Default [Q] SGH-T679 Flash Back To Stock via Odin - Not Writing To All Partitions

I am following the wiki instructions to flash an SGH-T679 back to stock firmware using Odin, using the files at the links provided:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...axy_Exhibit_4G

Prior to this, the only thing I did to the phone was to upgrade to AOSP 4.1.2 using stock recovery, which worked fine.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2081011

However Odin does not seem to be writing anything to either the system or preload partitions when I do this (and now the phone will no longer boot past the splash screen). I have tried both Odin 4.43 and 4.44.

I did notice that the key combination to enter the bootloader changed after I ran Odin: it went from Volume Up + Home + Power to just Volume Up + Power.

I have not attempted to repartition or format the internal memory at any point. I am wondering if perhaps the Ancora.ops in the post above does not match the partition table on my device? Or is there something else I should try?

Thanks in advance!

Solved: the Ancora.ops file in uvlg3.odin.zip on the Wiki page is missing the preload partition. I added "12,preload" to the bottom of the file (per arco's Ancora.ops file found by Google -- can't link to it because I'm new to the forum).

Did you use uvlg3.flash2.stock.zip for firmware from the Wiki page? Coz I didnt find this file on the Wiki page.

Look just a few lines below that on the page, where it says:

FILES NEEDED:
Download Odin (Google it) and the stock factory images: uvlg3.odin.zip

I found the file, but after making firmware I see the next: "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Plase select recovery mode in Kies & try again". And there's a mistake: big partition size!!
Where can I find 3-filed firmware for odin?
