Also make sure you actually go to the utilities tab and hit detect. Heimdall is supposed to automatically do this of course but it's given me libusb errors because of that before.

Sorry for the late reply, but I wanted to try flashing the software using another computer that has never had kies, Verizon, or Samsung programs ever downloaded on it, also I disabled firewall and antivirus when trying to flash but I still keep getting

initializing connection...
detecting device
ERROR: failed to access device libusb error: -12

Could it still be a program that I forgot to download or something I forgot to add?
