OK, phone is in DL mode, Samsung drivers loaded, ran odin3, selected .tar file. Odin message window just says setup connection. Is this normal?
Look in top left where it lists ID:COM, is it yellow? and does it show a com port? if so, the phone is conected.
When I started it up it did a install on its own without a prompt....it just finished the install of the update from when I went and did it myself.....I think 2.2...hold on.....nope that was the other update....Now I'm downloading 2.2...
Yup, its going to download a small update first, to patch it prior to the 100mb froyo update.
Yes, ID:com is yellow and shows 0:[com3]. How long does it take?
takes a few minutes to reflash... youll see it at the very top left in the progress bar... I believe bar will turn green and say finsihed when its done.
Yep it did for me
I have 41% of 2.2 downloaded
OK hanging on and waiting for a good sign. BTW - Thanks for your help. Way more informative than Samsung was!
^Roger that - you're saving a lot of grief here, compadre!
Ill be happy when both of them say it works
BTW... i just did my wifes fascinate few moments ago as well.
She had the same problem as mine... Her phone was rooted though which explained her error.
She is up and running with 2.2!
Now to load her THAI fonts back! Ughh!
Ok connected for about 20 minutes. No sign of completion. Concern?
you did click on PDA and browse to the TAR file and hit start correct?????
Samsung wanted me to send them my phone and just gave me a link to a verizon page telling me how to do an OTA.....which I had already done a bazillion times like I told the bonehead at Samsung...Verizon offered me a refurb.....my phone was brand new and I wanted to keep it.
Yes, all selection buttons in Odin are greyed out. The D101 package is listed in the PDA line
Ok download done...and updating now....(installing).......
WHat happened after you hit start? Their should be info at top left in the progress windows as well as the bottom left.
Yes, never went beyond "setup connection". Just failed as I typed this.
Gonna try again.
Booting up......WhooHoo 2.2.1 it worked thank you
Try again, sounds like a communcation error over USB. SOon as the COM area turns yellow and shows a com port # the phone is detected and you can browse for the .tar and then hit start.
Make sure you do it in PDA and NOT phone.
Great, your very welcome.
Maybe you can call verizon/samsung and send them these instructions haha
I plan on letting my friend, a manager at Verizon, know about this
Yes, started and is now saying "initialization" I'm gonna hunt for another cable real quick.
Try rebooting the phone again as well, make sure battery is out.
Connect USB when battery is out, and just hold volume down, your PC should do the rest. Then load ODIN when phone is in download mode.
