Download mode and Odin
I just got my samsung focus and I came from a Samsung epic. The epic had different boot options depending on what keys were pressed when the phone was powered on, so I tried the same combination of keys on the Focus and found out the keys do the same thing.
Pushing volume down+ camera + power will boot to a factory format menu
Pushing volume up+ camera+ power will boot the phone into a download mode
The download mode is used with Odin to flash the phone back to stock and was a big contributer to hacking the samsung epic, so I am guessing it could do the same with this phone.
Odin recognizes this phone fine. What I need help with is getting a system dump from a stock focus and then trying to figure out how to make the pit file for this phone.
If anyone has any ideas about how to use odin let me know.
