Android White Triangle and Yellow Exclamation Mark

I finally got fed up with my slow crappy Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 running Android 1.5 and decided to bite the bullet and flash the firmware to 2.1. In the process I bricked my phone so that it only booted to an white triangle with a yellow exclamation mark in the middle.

Hooray for me. It took me hours to figure out, and I tried half a dozen different ROMs with the same result but in the end I managed to get it working by selecting the following Debug options in Odin:

  • Clear Parameters
  • PDA Format
  • Bootloader Update

I only had to do this once. It's worked fine ever since, although Odin is still as flaky as ever.

Android 2.1 is a huge improvement over 1.5 in terms of performance and usability.

I guess I'd call myself a problem solver. Either that, or I'm some sort of organic machine designed to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I wrote a book. It's okay, I guess. What else? I like reading, swimming, eating, and playing music. Satisfied? Sheesh.
