If you are one of the unfortunate few who have the three button fix disabled and need to go back to stock 2.1 use this instead of Designgears original Odin one click.

Put the PDA.tar and PIT files in the appropriate places in odin and flash in download mode.

Drivers
Windows 64
Windows 32

PDA file
Took down the PDA.TAR file from my personal website as it is hogging my bandwidth. If anyone wants to mirror it or upload it, please send me a pm and i will give you a link to dl it.

Anyone with the three button disabled, please confirm that this is working for you as well.


I tested this on my phone with the 3button disabled, and the 3 button was working after the flash back to 2.1

Is the JF6 firmware with this the same as that on samfirmware.com? And why is this version superior to the one click version? If the three button method to get into download mode is disabled, one has to try one of the other methods to get there (adb reboot download, volume buttons + usb plugin, phone + ! + computer to download mode, etc.). Once in download mode somehow, how does a flash from this version help more? Not doubting, just need clarifications.

This is the JF6 firmware from samfirmware.com.

This version is not superior to the one click if the three button combo came enabled with your phone.

This is for people whose phones didn't come with the three button combo. If you flash this from download mode, the three button combo should work for you.

Here is the problem. DG has put out a fix for the three button combo. If you have a problem updating a rom, or you need to flash back to stock for some reason, the Odin one click will disable the fix. This will work the same as the Odin one click, but it keeps the three button intact (it should). It should also enable the three button fix if yours has never worked.

If you flash with the one click Odin and then brick your phone trying to flash rom manager recovery, or trying to flash another rom, that's it, your phone is bricked. If you have three button working and brick your phone, you can still use the keys to flash back to a working rom. This should help keep the three button intact at all times.

If your three button isn't working, you shouldn't be flashing roms, or anything really. If you're going to, you need to get the three button working(IMO).

My three button combo worked from day one, and flashing the one click did not affect it adversely. If dg has put out a fix for those with bad phones. Wouldn't it be adequate to simply apply just the fix?

No.

DG's fix is wiped when using his Odin one click. That's why this Odin flash was needed.

If yours worked from day one, this isn't for you.

Good work C3P0LOL! I'm glad someone was able to put my idea into action, finally. This will definitely put me more at ease flashing back to stock, not having to worry about it failing. Also I don't know if you did it on purpose or if it was just luck but the fact that it flashes the SBL first is a nice touch.

I'm glad you like it! This should help those of us without the three button rest a little easier. The sbl.bin flashing first is clutch!

+1 for this.

As mentioned earlier, you either have some cool telepathic abilities or simply just a genius for having thought of this. I remember going into DG's thread about this as well, and I remember you being actively helping out over there, how did you stumble upon this? I have the JF6 one click Odin, but i was not aware that by using the one click, it would delete sbl.bin. It makes sense, because on his OP it even states that the process may have to be repeated everytime a new Rom is flashed (unless of course the Rom being flashed already contains the enabled sbl). <----That is for those who NEVER had the 3-button function out of the box.

"...you cant lose it if you already have it...."

EDIT: Newb Question: Isn't there a version of the one click Odin somewhere in XDA that already has this included as part of the flash? Or did i have too much to drink already? lol


EDIT 2: please disregard my last Edit. SMH

This was a concern to some of us without the three button combo in the irc chat. I'm glad I was able to build a working version of this for us. Enjoy it guys!
