06/11: Minor update for Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300 support
=end of update=======================

SplitFUS2
Since Galaxy Y has been released, there are several firmware files available from different sources, eg. sammobile and etc... But most of these firmware packages (which are original unmodified Kies FUS files) are useless for us, because Odin is not able to flash these files. The reason is, the available file is not a standard tar file, it's headers are corrupted. Finally I found the method to split the files, and started converting packages by request and popularity. As time passed, I made the process automatically, first by utilizing spreadsheet, then writing a small C application. This is SplitFUS2

The app converts the original files (which can be downloaded form the FUS server or from sammobile or other sources) to Odin ready 3 files tar pack.
The app useful for Samsung Galaxy Y (S536x, B551x, S6102), new Galaxy Ace (S5830i), Galaxy Pop Pro or Mini Plus or whatever it's name (S5570I)


Unpack the whole pack to a working directory, and start it from command line!


By flashing an improper firmware pack you may potentially risk the health of your phone. Do it on your own risk only!
I won't take responsibility of any damage done to your phone.


Required components under Cygwin/Linux
tar, md5sum, zip (infozip)

Code:
[email protected]:~/splitfus$ ./splitfus2
SplitFUS2 by Doky v2.00.120425GA
Usage: splitfus2 [options] filename
Converts the original Samsung Kies FUS update pack to Odin ready bundle
Options:
      -s to include sbl.bin (omitted by default) use with CAUTION!
      -w create wipe pack (currently only S5360 supported)
      -w2 generate non wipe and wipe pack at the same pass
      -a leave work folder alone (does not delete on exit)
      -k extract kernel only
      -t do not sign md5, leave tar output files

see more at: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1611225

Features (2.00.120425GA)
- automatic conversion of one-file FUS tar.md5 files to three-files tar.md5 packed into zip
- automatic readme.txt creation
- sbl skipped by default, can be included by "-s" command line switch (see #2 for info)
- '-w[2]' switch to generate "wipe" pack [too] (user data will be eleminated by flasnig the wipepack)
- '-a' switch, not to delete the work folder - useful for ROMmmers to examine and extract the image files
- '-k' switch for create Odin flashable stock kernel file only
- '-t' switch for skip the md5sum checksum, and create .tar files

Bugs
surely got some... please report!
-

Future plans
- support data partition wipe for different models (need assistance collecting userdata.img for other models)
- include wipe partitions into the binary, and eliminate _base folder
- Windows GUI
- any request...?

Supported models (please report if not listed!)
-S5360
-S5360B
-S5360L
-S5360T
-S5363
-S5369

-B5510
-S6102
-S5570I
-S5830i


tested and NOT supported (yet, sorry):
-S5690

In case you have Odin flash issues with these models, and got at least one Odin working pack, please contact me!

Usage:
see post #2!

Usage:
- start Cygwin terminal in Windows or terminal shell in Linux
- unpack the whole archive including the _base folder into your work folder (eg into Win: C:\Cygwin\home\username\splitfus, Linux: /home/username/splitfus)
- on Linux set file permissions to executable, and check ownership of splitfus, _base and it's content (chmod 755 splitfus)
- put your source Samsung FUS file (one file *.tar.md5) into the work folder
- list help by: ./splitfus2 -h :)
- launch according to your needs, eg ./splitfus2 -w S5360DDLC2_S5360ODDLA2_S5360DDLC2_HOME.tar.md5

see Video tutorial on installing Cygwin
At packs selection (time - 3:15) make sure "tar", "md5sum", "zip" has been selected. On newer installer there's a search box above, type search words in it!

Examples:

One notice on SBL:

I decided to not include the SBL by default, because SBL is crucial point of hard-bricking your phone.
According to my tests (about 30+ packs), SplitFUS2 handles correctly the SBL, but in future Samsung FUS files it might change.

Who wants to include SBL can use '-s' switch, but my recommendation is to check the generated sbl.bin with a hex editor.
some criteria to judge about good (SGY) sbl.bin:
- Size is 1306624
- starts with HEX 13 00 00 EA
- at the end there's a lot of 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 blocks
- somewhere at 0x9BBxx there's a string of 'Secondary Boot Loaded'

In addition compare with a working one. If similar (but not necessarily identical) then it's OK.

When above criterion has meet then you have good chance not to brick your phone by a wrong sbl.bin :D
