        but none of these are working.. i am in big trouble yaar. please help me to get rid of it, is there any way to start phone working with myself. (without help of service center, i have downloaded odin and required firmware, but phone isn’t starting only), please help me please..

        • That means there is a little bit big problem , dont worry. Just tell me how you bricked your phone.

          • प्रसाद जंगम says:

            1. i rooted my phone
            2. installed titanium backup and rom manager
            3. before downloading and installing any other custom rom i clicked on backup my rom
            4. clicked on ok (when it asked me to name it, default was date i guess)
            5. phone screen got blank n when i tried to start it i realized that i am in big trouble.. the phone isn’t starting only no screen nothing tried almost everything read on forums :(
            please help me kuldeep..

          • Oh , do you know how many times i said ROM manger is not compatible with ace it always brick it. Only way to repair is customer care center. Dnnt tell them what you have done otherwise they will not repair it

          • प्रसाद जंगम says:

            ok, can they find out if phone is rooted (i wont tell them anything) or i have tried to install rom etc. i am scared of that only now

          • प्रसाद जंगम says:

            hey yesterday when i was trying to connect ace on odin, i tried press and hold “volume up + volume down + mid key + power” and phone was detected by odin :). i prepared odin with the firmware and started but it got stuck at “setup connection”, does it have any solution?? (and yes my phone’s screen was totally blank, it never rise up)

          • Yagneshkumar Parmar says:

            same problem here dude… does anyone got solution for it….

  43. Saurabh says:

    where is the OneClick.jar’ file

  44. Bjth_ev says:

    can u please help me? i have hard bricked my ace(rom manager)..i tried the 3 button thing-not working..went to customer service, they r asking to change motherboard and pay 4 it-comes to 10k..Heimdall not installing..saying problem while installing..what do i do?

    • Yes ROM manger damages phone very badly , if you told customer care that you have rooted your phone then you have to pay otherwise they will replace it for free.

      • what should i tell them when they ask what happened to the phone? will they believe it?

        • Tell them one you start firmware update from kies and when finished your phone wont boot. If they ask which firmware , tell then i dont know i just saw firmware update and started update. Behave like a total noob

    Hi Kuldeep, I have samsung Galaxy Pop (SCH i559) having Froyo 2.2.
    1. I tried to upgrade it to Gingerbread 2.3.6 through ODIN (with Tass file and one integrated package file). Everything went well till reset step.
    2. Phone took reboot and didnt started for a minute.
    3. So I disconnected phone from laptop and tried to boot it manually by pressing power button, and when it didnt work, i removed battery.
    4. And I think that was the biggest mistake. Now I am not able to start my phone in any mode, neither in recovery nor in downloading.
    5. I tried all key combination, with battery out and than without releasing button, inserted battery, but nothing helped.
    6. Than I went to samsung service center, they checked and told me that phone is dead and need to replace motherboard costing Rs 4600/- .
    7. I also tried OneClick package, but as my phone is dead, that software is also getting failed.
    Can u pls help me out in this regard. I have tried a lot to set mobile in download mode, but not successful. Hope to have some feedback from your side.
