    Ok so I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, rebooting, etc and still cannot get odin to see my phone. I went into download mode, plugged my phone in and nothing seems to ever happen. Is there any other reason this would be happening? or a way around this?

    Have you tried restarting your computer? Also try different usb ports and cables.

    Sorry I meant to write restarting, not rebooting. Yes I tried that and tried all of the usb ports. I'll have to find another cable and try that.

    disconnect phone
    Remove drivers
    Reboot
    Reinstall drivers from thread
    After the driver software loads.....
    Restart phone (Do not have phone in download mode.)
    Plug phone into the computer.
    Windows should now recognize the phone and finish loading the drivers.
    safely remove the hardware.
    Open Odin
    setup odin in accordance with the instructions
    put phone into download mode by pressing volume DOWN, power and home simultaneously until you see a warning then release and press volume up.
    Odin should recognize your phone

    It seems like the laptop I was using kept having issues with the drivers. I used a friend's computer today with no issues. Thanks again

    I just tried the first download link from my phone and it worked for me. Maybe they were just down temporarily.

    I just downloaded every file in this thread. ALL of them worked.... Perhaps you need to adjust your anti virus settings.

    Thank you for the easy guide to follow. I'm rooting my wife's phone now. Will this delete her set up and apps. Or will everything be untouched. I told her to not set up everything up last night in case it would reset. She was to excited to wait. I don't blame her though. Lol

    Hi,

    I rooted my phone about two months ago using this method. Now my phone is complaining to install an update, which doesn't work, the bootloader thingy complains about it being digitally signed or something like that. What is the easiest way to get this (I believe it's the 4.1) update onto my phone?

    Thanks so much!

    After updating are you going to want to root again?

    Also needed to know if you removed or froze any of the Sprint or Samsung pre-installed software?

    I didn't remove anything, just installed a couple things.

    Thanks!

    This will update you to jellybean and keep you rooted.
    Download these
    and place it on either your internal or external sdcard.
    "" and place it on either your internal or external sdcard.

    Shut down the phone. Press and hold volume UP, power and home buttons simultaneously. Release all 3 buttoms as soon as you see the word Samsung on the screen. Your phone will go into recovery after a small wait. Then follow the directions below in the order shown.First flash the Firmware using the dirrections below, then flash the the update_Full_Odex using the same dirrection.

    1. From the home menu, select "wipe cache partition" and confirm by selecting yes.
    2. Select advanced menu.
    3. Select wipe dalvik cache and then confirm by selecting yes.
    4. Return to the home menu
    5. Select "install zip from sdcard"
    6. Select "choose zip from sd card" or "choose zip from external sdcard".
    7. Select the file "Galaxy-S-fre3-LJ7FirmwareModemAIO" and select yes to confirm. (if you don't see it, swipe the screen to scroll up and down)
    8. Return and do the same for "LJ7_update_FULL_Odex.zip"
    9. After it completes, go back to the home menu and select "reboot system now".

    Seems to have worked fine, thanks so much! I appreciate the help - and for free!

    Hoping they don't update again anytime soon...

    I was thinking about not updating because I read there seems to be battery life issues, but I doubt it could get much worse... it doesn't even last my commute in both directions, I need to charge in the middle of the day.
