Hmmm....is it possible to get the phone back in recovery by pressing volume down + big center button + power?

If you can get into recovery you arent bricked.

Try it and let me know what happens.

Ok great. If you can get into recovery, you have 2 options:

1. Reflash the ROM from your SD card.
2. If you dont have the ROM on your sd card, redownload it on your computer, and from recovery, go to "toggle usb". You can then drag and drop the rom from your pc to your phone, and then reflash it.

Let me know what happens.

Ahhh ok..I see your problem. You need to go to the samsung site and download a program called Samsung Kies. It should allow the pc to see the computer. If thats not the issue, try to connect the phone to a different PC and see if its able to read it. That way you ll know if its a driver problem.

If it works on another pc, download the ROM you need and drag it onto the phone from there. Remember, from recovery you will need to go to "mounts and storage and then go to "mount USB storage" for the pc to see the phone.When you are done, unmount it. If you dont do this, the pc cant see your phone. Then wipe data/factory reset -wipe cache partition, then go advanced options and wipe dalvik cache. After that flash the ROM and then reboot the phone. First boot will take a few min, so be patient and wait 10 or 15 min for it to boot.

Keep me updated!
