Afternoon guys, I did some browsing and searching and cannot seem to find a way to fix this, so here goes:

Samsung Galaxy S i500, Showcase with Cellular South.

It is rooted, with the original ROM/Kernel.

Yesterday, I was attempting to follow XDA's guide on getting ClockWorkMod on it ( and when I finally got the final command to work, the phone rebooted, and has since been doing VERY little.

Power Button = SAMSUNG... No vibrate, No change.
Vol Up/Down + Power = SAMSUNG... No vibrate, word flashes, release power (steps to enter recovery or download), SAMSUNG screen remains. Still no vibrate or anything.
Plug in = Grey battery with "loading" circle with no animation of any kind. It is charging though.
Plug in + Vol for recovery/download mode = still just grey Battery not moving.

In all attempts, I have left it trying for anywhere between 30 mins to 4 hours... I cannot get to anything but those 3 results. (samsung, samsung w/ 1 flash, and grey battery).

If I can get it into Download, I can Odin it, or recovery to reset to factory... but I need to get to one. Any and all help is appreciated.

not familiar with that phone, but if the correct button combinations to enter recovery/download mode are not working then you may need a special hardware cable to reset the phone (as is the case with Galaxy S i9000)
