Can you tell me, what is the function of PIT file? sorry i'm noob :eek:

These 2 XDA threads offer information on PIT files:

Basically, I'd only ever use a PIT file if Odin threw up an error relating to it, 99% of the time these are not needed when using Odin unless you've screwed up your devices partitions.

It's handy to have this file saved as a backup though just in case that ever happened ;)

Your pit-file kill my tablet..............

How, a little more information would be nice?

What model did you use it on; T310, T311 or T315?

What options did you tick in ODIN?

I compared the same PIT file to one extracted with heimdall on my T310, all entries/contents were the same, it came from a T311 firmware package but T310 firmware packages also have the same file. T315 uses a different named PIT file hence why I was uncertain.

Just now I've even compared it to another PIT file off the SamMobile forums that a Moderator posted for the T310, everything is the same, ODIN will reject it if it isn't signed as well.

I didn't force you to use the file, nor was this a guide in anyway, your device must have been in a bad way for you to consider using it.

In any case I've now removed the file.
