You clicked a few buttons and learned how to operate your computer and device.

I find your statement about giving you a few things to try offensive. We developed the damn solution which Samsung would otherwise charge you for a new board.
Well... I certainly did not intend on offending anyone... Especially being helped by your guide... I'm not sure why you got upset but the fact is, I had to try a few different guides to get my player working again. Call it an user error but it seems from these boards there are others that have hard time following guides... Regardless of you considering them simple and thorough. I simply wanted to share my experience and if by me pointing out few areas that I found confusing or not as clear... I guess my mistake. If you are so arrogant and can't take or don't like others from adding to your posts, why do you even bother?
Thanks anyways... For helping me partially...

Welcome to Dev. Last time I checked, he helped you out completely. Without this method, you would be SOL. They are simple. Follow them step-by-step, and you will have no problems. Heck, you don't even need the Windows bit if you use Heimdall under Linux (Bootloader restore under 64bit Debian, tested). Nothing is being added to the original post by your "Derp, I dun goofed" comment. Why does he bother? Because he's awesome, simply put.

Now, to make this post worthwhile. Tested and worked under 64bit Debian, using Heimdall instead of Odin.
On indefinite hiatus.

Hmm... I really don't understand why people are taking offence to my simple post about my experiences in un-bricking my device...

One... The last thing I wanted was to offend the OP... Afterall, I used his guide to fix my issues...
Two... Not everyone on this threads are Devs... if anything, far from it... most are average users looking to get tips and tricks... and often times step-by-step guides to unlock some of the "cool" things their devices can do. I, certainly am not a Dev...and I will not even pretend to be one.
You talk about using tools that, as an average owner of these devices, are not too familiar with. Even though I have played with Linux boxes in the past, until recently (to fix my SGP), I did not even have Linux loaded on any of my PCs... and never thought of needing to use it...
So, if you would, please... open your eyes and read what people are saying on these "Dev" forum threads... it might seem simple to you... and as you said... "Derp, I dun goofed"... is what a lot of the users, like myself, have to go through in order to "learn" the "simple" process of flashing and generally messing around with the devices.
So, like I said... sorry, if I came across as being offensive... the simple fact that I wanted to share my "average user" experiences in using this guide was just "too much" of a bore and offensive to "super-duper" users such as yourself.
I have never seen this much of hostility from devs for simply sharing experiences for using their "hard work"... but if that is how you see things... I guess that is up to you...

BTW... it's often not the Devs that are "hostile" to "noobs"... on the contrary... they are usually quite helpful. It's the by-standers that always have a choice comment or two to throw at every "dumb" questions and "simple" mistakes people usually make... go figure... just my observation from these forums... and please... not looking for rebuttal... have a wonderful day...

Can you create a heimdall package of the entire firmware you used? I can make a heimdall one-click to automate installation of all related firmware with my Heimdall One-Click project. If you can create a heimdall package from Heimdall Frontend, I can add in the proper bits.

It must be a full Heimdall flash including IBL+PBL, SBL, SBL2, PIT, SYSTEM, MODEM, Kernel(zImage), recovery (same file as kernel), and if possible, Data and Cache.
Flash with Odin on Windows, Linux and Mac. Use JOdin3, Available in a web browser or offline

I would be willing to pull every partition from my device to make a 4.0 usa package, except I have one question.. Is there a specific way to dump the bootloaders? Is it just a "dd" command, with any block size (e.g. 4096)?

BS just speeds up the operation. that's the basic way to do it, but the wrong way to get an official firmware. Also, bootloaders cannot be pulled this way because they will kill your device. We need an official package.

Thanks. But as of now there isn't an official package for the 4.0 US. There is one for the INTL, but with those bootloaders you can't use the combos to enter download mode or recovery on a US player.

Plug it in the computer and try reboot (10 seconds hold). If the computer doesn't even recognize it as "SPC5110" (hope I got that right) I don't think there's a solution
