Attached is the .pit file containing the partition mapping for the Epic 4g Touch. I extracted it using Heimdall. Interestingly, Heimdall on OS X Lion works with the Epic 4g Tough out of the box, which was not the case with the OG Epic 4g, which still doesn't have the updated sbl.bin to work with heimdall on a Mac.

Use at your own risk, I am not responsible if you brick your new toy, blah blah blah, etc etc etc.

I flashed CWM and CWM is working and got root but I didnt know it flashed a I9100 kernel too. Well, at least there's source code, I should be all good to go once I can compile an original kernel.

How did you flash CWM and where did you get it from?

This .pit file contains the partition map for the device. It tells Odin and Heimdall (another piece of flashing software, which i find to be MUCH better than Odin) where to flash the different files such as the boot.bin, sbl.bin, zimage (kernel), system, data, cache, recovery, modem, etc. Without the .pit file, Odin may not know where to flash a file, and you could end up with a soft bricked device. AFAIK, there isn't anything we can flash yet. We need to wait for someone to take the stock Epic 4g Touch kernel and add CWM, root, su and busybox.
