I have a Galaxy Mini GT-5570 phone.

Last night I installed "ROM Manager" and tried to partition my SD card. It requires to reboot my phone and I confirmed that, so it shut down my phone. Then it can't boot anymore -- all I get is just a black screen!

Unfortunately, I read that ROM Manager can cause hard brick for Galaxy Mini lately...

I tried all possible solutions found in the Internet but nothing works. So I decided to try the USB JIG method as it can force my phone to boot to download mode. The point is that I can't find 300k resistor then can I try 330k or it's dengerous?

Is there another method to revive my phone back ??


You dont need to rig your usb to enter download mode.

You just need to hold Vol UP + Home then plug your USB cable to your PC.

If you haven't started ODIN in flash mode or did not install bootloader drivers for the Mini, download mode will not show up, and you'll see only a black screen.

  • I've tried that way...Odin can detect my phone but while flashing it stops at "Setup Connection",I've read that maybe problem with Samsung driver but it isn't ! – wisdom Mar 13 '13 at 8:31
  • Have you tried a different USB cable? It might be loose. I had a similar experience with an HTC Legend, the flashing constantly interrupted because of the old cable. – forums Mar 13 '13 at 9:15
  • @Wisdom have you tried it on different computers? – Thomas Vos Jun 26 '15 at 6:48
