    if you aren't on CM9 rom now don't use CWM6 kernel to flash this. Odin back to el26 kernel and flash this. i think all the bricking going on are people on TW rom using AOSP kernel to flash this.
    IF your on a TW rom, odin back el26 and flash this
    IF your on a CM/AOSP/AOKP then use chris's CWM6 kernel

    can't be to sure that this is why the bricking is happening, this is just my honest opinion based on all the posts here.

    If you let the screen timeout then it stays asleep. However if you hit the power button it wakes up at random.

    Same issue here as well. Just wondering if yours eventually stopped doing this.

    That is just a bandaid on a problem, the real problem is the sounds do not work: as someone stated before ringtones, notifications, apollo, all dont work the only thing that seems to work is poweramp...

    if what nothingblooms suggested didn't work then you are most likely hard bricked. Are you on boost mobile or something? You can always try selling it on ebay as a brick and make decent cash on it.

    edit

    Isn't the phone still under manufacturers warranty and he can send it straight to Samsung?

    He is indeed hard bricked. He used the wrong kernel to flash the rom. Most likely flashed from internal storage. Its toast.

    I was under the impression based off of threads I have read that if you are hard bricked then odin back to complete stock, find original stock files. You will also have to possibly reflash a different modem. However if the thing wont even show any signs of life, and you have in connected to a charger your phukked.

    If you are hard bricked I believe you won't see any signs of life except for a blue light, you won't be able to odin or flash anything to bring it back. Doesn't hurt to try though.

    Call Samsung and find out if you can send it in to them and maybe they will fix it/replace it.

    How do I install it?


    Make sure you've enabled on USB debugging on your phone in Settings -> Application -> Development
    2. Get the Android SDK here: Android SDK | Android Developers
    Extract the SDK to any folder say C:\Android
    Make sure that you have installed the drivers for your phone and the operating system recognizes your phone.

    Everything installed? Continuing...

    Now how to actually access the log, everything in italic are commands you need to enter.


    Open the 'run' dialog by pressing the 'Windows' + 'r' buttons on your keyboard (minimize the browser & other non-windows programs)
    cmd (this will open a DOS prompt)
    cd c:\Android\tools (go to the directory where you extracted the SDK)
    adb shell
    Now you'll see just a '$'
    logcat

    not as easy as it sounds. good luck

    if the phone is hard bricked the only thing to fix it is hardware. It makes sense, soft brick software(odin) Tell them whatever you want but the fact of the matter is, its ed. Same thing happened to my mesmerize(apparantly) no fixing it, just pay the insurance deductible and get a new one so much less hassle.
