you might check this thread out http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1275031
and try the EF17 stock tar with Odin, no pit or repartitioning.

i was able to use heimdall but i noticed that all files will flash completely if kernel (zImage) is not present. if it is present it will get to 100% and get stocked. if i flashed it without kernel (zImage)field. it will be successful and load the first samsung logo but it will shows some errors like
E:can't mount CACHE:log/recovery.log
E:can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
(No such file or directory)

PLEASE WHAT CAN I DO NEXT. ? HELPPP

EDIT
Sorry, noticed too late that I wasn't supposed to ask questions in this forum, so I created a new thread in the right place with this question:
here
Please feel free to disregard or delete this post here and accept my apologies...


Hi.
I'm trying to fix my boss' tab (Sprint).

I have tried all kinds of things and nearly bricked it (got the phone ! computer symbol, but it still accepted uploads).

Here's the issues:
- Continuous loop of Samsung logo on boot
- From Recovery screen, I performed a factory reset, but it didn't change anything
- In the Recovery screen, I get errors similar to the ones quoted above:
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
(No such file or directory)
E:Can't mount CACHE:log/recovery.log
E:Can't open CACHE:log/recovery.log
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
(No such file or directory)

Tried:
-ODIN with the stock ROM also posted earlier in this thread. It works, but it doesn't fix anything. I tried with and without the PIT file (one thread specifically warned NOT to use the PIT file, but I have no idea what it does...)
-Heimdall doesn't seem to work at all for me. I found version 1.3.1, and the instructions in post 21 of this thread don't seem to apply to this version. I finally figured out that I need to be in the FLASH tab, but I can't add files without the PIT file, it won't let me add the zImage file for recovery (or at least complains that there's no .bin file ending), and when I checked "Repartition", I got the error:
ERROR: Partition corresponding to -21 argument could not be located
Ending session...
Yes, I installed the drivers that came with Heimdall.
-Following other posts with very similar errors, I formatted the SD card in Windows using FAT32 - no change.
-I looked into another thread talking about parted, but I don't have root on that device, and I'm not sure what my boss would think about me rooting his pad... I also don't know enough to figure out which rooted ROMs would go with it - I'm scared enough with the "official stock rom" I'm using :)

I know a little about Linux and have used adb to root my own phone, but otherwise a lot of the things I read here only make enough sense to me to follow the instructions and not get lost.

Maybe there's a different version of Heimdall that I should be using, or maybe I did something else wrong, but I'm sure I followed the instructions here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

The link is a .rar file. Extract it, and you'll get tab_sprint_noModem_20101226.tar.
Extract the .tar and you'll get:
cache.rfs
dbdata.rfs
factoryfs.rfs
param.lfs
zimage

Where do we download it help pls
