    I was trying to manually update my phone from version 27 to version 18. I was using the instructions on xda and I followed the instructions exactly as they said and the phone shut off like it was rebooting however it did not come back on. I waited awhile and nothing happened so I unplugged it and it wont turn on at all. So I plugged the phone into the wall however it wont even show it is charging. Then I took the battery out and now on the screen it is showing a pic of a phone with a line going to a computer. Does anyone know what I did to this phone??? It will not turn turn on or off... it just stays on that screen.

    Sounds like you bricked the phone. If you were doing the update from SD card, you should NOT have had the phone plugged in. Did you try starting up in recovery mode? Hold Vol Down, Camera, and Power through the power up process. Otherwise, you may have to flash a stock ROM using ODIN. There's a sticky above, on how to do this, by Andrew R.

    yeah I got it. I ws using instructions from another webpage and I put the file in the phone section instead of pda so it briked it. So I tried it again and it flashed the same rom that I had on here cause I downloaded the wrong one but when I turned the phone on it actually recognized the updates and did it on its own. I'm glad I know how to do it now for future reference.thank you all for your help though.i never thought I would be able to do that but it wasn't that bad.
