Hello friends,
my wife had an elder Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000, bootloader unlocked, rooted, Common Slim-ROM,CWM-Recovery, I have a full backup. I wanted to clear all personal datas. Because I could not accomplish cleaning I tried to flash by CWM-Recovery an other ROM "cm-10.2.0-galaxysmtd.zip". This flash replaced obviously the CWM-Recovery with the Semaphore_2.7.4.tar kernel. From now on the trouble began. The new galaxysmtd-ROM had a few shortcommings and I tried to restore the backup of my old "Slim-ROM" with the new "Semaphore-kernel". This was the start of the trouble. From now on I ran into the following given status-quo. See also the attached pics.
- The phone does not boot into recovery mode but into download mode with the 3-button method or by using a JIG.
- The phone is recognized in Odin with <ID:0/004> Added!! on com4, but when I want to flash a recovery tar-file CWM Recovery v6.0.3.6.tar, or a stock-ROM JW6_JW2_JW1.tar, or the adequate pit-file s1_odin_20100512.pit, each try ends up with the message"succeed 0 / failed 1".
- In ADB it says: "error: device '(null)' not found". So the phone is not seen by ADB at all, allthough it is in "download-mode".
Can anybody help and explain to me, what happened and give me a step by step procedure, how to get out of this trouble and restore the phone, so I can get access to it at all and start over with a new factory flash. Thank you with kind regards

There are 2 three-button-combinations on this phone:
Volume down & Home & Power ---> Download Mode
Volume up & Home & Power ---> Recovery Mode

Are you sure that you have the Samsung drivers installed and that the phone is in download mode?

This is normal, download mode is only used for flashing through Heimdall/Odin.
