I was attempting to install ClockworkMod and CynogenMod10 for my phone using odin.

I followed the steps listed here

http://nguyenkieuhung1984.blogspot.in/2012/02/odin-how-to-upgrade-samsung-galaxy-551_01.html

And used 5.0.2.6_CWM_recovery_Gingerbread_willing.tar (Admittedly this was stupid since my phone was running froyo, But I wasn't able to find the froyo build for this, the links are all dead.)

And now I think I'm hard-bricked. Neither adb, nor odin, nor Linux can see/recognize the device.

I've already tried a list of things - power+home+Volume-up (Nothing happens, flashes at the samsung screen and stays there) - Power+W (Takes me to little kernel mode, still no detection by any of the tools) - Power+T (same result as power+Home+Vol-up) - Power+Q (") - Power+A (")

Any Idea what can be done here? I'm absolutely running out of ideas about what to do. Any help is appreciated.

If you can't access neither recovery mode nor download mode then you won't be able to recover the phone. –  Peter Mar 5 '13 at 8:03
    
No recovery is possible in anyway? –  ffledgling Mar 5 '13 at 8:06
    
Take it to a shop that can actually recover your handset via JTAG. –  t0mm13b May 27 '13 at 13:47
    
@t0mm13b I've taken it to the official Samsung store and they said they can't do it and will have to replace the motherboard. (I guess they can't flash their motherboards). I read about JTAG but I don't know of a shop in my area (or even state/country) that can do this. :/ –  ffledgling May 29 '13 at 12:54
    
Google around on ebay or somewhere - it may need to be posted abroad to get it JTAG'ged to revive it. No can do! –  t0mm13b May 29 '13 at 15:18

turn it off and then, when you are turning it on press power + q in same time.

Please read the question again. I've already stated that it has no effect. –  ffledgling Mar 27 '13 at 9:25

Odin, firmware, no battery no usb cord, put the battery on, power+e for 10 seconds, connect to pc, and odin maybe will recognize it.
