Hi,

Just ODIN recovery & root... driver updated as per Dr. Ketan
Windows 7
N7100 - Middle East edition with firmware XXALIH
Settings enable for USB debugging
SU works normally

BAT file stop at waiting for device...

Any manual procedure as I s\did not see any file in /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 using "root explorer"?
Why we need t back-up EFS again?

Run "android Commander" and device not found. Should I re-install driver as per Dr. Ketan?

Thanks...
