    so ill try to keep this short and succint

    purchased phone 3 yrs ago, i usually dont change phones until i need to...

    I had a bad on/off switch issue, had that fixed but while i wasopening the back i messed up the touchpad buttons and microphone

    downloaded button savior and everything was fine, and then I decided to root it so access all of button saviors features, followed steps and rooted it fine

    recently, phone started downloading gobs of data, gigabytes a day....ATT and samsung had no answer. I explored all options...no answers. Put the chip in old iphone 3gs and the gobs of data normalized....Att guys said it was because i had an old phone?? seems odd as the iphone is older......

    was it sucking up data because it was rooted? i dunno

    so in my journey to try to fix it, i went into the download mode thru the recovery system (not cwm, but the other one)
    and i pressed the delete cacche button and from what i understand i deleted my entire operating system......

    now the phone does not go past the samsung logo on start up

    is there any way to recover from what has happened.

    thanks for your help

    If you can get into download mode, which is powering on the device by pressing power and volume down, you should be able to flash a stock ROM to the phone. If you can't get into download mode, there is probably not much hope.

    Volume down+home+power. SamMobile Firmwares has the March 2013 (probably 4.1.2) ROM, which you'll install with Odin. (You'll have to create a free account on SamMobile to download the ROM.) You'll need the SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones if you've never installed it. If you need help, just tack a post onto this thread (use the Reply button).

    thank you

    I can get to DL mode, but honestly, i am android illiterate...i dont know what kernels and roms and rams etc are....

    if someone can gimme basic steps to do a reboot, id be thrilled and appreciative....

    when i had done my root a fewmonths ago, i had downloaded odin or something but deleted it since

    i am worried tho that this data issue may arise again....i really have no idea why a gig a day was being used when at most i use a gig a month

    Here's some instructions that should help if you still need to unbrick your Skyrocket.


    Samsung USB drivers
    Stock TAR for SGH-I727


    *To begin, download the tar file onto your PC.
    *Run ODIN on the PC.
    *In ODIN, hit the PDA button and browse to the .tar file already downloaded. Select that file.
    *Check the Auto-Reboot option only. Make sure Re-Partition is unchecked. (Important!)
    *Turn off the device and enter download mode by pressing and holding the Volume Down + Power + Home Key for a good 3 seconds.
    *Once you’ve entered download mode, connect the device to the PC.
    *Lastly, hit Start and wait for the process to complete. Once the process completes, the phone will reboot.

    thanks downloading components now....so will the phone be rooted or stock

    one thing i just thought of, becomes my home and back buttons wont work until I download button savior it might be tricky to get around the phone..

    also, anyone have any thoughts on my data issue

    the phone would get really hot, battery would drain and hundred of mb to a gig would download but nothing to show for it
