    Please if someone can help me. I flashed samsung fascinate SCH-I500 with one click odin3 for samsung captivate(by mistake). Then it started showing the att logo. using homemade jig , i was able to trigger the download mode, but i think i flashed some wrong pit files that came along odin3 v1.7. I can flash the system stock, the kernel stock, but the stock pit and recovery fails. Also when stock system is flashed phone boot into recovery and shows

    (Invalid argument)
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1

    I'm getting the exact same behavior after making similar mistakes. :wacko:

    I haven't found a fix yet, but I'm still looking. I'll let you know if I figure it out.

    GSM flash wont make a difference. Only thing really different is radio reference to the GSM chips that are not there. Follow steps in above post link and all should be good.

    all you have to do is disable voodoo and flash back to your stock ROM using odin. it will remove the root and you can start over.

    ok just realized you changed your PIT. there are a couple of big mistakes here.

    try odin again with stock TAR file, but only load the proper pda file. leave PIT blank (like you should have in the first place, lol)

    the golden rule is you cannot brick a galaxy s! although you may be testing it's limits.

    Not sure if you need the stock rom or not, but you can find it here.

    it depends on the rom package you install, odin will flash whatever file. if you flash the stock tar file it has the bloatware pre-packaged and will re-install all of it. if you install a custom rom it will contain whatever is in the file, usually the bloatware is removed.

    Odin will not recognize facinate

    I made the same mistake up loading the captivate files onto my facinate and now I can't get odin to even register my facinate. All I ever get is the AT&T logo. HELP!

    reinstall dl09:


    you will need:

    1) odin installed on your pc (i use odin3, think there is a version4 also)
    How to Upgrade Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Firmware Leaked ROM Odin Flash
    2) the samsung drivers or kies installed on your pc
    3) download the dl09 TAR file from here
    Its not right that XDA gets all the love... ***OFFICIAL DL09 Odin Here*** - Android Forums

    there is also a stripped down one at xda

    4) open odin, in the pda box add the dl09 file, take out your battery
    5) plug in usb then push volume down, you will see a "downloading" screen, if not keep trying
    6) re-insert battery
    7) press start on odin, wait for odin to show green pass.

    your done. total time ~10 min

    you can google various step by step instrcutions and videos on unlockr.com

    Still won't go into download mode

    Still can't get the phone to go into download mode. I've reinstalled the drivers, even tried drivers downloaded from 2 different locations just in case 1 was bad. I've rebooted the computer a few times to reset the usb ports and they seem to work fine with other devices but still nothing happens when I follow your directions verbatim.

    The only thing that it will do still is loop the AT&T logo.

    This thing is jacked huh?

    hmmm, the software should not effect going into download mode. that mode is hard set. make sure you:

    1. take the battery out,
    2. make sure odin is on,
    2. hold down volume, (do not hold down power, only hold power down if it doesn't work after few tries)
    3. plug it into the usb port,
    4. then release power.
    5. you can replace battery at this point.

    you can not brick a galaxy s.

    I watched your video...maybe I'm tired but I think you missed something.

    Plug cord in computer (not in phone)...
    Press and hold down the DOWN volume key only and then plug cord in your phone...
    Continue to hold volume key down

    Do NOT hold down power button during this process...

    You should see the shovel after about 5 seconds or so. If not, try it again!
