In short the partitioning appears to be different between some of the ROMS. So is it possible to find the pit files that are connected to each ROM?

Did you try with ODIN, keeping flagged the re-partition option?

He's actually the 2nd person to have that issue... It tends to make me believe that Chinese phones have some sort of restriction on flashing...

The .PITs are not different. I believe what's different is the hardware itself. Even though both are I9100G, the Chinese phones seem to have some sort of restriction...

Also, maui, I'm going to upload the files at around 22PM GMT, they'll be up at that time

Default i9100G ROMS seem to all have different pit files

Got past that by going back to Chinese stock, then flashing the Supertamos Kernel and ROM, maybe it is some kind of flag that Odin picks up from the Chinese ROM. No biggie just one big pain in the ###

It doesn't boot into download mode at all?

The only solution now is a JTAG...
