Angry [10/13]Brick Station! Here to solve your brickable needs! BOOTLOADERS AVAILABLE!!!

READ EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU TRY THIS! TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK! IT'S NOT MY FAULT IF YOU MESS UP ON THIS AND IT GOES TERRIBLY WRONG FOR YOU!
This works.



I will help anyone whenever possible to solve their problems concerning their bricked players. If you can't get it showing up in Odin3 after the Unbrickable Mod, then I'm sorry I can't help you. Every computer is different. Just try to follow the advice. New links are available, so sorry for those that have requested new links! One of the links also contains the bootloaders for the Galaxy Player! Yay! I've saved all the files onto my computer so if a link goes dead, let me know and I'll put it up. Also, if one of the firmwares doesn't work, also let me know and what you tried doing with it.


IF AND ONLY IF you still can't get your player to boot after following this guide, let me know in the comments section what you did in the format:

1.US or INTL
2.What you flashed, with a link to it,
3.What happened AFTER you flashed the above
4.What your device does currently, eg, download mode, CWM only, partial boot, bootloop, no logo.
5.What you tried doing to solve this problem


If you do not follow this format, I WILL NOT RESPOND.






I had my Samsung Galaxy Player hard bricked and I thought all was lost and I thought I had tried everything but I started looking around for some help and ideas on what I could do to fix this problem.

The first thing I did was follow AdamOutlers guide for getting into recovery mode, and that thread can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1386669

Follow those directions and get back to this thread after you've successfully gotten it into download mode.

#Note: If you can't open the Ressurector, install Java onto your flavor of Linux. Then right-click on the resurrector, hit properties and check the Use as executable box or something similar.

*If you already have it in download mode, skip the first step!*

Okay, now that you have it in download mode, you have to get Odin3 for virtualbox. You don't need virtualbox if you can get it into download mode and if youre running Windows XP or higher. If your running Ubuntu or any other flavor of Linux, Heimdall won't work with the SGP and you're going to need virtualbox. The one I used and that worked can be found by going here: http://www.4shared.com/file/10JA2Dsu...v183.html--You can get virtualbox for Linux by going here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads--YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN COPY OF WINDOWS FOR VIRTUALBOX!!

Once you have Odin3 running either in Windows or in Virtualbox, then go ahead and plug it into a USB port and a yellow box in Odin3 with a COM number should show up. If not, make sure you have the Samsung USB drivers installed in your copy of Windows in Virtualbox. You can get those here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/MOB...s-1560.shtml-- I had a lot of trouble for my laptop to recognize that my player was plugged in and I had other people tell me the same. I think that in Virtualbox there are settings that have to do with USB devices and getting them recognized inside of Virtualbox. If not, someone let me know. So once you get it into download mode using the resurrector, flash this, IT HAS THE BOOTLOADERS NEEDED, NO MORE SCAMMBLE FOR CORRECT BOOTLOADERS!!!!!!!!!!!!--http://www.4shared.com/get/VtAB8dCU/G70JKKE3_STOK_222RU_.html Flash the one with All-Low or something of the sort.

If you can get it into download mode (Pwr+VolDown+Home) then install this with Odin3: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1863004

The first link comes with bootloaders and can get your SGP back up to booting. Once you install that, which is I believe, a Russian Froyo ROM, you must install from the link at the top, which is a stock ROM for us SGP that gets your home button working and is meant for the US variant of the Galaxy Player. It also includes Entropy's Daily Driver kernel and can get you back into CWM if you have a backup available.You need to be in download mode for this too.

BEFORE you install stock though, make sure your Samsung Galaxy Player boots! After that, flash the stock ROM back with download mode using Odin3.



If you have any questions, comments, concerns, feel free to write down below!!


NOTE: I need stock firmware for the 5.0 INTL version, if anyone has it please link it to me and I will post it in the OP.


IF I HELPED YOU, REMEMBER THE THANKS BUTTON!!!!!!!!

If your running Ubuntu or any other flavor of Linux, Heimdall won't work with the SGP and youre going to need virtualbox. The one I used and that worked can be found by typing at google: odin3 1.83 download and clicking the 4shared.com link. You can get virtualbox by typing this in google: virtualbox download. YOU WILL NEED YouR OWN COPY OF WINDOWS!!

Once you have odin3 running either in windows or in virtualbox, and one of the white boxes is yellow and has a COM with a number in it, your're ready to flash the software needed! If you can't get it into download mode maually, then first install this (BIG THANKS TO METICULUS!): http://www.4shared.com/rar/IEAXBGh2/...w-CL10019.html

If you can get it into download mode (Pwr+VolDown+Home) then install this with odin3: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1450013

The first link comes with bootloaders and can get your SGP back up to booting. Once you install that, which is a chinese rom, you must install from the link at the top, which is a stock rom for us SGP that gets your white buttons back up and working! http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1450013 You need to be in download mode for this too.

BEFORE you install stock though, make sure your samsung galaxy player boots into the homescreens! After that, flash the stock rom back into download mode using odin3!

If the stock rom is giving you problems, such as random shutdowns, what you can do is flash meticulus' foreigner rom and the cutsom kernal from Entropy512 using odin3. Flash kernal first then rom.. This solved all my problems. And it looks better than the stock rom and is much faster than stock too!

If you don't like the custom rom and how it looks, you can always try to find a stock rom that works well. Or what I did was i themed my SGP with go launcher which looks really nice.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, feel free to write down below!!

Okay press Alt+T.. Then you should get a purple screen in which you can input text right? Copy these commands one at a time to get Java:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java

[Press ENTER] and wait. After you see your name and it says @Ubuntu then copy/paste this:

sudo apt-get update

[Press ENTER] and wait for the @Ubuntu to show up. Then copy/paste this:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts

Then once you see @Ubuntu again, you're done! You can close the terminal. If you want to open the file as an exe. though, right click on the file, and go to properties or permissions, something like that and click on the box that says that you allow it to run as an exe. or something like that. Hope that helped! THANKS BUTTON!!!

From what I have read and my understanding, you have to install the drivers via virtual box.

On the VM, check if you enabled USB support, and if the device has a checkable box.
Check out my custom kernel for YP-G70
