    Okay, hope this will work (fingers crossed) ONLY FOR BRICKED PHONES THAT WERE REPARTITIONED!!!!

    Put phone in download mode & plug in to usb

    IN ODIN

    click PIT and load .pit file
    click PDA and load test-recovery.tar
    check the re-partition box
    check auto reboot box

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/24414153/test-recovery.tar
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/24414153/Attain-4G.pit

    Hopefully this will at least get the phone to boot, but it will not get data to work, and may not be able to place phone calls, there is no modem.bin in this .tar because I haven't been able to find it. I think I may know where it is so anyone willing to test a few .tar files try this one first, give me some feedback, and then pm me and I will give you another .tar to try.

    I hope you get it mobileplay...I yanked my cord out as soon as I saw repartition was checked after selecting the 4G pit file but I guess i was too late...I guess that repartition is real quick once you hit start.

    edit: unfortunately it wont tell you where they are :/

    Thats what I am having trouble with, figuring out where they are, any advice on that? I figured I would try them by size because the modems partition I would think wouldnt be too big... Advice on this would be greatly appreciated. And everything you have helped me with already is greatly appreciated.

    I believe the movinand is bml7, here is what I found in it. Been going through these for days and still haven't got them all figured out.

    Hope we can get this figured out, if anyone else is willing to help I will rar the files so that everyone can help until we get this figured out.
