    Default [How to] Factory Restore (or Fix a Bricked Phone)


    There are nine different procedures listed below:

    - Flash/Restore to Gingerbread FC09 (Current official OS)
    - Flash/Restore to Gingerbread EL30
    - Flash/Restore to Froyo EC05
    - Flash/Restore to Froyo EB13
    - Restore to Eclair DI18 Using Windows
    - OSX, Linux and Alternative Windows Method for Eclair
    - Restore to Froyo DK28
    - Flash Froyo DK28 Modem Only
    - Odin Workaround for Ubuntu"



    Make sure your battery is fully charged before attempting anything in this thread. If you did not heed this warning and your phone died while flashing, read this post.

    *** Trouble Shoot for all Odin Packages... Read below... ***

    If your phone is not being recognized by Odin, try the following.

    - Use a different USB computer port

    - Use a different USB cable

    If for some reason Odin does ever give you a FAIL or the process hangs up for more than 5 minutes in one spot then do the following.

    - Pull your battery out of your device and leave it out.

    - Plug in your device via USB cable and connect it to your computer.

    - Then boot into Download Mode (hold 1 on physical keyboard and press power).

    - Run the Odin package.

    - When completed and you get the Green PASS, you can pop your battery back in and then reboot the phone and you should be good to go.

    Note: Some devices have given some trouble and you have to attempt this twice to get it to work. Also make sure all anti virus software is off/disabled. One last option is remove your sdcard if everything else fails.


    *** USERS RUNNING MTD FORMAT PLEASE READ ***

    If you are running your device under the new MTD format, example CleanGB and other MTD based ROMs and need to restore back to stock you will need to use the Gingerbread package below along with the following PIT file to reset the partition.

    (Download)

    Take that PIT file and place it in the PIT slot in Odin along with the Gingerbread FC09/EL30 TAR file below.
    Click Repartition and Auto Reboot. (Note if first attempt fails with a SET PARTITION error then run it again WITHOUT the repartition checked)
    Continue with instructions below.

    New: Flash/Restore to Gingerbread FC09 (Procedure #1)

    Thanks to Whosdaman for initially providing this.

    1. Download and install the Samsung_Mobile_Driver_V1.3.800_For_SPH-d700_Epic_4G.zip for your computer
    2. Download the (extract its content to a place on your computer)
    3. Download the
    4. Download the most important part of all,
    5. Power off your Epic 4g
    6. Open the keyboard press and hold "1" and Power at the same time to enter "Download Mode"
    7. Run/Open Odin v1.87 on your computer, connect your device via USB cable and verify near the upper left hand side you have in the "COM" box it lights up in Yellow with some numbers (these do not matter) that a connection has been established.
    8. Select PDA and then the "SPH-D700-FC09-8Gb-REL.tar.md5" file
    9. Select PIT and then the "victory_8G_100528.pit" file.
    10. Click start and let it go.. Should only take a few minutes and you will reboot into Gingerbread FC09 v2.3.6

    Any troubles see the top of the page for the Odin trouble shoots.


    Flash/Restore to Gingerbread EL30 (Procedure #2)
    0) Download and install the appropriate drivers for your Windows system:



    Plug your Epic into your computer via USB and let Windows recognize your phone/configure the drivers. After Windows is done with the drivers, unplug your Epic.

    1) Download the following files from the site below and follow the instructions provided here.
    (Credit XDA Developers)
    of ACS (THANKS! QB! )

    You will need to download the Odin+Pit package & the Stock EL30 TAR package.

    If you have problems with Odin recognizing or flashing your phone in the following steps, you should first try using a different USB port and/or cable. If you are still having problems, you can try uninstalling the Samsung drivers you downloaded from the link in Step 0, and download and install (select "Software" at the bottom; it should say "Device(Install),USB Driver (Software) (ver.1.0)") instead.


    2) Boot your phone into download mode by powering off your phone holding "1" on the keyboard and holding power until you see a yellow sign with an android digging.

    3) Extract "Odin3+v1.61.zip" into a folder on your computer, then launch "Odin3+v1.61.exe".

    4) Press the "PDA" button and select "SPH-D700-EL30-8Gb-REL.tar.md5". On the left side of the Odin screen, make sure only "Auto Reboot" is checked.

    5) Plug in the USB cable (if it's done right you should see a yellow Com device light up in one of the rectangular boxes).

    6) Click Start and wait until you get a green box at the top that says success. Your phone should reboot.

    Note: DO NOT unplug your phone while Odin is flashing your phone. Unplugging early can cause your Epic to be permanently bricked. If Odin appears frozen/stuck, wait at least 5 minutes before unplugging and trying again (after 5 minutes any process Odin is attempting to complete will have ended).


    Troubleshooting
    If you're having problems getting Odin to recognize your phone, try uninstalling the Samsung drivers you downloaded from the link above, and download and install (select "Software" at the bottom; it should say "Device(Install),USB Driver (Software) (ver.1.0)") instead.

    If Odin does recognize your phone but is failing during installation of the system files, you may have a bad download. Try downloading the files again.

    If your phone turns off and does not respond at all, remove and replace the battery to get it working again.

    If you can't get your phone into download mode or Odin to recognize the device, then try removing your battery and plug your phone in and boot into download mode/connect to Odin WITHOUT your battery in the phone. (Credit: Android Central's own DroidXcon)

    Another troubleshoot is removing your sd card can sometimes make a difference.


    *** USERS RUNNING MTD FORMAT PLEASE READ ***

    If you are running your device under the new MTD format, example CleanGB and other MTD based ROMs and need to restore back to stock you will need to use the Froyo EC05 package below along with the following PIT file to reset the partition.

    New: of the below procedure.

    Please read the entire guide before you start.
    Notice the nice picture at the bottom that shows you how to do anything you might be unsure about.

    Restore to Eclair DI18 Using Windows (Procedure #5)
    Step 0. Download and install the appropriate drivers for your Windows system:



    Plug your Epic into your computer via USB and let Windows recognize your phone/configure the drivers. After Windows is done with the drivers, unplug your Epic.

    Step 1. Download and extract Odin, my new most favorite wonder utility.
    |

    Step 2. Download the Eclair-DI18 Odin tar file.


    Step 3. Download the .pit


    Step 4. Disconnect your phone from the pc and open Odin

    Step 5. Turn off your phone. Then hold the "1" key on your keyboard while powering the device on. This puts the phone into Download mode. (PS love the pic of the cleaning android)


    Credit for picture goes to

    Step 6. Connect your phone (you should see Odin put a Com4 or something like that in the first box. The actual number is NOT important what is important is something popped up there when you connected your device, meaning ODIN can see it)

    Step 7. In the right half of Odin, press the PIT button, and select your .pit file.

    Step 8. Check the PDA box, and press the PDA button. Select the SPH-D700-DI18-8Gb-REL.tar (if it is named SPH-D700-DI18-8Gb-REL.tar.md5 rename it by removing the .md5 at the end) you downloaded in Step 2.

    Step 9. In the left half of Odin, check only the "Auto Reboot" and "Debug En" boxes. Make sure everything else is unchecked.

    Step 10. Hit start. Watch the progress bar, and wait for it to finish.

    Note: DO NOT unplug your phone while Odin is flashing your phone. Unplugging early can cause your Epic to be permanently bricked. If Odin appears frozen/stuck, wait at least 5 minutes before unplugging and trying again (after 5 minutes any process Odin is attempting to complete will have ended).




    Troubleshooting
    If you're having problems getting Odin to recognize your phone, try uninstalling the Samsung drivers you downloaded from the link above, and download and install (select "Software" at the bottom; it should say "Device(Install),USB Driver (Software) (ver.1.0)") instead.

    If Odin does recognize your phone but is failing during installation of the system files, you may have a bad download. Try downloading the files again.

    Some users have had success by not including the .pit file in their installation.

    If your phone turns off and does not respond at all, remove and replace the battery to get it working again.


    OSX, Linux and Alternative Windows Method for Eclair
    This guide was created by member aerospacial using Windows (OSX and Linux may need to make minor adjustments to this method):





    Downloaded the files from: Heimdall Glass Echidna
    *** Just in case, extract all files to one folder... extract both the heimdall folder and the ROM folder as well.
    At the bottom of the page you will find latest software package. Package includes:
    1 folder: includes a program to install specific drivers for this program
    4 files: including heimdall - frontend which has a user interface (the one I used to run)
    1 txt file: help guide pretty simple.

    I recommend heimdall for those that are having many issues or don't get Odin to work (like me). Odin is much simpler.
    To use heimdall with epic follow the instructions on the txt file:

    These instructions were written for Windows Vista / Server 2008 however the producedure
    should be essentially the same for all supported versions of Windows (XP onwards).

    Driver Installation Instructions:

    1. Put your Samsung Galaxy S into download mode and plug it in.

    2. Run zadig.exe included in the Drivers subdirectory.

    3. From the menu chose Options -> List All Devices.

    4. From the USB Device list chose "Samsung USB Composite DEvice".

    5. Press "Install Driver", click "Yes" to the prompt and if you receive
    a message about being unable to verify the publisher of the driver
    click "Install this driver software anyway".

    6. Done

    Once done with these steps, follow the following:
    Flashing Firmware with Heimdall Frontend:

    1. Fully charge your device (use the wall charger as it's faster).

    2. Download a decrypted Samsung Galaxy S ROM and extract it to a directory.

    3. If the ROM is provided as one of more archives (nested or otherwise),
    extract them all to the same location.

    NOTE: If you want to use the CSC then extract it last.

    3. Open Heimdall Frontend.

    4. Put your Galaxy S device into download mode and plug it in.

    5a. For each file you wish to flash use "Browse" to select the file. (These file can be extracted from the .tar files, match the files to the ones being asked for)

    5b. IF YOUR PHONE IS BRICKED (like mine was) the field for data needs to use a different file, use the one found here: RapidShare AG, Cham, Switzerland

    5c. Also the .pit file was not necessary either.

    6. Press "Start".

    Note: DO NOT unplug your phone while Heimdall is flashing your phone. Unplugging early can cause your Epic to be permanently bricked. If Odin appears frozen/stuck, wait at least 5 minutes before unplugging and trying again (after 5 minutes any process Heimdall is attempting to complete will have ended).


    7. Heimdall Frontend will display the progress and inform you when the
    flash is complete.

    If all goes well then it should work. It worked for me. (If you get some type of error but still boots, try going into recovery mode and doing a factory erase/swipe.)


    New: Restore to Froyo DK28
    0) Download and install the appropriate drivers for your Windows system:



    Plug your Epic into your computer via USB and let Windows recognize your phone/configure the drivers. After Windows is done with the drivers, unplug your Epic.

    2) Boot your phone into download mode by powering off your phone holding "1" on the keyboard and holding power until you see a yellow sign with an android digging.

    3) Extract "Odin3+v1.61andepic.pit.zip" into a folder on your computer, then launch "Odin3+v1.61.exe".

    4) Press the "PIT" button and select "victory_8G_100528.pit", then press the "PDA" button and select "SPH-D700-DK28-8Gb-REL.tar.md5". On the left side of the Odin screen, make sure only "Auto Reboot" is checked.

    5) Plug in the USB cable (if it's done right you should see a yellow Com device light up in one of the rectangular boxes).

    6) Click Start and wait until you get a green box at the top that says success. Your phone should reboot.

If Odin appears frozen/stuck, wait at least 5 minutes before unplugging and trying again (after 5 minutes any process Odin is attempting to complete will have ended).

    If you get an error that says "md5 hash is invalid", try starting again from Step 1d and only use "SPH-D700-DK28-8Gb-REL.tar.md5", omitting the "victory_8G_100528.pit" file. You can also try removing the ".md5" from "SPH-D700-DK28-8Gb-REL.tar.md5" and flashing with and without the "victory_8G_100528.pit" file.

    New: Odin Workaround for Ubuntu
    The Samsung phone has a different USB signature depending on whether it is normally running (or in download/DL mode, with the yellow digger icon). So I had to start the phone in DL mode, under Ubuntu (or whatever flavor of Linux you use), then look at it via the lsusb command. You'll notice that it is listed differently in DL mode than when the phone is just normally booted and you plug it in.

    So, what I did was to verify that Linux picked it up while in DL mode (using the lsusb command), it did.

    Next I start VirtualBox (I imagine it is very similar using VMWare or KVM) but before I start my Windows virtual machine, I bring up its' settings and under USB I removed existing USB filters and then clicked to add a new filter (VirtualBox will query the Linux system to find available Plugged-in devices).. You should see your phone here. Mine was listed as something like "Gadget Serial". I included pictures that show you that the phone advertises itself differently depending on the mode it's in (different USB productID).

    Once you've got that USB filter setup in VirtualBox, you can keep the phone connected and just launch your Windows VM. Then you can just launch Odin, In my case, when I launched Windows and Odin, I already had the phone attached and it just worked. Odin showed my phone connected and I went ahead with flashing.

    1. [optionally] restart Linux - Had to do this on a few occasions
    2. Put phone in DL (Download) mode - keyboard's 1 key plus power button
    3. do an lsusb command in Linux and find your phone (lsusb -v gives you all details)
    4. Start VirtualBox and create a USB filter
    5. Launch Windows
    6. Launch Odin
    7. Hopefully you'll see the device there and can proceed.


    Note: DO NOT unplug your phone while Odin is flashing your phone. Unplugging early can cause your Epic to be permanently bricked. If Odin appears frozen/stuck, wait at least 5 minutes before unplugging and trying again (after 5 minutes any process Odin is attempting to complete will have ended).


    ** I can not 100% confirm this but my only success has been on a particular USB port. It might just be coincidence (I'm thinking it is), but until I'm able to confirm it, it wouldn't kill you to try an alternate USB port if one fails after rebooting Linux.

    Default Odin from DG17 to DI18

    Yes you would use the same odin steps starting back at your first upgrade, from dg17 to dg27. Let odin complete it will reboot the phone if sucessful and you will appear on dg27. Check your phones version numbers to confirm. All is okay run odin again and do the next upgrade from dg27 to di07. Repeat until your at di18.

    I know its a lot of work, downloading is the worst part. The actual odin process only takes about 5 minutes or so. If this all works I will be happy for you and also hapy that I got you threw it and ready for your froyo update which we can tackle when we get to that point.

    Good luck, you have Android Central riding shotgun!
    I am paypal'ng you at least money for a beer! you've been so insanely helpful, it seems unreal. Most forum people are so busy being rude and impatient with everyone!!!
    So refreshing!
    Thanks but no need to pay, my reward will be knowing that we tried everything possible regardless of the outcome. I'm confident that this can work. Odin is what Sammy uses to flash phones, the utility was leaked by accident and its been a life saver since.
    OH ****. i noobed out and forgot
    Step 9. In the left half of Odin, check only the "Auto Reboot" and "Debug En" boxes. Make sure everything else is unchecked.

    Screen on phone is white (has been for 6 mins) and the computer screen of odin is doing nothing.
    You can pull the plug if its been that long. Btw what was the last things it was saying in the odin window? Pull the battery and see if you can get it back into download mode and retry.


    It now claims it is on di18, hopefully it somehow caught up and skipping the other individual updates is safe and OK. THanks again
    It does! Success! What is the baseband and version numbers? I take it the install was quick and it rebooted into DI18 ?

    baseband VERSION# S700.0.5S.DI18
    kernal version # 2.6.29
    hardware version D700.0.5
    Looks like you got it friend. Glad I could help, hope your g/f is a bit happier on the night of official Froyo's release...


    The following was a user I helped out, via PM which we normally never do but this was one of those situations where it needed a lot of attention and the user was openly new at all these methods. I applaud him for attempting this and was happy to help him out and for him being honest that he was nervous and needed the extra guidance.

    The new odin does not include a check box for, "Debug En." While this isn't relevant in DK28, it does specifically ask for this to be checked in DI18 or older. Should people wanting to downgrade use this latest ODIN or look for the older ODIN that include this option?

    Not positive but I think the Debug option is not going to stop it from working.

    I just did this a bit ago and I can confirm that there's no need for the Debug En checkbox. It still works.

    Try doing it without the .pit file.

    I was trying to roll back from DK28 to DI18 so I could upgrade to the new version of Froyo.

    Why not just use Odin to upgrade directly to EB13?

    I've tried running this three times. The first time it froze when it got to the Setup Connection step, the second and third time it went one step further and froze at the Initialization step. I'm going from DG17 to DI18 so I can do the update.zip method of getting EB13.
    Any ideas why it would be freezing at this step?
    *edit - Will also not boot up normally now. Just shows a pic of a computer and a phone. Tried downloading the other Samsung drivers with no luck. Still freezing at the Initialization step. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    *edit 2 - Downloaded Odin v1.7 and still have the same problem. It feels like a communication issue. I am going to reboot the computer and remove the battery from the phone and try again. Also going to download the DG27 files just in case I can get that installed.
    *last edit - Apparently a reboot, Odin v 1.7, and using a different USB port was all I needed. It is past the Initialization step and is flashing now. As long as it doesn't have any failures I should be ok.

    Default USB Not Recognized, Cannot Odin back to 2.1

    I have tried 3 different computers, installed and uninstalled the drivers, but the phone is not recognized when plugging it in.

    I'm running DK28. I would like to Odin back to 2.1 and eventually upgrade to EB13, but get no "COM" feedback.

    If the USB port is bad, I'm hoping that the phone running DK28 will not void my warranty.

    Can anyone provide any helpful tips? Thanks in advance!

    I've tried Odin versions 1,1.3,1.6, & 1.7. No luck. I've tried with/without the .pit...no luck. I tried the new tar from the Samsung executable...no luck.

    The only thing I can come up with for a reason it's not working is I'm trying to flash the phone with an old laptop using the USB 1.1 standard. Before I play dumb with Sprint can anyone verify that to be a likely cause for the flash to fail?

    I do have a machine that has Vista and USB 2.0, but for some reason it will not recognize the phone after using both drivers? I just want to make sure I've tried everything before I risk taking the phone into Sprint.

    I had this problem earlier when I started up my old desktop running on an old Pentium III Windows XP. I had my drivers installed but had to 1st time around go into system/manage devices/ and force the USB ports to recognize the phone the first time around. Since then its been okay. I've Odin a few times for testing the new EB13 and rooted ...

    Play around, you will get it... Switch ports, try a different cable. I have even heard of people using a powered USB hub and then it works.. Odin is fussy, bottom line.

    Thanks for the advice. I have a few more things to try before I throw in the towel. Although playing around with this is somewhat entertaining I'm without a phone. I feel naked.

    so all i get after 10 minutes is black screen. Phone shows of it attached to pc after I pull battery and reinserted.

    I can verify it does work. Even using the new Froyo EB13 ".tar" file found in the Windows Installer download. I've probably Odin'ed my device half a dozen times now since yesterday.

    Keep trying everyone, don't forget if Odin doesn't work there a few other options to try in the first post for Restoring to stock Eclair 2.1 (DI18)

    I'm having the same problem. I'm running the leaked froyo firmware and trying to get back to stock, and then try the update.zip method. I'm stuck at File Analysis. Is Odin recognizing my phone?

    Now on 3 different pcs, with 2 different cables, XP and Win 7, Windows will not recognize my phone after installing Samsung driver from PG 1 of this thread.

    Try uninstalling that driver and try this one if you haven't already.

    Troubleshooting
    If you're having problems getting Odin to recognize your phone, try uninstalling the Samsung drivers you downloaded from the link above, and download and install (select "Software" at the bottom; it should say "Device(Install),USB Driver (Software) (ver.1.0)") instead.

    Default I think I may have bricked my phone

    I was trying to revert my epic to 2.1 from the leaked 2.2 in order to update to eb13. I was using odin to do so. I followed all of the steps and after a few minutes of not doing anything I unplugged my phone and when i tried to boot it it displayed a cellphone a warning symbol and a computer.
    Now i've tried almost all of the odin methods and I was wondering if anyone had any additional tips.

    I gave up! I don't have a spare smart phone lying around to use while I search for answers elsewhere so I just took it to Sprint.

    Turns out they couldn't flash it either after trying for 90 minutes. They charged me $35 for a replacement since I don't pay for insurance. Coming from the Pre, where I did a lot of modding to my phone, I think the tools used to access your phone are just better. I tried both Heindall and Odin on Windows and Ubuntu Linix...no dice.

    I did just upgrade to 2.2 manually. Version DK28 had AVRCP issues (didn't work) and other problems.

    Default Can't update, drivers not working.. etc

    I am so frustrated right now. My phone is currently running a non rooted DK 28. I tried to follow the steps to restore a bricked phone or to send it back to eclair. My computer will not install the drivers correctly so I can't beyond step one. Is there a way to upgrade directly from DK28 to EB13 without rooting my phone? Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Both my epic and my laptop are about two seconds from flying through the window.
