Default [Q] Problem With Flash Mode


Im trying to get into flash mode. I tried getting into fastboot and it worked, got the blue LED standing lighting.

However when I tried getting into flash mode, I first get a blink of red then green than it was gone. It didnt stay light up like fastboot (blue).

Leave it like that after like a minute or two, the phone will boot up.

Please help.
The Force is strong in my Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000.

ROM: AOKP Jelly Bean JB Build 2

That's normal behaviour for flashmode. The light doesn't stay on.

But what exactly is the problem that you are facing? Are you trying to get into flashmode while using Flashtool but the flashing doesn't happen because the phone reboots?

If so, you may have connected the phone too early. What I normally do:
1. start the Flashtool program
2. click on the lightning icon
3. choose flashmode
4. select the appropriate firmware
5. click on the Flash button
6. let the program prepare the files
7. wait until a prompt appears for you to connect your device
8. plug your phone to the PC in flashmode.
