    This will save your data, you may possibly loose your texts, that I'm not positive about. But applications you have downloaded and their data should remain in tact if you use the NO WIPE method provided here. This will install EC05 Froyo, root and install CWM 2.5.1.0 all in one package.
    If I decide to do a full wipe without rooting my phone what's the best way to copy EVERYTHING from my non-rooted stock 2.1 phone over to froyo after I update?

    TIA!
    You would have to root your phone as is right now and then use Titanium Backup or MyBackup Root to backup your data. Then once you choose how your going to update to Froyo EC05, you would need root again to install Titanium or MyBackUP (whichever you used) to restore your DATA ONLY after downloading your apps manually.

    Now I'm really, really confused. Few questions...

    1) Does the "no data loss" Odin method require the phone to be rooted already? If so, what is easiest way to root?

    2) When complete, will the "no data loss" method leave me with a rooted phone or will the phone be the same as if I got an OTA update?

    3) What is CWM?

    4) If I use Titanium Backup or MyBackup Root why do I have to manually download my apps? I thought these apps backed up your apps and data. And can someone confirm if either one of these apps will back up my SMS?

    In a nutshell what I want at the end of the day is an non-rooted phone with froyo and all my data. How do I get from a non-rooted DI18 to non-rooted EC05 with data intact?

    I probably sound like I'm technically hopeless which couldn't be farther from the truth. But I am not savvy when it comes to Android modifications, this isn't my domain. If someone can walk me through the process without 1000 acornyms I'd really appreciate it.

    I'm sure it's just a few steps but all the threads seem geared for people who have their phones rooted and jacked up with ROMs. I just want plain vanilla froyo with my data transfered over. If I have to root my phone in the process that's fine but in the end I'd like my phone to be stock froyo. HELP!

    Many thanks in advance.

    I'm having the exact same issue as bjs188. Can someone PLEASE help us out? the only difference I'm having from him is that odin never gets past zimage... it then sits there for maybe three minutes, and then the phone promptly shuts off. Odin still reads no issues and i've left it sitting there for another ten minutes with no luck. when i unplug the phone, odin finally gives me a "FAIL!" message. When i try to boot the phone or get into recovery, the phone shows the little "phone/!/pc" icon that bjs188 described. I have tried multiple times, and yes, I HAVE tried without the battery. the only difference w/o the battery is a get a fail w/o the phone turning off or being unplugged. does anyone have a link to the swupdate package w/ eb13 so i can try bringing my phone back to life? or better yet, the DI18 package for odin so i can just just the EC05.zip in recovery?

    1. Using odin(samsung program) does not require root.

    2. By using odin to apply the .tar file in the 1st post you will have a stock rooted phone.

    3. CWM= Clockwork recovery mod

    4. If you use one of those apps you can back up your apps with the data associated with those apps, myback up root always you to also back up sms/mms(I don't know about titanium). Although you should only restore select data from those apps because they are likely to force close since you are coming from 2.1

    and: How do I get from a non-rooted DI18 to non-rooted EC05 with data intact?
    For this just wait for the OTA to hit your phone.

    This will restore you back to either stock EB13 or DI18 just follow the appropriate directions: http://forum.androidcentral.com/epic...ked-phone.html

    After you get back to stock DI18 you can follow the directions here to get to stock unrooted version of the EC05:http://forum.androidcentral.com/spri...-packages.html

    I am using the first method and everything looked to be working well. But it has been sitting at this step (<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..) for over 10 minutes and I am getting a little concerned that something isn't working properly. Any ideas?


    Thanks

    Thumbs up Thanks!

    Well that makes two flawless firmware updates provided by this site. I did the original update.zip but was stuck with 2.2.1 eb13. Now after using the methods described here I am now on 2.2.1 EC05. No data loss. (I did backup just in case)

    Thanks again for this wonderfull step by step program all of you took the time to make.

    No, this method will install Froyo EC05 and also root your phone in the process.
    2) When complete, will the "no data loss" method leave me with a rooted phone or will the phone be the same as if I got an OTA update?
    Yes it will be rooted. Yes it would be the same as the official OTA, except your also rooted

    3) What is CWM?
    ClockWorkMod

    4) If I use Titanium Backup or MyBackup Root why do I have to manually download my apps? I thought these apps backed up your apps and data. And can someone confirm if either one of these apps will back up my SMS?
    Yes they do allow you to backup your apps along with data but we have seen conflicts arise in the past when users try and restore apps and data from different OS versions. We always recommend redownloading your apps manually then you can restore DATA only to those apps.

    In a nutshell what I want at the end of the day is an non-rooted phone with froyo and all my data. How do I get from a non-rooted DI18 to non-rooted EC05 with data intact?
    Wait for the OTA update or use the update.zip method Sprint Samsung Epic 4g Official Froyo EC05 [update.zip method/Custom Odin Packages]

    Another question- now when I use adb shell the system is mounted read only- is this "stock"- previously using my rooted DI18 the system was mounted read write
    Any insight on this one? thanks- BTW it looks like busybox is installed in xbin- do I have this right?

    EDIT- looks like a mount script is included- I just used remount rw and voila

    Just did this -thanks PAul and all- and got the green PASS. Phone rebooted, but Epic is stuck on Samsung screen for about 15 minutes now (still connected via USB)..

    Wait longer, or re-do, or something else?

    thanks

    UPDATE... Well, I disconnected the USB cable from the Epic after 30 minutes and the Samsung logo was still hanging after disconnect. Removed the battery, powered ON, and crossed my fingers... happy to report that everything seems to be working fine. Loving the Froyo. This method is so easy, thanks again.

    Tried flashing the zip for in CWM for the HTC Style battery indicator mod and the phone just freezes (or at least is all black) when turning on. I had to re-odin it. using the EpicOdexHTCStyle.zip from xda-development. It worked on EB13, but not this one.

    Yes could be something there that does differs from EB13 and EC05.

    Welcome to Android Central Boy, most problems happen because of connection... you are going to have to pull the cable, close odin and start again.

    but check the following,,
    • any antivirus program is disabled
    • use USB ports in the back of the computer, if you already are try a different one
    • remove your battery and put the phone in download mode.Flash with the battery out

    Ok, I did the full-wipe method because I had a custom ROM (Epic Experience 2.0.05) installed. Everything went great with the update.

    However, now I cannot do certain things while attached to wifi (ie. use WeatherBug, activate ThinkFree Office, install apps, etc). All of that works when I turn off wifi.

    With my custom ROM, this was not happening. Why is this happening now? How do I fix it?

    Thanks. Worked great for those of us who upgraded to the last official release that was pulled. Did the no data wipe option.
