This package includes:
Repartitioning: Repartition to stock JFD
Reloading: IBL/PBL, PARAM, SBL, SBL2, Kernel, Recovery, FactoryFS and modem

You may use this code to reformat the SDCard *2767*3855# There is no way to do this from Download Mode. The code will leave the EFS untouched.

This package does not wipe:
SDCard (where your pictures are stored)
EFS(Where your serial number and carrier information is stored)

Instructions:
  1. Get the latest version of java here: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
  2. Put your phone into "Download Mode"
  3. Run the program once, and if it does not work, then check the "Flash Bootloaders" checkbox and flash again

Your device will end up as it came from the factory with UVJFD

REPARTITIONING ISSUE WITH HEIMDALL 1.3.0
Heimdall currently has an issue with repartitioning. 99% of the time you will not need to repartition. Failure to follow these directions can possibly lead to bricking:

Do not flash bootloaders if you see this message:
Code:
Local and device PIT files don't match and repartition wasn't specified!
This message means your partition tables do not match the firmware.

You will need to use Linux to repartition with this firmware package. Install Ubuntu. In Linux, you can copy-pasta this into the terminal to correct the repartitioning problem and then flash bootloaders. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=23

Correcting typo... locking thread, requesting comments to be removed. Thank you for pointing it out. I was told otherwise.

Old download removed, new download uploaded. Picture uploaded to reflect new version.

Odin is closed source, works only on Windows, and you can't get the firmware back out once it's made one-click. This is a fully open source stack. It works on Linux, Mac and Windows. Also, you can inspect inside the Jar to verify contents whereas that's impossible on Odin One-Click.

Oh well, I think may phone is really messed up. This is my last resort (Heimdall) still
same problem stuck on vibrant Screen. Tried Odin -> stock , Froyo no Bick -> stock , stock flash to about 15 different ROMS CWM/ODIN/ HEIMDALL none worked out..

but the wierd thing is recovery mode is ok download mode is ok. but
when i flash to any 2.2 roms(odin or CWM) my phone just vibrates then reboots just like SGS I9000 phones when they messed up thiers.

tried flashing GB ROMS then my display is f*kd up its like a TV set with a really bad signal! lol


My phone goes like his http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abdA-7n3kTE

Good work ,tested on ubuntu no problem at all.It surprised me that a semi bricked phone it is detected by Heimdall and flashed without any issues.
I think Linux is more friendly than Windows with Android phones

I was able to do this because of an excellent set of open source tools. This was the idea behind Heimdall one-click... Linux is inherrently easier then windows. Its just under developed. The framework is all there though.

Try ModeDetect and UnBrickable Mod. They're also Linux tools I designed to make things simple.

Heimdall relies upon Open-Source libusb drivers. It's a fully Open-Source stack of software. Odin relies upon closed source Samsung drivers. You need to install the Samsung drivers again to use Odin.

Kudos!

If you are flashing a GB ROM, you need to have GB bootloaders or you will get messed up screen and will not be able to see recovery. I have moved to MIUI based ROM a few weeks back and am very happy with it. You might want to try it. http://forums.miui.us/showthread.php...-11-Fast-LMFAO!. Hope his helps.
