    Default T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G: Can't get into Download or Recover mode HELP!

    i recently used Odin to update my phone to 2.3.3 but now i can't get into download mode. i've tried every combination and i noticed it also won't even bring up recovery mode anymore either. i can't root now, flash another rom or anything. any help will be much appreciated. other than this the phone is amazing, i'd just really like to root it. also since Odin sees my phone when i connect to the computer, can i just plug it in after putting the files on Odin and flash from there?

    You can't flash while the phone is booted, if that's what you mean. Have you tried a jig?

    You can try this:

    Disconnect USB.
    Turn phone off. Remove battery.

    Put battery back on.

    Push both volume up and down at the same time. Dont release volumes. Then, connect USB cable (have odin ready)

    If that doesn't work, try this:

    Disconnect USB.
    Turn phone off.
    Press and hold volume down and then press power (hold). Hold both until you get into download mode and then connect USB cable.

    Important to remember that, with USB cable connected, it won't get into download mode, or at least that's what happened to me but I could fix it following one of the above mentioned methods.

    Good luck.

    IF you still can't get into DL mode, I suggest you visit xda-forums.

    Check out the xda-developers. I remember seeing a post there where that was the issue and they've figured out a way to fix that. They mentioned that it's a bug that comes with the leaked version of the 2.3.3 software.

    how to get into download mode:

    [Guide] How to get into Download Mode - xda-developers

    @robelak: yes you used a rom that is not at all intended for your phone. if the rom isnt for the t959v then DO NOT USE IT for the phone. if you can get the phone into download mode, get the files from the following link and follow the directions for flashing via odin. here is the link:

    [ODIN+CWM] GB Ext4 Starter Pack (Nov 24) - xda-developers

    hope that helps
