After seeing my friends phone, I was convinced rooting is awesome. Today I finally got the time to go ahead and attempt to root my phone, however I've ran into some not so pleasant problems..
I am using Odin3 v1.85 and kernel-GB-3a.tar.md5
I run odin, select the PDA file, then click start. However, then, I get stuck at zImage. I've let it sit for a very long time, it won't continue. I do not have Kies processes, and I have already tried unplugging everything.
If I keep waiting, eventually my Samsung Epic 4G screen just turns off..
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> kernel-GB-3a.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
I need my phone ASAP, and I have no clue why this isn't working. Can someone please provide help?
