omeganz101: Kind of silly and quite a ridiculous error on my part, I flashed a .PIT file using Odin 1.85 which was intended for the I19100G, but obviously I have the I9100. Now this bricked the device which can no longer power on nor boot in to download mode. I have sent the device to Omnitech repairs in Auckland.

Would you say that it's reversible ?


Thanks


Sounds pretty bad... Yes, it should be reversible, fixable, but not by us - it will need a JTAG reprograming (like they do in the factory), so hopefully Omnitech can do that. Otherwise there are other firms overseas that can.

Note - there should not be any physical damage to the device; you have just stuffed the software royally. So if they say it needs a new mainboard etc, inform them it only needs a JTAG reprogramming. But decide for yourself what works out cheaper.

And let us know how it all works out - it might even make it into my FAQ to help other people in the future if there is enough good info lol. If ok?




Sure that would be great.

I'm waiting for the hear back from Omnitech's technical inspector for the outcome of his findings. If as you say it simply needs JTAG reprogramming then I will enquire if they perform this service, otherwise if not, a You Tube link was posted two posts up in relation to an individual who resides in the United States who runs a JTAG service. Seems to be the cheaper option at $79.00 NZD where as Omnitech charges $45.00 for inspection, and $85.00 for Software fault corrections, but seeing as they are local I think I'll wait to hear from them next week.

Note to self, in future look closely at files you flash on you're phone. Being careless as I have been leads to a non functioning $800.00 smartphone.

Will get back to you. 


This is the reason why I prefer and recommend using Mobile Odin for most flashing scenarios. It doesn't allow one to flash the PIT / EFS / *BL for safety reasons (you shouldn't have to in the first place); it doesn't increment the flash counter; plus you have all the convenience of flashing a ROM from within the OS - without requiring a PC and without needing to manually reboot into recovery! If you love flashing custom ROMs, this tool is a *must* have!

hey omeganz101

My phone was sent away about a week ago to the states for this service, work outs alot cheaper than getting it done here :D

Flashed the wrong PIT here too, had an SGS firmware in the same directory as my SGS2.

For those running LPH based ICS roms there is now a new kernel (modified cf-root) which removes the sd card bug.

I've been running it for a couple days now with no problems whatsoever. No more flashing kernels or unmounting/mounting sd cards. :)
There is not yet a new thread for the kernel so the existing Siyah Kernel thread now contains both GB and ICS versions. Remember to get the correct one when downloading...

Info about kernel: SiyahKernel ICS-R(etouched) 3.0alpha4-LPH
This is a repack of CFRoot kernel with the following additions:

  • Runs on both Samsung and CM9 Roms. CM9 will not be supported until the CM9 team prepares a release candidate.
  • Auto EFS Backup
  • Custom CWM touch recovery based on v5.5.0.4 with gesture support. (Thanks to sk8erwitskil@XDA)
  • somewhat lighter initramfs (removed some files and added them as payload) for faster boot
  • some performance tweaks (from several sources, mostly from thunderbolt scripts)
  • ExTweaks interface to configure some kernel parameters. The config parameters are limited because Samsung has not released ICS Kernel source yet but you can still tweak some hotplug parameters.
  • Default governor is noop (because we don’t have SIO yet). You can change it using ExTweaks app.
  • Removing+reinstalling root support in ExTweaks interface for people who needs to run some apps which require that your phone is not rooted. I needed to have this feature to run a bank application which refuses to run on my rooted phone. You need to install ExTweaks from the market to be able to use this.

I've never got a single update through OTA for my phone, it's always been via Kies.

I'm flashing the polish version now, downloaded via torrent link found on XDA, had the file within half hour so faster to torrent it rather than use a file sharing mirror. Flashing now, hopefully all goes well.

If anyone is wondering torrent link (as well as lots of other helpful information about the release) is in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1544111 (Quoted already in above replies) Torrent link pg 10.
