I've put myself in a bit of a hassle. I think I accidentally flashed the wrong ROM through Odin into my i9000 when being very stressed out, since I couldn't be reached while at work because of a boot loop.

Luckily I got saved by the fact that the OS still boots, thus allowing me to enter recovery or download mode using ADB.

But, I can't enter recovery or download mode using the three button combo anymore, seeing as my current ROM is performing too bad I'm now afraid to flash a new one. If I get stuck in a boot loop now I wouldn't know at all what to do.

TL;DR: What can I flash into my phone using Odin to make the three-button-combo functional again?


EDIT: Would "[ODIN] DarkyROM 10.2 Resurrection GT-I9000" work for me?

Cheers

My phone is already rooted and temporarily using CM9, but will flashing these files provide me with the correct firmware? And by firmware I mean which ever software is on a level low enough to handle key presses before boot.

Thanks

EDIT: From what I've read, it appears as the reason I can't enter download mode probably is because I don't have a primary bootloader. I'll try to flash the version with bootloader included.

I ran into another issue. I can't reboot to Download mode because I can't connect via ADB. I have USB debugging checked but it still won't show up in ADB. "su, reboot download" in Terminal Emulator doesn't do anything either. I have no clue what to try next.

Hmm, so u can't boot into download mode using 3-button combo, if u have root on ur phone download mobile Odin, I haven't used it before but It may be your last hope.

I managed to start the download mode by pressing both volume buttons, and while having done so for about 1s I connected the USB. This brought up a message telling me to press VolUp to get to download mode and VolDown to reboot again. I was stumped by this seeing as nothing happened as I pressed VolUp, I then decided to press VolDown which got me to Download Mode.

I'll try to install XXJVK now. Cheers!

TL;DR: VolUp+VolDown -> Insert USB after about 1s -> Press VolDown even though it tells you to press VolUp

Default odin and download mode problems

hi there
i'm not just a Noob, i'm also very far from being a pro', so all the professional terms mean nothing to me. this is why the forum is very confusing for me...

I got my galaxy S Hebrew OS on it, wich turned out to be a troublemaker. i'ts a phone I bought in china, so it sill has strange chinees notifications no one can understand... and no facebook access, and I can't download skype (it says "skype is not available in your country", even when I had an israeli sim and israeli wifi).

I want to upgrade to Gingerbread (2.3.4), assuming it will erase any sign of the hebrew os, plus improve my phone generally.
I have a guide, odin3 and all the necessary files. when the phone is on download mode, the odin won't recognize the connection. I don't have kies, and when the phone in on ordinary mode there are no connection problems (i'm on "mass storage" in the usb options). I tried it with an israeli sim in, a chinees sim in, and without any sim at all. nothing works. everytime the computer reacts with sound and everything (this sad sound of "i know there's something there and can't connect it"). it's a new laptop with windows 7. I don't have another computer, but I can go to a friend's house if there's a chance win xp would work... should I? are there any other known solutions for this problem?

in addition- do you know (or does anybody know) how can I fix the chinees problems (blocks?) with facebook, skype etc.?

*** i'd be glad to receive answers by mail instead of filling the forum with my stupid questions

thank you anyway
