you rock sephail
god knows why samsung encypts open source sofware. wake up Samsung, linux is about clear txt, cvs, git
Actually could you post a software to get and decrypt it? I think that would be a lot more useful. Thanks
the next logical step would be a list of whats available i think, great work btw.
And I just remembered is the new I4 firmware there yet?
wow, well done sephail
i think you are the 1st person that can source, decrypt and provide software like this.
Shame samsung has forced us to look for a back door but what option has the idiots left us with
you sir are a legend
are you able to find august/sept csc's?
g8 is old on every networks part. o2 went to h6 after g8
http://fus.samsungmobile.com/Phone_Binary/6/GT-i7500I7500O2UIH2I7500XXIH6I7500XXIH6_500.zip.enc <-- thats the latest o2 one before ii4 which it looks like samsung have not put it up for NPS yet
Does anyone on here work for Samsung? An insider than can get hold of I4 perhaps?
The moment they do that is the moment I'll put my Galaxy on ebay and stop preaching about great Samsung phones.
Thanks sephail for the firmware. Is it possible to flash just the csc onto a phone that is already running H8?
So far i've extracted the cache.img and put it in it's own tar file. I have then gone and loaded Odin and then selected the OPS file. Next I have then selected the CSC file pointing it at my cache.tar. I then set my phone up into download mode and connect it to my computer and see that Odin recognizes it. I click start and it says "Check Image Files". Am I missing a step?
Wouldn't the rest of the files flash on a older version of firmware?
Ok made there files:-
cache.tar that conatains these files.
Also made a pda.tar file that contains these files:-
I select these 2 files in odin and start but get this error
<1> odin mode.. check platform verification.
<1> odin mode.. do file mapping..
<1> check download environment.
<1> e - big partition size!!
<1> Delete Comm3engine
i used to have this problem, no matter what firmware i tried to install.
what worked for me was doing the install from another computer. don't know what caused the problem on mine.
maybe related to your problem. maybe not.
As an alternative method you could try using the modified recovery image to apply the CSC. You need to extract the zip from the image though. That can be done with unyaffs: unyaffs - Project Hosting on Google Code
The resulting .zip is a valid OTA and can be applied as update.zip from the recovery menu.
has this method been tried on the Galaxy?
I haven't tried it, but i don't see any other reason why it wouldn't work than the signature within the zip file. If the recovery image doesn't know the signature, it might not allow the update to proceed.
Other than that, the zip file is the same as the update.zip file, including a valid update script within the package.
So you need to sign the package with SignApk before applying the update. Other than that, it's a working OTA.
So, to recap: extract cache.img from the tar, unyaffs the img to get the zip and pass the zip through SignApk, apply as an OTA through the modified recovery, profit!
Remember to wipe your system after applying, the CSC update screws up your system pretty bad (it's the same as seen when upgrading from G-series to H-series)
And now to restore the backup and return to a CSC free life
Not been near a computer in several days and then I return to find you've cracked it! Good work!
Wondering if you can give me a PM to let me know what the missing ingredient was?
Could you upload it somewhere else like say megaupload? I can't get files from rapidshare. Thx
Does this use the UK O2 CSC?
