[TUTORIAL] How to flash back to a Stock ROM! (@mod: Sticky idea?)
This is an basic how to for reflashing a Stock-ROM.
I made this so the newbies can reflash their phone to stock after trying out any other awesome ROM.. And to prevent these questions in the threads!
- Original Samsung Cable
- Odin V4.43 (Click me!)
- AriesVE.OPS (click me!)
- Samsung Drivers installed ( Download and install Samsung KIES!)
STEP BY STEP GUIDE
You have downloaded Odin and AriesVE.ops (Yes?)
Great, lets get started!!!
First: Open the taskmanager on your computer (ctrl+alt+del). Go to "Processes" and search for:
Note: Samsung KIES has been updated to version 2.5
Close all of these...
Next: Download your ROM ( for stock ROM go to Samfirmware.com and make an account and search for GT-I9001
) Download the correct ROM ( it is an .zip file so unzip it, if it's password protected the password could be samfirmware.com )
You can also download from here: http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9001#
For an easy way check this list: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2002171
(ŠOuterh3aven) here you can find every stock rom atm availeble.
Then: Open Odin, if your computer is running on Windows 7 or Vista select Odin and press the right mouse button in and select "Run as Administator"
Then: In odin select "One Package". In the line OPS you have to put AriesVE.ops, so click browse and search for the file.
Then on the bottom of Odin you'll see "One package" Select the StockROM you just downloaded.
Then: Turn off your phone and turn it on in Download mode ( Volume Down + Home + Power) and connect your phone to the computer.
You'll notice a yellow square with COMM(3)! and in the log you'll see Detected!! and Added!!
Simply pres START and grab a beer
Your phone will reboot in recovery to finisch the job. After this it will reboot again and your phone is back to Stock. This proces takes time so be patience!!
- Stock so you have your warranty back
- Stable (only the launcher is not stable.. :P)
- Full with bloatware
- No root and not able to use apps which require root
- No theming
- No OTA
- No ICS or JB
Some things that can happen during flashing:
- Odin gets stuck at Setup connection!!
> Just remove phone (you'll see FAIL!! dont worry!) remove battery for 10 sec and try again..
- Hang at boot
> Remove battery, turn your phone on in recovery and wipe cache and wipe data/factory reset
-Odin is not responding
> Dont do anything!!! Wait and see what happens!
When the flashing process gets stuck at System.img.ext4 download. Try it again for at least 2 times.
If that doesnt work for you. Flash BroodROM RC5.
You'll wonder why
Well, for some reason it fixes the partitions and after the installation of BroodROM RC5 your phone will reboot succesfully.
Hit thanks if you think it's usefull!!
