Exclamation Warning about ODIN Packages and Such

I have heard of a lot of reports from people that loose functionality of their radio and even more drastic problems after flashing some ODIN packages...

Now, i don't know which ODIN package is responsible, i know that bubby323 did make a faulty package, somewhere down the line..

ODIN is a last resort... Us here can get you up and working most of the time without even having to open up... ClockWorkRecovery is our friend

If you absolutely need to ODIN, What i suggest is going into the package with 7-zip, and checking whether or not there is a modem file... if there is, delete it... That's just my advise

Also, i have had a couple of reports of people getting fried from with CWM.... As of right now, i would tread lightly in there.... Backups and Restores should be fine, but don't do anything crazy in there :P If you do need to do anything does not require edify (3.0+) scripting, i suggest using the blue recovery...

This is all just my own personal opinions and such, do whatever you want

How about trying a wipe first? Then if that doesn't work, then i can get you up and working through Clock Work... Get into the IRC #Samsung-Continuum so that i can help you better

Used the method we use on the Fascinate and got it rooted again. Did a wipe and she fired up. Odin clockwork, booted to recovery, applied update.zip, flashed superuser zip file. I think that's right. I was do frustrated I can't recall lol

Fascinate CM7 or MIUI depending on the mood!
