    My phone froze while i was putting on a rom. I odin it it reset but hung up at the android screen. I have used several roms with no problems at all now when I go into download odin cant find my phone it keeps saying plug in your phone. I have pulled the battery several times also pulled my sd card and sims card. I am running windows 7 and xp on another computer. I have also tried different usb ports. When I plug in my phone it charges but thats it. Is there something else to try that I have forgot about?

    well after about 75 times of pulling the battery odin finaly found it so I am back up and running

    Did you put it in download mode? I forgot once, and it was very frustrating.

    Everything is flashing fine, til it gets to system. The green bar gets to 50% and the time just keeps ticking 20+mins...

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    which rom are you trying to flash? are you doing a kernel/ phone/ bootloader?
  11. riayn7

    Warheads PDA. It looked like boot and kernel flashed fine..

    rudoFF Well-Known Member

    I'm pretty sure when you flash warheads, it will replace whatever kernel you have on there...

    so you flashed the phone...and boot already? and now you're trying to do the pda and it gets stuck? what does it say/ what is it doing on the phone?

    Time just keeps on ticking in odin... how long is it supposed to take? I've retried but it never finishes...

    did the phone ever reboot or anything? if it is just stuck in the flashing process...then try pulling the battery...put it back in download mode and try again.

    It never rebooted, now I'm stuck in Odin on "setup connection"... I've tried 2 different computers :(

    phone wont boot, stays on samsung screen...

    and odin is stuck at "setup connection"

    did i break my phone?

    rudoFF Well-Known Member

    did you battery pull and start all over...or are you keeping the phone where it's stuck and moving from computer to computer?
  18. riayn7

    riayn7 Member

    yes, I've pulled the battery numerous times and get the same results..

    try flashing a different rom. like dots, or a galaxy rom. see if that does anything. if it does the same thing...try to flash the stock 1.5 factory rom package (boot/pda/phone all in one file instead of all 3 separately, if you can't find it I'll link you).

    make sure when you plug your phone in if you have windows xp to download and install every installation it tells you to install and download even if you think you have evrything . cause i was doing that then i was like hey what if i install eerything when it pops up or shows things i thought i installed . so i did that and it was other additonal sofware drivers for my behold 2 that i needed and as soon as that downloaded i reconected my phone and then it recognized it and bam it came up and press start and flashed . took about 6mins.

    preety easy sorta .
    i had to struggle a bit though it really is easy doe.

    supose to have samsung mdem and something else
    its like 2 or 3 different stuff u need to get i thnk modem and sometihng else then it will recognze it

    I can not get the drivers to load. It just keeps coming up saying that the driver did not install correctly.
    I am running windows 7 64.
    Can someone please help?

    you will have to manually install the drivers from Device Manager

    Thanks! I got the driver to load, but ODIN installer will still not see my phone.
    I hate to keep bothering you, but is there anything I need to do before I follow these procedures?

    I've asked this question in another thread, but haven't gotten an answer.

    I followed the above instructions to use BH_MAN 1.6(noTouchWiz) on my phone.
    It appears that I have got it working since the phone shows that its in 1.6 now.

    My concern is the BOOTLOADER and PHONE. I didn't flash those because the instructions didn't say to, but I've seen messages saying:

    "ONLY FLASH BOOT / PHONE Once.... Once Flashed You Only Have to Flash the PDA File if doing a Restore, Never flash the Phone & Boot file more than Once!!!!!!"

    I came from a stock 1.5 factory phone.

    So should I flash OPS and PDA again, along with BOOT and PHONE?

    I don't want to run into problems regarding this issue in the future, so if someone could answer I would greatly appreciate it. A clear brief explanation on the purpose of each would be even more helpful so I could help newcomers like me on the forum.
