    So.. i have a Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570L since last year. I bought it in Colombia, but since i moved to Germany i wanted to unlock the sim so i could use it here. I read several threads and tutorials and did the "dd if=/dev/block/stl5 of=/sdcard/stl5.rfs" thing, but the cellphone bricked. Now it's stucked in a blinking "Samsung" (like this Samsung GT-S5570 BRICK - YouTube) and i don't know what to do.

    I searched how to unbrick it and everywhere says that it is done using Odin. The problem is i own a Mac with no Windows emulator and i don't have a Windows or anyone that can lend me one. The solution suggested was using One Click, but when i set my phone in Download mode, plug it and try to run the program a pop up says that There is a "Unspecified Error. Is your phone plugged in? Is it in Download/Softbrick Mode?"

    So, i don't know what to do. I can't use the Warranty because i'm in another country, i can't use Odin because i'm in a Mac, One Click doesn't work. I'm trapped and i really don't want to lose my phone...

    Although I use Linux I have a windows boot on my desktop which I use for stuff like this because that's just what all the easy walkthroughs use. But Heimdall looks like it should work on a Mac. Haven't tried it though. Download Heimdall Suite 1.3.2
