edenLOL:K1000716: From memory odin is a samsung in-house development tool while kies is their consumer tool. Not sure what happened with your flash but I'd try downloading the files again and re flash it.
I'll try it. In the mean time, can anyone tell me how to get into recovery mode?
Presuming it's like the SGSI. Press and hold the Volume UP button, with the home button and the power button. When the boot up screen appears release all buttons.
And then you can use ADB Shell as well but that's a whole bunch of other technology and I'm not the right person to pretend I know how that works.
