OK, here is something to scratch your head about: I Did the Heimde (1.11) flashing with the stock VZW ROM (windows xp). Flash portion worked like a charm. The unit re-booted. The SAMSUNG screen appeared... and never went away. I waited a good 10 minutes. It never went any farther. per instructions, I tried the POWER+VOL to get into recovery to do the "wipe/factory reset" thing but I could not get in (I have a feeling I might not have done it correctly though). Then, per instructions, I unplugged device, waited a bit, plugged back in to attempt re-flashing and now I got this little image. I turn off the device but it comes back when I power it back on. If it is plugged in to the PC, this screen comes on by itself. Heimdel can see the device but FAILS when I try to flash. ideas?
