If you can get it back to download mode (1 + power) you should be able to fix it no problem. Before your next attempt, take out the battery and memory card, and send to download mode using the USB cable as your power source. Before you odin again, be sure you didn't download a file from the 4gTOUCH (or any other phone for that matter), as that won't work at all on the 4g.

Hate to say it, but it's happened to me too before. A trip to the sprint store, the tech took it apart to make sure there was no water damage, and promptly ordered me a replacement.
