Unhappy [Q] Flashing JH2 problems

Alright, I'm pretty uniformed when it comes to these things, but as it stands I need some help. I have a Bell Galaxy S (GT-I9000M) that I unlocked to use on Telus and then rooted a month later in an attempt to trouble shoot a reception issue (don't ask). Trouble shooting failed and now I'm trying to get the circumvent the warranty issues by trying to re-flash back to the stock bell ROM, which is from what I can tell the I9000UGJH2. I downloaded it from (samfirmware). I'm trying to use Odin and am having some troubles. When I extract the file there is only a single .tar file inside (I9000UGJH2-PDA-Kernel-Bootloader-CL490514-Low). As such I am unclear as to what to enter for the PDA/PHONE/CSC fields. I assume this file is the PDA, and inside is the modem file if I look. Do I need to extract this to use in the modem field? I'm so confused.

Also, a couple of things. Ive had 'success' flashing using just the the one file in the PDA field, as well as that plus the modem file found inside extracted and selected in the MODEM field. HOWEVER, in both attempts though it seem to boot into the OS fine, neither recognize my SIM card. Clearly this is some sort of failure. Any suggestions?

Oh, and yes, I can get into download mode. That's the only reason I'm fiddling.

since the phone boots into the OS
and you have the 3 buttons working

you can try flashing it back to stock (JH2) using KIES

and see if you can get it to recognize your Telus SIM card with that.


before you go ahead, do you have friends or family with Fido or Rogers SIM you can try?

just to make sure it's not a Telus SIM card problem

I'm pretty sure I did flash it to the stock JH2. When I plug into kies and search for firmware updates it says there are none. Am I doing something wrong?

maybe if I flash the update prior to JH2? Then it will see it need an update and go to town?

on the registry just change all the JH2 references to JG9

then it will offer you JH2 for "upgrade"

or you can use this

try booting into recovery mode and wipe data + wipe cache

see if it can boot after that
