If I put my phone in download mode, will it always show "downloading...".. should I wait for this to disappear or just go ahead and connect.
@mskip : If my model is GT-N7100 ALJ1, why do I have to select the ALJ3 file according to the setup?
Is there something I'm missing? How long should a flash last? Mine seems to just hang halfway. Could You please help me out here - I'm gettting frantic and I'm feeling I'm close to bricking my phone...
If you reboot to Download Mode via the Toolkit (adb reboot download) then it will just show the green android man (or lady) with downloading... underneath which means its in download mode and ready for flashing.
There is very little (if any) difference in boot images between builds on the same number (i.e. ALJ1 and ALJ3) and I cannot possibly add every single build so builds that are close can share the same image. ALJ3 is newer than ALJ1 and will be perfectly compatable.
Flashing a boot or recovery image will only take a few seconds. If it hangs during the process and won't complete then pull the battery and usb cable, replace the battery and reboot back to download mode (volume down,Home and power buttons for a few seconds, then press volume up when asked) and try the flash again.
As long as you can get back into downlad mode then you can restore your device so dont worry too much.
If you can't root with options 1,2 or 3 then try the Recovery root options (4 and 5).
