    hey friend...

    The reason for this problem is that sometimes there are few hindrences which occur during the process and also can occur after the process which makes the updation process fail and then damage the phone like you said its not turning off ..

    The common reasons for the fact that your phone is not turning on after the updation process are :

    - Power failure in phone while update is going on .. So , the process gets stuck in the middle and hence damages the phone

    - Software being updated contains bugs in it ..

    - Wrong way of updating the firmware

    If you want that no problem occur and your phone also remains safe then follow the below steps :

    - Make sure that there is full battery in your phone and no power failure occur and then update the phone again

    - Only update with the software when you are completely satisfied with the fact that it is safe

    - First check for the correct update process and then continue

    If you follow these steps there is no possibility that your phone will not turn on after the update process ...

    thanks

    While flashing the firmware it is advised to have at least of 75% of battery backup..
    you should not interfere while it is being flashed..
    its highly suggested that do not interfere..
    if you did interfere, or switch off the phone in between.. or due to other reasons your flashing is interrupted..
    then you need to go to nearby Service center to get your phone fixed..
    You should only flash the devices with the firmware provided by the manufacturer only..
    it is trusted one..

    Hi,
    Please make sure that you have not run out of battery in the phone as that might be a reason for the phone not turning ON so charge the phone for some time and try to boot into recovery if that is not happening then try booting into download mode that can be done by pressing "Power+volume Down+home" by pressing this your phone should enter into Download mode if that is not happening and then screen is not even turning ON then you have successfully bricked your phone so throw it in the Dustbin. If the phone gets into Download mode then connect the phone to a PC and fire Up "Odin" in a PC and install a full stock firmware or a recovery using the "Odin" software so that your phone will boot and then again next time install a Firmware from the phone I9003 and not I9000.
    Hope this helps.
