Semi Bricked S2 :( Phone not recognized by computer/odin
So sad. Just bought this phone. I tried to upgrade to ICS via but used the Galaxy S firmware (gti9000) by mistake...turns out ICS isn't out yet for my phone, the SPHD710. While flashing I managed to upload the "modem" file but when it was writing the file (it says "wait 2 minutes for write") odin froze.
Here's the situation. The phone will boot into the gti9000 firmware (i.e I get to home screen--so I think i'm semi-bricked), but wifi won't work and the phone crashes a lot. Basically like a "safe-mode". Here are the conditions I'm dealing with
1) Windows 7 will not recognize phone when plugged in. It charges but does not show up in device manger
2) Odin does not recognize the phone at all. It was recongized for a split second on my laptop when I was installing/reinstalling drivers. Can't replicate this.
So basically I'm stuck. I tried going into recovery mode and applying update from SDcard (to revert to stock) but i the SD card won't mount
Anybody help??? PLEASE. I don't want a $500 paperweight. I just got this as an xmas gift from my gf. Ill be a tree ornament if she sees the phone isn't working when she returns on the 27th :S
I can give as many details as you like.
Thanks so much!

I tried to upgrade to ICS with the I9100 xxlp6 with odin, toward the end of the flash odin failed. Now the only thing I can get out of the phone is download mode, and a screen that says firmware ugrade encountered an issue, Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again. Now the problem with this is now odin nor Kies will recognize my phone like there are no drivers, or it isn't plugged in even though it is.
