Hi all,

Can someone explain or point me in the right direction about how to install any Odin alternative on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 to be precise) and flash stock firmware (multipackage or single package) on Ace GT-S5830i. I unsuccessfully tried "heimdall" but i think it only works for Galaxy S series devices.

Also is it possible to flash stock firmware using CWM Recovery? If yes, then should it be deodexed? and can "any" deoxdexed stock rom be flashed via CWM?

Googling wasn't much of benefit so far, so it would be highly appreciated if someone can help.

First, this should have been in Q&A.

Second, can't you just run odin under wine?

Third, no you can't flash stock firmware through CWM

Thanx for responding.

1. There is no Q&A for 5830i, just for 5830 so i posted my question here instead
2. Wine and even Virtualbox's XP Vm couldn't make odin detect the phone. Maybe coz Wine doesn't work reliably with things that need hardware connections. I am also unable to install Samsung usb drivers in windows 8 release preview 64-bit. I was wondering if there is some software like "heimdall" for other than galaxy-s devices, Or may be any command line method to flash stock rom in linux.
3. I Got it

It's been reported to work on other devices than the Galaxy S, so you can try your luck.

Thanx for responding. I actually already tested it for S-5830i and S-5660 and unfortunately it didn't work. But if you say that it has been reported to work on other than "S" devices, i'll have another shot at it
