By request, I'm posting linux binary for my fork of Heimdall that seems to work on the Galaxy Player 5.0 USA:

http://www.mediafire.com/?lkwd4a4yo66k7at

It's just the heimdall binary, compiled on Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit. Recommend to install the latest released .deb to get all the dependencies worked out and then overwrite the /usr/bin/heimdall with this version. I don't have a Mac or Visual Studio to be able to compile Mac or Windows binaries..

Source is here:

Time to update my flashing instructions.

Thanks for finding the fix! Heimdall's sources have always been voodoo black magic to me.

Thanks! I primarily use 64bit Linux, but on occasion I have to use an OS X machine at school.

Here's the binary for Mac OS X Lion. Users just need to be sure to have libusb 1.0 (methinks, maybe not).

Hey guys... if you can post a Windows binary and a linux64, I can fork Heimdall One-Click for use on the Galaxy Player. This way you guys can make one-click back-to-stock packages or one-click custom kernels.

However, you guys should contact Benjamin Dobell here on the forums to merge the changes upstream.

That would be a great idea. I'm always fearful not to be able to go back to stock.

Does anyone have other samsung devices they can test this heimdall on? It works better for galaxy players, but I'd like to make sure it doesn't break other things before merging.

I can try kernel flashing on my GS2 tomorrow.

Just thought I'd let you guys know that I am on it.

I've been quite busy lately so haven't had a lot of free time to properly investigate. I don't want to release a potentially breaking change (for non-Galaxy Player devices). So I'm trying to further investigate what the "partitionType" actually is by reverse engineering the bootloaders.

I've just officially released Heimdall 1.3.2 which addresses the issue. Heimdall should now be good to go with Galaxy Players!
