It worked. I am rooted now.
However, the yellow triangle will not disappear. It is not something that bothers me a lot.
But out of curiosity, why is that? I flashed the KI8 that was on the thread above.

Thank you

Yes of course the triangle is being displayed. You flashed a non stock kernel. There are two ways to get rid of it.

1) Buy or make a reset jig. This will remove the triangle and reset the flash counter.

2) Use the method described here. This will remove the triangle but will not reset the flash counter.

EDIT: Just to be clear, the rest jig only works if you use roms from Intratech with the old bootloader added. I don't know how to remove the triangle or even if it's possible for the new bootloaders as I haven't studied that yet.

Thanks again man!
I will try that later on. It is not an urgency to me. But it is good to know it can still be removed when this triangle starts anoying me.

Regards and thanks again!

Hello!

I want to flash a stock rom for my GSII on linux.I've insalled heimdall 1.3.1 and the frontend version of HEIMDALL.

My problem is that if I browse the xxxx.tar file (the rom file contains everything) it starts to extract and decompress it and then...

It says it doesn't finds the frimware.xml

My question is how to get a correct firmware.xml or how to make easily a firmware.xml and where to put in the .tar file?

Happy flashing!

If you've had trouble flashing certain partitions on your SGS2 in the past then that should no longer be the case! Have fun.

Benjamin,

Thanks for the upgrade from your great tool!
However it looks like there is a little bug in the newest version
If you do heimdall print-pit on linux 32bit you end with a segmentation fault, after restarting your phone you get the computer phone screen. With the heimdall close-pc-screen your phone will boot normaly.
Tested on a sgs-i9000

I'll paste here the log files from version v1.3.1 and v1.3.2
Version v1.3.1 http://pastebin.com/tSZGA3KZ
Version v1.3.2 http://pastebin.com/MQs798i8

Hmm, I'll definitely take a look. However, I do all my testing on GT-I9000 and GT-I9100 (because they're the only devices I own) and I didn't encounter this.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Without problems with Ubuntu 11.10 64bits, heimdall 1.3.2 and my i9100.

PIT is printed fine and without segment fault error->pc-screen.

Arrow error: -12

Any help? Also, Odin does not see my phone!


same here. In my case it is because I plugged in a Sam Galaxy Y, which is not supported.

I then switched back to the old driver instead of libUSB, and ODIN recognized the phone again.

To flash new kernels (boot.img), we usually just dd them to /dev/bml7 after bmlunlock, which can be done while mobile.

it would be very interesting to see a valid PIT file printout. can s.o.please post one ?
