    Using Heimdall in Ubuntu 10.11 (or 11.10 I'm dyslexic sometimes whichever the newest is.)

    I wasn't able to get very far. I followed the steps exactly as in the thread.

    When I got to the code part of it, in the terminal, I got as far as this:

    Code (Text):
    1. heimdall detect
    2. Device detected
    3. the-master@Justins:~$ sudo heimdall flash --kernel root-zImage
    4. Heimdall v1.3.2, Copyright (c) 2010-2012, Benjamin Dobell, Glass Echidna

    23. ERROR: Failed to receive response!

    I can't get any further and can no longer use my phone. Can someone please help?

    Update: I tried to do it using the heimdall front end GUI, but it gave me the error "Tar header contains invalid file size." I hope this clears it up a little.

    Another Update: I've managed to get my phone restarted. I did this by downloading the pit from the phone.

    Update: I now have the superuser.apk on my phone but it does not seem to be functioning properly. I do not know how to get it to work. Please help

    Issue Resolved: I was using the wrong version of Heimdall. I had accidentally downloaded the latest version of the program instead of 1.3.1. 1.3.2 is not fond of the kernels that needed to be flashed. Now I feel like an idiot, I've been working on this all day, and once I figured out what was wrong, it took me 10 minutes to do.
