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 v184.108.40.206.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
