Don't panic

 

The White Galaxy S logo will stay for a while because it's loading the new firmware.

 

Take out the battery for 30 seconds, replace and restart

Did you disconnect the USB lead before it had restarted fully?

 

Don't worry...

 

Just turn the phone off and start the process again.

 

Using Odin flash JPY

 

then connect to Kies and do the update.

 

After Kies has updated it can take upto 5 minutes for the phone to start fully.

 

DO NOT DISCONNECT THE PHONE!

 

Once the phone restarts and the Home screen is shown ONLY then disconnect the phone.

 

Don't worry we've all had these moments

The double vibration is a force close, so something didn't install properly.

 

This is what Odin should look like...

Ok not a problem, we need to go backwards to go forwards.

 

It looks like your original Firmware was corrupt. May explain why Kies wouldn't update?

 

So Now we need to Flash JPU 2.2.1 which is a 3 file flash and also a pit file.

This will re-map the layout of the phones firmware correctly, and then the single file JPY will take properly.

JPU Download

 

This is how to load Odin

not a problem shame your not on Google+ we can talk on there but

 you have it do every thing soup has put in the pic

Welcome to the brown trouser club

Leave your usb lead in until the phone comes from the dead

after it boots do a factory reset then repaet the jpy install

it will work this time

now with the time were on you may find kies might offer you the 2.3.6 (it may not its kies)
