Hello all.

Heimdall won't recognize my phone. I've uninstalled and reinstalled USB drivers through Add/Remove programs. I've uninstalled the Samsung Composite Drivers through Device Manager and when I put the phone in Download Mode it reinstalled the drivers, but Heimdall still doesn't recognize my phone.

Odin recognizes my phone right away.

I've read that Odin and Heimdall don't play very well together. How do I properly uninstall the USB drivers to clear the "reservation" by Odin so Heimdall could recognize my phone.

I plugged my phone on my wife's computer and Heimdall recognized it even without USB drivers installed!! So I was able to flash Heimdall on my wife's computer.... So obviously it's an Odin/Heimdall conflict problem.

Help plz thank you

Odin was just in the folder, I don't recall ever installing it, it's just an executable file that I ran. All the other steps I have done.
