    Have you tried using Odin to restore stock Gingerbread. ?

    There are other images too. Just Odin the one that you want. If you have not tried this, please read the thread and instructions thoroughly .

    I am downloading this file as I type :

    DOWNLOAD EJ06 Gingerbread Stock Image made by Koumajutsu

    http://bit.ly/AuxVgI

    Try a different browser . You're not trying to downloading this to your phone are you ?

    The link seems to be working fine . I've already got over half of it downloaded .

    EDIT: I'm using Google Chrome and it just finished downloading without a hitch .

    no i'm on my computer. i'm downloading the link you sent me. with all the other ones they would download and when i went to downloads to unzip it there wouldnt be an option for it. and it would say i couldnt open it.

    I just opened mine and it is all there . Are you using 7zip , winrar or winzip to open it ?

    The problem is not in the download , it's something on your end .

    Are you using a trial version of Winzip ?

    Try downloading and opening it with 7zip .

    Download

    Ok ,, here we go

    See were it says OPS ? Select that and go to the folder that you just unzipped . You then select the SPHM820.ops file

    You then select BOOT and select the SPHM820_EJ06_boot file

    You then select Phone and select the SPHM820_EJ06_phone file

    You then select PDA and select the SPHM820_EJ06_pda file

    After you have done all that >>>>> SELECT START and let it run .

    Just simply hit the button that says R/0 and it should switch to R/W.

    Won't download correctly with iexplorer.
    Tried it myself.
    Phones stock browser worked.
    Make sure you have a zip program installed to your pc.
    Winzip winrar etc.

    If you are on stock browser you may need the download crutch apk. It will allow you to download normally. Not sure if it is on Market but it has been included on many custom Roms.

    Dolphin HD downloads with no problems.
