[Q] ODin is ALWAYS stuck in 'SetupConnection' no matter what.
I have tried everything on my wife's I9001 but I cannot get Odin to get past SetupConnection.
Here is a picture:
I have tried:
Redownloading Odin 1.3 and 1.85 and also tried using Multi Downloader 4. (Which says that the .md5 file isn't supported).
Changing USB ports.
Using a Jig to boot Download mode.
Booting into Download mode normally.
Installing MobileODin except that I9001 is not supported.
Trying to flash a different rom other than 'I9001XXKQ1_I9001XXKPI_I9001DBTKP1_HOME.tar.md5'
Rebooting the computer over 9000 times.
Rebooting the phone over 9000 times.
Pulling the battery over 9000 times.
Reinstalling the drivers from Kies.
Turning USB Debugging mode off (was worth a try)
Using a different computer.
Reinstalling my OS (seriously, I had to do that anyway)
Leaving the phone plugged in for 30 minutes anyway just to see if it was working but not updating.
I am unable to boot into 'Recovery Mode' also the phone sh!ts itself and boots into 'RAM Dump' instead... where it requires a battery pull to reboot. So I can't even put the rom file on the internal memory and use recovery mode to flash it from there...
Basically nothing works at all. Odin 1.35 fails, Odin 1.85 fails, Multidownloader fails. I have tried rebooting, restart, and re-bloody everything I can. I have no idea why it won't get past setup connection. I've even tried using my second USB cable. It used to work fine, I used to be able to flash the phone fine.
Kies is NOT running in the background... there are no processes open or anything. I have googled and yahooed and everything to find a solution to this. NOTHING works..
Please help. I need to flash this dhfshfgdshgfshs phone as soon as possible. It's not working properly and it's really unstable..
If someone has any suggestions I am so willing to hear them..
Thanks a lot. - From a really frustrated dude
