not a single pass. The ONLY rom I can seem to successfully flash is the problematic AOKP one that got me into this looped mess in the first place. Just bizarre. Pisses me off. It's like I've been cursed or someone's playing a joke on me. I'm no stranger to flashing the restore as I've had to do this before months back when something similar happened. Now, however, for whatever unholy reason, I'm not able to. At all.

This may help, like francamato suggested download sfhub's one click package onto your PC, before you try and run it go back to your phones recovery do a factory reset, then see if you can get into odin mode, if you still can't get to Odin mode try removing battery, with battery still out hold power and volume down buttons and then insert (this worked for me with a neighbors phone that was stuck in a boot loop ) Odin comes up run the restore to el29 with root option if you get this far you should be good to go. I tried Milstone 6 on my wife's phone because she wanted ics looks after getting ff18 ota, well it was a disaster. Now she's back to gb with a nice ics theme I have kept my phone on gb after trying several ics builds.
My advice its stay with gb.

When I had my E4GT, I know a lot of ROMs required you to flash the EL26 w/ CWM kernel before flashing an ICS ROM. If you didn't, bad things would happen"The worst foe lies within the self....."
