you're too kind, bro.

I think sf threw you off because he wasn't even on the field yet.

Once he's with the program, his arse is yours.

Hm...so this is what I'm doing: I double click the file. It opens up to Heimdall. I connect my phone in download mode and it says connected in green. Then I hit flash initially when flash bootloaders is still unselectable. Before I had dinner (left after my last post), it was finishing that and failing the first time through. Then I would check the flash bootloaders box and hit flash again. Then it would start up and prompt me to format the USB drivers for the phone. So then after I did that and the driver was winUSB, it just stopped doing anything.
Now after dinner and disconnecting it and restarting without flash bootloaders, it just gets to the driver formatting for the USB slots. So after I format it again just does nothing. And the bottom says "done." Not sure why it's stuck there. I'm so lost Still really appreciating the feedback haha. I can't try a different computer as this is the only Windows machine in my house. This is actually the only USB port that connects even. So what should I do? Something else? Thanks!

Yeah that's exactly what I'm doing. And then it just stops running and says "done" at the bottom. I clicked details and this is what was in there:

So it looks like it disconnects or something after the drivers? Not sure what's supposed to be happening though so I don't know if that helps. Anything else I can try?

Okay so I rebooted and clicked on the one-click again. This time, very different process. First it had me install MSVC+ and then the USB formatting drivers. Then when I was done with that and closed the driver window, the heimdall client itself opened up I hit flash. The first one failed like all the guides said it should have. Then I went ahead and checked the flash bootloaders box and flashed one more time. It got to "Initialising protocol" and has stalled I think. The bottom right corner says "done" and nothing is happening. My phone is still in download mode, showing the yellow triangle with an android sweeping up and it says "Downloading". I'm trying my best to provide you guys with as many details as possible. What would you recommend I do now? :eek:

EDIT: This is what the details part of it said near the bottom:

Checking if protocol is initialised...
Protocol is not initialised.
Initialising protocol...
ERROR: Failed to initialise protocol!

Also, my phone in download mode says the following in the top left corner in white font:
Custom binary download: no
Current binary: Samsung official

Don't know if that makes a difference...

Some extra tips:

1. Try to reinstall Java Run time with the latest one.
2. Turn off Anti Virus and Firewalls.
3. Try on different PC and also use different USB cable.
