The Alternative way to flash firmware without using odin. its just a zip file designed for GT-S5360 that contains a scripts to extract the firmware and make it into flashable zip so you don't need a PC to install your firmware inside your sdcard.

i can't guarantee you that this is a 100% safe to use.

USE THIS WITH YOUR OWN RISK! i am not responsible if you bricked your phone for using my tool!!

NOTE: THIS CAN'T REVIVE YOUR PHONE FROM BRICKED :p but it can revert you back into pure and fresh Stock ROM ;)




What's Working?
- Baseband
- Kernel
- Build number
- System files
- CSC
- IMEI


What's Not working?
- param.lfs (contains the official samsung logo)




DOWNLOAD

Build 6 - https://www.mediafire.com/?ln5b7h2vqqq3so2




REQUIREMENTS:

- Firmware files (CSC, MODEM, PDA)
- ClockWorkMod by BroadcomCM Team (its a MUST)
- atleast 500mb free on sdcard
- Brain




INSTRUCTION: READ CAREFULLY!!

- make a folder inside your sdcard and name it "firmware" all small letters
- put the 3 files (PDA, MODEM and CSC) inside the firmware folder you created
- no need to rename the 3 files
- reboot into recovery
- flash the ClockWorkMod by BroadcomCM Team
- no need to wipe
- make a Nandroid Backup (Optional)
- flash the fw-installer.zip and wait for the process
- after that do not reboot your phone or reboot recovery to avoid problem
- you must direct install the totoro.GT-S5360.(firmware version).zip
- it will automatically reboot into stock recovery after the process
- now reboot the system and Welcome Back to STOCKROM :)



it may take up to 3 to 5 mins when installing!



Why i prefer to use CWM by BroadcomCM Team?
- because it has a complete binary files that need by the installer.

Why i didn't include the param.lfs?
- i just don't know the block partition for it.

Can i use this with cm7 based kernels?
- yes, you can use it in any kernel.

i am on ext4 system file, do i have to convert it to rfs before flashing this?
- no need, i already included it.

can i install only PDA or MODEM?
- yes




CURRENT VERSION: Build 6
- STABLE

For imei there is a small work around. Before flashing we could back up the imei no using galaxy tool box app and restore it later.
I dont knw much about roms i had read some where that those things in a folder termed efs.
