    Exclamation Bricked?

    Well, it looks like I have me a paperweight here. :| I knew I shouldn't have used Heimdall, since I've never used it before, but I did. I'll try flashing CWM but I have my doubts...

    Can you boot into download mode? What were you trying to flash?

    FK23 , but I got stuck at data and then it failed, and when I tried prepartitioning it, it did nothing.

    If it's stuck at data then yes, you probably do have a brick I've use Heimdall with no problems...it must have been something with this particular .Tar that Heimdall can't handle???

    Doubtful. Had you flashed anything recently using CWM prior to your trying to flash FK23 in Heimdall? I suspect your EMMC was already damaged prior to your trying the Heimdall flash. We saw this same thing earlier in the year, when Odin would get stuck at data.img, when people were trying to recover.

    Yeah, I flashed my AOSP build, but it didn't boot, just stuck at Samsung splash. I was using Stock EL26 if that helps..

    Should have been fine from EL26. I would try again using the FK23 Odin one click. I thought you used a Windows machine. Why did you use Heimdall?

    I guess there's a chance it was Heimdall but I still doubt that. It could have been something in the update binary of your ROM that didn't play nice with CWM, but I'm just throwing out guesses as I'm no developer.

    Okay, the other phone wont charge anymore, so I'll just use the titanium version I bought not too long ago. I was trying to sell this since it didn't have nfc, but I need it now :thumbdown:
