Default Odin on GNU/Linux

Has anyone tried flashing the phone from a GNU/Linux box using odin? How safe is it?

I'm using Fedora 12 x86.

Haven't, but I really wish I had the time to run odin on windows through a usb data capture. It'd be o so nice to have a spec.

You can try Odin with Virtualbox. But I tried it and didn't work..

if pass through can handle it with VirtualBox we can do it but honestly i don't think it will work.. can't understand why a Linux powered device can't be handled with a Linux box :S

No Rastaman, i am not talking about odin.. i am worried that there is no tool for linux users. Android is linux based, we are using linux boxes but we don't have any tool to manage our phones over our pc boxes.

except that little ddms which only works as a state/log reader and screen capturer. :S

ahhh,
thing is i think the utils are manufacturer specific because of the chipset and security on them.
while the os is linux the hardware that hosts it is manipulated for manufacture use

Well, it works 100%. But you have make changes in your linux box so that VirtualBox can recognise your usb devices.

I bought this phone thinking that I could use a linux box to flash it. I personally hate windows. Only under unavoidable circumstances I use the VirtualBox.

You got it right. I'm using usb pass through.

Edit your /etc/rc.sysinit
--------------------------------------------------
if [ ! -d /proc/bus/usb ]; then
modprobe usbcore >/dev/null 2>&1 && mount -n -t usbfs /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
else
# mount -n -t usbfs /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
mount -t usbfs -o devgid=$(awk -F: '/^vboxusers:/{print $3}' /etc/group),devmode=664 /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
fi
--------------------------------------------------------
vboxusers should have the required permissions and your user account should be a member of vboxusers group.

You could add this to /etc/fstab for a permanent mount
------------------------------------------
/proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=501,devmode=664 0 0

501 should be replaced with the corresponding gid of vboxusers.

Please do -- by writing a HOWTO, and posting it here. The admins will take it from there, making sure it's stickied and so on.

Options are only wine or windows inside vmware/vbox. I wouln't suggest to play with that while flashing, although I believe it would work.

Default How to:

You can use this tutorial:

Flash rom Galaxo 1.6.2 and 1.6.1 - Windows tutorial - Samsung Galaxy

and download fastboot from the link within:
http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7500/32481-howto-linux-adb-fastboot-mass-storage.html

The only difference is that on Flash rom Galaxo 1.6.2 and 1.6.1 - Windows tutorial - Samsung Galaxy, where it says:

Go to tools/ directory of the SDK using command line cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools on my PC.
Install the recovery:
In the DOS command prompt, type: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img Do not hit Enter key yet!




You can exchange for:


Do:


sudo ./fastboot flash recovery recovery.img


Note: Using sudo you don't need to change udev rules as it says in the beginning of

There's no way to use Odin in Linux to flash Samsung's firmwares. Galaxo is another thing though, as you only need to flash recovery and then you're free to install this rom. Some parts of the phone can't be flashed that way though (baseband?). You can use Virtualbox (non-open source edition is needed as it's the only one that's got USB support) with Windows installed. You just need to connect your Galaxy and in virtual machine options you need to redirect Galaxy usb devices. Could you explain to me what's the purpose of these scripts you wrote here and why just normal pass-through through VM options doesn't work?

well if i could find a windoz cd or iso i would give it a try probably those codes are to use with ose version.
(or at least i hope so)

and also you are right as i've written some posts before writing recovery (with fastboot) is easy.

I use the open source edition of VirtualBox. By default mount -n -t usbfs /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb is not commented in /etc/rc.sysinit. That means your local account and root only has access to your usb and the usb get greyed in Virtalbox. So that line needs to be commented and mount -t usbfs -o devgid=$(awk -F: '/^vboxusers:/{print $3}' /etc/group),devmode=664 /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb needs to be added so that vboxusers have permission. You need to add your local user to vboxusers group so that the permission can be inherited.
