I could really use some help. Quick story, I was at a wedding today and I pulled my phone out of my pocket only to see the Google logo (I'm unlocked). I thought that was odd, but figured maybe it was a random reboot. Happens, right? But it never actually rebooted. I left it on that screen for maybe half an hour. Then I pulled the batter thinking my latest ROM was acting up so I would just flash back to my last nandroid. Only after pressing Vol+;Vol-;Power I got... nothing. Blank screen. Later, I could see that the LCD was actually powered up (I could see a faint light) on the Fastboot screen but nothing was actually showing. I could, however, use Vol-;Power and see the Odin Mode screen. But if I choose "Start" I go back to the Google logo and then it never boots. Crazy! I pulled the battery and just stuffed it back in my pocket until I could get home and try out ADB.

So I got home, plugged it in and booted it up. No matter what mode I try it won't show up in ADB. I tried the Google screen, I tried the blank screen after the vol+-power and tried the Oden Mode that I could see. None of them will let me use Fastboot or any ADB commands.

I've been searching for over an hour now and haven't found a solution. So, I'm asking now. I'm not a super-user but I'm no n00b for sure. I just don't know what to do now. I can't flash a factory image because I can't get the device to show up in ADB and fastboot. What could I be missing?

Thanks for reading my story.I hope it gives you enough info for ideas on how to help. Some final info:

Model: Toroplus rooted and unlocked
ROM: Last CM Nightly (11/16/12)
Recovery: ClockworkMod 6.0.1.5
I'm seeing three screens. Google, What I think is supposed to be Fastboot and the Odin Mode. Not 100% sure on the terms there, sorry.

You aren't able to restore from odin?

Edit: here is a link to the Odin files for toroplus. http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=25323328

You can't get into recovery? Do power and vol +/- and if it looks like the screen is on do vol down twice and then power to see if recovery comes up.

Arg! Sorry, I didn't get any notifications that there had been replies to this thread. Yes, I did find the Odin info, thanks calripkenturner. Tried that Barf and a no go. I couldn't access recovery at all. Took it in and got it replaced. Apparently the bootloader partition was totally shot.

Thanks for the help. Problem solved (through replacement).

I'm in this exact boat. Normally with samsung phones there is a pit file to help re-partition the device via Odin. I've been searching everywhere for a toroplus.pit file that could help fix my phone. I can't get into fastboot or recovery only odin. Each stock odin file I try fails at the radio-cdma.img and wont flash. I've tried the SimpleDownloaderTools from sprint for the phones and they fail as well. please oh rootz wiki elite and gods throw a suggestion to me as to what else to try. Pretty desperate to get this phone back on it's feet.
