Make sure you close Samsungs NPS (dont forget the connection monitor in the sys tray!) and that you've installed the i5700 drivers that came on the CD in the box.

Odin will then see the phone just fine.

Something must be blocking odin or the drivers arent being found.

Look under device manager. If you get an unidentified USB device, manually install the drivers, and Odin should kick in.

Hello All,

First thanks to greaky for this guide.

I just got this I5700 recently and tried this guide.

At first I did as the guide instructed, but it got stuck at "setup connection". (Connection was good by the way. Yellow and everything.) I tried several times with different PCs but it all ended the same. In the process I bricked the phone. After power on, there was Samsung and an icon showing ! mark between a cell and a PC.

Then I downloaded Odin 3.98. Then tried again but it gave some weird error messages. I don't remember exactly but it was saying something about cache.rfs. In one of the forums, I found someone saying try it with removing CSC file from Odin. So I did and it worked like charm.

I can make phone calls and send sms. But I can't configure APN so I can't use 3G or whatsoever to access internet. Maybe it has something to do with this CSC file.

So I guess something wrong with the CSC file. Can anyone find a working CSC file to fix the internet issue?

Cheers.

Edit: I switched of and on again, now APN and 3G internet is working. Now I shall see it is stable or not , because of CSC file.

I didn't tried that. Actually after powering on and the ! icon appears, it was not possible to power off with the button, only removing battery. But it could be like that when it is not connected to a PC as you said.

Yeah, it only powers off by removing the battery.
Now you got 2.1 ? Is it working well?

I think i got it. The problem is not with the Odin, but the drivers itself. When in download mode, the drivers get automatically installed and under Modems, it shows "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem" in place of "SAMSUNG Android Mobile Modem". Similarly, under Universal Serial Bus controllers, it shows "SAMSUNG USB Composite Device" in place of "SAMSUNG Android USB Composite Device". On the other hand if u boot normally with 1.5, the devices those get listed are exactly what we want. I also tried unblocking .sys files from properties and update drivers, still no luck. Omitting CSC as well didn't work for me.
BTW, if you get stuck at the screen with "!" mark, deattach the usb cable remove phone battery, replace it and then again plug-in the cable. It'll show as charging, and at this point press power-on button. It should boot normally

The moral of the story : If it doesn't show devices having word "Android", you won't brick ur handset. (most probably)

No communication = No brick

Yeah it's 2.1 right now. It's been like 4 hours by now. Generally it seems OK. As I said, I had some problem with APN configuration at the beginning, but it is ok for now. One problem I've encountered so far is with contact list. I added like 5 contacts but it only shows the first one i entered. But if I search it manually it shows the other contacts and shows their info when they call me. Maybe it's my inability. Another thing, I can't still use multi-touch. Maybe i5700 doesn't support it, I'm not sure.

I don't know that if all i5700 are the same but, on my i5700 (bought from Dubai) there was no Android Market with 1.5. With 2.1, I can use it. Tried some apps already.

By the way, with 2.1 firmware, it's like I'm using whole different phone.

I'll let you know if I encounter other problems.

Cheers.

I am considering trying the way you did it -removing the CSC from Odin-, but I am not sure. Maybe I'll wait for something more official, I don't know.

This rom does not have support for multitouch.. heres hoping when they finally release the official version it will have multitouch :-)

I have noticed some APN issues too but they kinda get alright on their on. Installed this application called APN BACKUP AND RESTORE.. pretty cool that one.

This one is proven to be my inability. After entering Contacts, pressed the menu button. Then selected the Display options. Selected my gmail account name then checked all boxes. Especially the blank one and this problem is solved too.

Does this mean the phone isn't bricked yet?

and that there isn't any risk in trying to update the 2.1 firmware, since if we're stuck we could simply remove the phone battery and reboot?

Most probably
Since there is no communication, so no brick i mean.

I'll suggest, don't take risk n wait for the official release rather

Just remove battery, unplug, insert battery again and then plug in again on the computer. You should see the charging battery image. Then power on and done

hi, thanks for the guide which worked like a charm except that i had not to flash csc as it wasn't working with that.

although i experience a couple of minor/not so minor issues:

apn settings cannot be saved (they can be but it's not appearing on the list and are not functional) so hsdpa/3g is not working

live wallpapers only appearing at the lock screen, on the home screen i see the static wallpaper set.

google earth, ustream broadcaster apps won't start

APN thingy is erratic, you can try restarting the phone when that happens, it works for me after a restart. Also i have installed an application called APN Backup and Restore..just in case.

I face the same issue with the livewallpapers.. apparently it needs a modified Launcher.apk which is available on the samdroid.net forum.. but i did not like it..so I am sticking with my Herohome Free :-) I can live without livewallpapers for now..

notsure about google earth and upstream broadcaster though.. dont use them.

although i experience a couple of minor/not so minor issues:

apn settings cannot be saved (they can be but it's not appearing on the list and are not functional) so hsdpa/3g is not working

live wallpapers only appearing at the lock screen, on the home screen i see the static wallpaper set.

Check your time and date are correct, and do not use automatic updating.

Similarly, under Universal Serial Bus controllers, it shows "SAMSUNG USB Composite Device" in place of "SAMSUNG Android USB Composite Device". On the other hand if u boot normally with 1.5, the devices those get listed are exactly what we want. I also tried unblocking .sys files from properties and update drivers, still no luck. Omitting CSC as well didn't work for me.
BTW, if you get stuck at the screen with "!" mark, deattach the usb cable remove phone battery, replace it and then again plug-in the cable. It'll show as charging, and at this point press power-on button. It should boot normally
Uffff Finally got it done.
That modem driver was the issue, For me the modem was installed as "Samsung CDMA Modem" no matter what I did, fiddled around for 3hrs and then I tried updating the device drivers and updated it with the drivers from that guide and Viola everything is over within 5 mins and I'm on 2.1

For those who are getting some image error in ODIN, run the application as administrator.

Possibly. I've flashed and upated my phone many times, and only once had an issue. I had to flash way back to an earlier firmware, using as All-In-One firmware, before bringing my phone back to life.

Follow these instructions (to the letter).

You must follow Flash Guide I ie. The ALL-In-One Flash update using ONLY TWO files.

The spica_jc3.ops file and All-in-One I570EXXJCE.tar
mentioned.

Use Flash 1 All-In-One Guide

Once I had this firmware installed, my phone booted ok, and I was able to re-flash up to my latest firmware.
