after the phone bricked it shows an ! in a yellow triangle image signature verify fail! your boot/recovery image may have an incorrectsignature.please update your image to a signature official one. you can remove battery for power down. i am able to get it into a solid pink screen but i must remove the micro sd.i have also (many many many hours) tried bootloader , odin and if i werent so broke , i wud try a trash compacter. ( not to fix but 2 make me feel a bitof tension released.) i also tried by making a jig asyou could use on a galaxy. no good either. i will be getting a new (much better) phone but that doesnt satisfy the hole this is eating in me. thanks so very much in advance to the android superhero that can rectify my wrongs!!
