So I have got a galaxy chat b5330 phone.I was searching for a working method to root my phone.
I think I have found one method, it requires me to 1. copy a .zip file on sdcard 2.go to download mode 3.from odin, click PDA and select a recovery.tar.md5 file.
I am using Ubuntu and Sadly Odin(via Wine) is not recognising my phone in download mode.
Then I tried JOdin, but even more sadly, it says that it needs newer version of java.So i got java.But it stll says I need newer version of java.
Then I got Heimdall, but it's totally different than Odin.
Please tell me what to do so that Odin will detect my phone.
Or how can I do the same via heimdall(frontend).
I am not going to get M$ crapware just for rooting my phone.Whatever I do, I'll do it on My Ubuntu PC(I can use some other *nux or BSD).
BTW the tutorial I'm following is similar to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2107029 , actually
EDIT:- I have somehow got JOdin3 working, but the **F Reset Time** option is grayed out.Can you tell how to get the option back?
