How To install Cygwin And Use Splitfus2



You can download any stock rom package for galaxy y from Sammobile and use Splitfus2 to split it into odin flashable parts


Skip how to install Cygwin if you already have it set up but if you run into problems later come back to this and set up Cygwin again properly


How to install Cygwin Properly
uninstall any version of Cygwin you currently have installed

now install Java SE Development Kit 7 from here


now download the 32bit x86 version of Cygwin from here


Run the setup and make sure you install all the packages by clicking the arrow at the top that changes everything from default to install all
Make sure you have selected the root of your harddrive to install it in Cygwin folder for eg c:\cygwin
Now you can install cygwin

For detailed video instructions watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=sYJMdHPD410 (skip the bit at end about setting up kitchen - you just want Cygwin)


How To Install Splitfus2 And Run It
Download Splitfus2 from here
now navigate to C:\cygwin\home\your username
create a folder called splitfus



unzip the Splitfus2 zip and place the containing splitfus2.exe and _base folder in the splitfus folder
place the stock firmware you want to split also in the splitfus folder



run Cygwin

type cd splitfus



now type ls



type ./splitfus2.exe -w S5360nameofyour firmware (note to make it easier just type S5360 then press the tab key and it will auto compleate - also note it is case sensitive and it starts dot then a forward slash)



now your firmware will be split and output in a zip file to your splitfus folder
unzip and use in odin



You can find already split firmware and links to dokys original threads here

Thumbs up Added Info!!
I have made a video on how to setup Cygwin Kitchen on linux in less than a minute.

Here's the link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z45ocbB7e24

I have mentioned everything in detail in the description of the video.

Maybe you can add it if you find it useful!

this thread is for using splitfus2

if you had the splitfus2 linux version and guide I could add it to this thread


by all means create a seperate thread for setting up kitchen on linux
just as a note Cygwin is a linux terminal emulator for windows - its not for linux

iv added the supported models to the op the s5839i is not included - the best person to contact is doky as he created this programme to see if there is a way to easily add your phone model

i dont know if you can simply copy the s5830i file in the base folder and rename the copy to s5839i - iv no idea if it will work and it may cause damage to your device if the phones are different in terms of mount points and partitions

I downloaded odin 3.07 and it flashed using the single file so no need to split when using odin 3.07. Happy days.

follow my instructions on the op for installing cygwin
you do not need internet to install cygwin
download the package from the link given in the op
run the setup
select install from a package folder on harddrive
select the package folder you have downloaded from the link given in the op (the same as the setup.exe)
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE PACKAGE FROM THE CYGWIN SETUP! INSTALL FROM HARDDRIVE!


also B5512 is not in the support list but B5510 is - I dont know if you can use B5510 firmware on B5512
