    what does your screen in "bootloader" mode look like.. does it say "odin mode" at the top in red letters?

    Worked flawlessly. The hardest part was waiting for the Samsung drivers to install. It literally took about an hour.

    USB debugging is enabled. In the command prompt after entering everything i get - 'fastboot windows' not recognized as a internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Also I dont get the Android 1 in device manager either. I even downloaded drivers and pda again. Although pda does not connect in bootloader mode either. Is that why? Idk how to connect it when you have to turn the phone off to get it into bootloader. What am I doing wrong. Lord - I'm going to have to send it to one of you guys to do this for me.

    Finally got it. Had to erase and dl superboot again. Must've been a corrupt file I guess. Then I just made sure I fast booted with phone plugged in. Then it worked.
