If you have installed voodoo before, please follow the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=804784 before attempting to restore back to stock odin files

ONLY FLASH ONE OF THESE AT A TIME. START WITH THE /SYSTEM ODIN AND WORK YOUR WAY DOWN THE LIST IF NEEDED.

Hey guys, after some reading and bricking one device beyond my repair, i have created a file to restore /system back to stock, with su, superuser and busybox already installed.

THIS SHOULD ONLY BE USED TO RESTORE TO STOCK AFTER A COMPLETE FUBAR! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU FLASH TO YOUR PHONE!

You need the samsung drivers for windows for this to work. Those can be found on this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=779238

This has been tested and verified. I signed with md5 and odin reads the md5 signature as it should.

Steps:
1. Pull battery from device
2. Open odin on desktop
3. Hold volume down button and plug device into computer
-This will place the device into download mode
4. Verify device shows up in odin
5. Click "PDA" button in odin
6. Select "Stock-i500-VZW-System.tar.md5" from where you downloaded it
7. Click "Start"
8. Enjoy your fixed /system partition!

Download:
Odin: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Odin%...in3%20v1.3.exe
Odin Restore file for /system: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Odin%...System.tar.md5
Odin Restore file for kernel: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Odin%20Files/Stock-i500-VZW-Kernel.tar.md5
Odin Restore file for recovery: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Odin%...covery.tar.md5
PIT file for use in Odin Restores: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Odin%...00-VZW-pit.pit

Big thanks to lilinser / dkcldark; koush; humancyborg, namebrandon, geeknik, and many others that were testing and constantly flashing their phones!

And without ludeboy, well, i wouldnt even be able to get into download mode to fix my phone in the first place

Changelog:
9/17/2010- Updated links, fixed md5 errors on files

9/15/2010: Added an odin restore file for the kernel and recovery now that sources are out. This should be used to restore the kernel if you try flashing another one. To those having problems, reboot into recovery (power off device, hold both volume buttons and power until samsung logo, release power button, recovery should boot) and wipe data and cache.

Thanks angel! Was afraid to start experimenting with the Fascinate until an Odin restore was available.

Has any one got this to work, Every time I try odin finishes and passes and then I replace the battery and phone hangs at verizon for a few minutes and then screen goes black and no longer responds. I thought it might be part of the process so i let is sit for 30 min and nothing.

I got this working last night after I screwed up my phone editing the browser.apk file. The whole process took about 2 minutes to complete, however I don't see superuser and it doesn't appear that I have root

Did the same thing with Email.apk on day two with the phone trying to get multiple Exchange accounts like just about every other android device (Thanks TW!!! ). I was able to get it replaced but have been afraid to do anything beyond rooting and adding WiFi Tether until I had a way to un-brick.

Thanks angel!!!
