Post UK Galaxy S Help please?

Basically, in all of my wonderful wisdom, decided to try and root my Galaxy S thinking it would be a similar process as to that of the HTC Desire on the ground that I was sick of the way Orange have changed the phone.

Several methods here didn't work so I decided to play about with Odin. I ended up in a boot loop and have now managed to install a US T-moblie OS for a Vibrant handset. Does anyone have any idea how to rectify this horrific balls up? Or where I can get a UK OS from to put back on it? Also I have failed to root the phone.

Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave. What have you done?

Don't worry mate, check out the ezbase thread in development section. Full instructions and downloads included. Should sort you right out.

Happy flashing.

So far so good, just lacking the room as I have no idea what I should download.

Any idea?

Probably best to go for rom kitchen jvh - stable, customisable and great help from the users in the thread. Once you've a bit more experience with sgs flashing, then insanity all the way.

Hope it all goes well mate.

Edit: dave, have you flashed the gingerbread base rom from the ezbase thread yet?

I couldn't tell you where I'm at. All I've done is follow the steps, downloaded EZOdin V1.70 and this;

Repartition is not mandatory, but it does not hurt to repartition the phone.

Start Phone in Download Mode (No Cable Attached)
Open EZOdin.
- Check Re-Partition
- Select EZbase.pit as PIT
- Select EZbase-PDA-XWJS3.tar.md5 as PDA
- Select EZbase-PHONE-XXJVE.tar.md5 as PHONE
- Select EZbase-CSC-XXJV1.tar.md5 as CSC

checked everything it says and pressed start. The message box is up to;

<ID:0/007> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/007> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!

and has been that way for a good 10 minutes.

I think that's the froyo 2.2.1 ezbase base. On the first page, there should be a jvb (I think) ezbase download.

10 minutes is too long, pull battery, disconnect usb, close ezodin, reopen, re-add files, go to dl mode on phone, connect usb, wait for yellow light in ezodin, press start.

Dave, if you want to pm me your home number, i can call you to talk you through it.

Worst case scenario is a flash of eclair jm9 - will sort 99% of snags.
