All of this happen because I want to upgrade it into Android 4.4 (Kitkat).
1.I successfully downgraded into stock rom/firmware (froyo) by Odin.
2.I upgraded into custom rom/firmware (gingerbread) by samsung kies.
3.I root a wrong root, it's for I9000 by Odin,caused it become boot stuck,but able to fix it by wiping caches & other etc.
4.I root a correct root for SC-02B,but don't know why it make my phone soft bricked,I tried wiping caches & other etc,it doesn't work.
5.So I decided to downgraded it into stock rom/firmware,but it make more worst, it re-partitioned finished but the PIT files,it doesn't even begin to flashing it stuck for 10 mins.
6.I close Odin,remove the battery,& unpluged the usb.That what happen to my phone,it can only charge to a wall charger.A few weeks later I bought a very cheap JIG ordered from internet,it gave nothing but a heat to my phone, no download mode.So please anyone whoever encounter with this situation,please give a guide or instructions to fix my phone thank you.

Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Software Development forum to the Galaxy S forum for more specific traffic.

It's a 10 year old phone with 512 of ram. And you rooted it. To a hungry os. I think you need a newer device. Good luck
