This guide may work for other phones too
I did this on linux but it will work on windows too WITH SOME LITTLE CHANGES

Downloads :
Quote:

1. Download your respective S7500 firmware from http://www.samfirmware.com/
the filename will be too long so lets call it firmware.zip
2. download the flasher(odin) for s7500 from samfirmware.com
3. ClockworkMod for ace plus
Thanks to mb-14 for this

Steps:-

Quote:

1. now extract the firmware.zip you will get firmware.tar.md5
2. extract firmware.tar.md5 and you will get a folder with bunch of .img files
3. delete the recovery.img
4. extract cwm-trebon.tar, you will get a recovery.img, put it in the firmware folder
5. select all of the .img files and compress them into firmware.tar
6. open shell and issue these commands

Quote:

md5sum -t firmware.tar >> firmware.tar
mv firmware.tar firmware.tar.md5

7. put your phone in download mode
8. Open Odin and flash firmware.tar.md5 file as PDA

when the phone restarts you won't get the yellow triangle and in the download mode it will show SAMSUNG OFFICIAL firmware
I didn't notice the flash counter, so may be it won't increase, may be it will.

HAPPY ROOTING.

Hello. Thanks for ur hard working.
I'm a windows 7 user and very new in Android from Thailand. I trying to do as mentioned, but I got error like this in

flashing firmware step:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<ID:0/016> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> MD5 hash value is invalid
<OSM> S7500DXLF1_S7500OLBLF1_S7500DXLE1_HOME.tar.md5 is invalid.
<OSM> End...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In making md5 firmware step, I did the following:
- extract stock firmware (S7500DXLF1_S7500OLBLF1_THL.zip)
- get ***.tar.md5 and rename to ***.tar
- extract all in folder and delete original "recovery.img"
- replace it with "recovery.img" from "cwm-trebon.tar.md5"
- compress all files (only files, not included folder) to ***.tar and rename it to ***.tar.md5 (named as above)
- Flashed
- Failed
- (I'm not open shell and issue that command because I don't know how to do it.) (T_T)

How can I solve this?

Thanks for ur attention.

Let's me ask some question.
This step (MD5sum) used to mimic md5sum from stock rom to modified rom, right??

If so, when I issue the command:
md5sum -? Firmware.tar >> Firmware.tar
The RED and BLUE must be different from the other, right??
The one is Stock and another is Modified. And they must have different name.
????
(sorry for poorly English)

the left and the right one should be the same file. The firmware.tar that you just compressed. the one that have the ClockworkMod Recovery image in it.

P.S :-
WHY CAPTCHA ????? WHY?????????
