Thanks jscott30. This made it very easy to get back to stock GB. Of course I flashed a custom ROM right after. All is right in my world now.

Might be because the Infuse 4G isn't the SGS.

These Odin flashable tar.md5 packages contain the stock AT&T 2.3.6 Gingerbread release for the Samsung Infuse 4G with root added.

For those who are interested, there are also rooted options below that have busybox and are deodexed and zipaligned. An option is also provided below that includes CWM recovery and a few extras.

These rooted Odin packages do not contain bootloaders. Have rainbow distortion and want GB bootloaders to fix that? See question 1.) in the FAQ below for an explanation, warning, and link to a separate package that contains and flashes Gingerbread bootloaders.

The first two versions below use the stock UCLB3 kernel and have stock recovery. The third option below uses Entropy's Daily Driver (April 5th, 2012 test kernel with working MHL HDMI out), and includes red CWM recovery. For more information about Entropy512's kernel, go HERE.

INSTALL
--------------

1.) Download Odin from HERE and extract the program from the .zip file.

2.) Download the version you want. Use a program like 7zip to extract the Odin flashable tar.md5 from the .rar file.:

**** OPTION A ****
I997UCLB3-root.rar

Features in this version
- Stock kernel
- Stock recovery
- Rooted

******* OPTION B *******
I997UCLB3-root-deodex.rar

Features in this version
- Stock kernel
- Stock recovery
- Rooted
- Deodexed
- Zipaligned
- Busybox

************ OPTION C *************
I997UCLB3-CWM-root-deodex-extras.rar

Features in this version
- Entropy's Daily Driver kernel
- Red CWM recovery
- Rooted
- Deodexed
- Zipaligned
- Busybox
- AT&T and other bloatware removed
- Scrolling wallpaper fix
- CRT off animation
- 8 lock screens
- Extended power menu
- Accurate battery mod
- Get lidroid's 14 statusbar toggles HERE

************ OPTION D *************
I997UCLB3-CWM-root-deodex.rar

Features in this version
- Entropy's Daily Driver kernel
- Red CWM recovery
- Rooted
- Deodexed
- Zipaligned
- Busybox
- Get extra mods HERE

Want to try some different kernels, like Zen Arcade's Infusion-Z? Odin kernel packages are HERE.

3.) Install Samsung Kies to install the latest Samsung USB drivers. This can be found HERE.

Reboot PC. Then, attach phone via USB, and allow drivers to install.

4.) In recovery, wipe all user data and wipe all cache data, BEFORE flashing. If you don't do this, I can't guarantee that your phone won't loop at the AT&T boot animation, or that you won't have other issues.

Put phone in Recovery Mode (Turn phone off, disconnect USB cable, hold power button and both volume buttons, release power button when Samsung logo appears, continue to hold volume buttons until recovery screen appears.). In recovery, choose and follow prompts for options to wipe user data and to wipe cache data.

5.) Place phone in Download Mode (Remove battery, hold down both volume buttons, replace battery, attach USB cable, and then continue to hold volume buttons until the phone enters Download Mode.).

6.) With phone in Download Mode, open the Odin exe. In Odin, if the phone is recognized, the window under ID:COM will turn yellow.

7.) In Odin, click on "PDA" and browse to the tar.md5.

8.) Select the tar.md5. Make sure it shows up in the PDA window, and then click on Start. Do not power off or disconnect the phone while Odin flashes the package and reboots the phone.

9.) You're finished. You now have stock AT&T 2.3.6 Gingerbread (UCLB3) with root.

NOTES
----------------

a.) If you skipped step 4.) and your phone boot loops at the AT&T boot animation, hold down the power button and both volume buttons until you enter recovery. In recovery, wipe all user data and wipe all cache data. Reboot and the phone will boot into rooted 2.3.6 Gingerbread.

b.) If everything has been done correctly, the Setup Wizard will appear when you first boot Gingerbread. If the phone first boots into Gingerbread, and you don't get the Setup Wizard, go to Settings / Privacy / Factory data reset and choose "Reset Phone".

FAQ
-----------------

1.) I have rainbow distortion in recovery or in the boot animation. How can I get Gingerbread bootloaders to fix this?:

You can download THIS .rar file, extract using 7zip, and flash the tar.md5 package in Odin (use the pda slot). Flashing Gingerbread bootloaders will correct rainbow distortion in recovery and in the boot animation. Only flash these if you are having issues with rainbow distortion, and only if you have had success flashing other, less dangerous items in Odin. If something happens to cause a flash of these bootloaders to fail, then you run the risk of bricking your phone. See THIS post and THIS post for more of an explanation of why bootloaders weren't included in the rooted UCLB3 Odin packages.

2.) Isn't there a way to root stock UCLB3 Gingerbread without flashing these Odin packages?:

Yes. See THIS how-to thread that I put together for an explanation of how to root stock UCLB3.

3.) How do I get CWM recovery if I flashed a version with the stock kernel?:

If you didn't flash Option C with CWM recovery already included, you can flash a custom kernel that includes CWM recovery by using SGS Kernel Flasher on the phone. Find and install SGS Kernel Flasher in Android Market / Google Play Store. Then, place the zImage of a compatible custom kernel that includes CWM recovery on your internal sdcard, and flash using SGS Kernel Flasher. Entropy's Daily Driver, includes red CWM recovery, and can be found HERE.

4.) My phone is displaying something that looks like this: Phone-!-PC. What is this, and can I use these Odin packages from here?

That is still download mode. If you reach that screen, a flash has been interrupted or has failed, and you are in a type of backup download mode. Reset Odin, and start over with your flash. These packages will flash in this mode, just as they will in regular download mode.

ChainsDD for root bits
Entropy512 for his kernel

imnuts for posts on how to create Odin images
Przekret for the Samsung UCLB3 leak
Everyone in the Infuse 4g XDA forum

Hope this helps someone out. Please use this thread for any questions or comments about using the Odin packages. It's okay to ask UCLB3 related questions here also, but remember, I didn't create the firmware. That one is on Samsung / AT&T, and these are just packages provided to make it easier to get root and /or CWM recovery with that firmware.
After i followed all the steps the phone started running slower is their a way i can make it move fast again

Well... this is stock GB firmware with all the finest bloatware and kruft that AT&T and Samsung have to offer. You can root the config, install TiBu and debloat it manually, or you can flash a custom GB rom that is already debloated, or search or reference the OP of same for some ideas on what to remove.. you can also search for optimization tips of which there are many here on XDA - pretty much the whole point of what goes on here.

Or you can continue on to a JB or KK rom, which are designed to run lean and fast out of the box... search and research are your friends.

Umm... Is it supposed to hang at the <ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3).. line? It's been there for about five minutes or so.. This is what is all in the messages box

<ID:0/003> Removed!!
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I997UCLB3-CWM-root-deodex.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..


[EDIT]

I did a little more googling and i learned that i can just pull the cable since it hadn't officially started flashing yet. Restarted the process with ODIN in admin mode and worked like a charm!


Seeings as to the fact that all it's done so far is the MD5Chksum is it too late to abort the flash?
