Default OSX, Uploading PIT failed - workaround

I tried 1.3.2 and OSX 10.7.3 and ran into the uploading PIT failed issue when trying to flash with Heimdall.

I rolled back to 1.3.0 and it seems to work fine - give it a shot in case you also run into this issue.

yep, or you could rip the package apart and only flash the kernel.

leaked from my ICS- FUSED SGS I897 contaminating you via XDA app.
SGS I897 info: ROM-Is Here Kernel-(custom The Collective built) Modem-same...

I'm not always logged on, just to lazy to log off

xda is not your personal mechanic. You broke it! You fix it! Tho we will be glad to offer advice

My uncle was trying to update his Galaxy S via Kies in Windows and the update failed while installing and he was left with a brick, could only boot into download mode while holding down vol down and power buttons or yellow sign with exclamation if only pressing power.

So he gave it to me to unbrick and I use a Mac so I downloaded Heimdall and XXJVU (2.3.6), device was detected by Heimdall and so I proceded with loading that package and this is what I got:

Code:
ERROR: Failed to confirm end of PIT file transfer!
PIT upload failed!
Ending session...
Rebooting device...
The screen went black and now the phone is completely dead, I've tried removing the battery, the USB cable, and different combinations of either or plugged in while holding down various combinations of buttons and cannot get the phone to show any signs of life whatsoever.

Uncles phone was a SGS Captivate from Rogers Canada and prior to his failed update it was running 2.2 Froyo

*UPDATE: Pulled battery and removed cable for several minutes, also pressed the power button and held it in for a minute to discharge any remaining power...replaced battery and held vol down + power button and I'm back in download mode

Had that happen to me also. I'm sure there is a cleaner way to success, but what worked for me was to install a different version of heimdall. At this point I have two versions of heimdall on my Mac. I need to install one of then for One-Clicks and the other for non-One-Click versions. Can't remember which works for which, but its probably different for each Mac anyway.

Edit: btw I literally had the same exact error message!

@Bobby look 5 posts above yours!

I'm running heimdall on my Mac and have successfully flashed my infuse in the past but can't get it to work on my galaxy tab plus (p6210). I've tried versions 1.3.0 and 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 All with the same exact results. Heimdall detects a device but fails to claim interface. Still works on the infuse (I checked). Anybody have a thought to share regarding this?
Btw: I've seen a thread for heimdall packages for the p6200 so I'm pretty sure there is a way to get it working for the p6210 as well.

In attempt to help add to the device support for Heimdall, I finally setup my system so I could capture Odin USB traffic for the SGH-T989. I captured traffic for a full system "stock" flash of the UVKL1 ROM, (2.3.6), and traffic for just a "root" image flash of CWM, and then uploaded them to sendspace. So to the extent they are useful, they're at;

SGH-T989-odin-stock-flash.xz (292.46MB)
Description: Compressed Wireshark USB Log from Odin Flash of Stock SGH-T989 ROM

SGH-T989-odin-root-flash (6.18MB)
Description: Wireshark USB Log from Odin Flash of Root CWM Image on SGH-T989

For some reason, the sendspace links don't automatically download the file if you just click on them. However, if you hold down Ctrl and click the link, the download page will open in another window or tab, and you can download the file there. Also if they're incorrect or incomplete, please feel free to let me know, and I can try and redo them.

Thanks for Heimdall..
