If you are trying to get into download mode (Odin), that is correct.

If this helped in anyway don't forget the thanks button.

Is the system file in the OP the equivalent of an HTC ruu or a Moto sbf? I'm trying to revive a friend's TU, but both stock and CWM recovery are giving me the E:misc not found error and rebooting immediately. I'm wondering if he somehow managed to corrupt the misc partition and if the system file would overwrite it. The phone boots to the lock screen and then loops. It does go into download mode, and I've flashed both CWM and the full set of return-to-stock files. I'm reasonably sure that I unplugged it from the computer quickly enough to prevent CWM from being overwritten, but even if I hadn't, would that have affected the stock recovery?

The E:misc error is on all our tu's that have cwm.

Did you load in recovery before cwm then connected to computer and took the battery out?
If not then at first reboot, the android will over write cwm and return to stock recovery.

If this helped in some small way, don't forget the thanks button.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you're asking, but I have alternated between stock and CW recoveries, so at some point stock was on before CWM. Neither of them would load. I removed the battery as soon as the phone was connected to the computer, and as soon as it powered down and Odin gave the "closing serial connection" message I unplugged it.

As soon as Odin changes from recovery to (I believe it says) rebooting, unplug your device. DO NOT LET ODIN REBOOT YOUR PHONE. Then put battery back in and go into cwm, and flash tu_root.

I was watching the phone's screen, and the moment it was done processing the download from Odin (at which point it blanked) I unplugged it. Same error when I tried to go to recovery.

OK so when the screen went black (process of rebooting) you disconnected the phone from the computer? Then put battery in, and tried to go into recovery?

Correct. I tried to take a video of it, but it's rather hard to make out the exact moment when I'm unplugging it (or much of anything else) due to the lighting. As Odin is running, the text covers the majority of the screen, and then it abruptly blinks off; that's when I pull the cord. Then I replace the battery, hold Volume Down and Power until I see the Samsung splash, at which point I release the Power button but keep holding volume down. Depending on which recovery I've flashed, I either see Andy jumping out of the box for a couple seconds, and then an error about E:misc and a missing logfile for roughly a second, or the CWM logo and about half a second of E:misc errors. Then it reboots and will bootloop until I pull the battery.

It's a Samsung, the back panel says Boost, and the model number from behind the battery is SPH-M930. He told me that it was a Transform Ultra. I don't have the original packaging and I can't get it far enough into Android to check settings to verify beyond that. This is a stretch, since it went sour on him, but the cable I'm using is Motorola. Is the TU one of the Samsungs that's particularly picky about cables? The only Samsung cable I might be able to get ahold of right now is from a feature phone.

Sorry I was a little slow. You have a Samsung transform ultra.

Well, hmmmmmm....

You can get into Odin. And Odin sees your device but beyond that your in a boot loop. Hmmmmm. Give me a moment. I think I may have seen something that may or may not help.

The update is probably for the baseband. They sent out two updates in less than a month (I believe). Are you familiar with build.prop?

Our odin is quite different from you mainstrean phone. It wont work for flashing Touchwiz devices. TW devices require a different partition map all together.
the mapping file for our devices is the .ops file(non-touchwiz) and the GS requires a .pit(touchwiz) for mapping. search XDA for your device. you will find everything you need for your device there as NGD1 suggest above

Also for instructions on how to flash odin for your device, you might check youtube.

So I'm having trouble doing this. Some of the files are down but I've managed to get everything from various places. I have a Boost Transform Ultra and when I run odin and do the onepackage and select the stock ROM, odin goes through its steps and reboots, but I'm still on megatron. What am I doing wrong?

Did you make sure you're phone has usb debugging on, and sometimes people forget but are you putting the phone into download mode before using ODIN?? Also do you have the latest Samsung USB Drivers for Mobile Phones installed on your computer before attempting any of this?? All of these steps must be done before ODIN can properly flash the stock rom back onto your Transform Ultra...


Hope this helps, hit thanks if I did help you in some way...

USB Debugging is on, and I'm definitely in download mode and also have the latest drivers.

I extract the tu_system_bads3ctor.tar, and I am running the Odin Multidownloader as administrator.

I select the ops file as directed, and everything is checked except reset time and debug only.

I select my one-package, being the tu_system_bads3ctor.tar

odin goes through

This, and simply reboots the phone. No stock ROM is installed. I'm still on Megatron. Why is it doing this?

It could be that the files are bad, or missing a critical piece of information to make the change properly, but I can't say for sure as I don't own a boost TU. When I've tried this method for my sprint TU, either Odin would crash, or everything would freeze at the point where the files were supposed to be getting pushed to the phone.

If you absolutely need to return to stock, Loota has a CWM backup somewhere aroud here, or chevanlol360 has a flashable zip, I believe. Best of luck.

I currently DO have a stock zip, but I don't recall where the heck I got it from, and on top of that I don't know whether it is Boost or Sprint. I'll have to find a definitely stock Boost zip, then I can restore it, remove root if I need to and then flash stock kernel and recovery.

Still not sure why Odin is being weird. My MD5 is matching up.

Would anyone have that zip file by chance? I'll of course be looking for it myself as well.

Or I have the Boost Stock ROM ---> http://db.tt/QAslqGPr this is to be used in cwm. Reboot phone into cwm, install from SD card. Find this zip, and install. Confirmed working stock ROM from at least 2 user not myself as I am on sprint.

I would like to post a final resolution to this problem above. Download mode works, but bootloop when using recovery or regular boot.

The following symptoms must ALL apply:
Phone must be able to boot into download mode (volume down + camera + power)
Phone must NOT be able to boot into recovery (volume down + power)
Phone must flash valid files in download mode without error (no error, but phone still boot loops)
If out of anger and frustration, you press the power button and squeeze the life out of the phone. IT WILL BOOT EVERY TIME AND NOT FREEZE PROVIDED YOU DON'T LET GO.

The following symptoms will happen randomly:
Phone actually boots once in a blue moon, but eventually freezes


If the above applies, like the original post, then this is the fix for you

If you take the 5 silver screws and the two black screws off, open the back case.
Take the silver radio interference shield off. On the bottom left you will see a black ribbon cable. if you look at the plastic cover you just took off, you will see a rectangle piece of metal shielding. You want to fold up a strip of paper into the same shape as that metal shielding. This puts pressure on the faulty ribbon cable. Put every thing back together. make sure the paper between the metal shield and the ribbon cable is thick enough that once everything is screwed in, it still works. WILL NOT WORK UNTIL ALL THE SCREWS ARE BACK IN. (Cheap test, put everything on, but leave the screws out, press on the case and see if the phone turns on, if so, try the screws, if it doesn't work then, add more paper)

Can't seem to get any of the download links to work. Everytime I try...it takes me to some wallpaper download page. I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what. Thanx in advance for any help.

The OP of this thread may not have the files anymore, thus the broken links. What are you looking for specifically? I'm sure everyone here will be able to provide you the files you need, or at least will point you in the right direction.

Just to get you started, you can find odin at this thread if you don't have it already.
