Default Odin (Return phone to Stock/Factory)

We created some Odin recovery images for those who have a phone that wont boot

THIS WILL WIPE ALL YOUR DATA

1. Download and unzip the file.
2. Install the Samsung USB drivers (if you dont have them already)
3. From a powered off phone, put phone in Download Mode by holding Vol down, Camera Button, and Power button until the Yellow Downloading message appears
4. Plug phone into USB port
5. Open Odin (included in zip file), you should see a yellow box with a com number
6. Select SPHM820.ops file and the PHONE.tar, and PDA.tar in the appropriate Boxes
7. Click Start

When Odin says reset and the phone reboots the process is done, you do not have to wait for Odin to say pass, that does not work

You need to select the phone.tar if you want to flash your baseband verion
You should not have to flash the BOOT.tar, unless your phone is really messed up

IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS

unplug sdcard
try again
unplug battery
try again
try different USB port
try again
try different USB cable
try again
try different computer
try again

bah im not used to all these new fangle samsung things, for teh epic all we needed was:

boot.bin
sbl.bin
recovery.bin
zimage
factoryfs.rfs
param.rfs
datafs.rfs
cache
and then the PIT file if you wanted to repartition.... so forgive me on my ignorance

sure editing the rfs files is actually easy once you get used to it.. have you tested this to make sure it flashes? i know with previous odin we couldnt get the files to write

Question

Yes I would also like to know what the ops file is and what version of Odin did you use?

If anyone does try this I would appreciate it if you posted your results. Because this is a very interesting topic and the success of this would be beneficial for all.

This is mainly for people whos phone wont boot, this will basically make your phone stock, with root, efs file explorer and adv task killer

No Benefit if your phone is working, but if you wanted to go back to ED13 this is an option.

nioce alright guys. anyone that wont boot.. download and follow instructions to get a working phone again

odin is the alpha and omega when comes to flashing samsung phones... if your phone turns on odin can fix it.. lemme just put it that way.. so MITCH if your still with us.. welcome back

OP mind giving me a bml/stl partition mapping?

i know boot is 9 and recovery is 10 and system is 12, but after that it gets fuzzy

edit on a side note they dont need boot if they got messed up playing with system files, just the pda tar as that will cover everything.

How to make an Odin backup of your SPHM820 phone
Your phone must be rooted, have usb debugging enable, and have a copy of adb

adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/bml1 of=/sdcard/mibib
dd if=/dev/bml2 of=/sdcard/qcsbl
dd if=/dev/bml3 of=/sdcard/oemsbl
dd if=/dev/bml4 of=/sdcard/amss
dd if=/dev/bml8 of=/sdcard/arm11boot
dd if=/dev/bml9 of=/sdcard/boot.img
dd if=/dev/bml10 of=/sdcard/recovery.img
dd if=/dev/stl12 of=/sdcard/system.rfs
dd if=/dev/stl13 of=/sdcard/data.rfs

copy files from sdcard to cygwin or linux and tar them

tar -H ustar -c amss > phone.tar
tar -H ustar -c mibib qcsbl oemsbl arm11boot > boot.tar
tar -H ustar -c boot.img system.rfs data.rfs recovery.img > pda.tar

I need some help making an Odin pda.tar that is not rooted.
The 2 files that need to be modified in the pda tar are system.rfs and data.rfs

What I have tried is opening those files with MagicISO and deleting the files that I think are the root files

system.rfs /xbin/su
system.rfs /app/Superuser.apk
system.rfs /xbin/busybox
system.rfs /xbin/remount

data.rfs /dalvik-cache/Superuser.apk.dex

save the files in MagicISO
make the tar file in Cygwin
tar -H ustar -c boot.img system.rfs data.rfs recovery.img > pda.tar
flash with odin
phone boots fine, and it does not look rooted at all

The problem is if you now try to root that phone again with the KMS script you get access denied errors

So I have to Odin the phone back to my Rooted Odin PDA Image

I want to make an image that is as close to possible to factory as I can, but I am not sure of all the files need to be deleted or replaced.

I have been looking at the KMS script and I understand alot of it, but alot of it confuses me too.

I am very newbish to Linux I am more of a Windows guy, but I want to learn Linux

Any help is appreciated

Thank You


I am willing to bet there will be a custom recovery and custom kernels for this phone in the very near future.

I was at this for 3 days figuring this out, I bricked my phone because some one said to do a factory wipe if the unroot did not work, and I did that, phone would not boot just vibrated on logo screen.

I started messing with the phone and loading Odin images from other phones onto it to see what would happen, I messed up the phone so bad that the only thing it would do is go into yellow download mode, i was not able to get into recovery, and nothing displayed on the screen.

I started looking at diferent odin images and how they were structured, got another working phone, rooted it, dumped all the partition and started looking at them with winhex and comparing them to the files in odin images and I was able to figure it out after flashing about 10 different images to the phone.

I was so damn happy when it Booted,,,yaaayyyy

This Odin image is a different structure than the Epic 4G but it is more simple, you can read the ops file with notepad, when you read a pit file with notepad it is not so simple

I have not slept very much during this time, I must have smoked a carton of cigs, but I love doing this type of stuff, and if your going to experement this is a good phone to do it with

Well the files system is similar

I dont know about porting because the hardware is differnent

I am not a coder so I dont know how to write code to these files, but anyone who wants to do it just needs to find how they did it on that phone and it will be a very similar process

I just dont understand why Samsung does not provide recovery images.
I spent hours searching for one and there was nothing.


Oh and by the way I let my phone do another full update, after the update I Odined the phone tar and my baseband was back to ED13

adb shell

dd if=/dev/bml4 of=/sdcard/amss
copy file from sdcard to cygwin or linux and tar it
tar -H ustar -c amss > phone.tar
flash phone.tar with odin

i think the phone was in airplane mode at the time, but I am not sure if that matters

Heimdall (Its Mac/Linux/Windows)
[PROGRAM] Heimdall - Open-Source Cross-Platform Flashing Suite (1.3 Beta Available) - xda-developers

Note the process is a little different and i suggest you find someone that knows how to use this program. i happened to run into it while i was searching for a solution to fix my phone.

I did see mention of Heimdall but wasn't sure if it would work with the prevail. I think the version of Odin that is used here just barely came out (got leaked?) so that's why it works. Could be totally wrong on that.

I'm currently using Odin in Virtualbox and so far it seems to be going well.

It just rebooted my phone and it did start (a.k.a. no brick :-D). Thanks everyone for all the work you guys put into all this!

The only thing that was done with the phone before I made the image was rooting it with KMS, installing ESF File Explorer, installing Advanced Task killer, Airplane Mode, Enable USB Debugging

Any one who flashes all 3 tars with be the same as above.

They can do a Factory Reset after Odin, and the only thing that will be different from Stock is the Root

Now that we can just edit the RFS files and flash them with Odin we should be able to make a Factory Stock image, I need to learn more about what the KMS rooting does.

I have one question. Is there any way to force a download to the phone if usb debugging is off with Odin? The reason that I am asking is that I had a powersurge while flashing .9 the other day and it somehow turned USB debugging off whilst in the process of flashing causing my phone to permantly bootloop on the Boost screen/ Thankyou.

I tried it a minute ago and it came up on the computer screen to connect the phone, and that's what got me to thinking about the USB debugging. I'll try it again.
