I've downloaded and extracted the tcm7beta-2011-08-07.zip again but I'm getting the same error message. start button in Heimdall is not active, can't flash...
when I'm trying to load zImage, I'm getting this error from Heimdall: "Tar header contained an invalid file size."
what am I doing wrong? why it's not working for me? please help me.
The new version of Heimdall is a little funny.
What you want to do is extract the zip you have downloaded to a known directory, then open up heimdall. Click on the "Flash" tab then click on the browse button next to the PIT file option. Navigate to the pit file supplied with the ROM and select it. Now, underneath the box to the right you need to click on Add. When you do this a drop down menu to the left will become active. Change the highlighted option to Kernel, then underneath it click browse. navigate to the extracted zImage and select it. Now click add again, change the dropdown to factoryfs then click browse, select "factoryfs.ext4". Heimdall will issue a warning about the extension, just ignore it and carry on. Do the same process for cache (cache.ext4), and dbdatafs (dbdata.ext4). It will issue the warning for both of them, just ignore it and carry on.
Once done the flash button becomes active, and you can go!
If you need/want pictures, let me know. I'll update this post
