    Virgin Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2 4G. It's bricked... It's only two weeks old. I bought it locally. If I take this back will they know I bricked it...? I have used CMM to do a Factory Reset. It will not boot at all now. It can be booted to the screen with the yellow triangle - if the battery is removed an replaced - but then the screen goes black and you can do nothing to it.

    That's not hard bricked you just need to load up cwm. Read the website on Koushik Dutta that should work.
    Or I'm not sure if you can use the original recovery program:
    A little late but...

    1. Turn off SGS2.
    2.Press and hold down Volume Up + Home + Power buttons at the same time.
    3.Release all buttons when you see SGS2 Logo.
    4.Android system recovery will be loaded then.
    5.Select wipe data/factory reset. (Volume buttons to go up or down, select with Home button)
    6.Select Yes delete all user data.
    7.Finally, select reboot system now.

    Great advice. Sure wish I knew the result, a simple " thank you "would be nice.
