Default [GUIDE] Unbrick Attain

Please follow every step as wrote.

Hello guys!, I'm new here but I'm an old developer of many older devices and OSs for mobiles , my name is Travis Antonio nice to meet ya all.

With this guide you will bring your Attain back to life like I did with mine.



NOW THE TIME HAS COME!, Follow the steps

Step 1. Files to download:

-Heimdall Suite: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

-GA Fix: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD


Step 2. Heimdall Suite

Heimdall Suite is a suite made by Benjamin Dobell, so thanks to him we can have the Galaxy Attain back to life.

-Extract the Heimdall Suite wherever you want, but to make sure extract it in the main disk (C:\).

-After you have extracted it go into the folder of Heimdall Suite and open the Heimdall-fronted.exe (To make sure you have MS Visual C++ 2010)

--In case it gives error MSVCP100.DLL, download MS Visual C++ 2010 here: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

--Also make sure you have lastest Samsung USB Drivers, if you don't have it here is a link: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD


Step 3. Preparing/Configuring Drivers

-In the folder of Heimdall Suite go to a folder named Drivers.

-Attach USB to your Attain and put it into download mode. (without battery) *Volume Down + Power* then *Volume Up*

-After the computer recognizes it open zadig.exe

-Click on Options and click on List All Devices.

-Go to the List and mow you should see "Samsung USB Composite Device" on the list.

-Click on Install Drivers

-Done.


Step 4. Attain Back to Life / Heimdall Suite

-Go back to Heimdall Folder and open heimdall-fronted

-Click on Browse and look for the AttainFix.tar.gz

-Click on Load/Customise.

-Click on Flash.

-Voila! (Done).


If you have any question or anything to ask, just feel free I'm here to help,

Special thanks to:

*MobilePlay
*DadCup


Also thanks to:

*Shabbypenguin
For their great support and all the files =D

If you like my work buy me a beer

Thank you Travis. Even though I don't have an attain anymore I am glad that people won't be stuck sith a phone that they can't use.

Thanks to Shabby for helping me with pulling partitions, and showing me how to pull the factoryrfs so I could make some flashable themes, and dadcup as well for helping figure out some of the partitions. IM glad we could all work together and help Travis to get this done.

Thanks to everyone who worked on this project...This once bricked phone now lives again

I only have 1 problem..I cant seem to enter Diag mode and I need that to be able to read phone in CDMA WS..Any way to fix that? the ##3424# doesnt work.

Ok I got it figured out....its *#7284# then choose CDMA MODEM for UART and USB...then it reads fine

Battery drain problems, I haven't see any with the Attain since I had it, explain yourself.

Mine is fixed now. But how do I get the original ROM back? I tried the GASMOD ROM before my Attain bricked. And I am new to androids and did not back up the original ROM.

I have Odin, and the files for pre-root. But I cannot seem to find the rooted stock.

Any help would be nice. Thankz

Also, the ROM that is on there now made the Google Play Store vanish, and I cannot use youtube.

The pre root.tar is the stock rom with root.

If ur using gasmod go to titanium backup and make google play and youtube a system app. If u don't have google play dl it and do the above once its installed

The deodexed rom is cool. The thing is when you load the attain pit file into Odin it automatically checks repartition. You can either not load the pit file or simply uncheck it when u load it. I bricked the attain once through accidentally not unchecking the option. This method was simple and easy to unbrick the attain.

Hi guys,

First, thanks to Travis Antonio and Ben for helping us out with unbricking the Attain.

After following all the instructions I went back to Odin to flash Gasmod, but my computer is no longer recognizing the Attain. In addition, I've tried it from another computer. I've tried forgoing using Odin to flash, and tried installing the Google Play store using the Android SDK, but even adb doesn't recognize the device.

Any suggestions?

Much appreciated!

you shouldn't need to use a pit file odin automatically retrieves it when flashing

Try running the 2.3.6 update so it erases everything and put you back to complete stock. I don't see why that wouldn't fix that issue

After selecting the AttainFix.tar.gz for Heimdall Suite I get "Unexpected error whilst extracting package files".

Re-downloaded the AttainFix file and it loaded just fine

Help, I have an Attain that has an unknown baseband. I have updated it. I have been working on it for hours and finally got it to take the Samsung Simple Update. The phone still refuses to connect. It was rooted and I had hoped the update would bring it back to some semblance of its original self. I am getting an untouched Attain tomorrow and need to know if I can copy the firmware from this second Attain to repair the first. If so, how do I copy the firm ware without rooting the phone?

You can't copy the firmware. After running the update all attains end up with the same firmware so I doubt it would change anything even if you could. Did you change some internal setting?
