Use the snippet tool and send screenshots. I bet I've ran into the same error as you before. I've put this phone through a lot of stress.

Heimdall works so much better too imo. There's the issue though where you have to install the Heimdall driver to get it to work with Heimdall (you use the tool in the folder /driver). If you want to go back to Odin, you'll have to go into Device Manager and rollback to the old driver.

You may already know this, but I figured I would post for others.

EDIT: Take the .md5 extension off the end and try again using just the .tar extension. It should work. Flash the same way via PDA.

Bsanborn, has had luck with the recovery?

Made some ground last night. I got caught up and didn't get a chance to finish. All the terminal windows and everything are still open on my computer. I'll work on it again tonight. I'll post my results when I get them.

As far as I can tell, I think I got it. So far everything has gone smoothly Kernel wise. I had to download a bunch of packages and stuff since Ubuntu was a fresh install.

Don't get your hopes up though, I'm a total noob at this. :)

help!

Hey guys any ideas would be appreciated. I cannot get into recovery - can only get into the "downloading" screen and talk to ODIN. I've tried flashing factoryfs.rfs.tar
zImage.tar and
recover.bin.tar

All flash fine. Still only able to get to the "downloading" screen.

I've tried flashing the samsung_exhibit_stock_2.3.3.pit a few times but it just locks up

    Heres something for the ADB newbs, it pushes the zergrush, SU and all that. One click :D I took the one for the amaze 4g, added the samsung zergrush File and it works GREAT. i just ran it on my Exhibit and its very newbie proof. Just Unzip. make sure your phones connected to the PC with the correct drivers and click the .bat file. does all the work for ya.

    Be sure to hit thanks also.

    Congratulations everyone, the new zergRush update for Samsung phones released yesterday works on the Exhibit. I was able to successfully get root and install superuser. I now have permanent root on my Exhibit!

    Link for STOCK FILES below guys.I put it in zip format to keep the size down for upload lol.Extract it, then extract the tar file and you will get the factoryfs.rfs, recovery.bin and zimage.Hopefully this site doesn't get shut down by the feds :D.

    I have rebooted several times and still have root.
    After pushing and running zergRush and getting root i remounted adb and ran the following commands

    adb push su /system/bin
    adb push su /system/xbin
    adb shell
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    exit
    adb install Superuser.apk

    and my root has stuck just fine.

    Samsung released source codes

    Few days ago I have noticed, that Samsung released source codes for Exhibit 4G.

    As I bought this phone 3 weeks ago, and I am still unable to use it, I started wondering if I can build a new ROM without SIM lock.

    I have never played with such thing before, so I would appreciate any hints. It took me couple of hours, but I successfully built a exhibit kernel and android OS with exhibit custom modules (exactly according to the readme.txt included with source codes).

    Now I would like to flash them to my mobile, but I have to find out how to backup my current ROM... to be able to go back if anything goes wrong. I have searched, and found only instruction which required root access which we do not have.
