Default .ops file for odin?

what exactly is the .ops file that is needed for odin?
how do we edit one and/or create one for the ultra?

well i found out is can be opend/edited with notpad++
this is one from the prevail


Code:
0,mibib
1,qcsbl
2,oemsbl
3,amss
4,arm11boot
5,boot
6,recovery
7,system
8,data
9,csc
10,
i think i can figure out what to do with it or how to duplicate it for the ultra... but if anyone knows anything about it please inform me/us as to what exactly it is... all im good at is plug-n-play (if A does not work, try B, then C)... i will figure it out, but help will speed it along

i've been talking to interdpth on this and he said its not that simple. If you just use one from another phone you WILL brick your phone.. he did a few times trying to figure it out.. His phone is at samsung right now cause odin bricked it so hard.. let the experts do their magic.. I also talked to Hroark13 which is who got Odin working on the prevail and he said he had to do A LOT of searching to find a phone with an exact partition map to the prevail and finally found that the galaxy mini was. so he used the ops from that and renamed it for the prevail..

The ops for the prevail will not work for the ultra. you will brick your phone and will be sending it to samsung to be fixed if you try that.

Interdpth told me that there is no phone like the ultra so the ops has to be made and he has been working hard on this for quite a while. also, he told me that the block names on the phone eg. recovery is mmcblk0p8. in Odin its 6. it has a totaly different method of how it flashes everything.. Basically he had to just try and test till it was right and hope it didnt brick it too hard but eventually it did so he is waiting for it to come back to try again..

Thanks for helping and looking into it maverik, I know its not an easy task... but I do think if we come together as a team and work on it together and share info with each other we would have a better chance at getting it done. I know we have a lot of people with bricked phones that will be glad to test, they got nothing to loose and a great phone to gain. I'm not try to take away glory from anyone I just see a serious need to get odin done, that's why I'm posting finding for all to alaberate on. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way...

So anyone that can help out in any wat or form, please do, and share what you learn.

Oh im all about teaming up on it lol. thats what this awesome community is all about

That is exactly why I started to look into it is because so many people have bricked or semi bricked phones and I feel bad for them. wish I could help em all..

I don't think you came off as trying to steal anyones thunder smith and your right on the money.. we need odin bad!! I'm reluctant to do certain things because we dont have a way to get back. It really hinders development on a device until you get it.

Post what you got!!

I already have extracted the /system /data kernel and recovery from a stock rooted rom
tared em up and md5 checksumed them too but we need that ops made

oh and P.S. If you can boot to the samsung screen and the phone holds enough for your pc to detect it then I can save you!!!!! just P.M me and I'll be glad to help you get your phone back

Interdpth told me he just tried shit till he got it right. I don't know if he actually found a reference from another phone or what

what Hraork13 told me he did was he got the PHONE, PDA, and BOOT files from the prevail and looked at them in a hex editor

then he dowloaded the same odin files from other samsung phones until he found one that mached almost exactly (Galaxy Mini) and used the ops from that odin package and tested it. when it worked he just renamed it for his Odin package.

I have been doing this for the TU but haven't found one yet I've looked at about 6-7 different phones so far but I also havent had much time to spend on this... Family and work have consumed most of my time the past week or so..

a turn-key ops would be the fastest solution for us and it would save Interdpth a whole lot of headache as well. we just need a few people searching on this and we might just find one.

So,
1. find a list of Samsung phones
2. pick one
3. search for that phones odin package(if it has one)
4. use a HEX editor to open the TU files and files from whatever phone you chooes and compare them
5. If they match then you would try to find out a mount map of that phone as well.. Ask one of the devs in the forum to give you one
Quote:
adb shell
$su
#cat /proc/partitions
and it will print out all the mount points for that device. get em to paste it for you somwhere and see if it matches the TU's map. (really this part is more important than checking the odin packages) if the journaling system (ext4), the type of memory(EMMC), and the mount point numbers & types (dev/block/mmcblk0p(15) system) are all identical then we should be good with that ops file

that Ancora.ops for the galaxy wonder is looking pretty promising!! I'm on XDA right now trying to get a dev to give me a readout for the partitions right now. If it looks the same, we just might have a winner here..

Well... if you use yours and brick it... I'm sure you will find out the right combo by the end of the day... LOL ... there are a few people that have bricked phones.... maybe team Weaver would be a great option for someone. They could have a running phone in a few mins.
