does anyone know how long it should take for odin to finish flashing my phone back to stock? Also has anyone seen this screen? It's black, with a white cell phone and a white computer with a yellow triangle with an "!" in the middle between them....? that's all i can get my phone to do. Odin is taking a really long time and i'm not sure everything's working right.

it should take 5-15 minutes at max.
I get that sign every time i do odin, but unlike others i just click the power button and reboot and its good... try that?

well how do i know when odin is finished? becuase it's been stuck on step: chache.rfs for about 20 minutes now and i don't know if it's just frozen up or what. I don't want to unplug it if i'ts still doing something.

hate to sound like a dick head but when that happened to me this last go around (getting stuck on the chache part) i unplugged which gave me the computer ... ! thingy i put it back into download mode and opened odin then plugged my phone back in. hit start after putting my pit and tar files in their respective spots and it worked. took less then 6minutes i'd say.
There are ways to dl mode your phone from computer ... ! screen just find them. im leaving for a puppy otherwise i would have linked it. gf getting angry RAWR!! <(*-*t)
thats her giving me the bird and ready to kill. LOL

That happened to me also, and it was my very first flash on the Vibrant. It soft-bricked, but I just kept at it... got back into download mode... and tried again. It worked. As far as I can gather, as long as you can still get to download mode, you are golden, even if it takes a try or two. It seems that Odin is sometimes temperamental. It only takes a couple of minutes to flash via Odin, but when you are sitting there waiting for the PASS notification, it does seem like an eternity the first time you do it.

I got a FAIL the first two times on the very first attempt. It's a bit unnerving when you aren't sure it'll come back.

I am currently downgrading back to stock on my T959 using Odin 3 and it keeps hanging at the very first part when it says file analysis. I have been at this part for a good 30 mins. any suggestions? just keep retrying until it works?
