I am trying to revert my Replenish back to "stock" to get the gingerbread update. However, I keep getting stuck in ODIN. I have the correct OPS and PDA files selected, but after I click "Start" and see "START" in the top left box, nothing else happens. Here is the output in the message box:
Can anyone lend a hand? It's just been sitting like this for over an hour with my phone at the "Downloading" screen. (I tried different PCs USB cables and ports. I also tried a couple different drivers. If someone had a link to the USB drivers they used, I'd gladly look at that. Additionally, I tried ODIN 4.42 and 4.43 on both 64bit Windows 7 and 32-bit Windows XP.)
Weird thing is that I can re-flash LeafROM w root from the original instructions just fine.
Guys, this is SOOO frustrating. I think I'm reasonably adept and reading carefully, but I'm thinking that there's something you may have overlooked - hopefully, something where your genius (SINCERELY) will yield a quick and successful "fix."
I'm trying to root a Samsung Replenish on Sprint. I wouldn't think the carrier matters, but something must matter!
I've tried the several things floating around on the web - KMS, Leaf Rom, Prevail-something.bat, etc.
In pretty much every case, I'm getting on my desktop messages with words like CANNOT in them, so the rooting obviously fails.
I think I heard that early in 2012 (sic), Samsung "upgraded" its firmware - could that be the issue?
Everybody says, "wait for the logo," but Samsung seems to say "Hi" with a white on black "Samsung" and then with something swirly. In both cases, the batch files come with warnings and messages that make split-second timing pretty difficult, even if I knew what to try for.
I'm 100% FOR your "have it your way" philosophy, and I recognize that there are lots of handsets, and you very reasonably "care more" about more popular ones. It's removing the bloat - changing "Browser" to Opera without getting a zillion messages of a "Which Browser" variety - that is my goal. Maybe, if rooting requires luck and skill beyond me, someone knows how to deal with the worst aspects of "factory defaults" without rooting.
There is no method to rooting an up to date Replenish, especially with Shabby's outdated rom. We moved on a "cheated" by flashing and pre-rooting. Look at PhoeniX ROM, based off LeafRom. Even Shabbypenguin helped me gather things together to get it started.
