One part I don't understand is in gtj0's guide, lines 7&8:
7. Force Reboot the phone back into Download mode (Voldown+Home+Power) and restart Odin.
8. The phone should now reboot to a black screen with the pulsing notification LED.U need to install...
He says force the phone into Download mode, and re-start Odin. The very next line says 'the phone should now re-boot'. What happens after line 7 that we needed Odin for?
Update: New DL for update.zip completed late. Just finished final step with the same failure as before:
