Heimdall/Ubuntu/Epic
Hi, I have an Epic 4G and I am just not getting heimdall to recognize my device at all. I have a mac, which is apparently not able to talk to my EPIC via USB. And I have an Ubuntu laptop, which can, but not in download mode. I do not have windows, I removed windows from my laptop.

`adb devices` only recognizes my phone when it's in usb debug mode and not in download mode. `heimdall devices` returns 'failed to detect compatible download-mode device.

this is very frustrating because all i need to freaking do is root my device. everything else seems simple. but these $@#^ing phone companies need to step off and realize that i bought this hardware - it is mine and i should be able to do whatever i please. even if it means removing their stupid NASCAR app. really? a @$#^ing nascar app.

To get Heimdall working check out post 2 in this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1052813

Then you would have to adapt it to install the kernel to allow root.

Hey guys I just rooted my Epic and I was looking through all the stuff on here and was wondering if it was all up to date and still compatible with my Epic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No, qbking77 has not updated this thread in awhile. His latest videos can be found directly on youtube by googling what you are looking for, for instance How to root the Samsung Epic on EL30. He also has a channel on youtube with a list of all his vids. He is just so busy doing so many vids for so many phones (how does he do it?) that I imagine keeping up with all the threads would be quite difficult.

Oh I see that makes perfect sense and yes now that I think about it all (at least most) the videos I watched on messing with my phone were his from what I remember. But thanks for the info I'm gonna check out his YouTube channel now

Take care.

qbking77 I have only one thing to say abut you. You are a demigod of Samsung phones All I have right now is root access with the stock Samsung OS, with of course a couple of bloatwares removed, but I'm really thinking of installing the same stuff you guys here have and these videos are user friendly even for a person lie me who still knows what a stamp is

This is why qbking77 is the single most important person to this community... if my niece can root and flash roms on her phone by just watching his videos anybody can... keep in mind this is the girl who still can't figure out the guide on the cable box! Lol
