Default A Problem With Odin - Can't Flash

hey,
opened a new thread because my post was swallowed in the "new firmware".

i tried using Odin Multi Downloader 3.95 to flash my galaxy.
no matter what files i use (tried H2, H7 and H8) i get this log and error:
<1> Added!
<1> Detected!
<1> odin mode .. check verification platform.
<1> START!
<1> odin mode .. do file mapping ..
<1> check download environment.
<1> e - big partition size!!
<1> Delete Comm3engine

i think the file mapping goes well (i didn't touch the .tar files, just unzipped the .zip they came in), and the "download environment" refers to the phone. i searched the internet and found only one mention of this error on a russian forum with no solution...
i tried formatting my internal SD and doing a hard reset but it didn't help.

have no idea what to do next...

are you using the one file method?
if so then instead try extracting the files, then re pack them like the hz software is packed (2 stages and csc)

see if that helps

what os are you using?

hey,
i'm using Win XP, and i tried following kam187's instructions. so i didn't try the one file method.
what do you mean by repacking them like the hz software?

do you think it's possible to update to H8 or any other using an update.zip file placed on the sd card?

right if you are going to go to h8 do this

download the h7 firmware pack listed by KAM
download the seperate h8 file from the rapidshare link
run odin
put phone in download mode
extract the h8 zip so you can locate I7500XXIH8-PDA-CL53973-REV5(VIA).tar
connect device
put tick in one package
specify the path to Orion.ops
do not specify the path to Boot, Phone, PDA, CSC
specify path to ONE PACKAGE and link that to I7500XXIH8-PDA-CL53973-REV5(VIA).tar
click start
specify one file path

the file path you are using is humongous

try creating a folder on H: called "flash" or something and put the tar file, odin, orion there

atm it could be that there are too many charachters

didn't work...

i still think it's got something to do with the phone. where else is there a partition?
perhaps it's because i rooted the phone?
well not exactly rooted. more like replaced the recovery image.

i wish there was an error list for odin so at least i would know what the error means... but there is none! there's barely a mention of odin on the web

usually when stuff like that is referring to partition its meaning the pack size

im not sure if it is the phone or not now as you seem to be doing everything right

whats the file total space left on the device?

you mean in the system partition? about 800 MB left.
the internal SD is almost empty.

i tried doing a hard reset but that didn't help... it's so frustrating.

perhaps there is a way to update using update.zip method?
or maybe there is a way to update manually using fastboot or adb?

Same prob over here. Sounds like an USB issue to me.

You need to have Samsung NPS installed for Odin to work. At least the drivers thereof. SDK drivers wonŽt work.
