Disconnect phone, and remove battery. Re-insert and power on to Upload screen.

Try changing USB ports.
Try re-booting PC screen.

Also do not connect phone until Odin is running, and ensure NPS and KIES are NOT running.

It's a pain, but I've seen odin fail to recognise phone, and then suddenly recognise it after trying a few of the above.

Default getting there.. but

thanks Beerkan

I eventually got the Galaxy recognised as COM 3


all the files recognised as per your list I clicked on Start.. the com port timer started climbing up... after 20 mins and still nothing happening?/

I eventually pulled the battery and fortunately it re-booted as previously.. I'm doing somethnig wrong...

As www.Androidforums.com site has been down for the day I looked at Youtube for other;s using Odin to install 2.1. It seems the person on the video checked the 'one package' tick box. It wasn't on my tryout as it was not suggested. .should it be ticked, perhaps?

Reboot, protect ops, and reset time boxes, are ticked


still keen to get it going



any help appreciated

NOOO!!!! Be VERY VERY CAREFUL. Ticking the wrong boxes can seriously FUBAR your phone.

SERIOUSLY FUBAR IT!!

The firmware you have is NOT a "One Package" update.

Start again from scratch. Reboot PC, remove battery from Phone, reinsert and begin again.

[ ] One Package (not ticked)
[x] Reboot (ticked)
[x] Protect OPS (ticked)
[x] Reset Time (ticked) 300
[ ] Debug (not ticked)

Thanks for the confirmation, Beerkan.

I saw the time counting up on COM 3 but that was all.. is there another indication that it is actually uploading to the phone.. Perhaps i didn't give it enough time?.. (I only pulled the plug as the whole event should have been done in under 7 mins..

If I pull the battery 'ext' time through not working is it safe to do so. or have I just been VERY LUCKY!


I await your sage advice

OK.. All this assumes you have PC USB drivers installed.

Power off phone. Remove SIM and SD and USB cable from Phone. (leave it connected to PC)

Start Odin.
Fill in Odin file details,

On the right hand side windows Select these files.

OPS = spica_jc3.ops
BOOT = I570EXXJA1_Bootloader.tar
PHONE = I570EXXJD1_Phone.tar
PDA = I570EXXJD4_PDA.tar
CSC = I570EOXEJD2-CSC.tar

Left hand side window
[ ] One Package (not ticked)
[x] Reboot (ticked)
[x] Protect OPS (ticked)
[x] Reset Time (ticked) 300
[ ] Debug (not ticked)


Now Press and hold down in order
"Volume Down + Camera Key + Power On"

Might take a couple of tries.
Wait till you see Downloading Screen, come up.


Now connect Phone to USB. If Odin does not detect phone, unplug phone USB and try again. If Odin STILL does not detect phone, remove USB from phone, remove battery, reinstert and put phone back into download mode. If Odin is still not seeing Phone, try another USB port on PC. . And if Odin is STILL being a b*stard, reboot PC and start again.

Plug in phone USB.

You're looking for an image like this.




Check the boxes are ticked correctly, and hit Start Button.

Takes about 3 mins, and you will see a green progress bar rising above COM Port mapping in Odin.

Wait for your phone to reboot, about (2 mins) with No Sim message.
Odin should say PASS!
Disconnect phone from PC
Close Odin.

Wait for phone to boot to home screen, then power off phone and insert SIM & SD.

When you power on again, (might take a while to boot)
First go to Wireless settings, enable them and connect to your home Wifi.

Set your launguage & location to UK English etc.
Set up Market Place first with your Gmail account.

Then let phone sync to google, you'll have your contacts/calander back etc.

Load any apps you want back from Market place.

Go to home screen and add Power Control Widget and switch off Screen, GPS and Bluetooth.
You can switch em back on when you need them.


If your phone will not connect to internet without wifi you need to set your APN settings Manually.

Menu
Settings
Wireless & Networks
Mobile Networks
Access Point Names
Your Provider

Enter your settings here.

Thanks for the detailed rundown Beerkan



I have got to the point in your screen shot above in you thread.. then clicked Start button.

Then I get this but no downloading is happening. I have tried it twice now (without bricking the phone.. don't want to try another time without your advice





just out of shot is the last message

<1> setup connection...

It's still at this point after 20 mins and I am going to pull the battery again.

The messages may mean something to you?

Again thanks for all yuor help.. whether it gets to work or not

Check that no samsung software is running on the pc/laptop. If it is, unload it. (like samsung stuido or keis)

Also once you have your phone in download mode, and you plug it into your pc, wait 2-3 mins for the phone to be detected by your pc/laptop propperly. After this wait, load odin, check your settings and .tar file paths are correct, then hit start.

Hope this helps

Interesting

connect phone 'before' loading Odin.

I am pretty sure the files are where they are stated in Odin.. I purposely browsed to them from Odin to make sure..

They are close to the root directory.. just one subdrectory of C:


I'm just wondering how many times I can pull the battery before I have an accident with it.. If it were a cat.. half its lives would be up by now

Its not as bad as it sounds, I'm sure it will go smoothly, I was worried before I did mine, but I'm so glad I have, although I'm still debating if I should root or not.

The jd1 firmware had all the tmobile settings, I tried jd4 also but that came up as DISCONNECTED to tmobile, so I'm assuming it was missing some apn settings or something. just fyi.

I was having the same problem, not continuing with the upload (if it's working it ONLY takes a few minutes) and the ONLY way I could do it was with KIES installed (but not running) and It still took a couple of attempts (with 2 different phones). If the download doesn't start (no movement of the upload bar above the com port) close Odin, take the battery out of the phone and reboot it in download mode again, re-start Odin and re-connect the phone and try again. It did work for me eventually.

Pete

p.s. Froyo anyone? ;-)

I have had the same problem in the past caused by other programs attempting to access the port. Quickest way to solve it is to run msconfig and disable all startup programs on your pc. Do the upgrade as described by Beerkan then run msconfig again and re-enable all those startup programs
