Ok, and in that waste of time you could have helped me.
I think the important thing is to solve the problem, and after, taking care of where must this thread be...

To be honest i don't know.

PIT file is normally the partition table layout of your phone's NAND.

Did you try running odin in admin mode? Or perhaps another version of odin? Try a lower version of odin if that version doesn't work.


The thing is people need to post in the correct sections, this has nothing to do with own source-based development

Then i don't see why we should create multiple threads over a single topic

Sincerely, the thread was well written and I think it's good, except by that there's already a few threads like that! Specially because you're not talking about a new method, AFAIK there are two ways to root GT-I9505, one for Windows by Chainfire and my one for Linux. I think you should post this tutorial in general, then it would be better placed, after all you're not talking about any development.

There seems to be a distinct lack of gratitude here. Thanks for the guide, worked fine first time. Just clicked a few buttons, waited a few pant****ting moments while the android went red and then breathed a sigh relief before sparking up a post rooting ciggy... (last part is optional and may damage your health).

Edit: Amazing those letters get censored even in the middle of a word. What happens if I want to tell you that I was watching the tennis and Federer was hitting his shots badly. Surely it's perfectly reasonable to say he mi**** a lot of shots. He did many mi****s, he was mi****ting all over the place?
