    When i keep attempting to flash to DLI01 it gets stuck on updating modem then it shuts off and gives me the same error message as the Froyo OTA message.

    Ok so the flash worked it seems.. What did you do after the phone rebooted then? I am a little confused.. Did you download the EA28 update from settings/about phone/system updates yet?

    Ok then the flash didnt complete.

    Reboot phone, reboot pc and start process over following instructions.

    Try a different USB port, run odin as administrator.

    its gets stuck when updating through the phone not through Odin, when the unpacking screen comes on and all the update messages appear it gets stuck on updating modem, after a while my phone shuts off and turn it back on again to the update screen the error message appears.

    Probably this will help practically no one, but just to be safe - always a good idea to have a decent charge when updating.

    Got Odin to recognize it ! Now it is stuck at "movinand.bin" 15 min...almost all the way to the end of the progress bar. I was stuck here before i messed my phone up even more.

    where do i go from here?

    thanks in advance...still sweating that i bricked the phone:confused:

    Works flawlessly! Thank you!! I spent other night factory resetting and re downloading the update over and over... I was rooted but wanted the factory Froyo. Now I have it and couldn't be happier about it. Thanks man!

    Mine is stuck at the next line after factoryfs.rfs .....movinand.bin but my green progress bar it almost at 100%...like 99.

    Id be happy just to get it back to 2.1 and working at this point. HELP

    Gonzo its common that it gets stuck. You have to keep trying, most of the time its just a communication problem over USB from your phone to PC.

    If your following all the steps you just need to try again, its taken people sometimes more then 5 times for whatever reason.

    BTW its just a soft brick, a little patience and you will get it.

    BTW how many of you guys that were successful with the 2.2 upgrade had a rooted phone?

    I would be curious to know whether it was rooted or if it was stock and the update just failed.

    Thanks for trying to rest my nerves. I just thought i totally messed it up by going into "factory reset and clear cache" when doing a hard reboot after messing up before while downloading...and the fact the phone doesnt work anymore !

    Do i just X out of Odin to close it while it is stuck downloading to the phone? and start the whole thing again? I did that before..isnt that the reason my phone doesnt work now ?

    thank you ...don't mean to take up all your time.:)

    Yes you need to reboot phone, and start process over. See what happens when phone reboots though.

    And you are right, this is the reason why your phone doesnt work.... Your essentially replacing all of the original firmware files back to stock DI09 and if this process fails, you soft brick the phone.

    Having the original firmware (which you do) and finally getting odin/phone to cooperate then your problems will be over.


    What have you done so far to try to get the flash to be successful?

    For me, and apparently others - The ODIN flash worked perfectly fine; phone re-starts clean, etc. (this is 100% for sure - it's easy to tell when your phone has been wiped clean). It is the "next step" OTA update that simply does NOT WORK, resulting in the stuck 'updating modem...' message for some number of minutes, eventually restarting the phone having failed. The update is called "SCH-I500_CommercialPackage_DI01ToEA28".

    I suspect that many of us are in the same boat; our phones seem to simply not be upgradeable OTA; Guessing/hoping that a complete ODIN package that has the full 2.2 will become available at some point, or perhaps an ODIN package that includes EA28 as a starting point.

    well i waited longer and and oden said it failed in the progress area.

    i've tried different cables, different usb slots, restarting computer.. what else can i try? Just keep downloading and pray?

    I'm going to try a different computer.

    This update was released a long time ago, and you probably would of had failure messages previusly trying to update to EA28.

    Someone had success by pulling battery, factory resetting phone after the DI01 update and redownloading the EA28 update.

    Turn off any running applications on your PC, disable any antivirus software as well. Something is interfering with your communication.

    Switching to another PC has also had success.
