[Q] Bricked: No recovery mode, only download mode

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – My SGS2 was working all morning until I pulled it out of my pants after class today. It was on rooted stock ics, and I have no idea how it could have bricked in the first place. First symptom was a bootloop. Since I wasn't anywhere near a computer, I decided I would just factory reset/wipe data and cache from the recovery. After the phone rebooted, it would not proceed further than the "SAMSUNG" screen. I could not enter recovery mode at this point. I get home and I odin the same stock 4.0.4 ics onto the phone, as well as 4.0.3. As of now, only download mode works. Every time (HowTos)
