    Default bricked 4G with a 3G PIT file using Odin, need PIT file, anyone?

    Hi, i've been searching XDA-developers all morning about this issue, please help. I just realized the problem and also that there isnt much in terms of support. If anything, i am getting another Galaxy 4G for wife on Monday, so i can pull the PIT file, but can someone tell me how to do it, or how to make one? Thanks.

    what? dude a pit file is specific for that phone model. using a different phones pit is bound to be a bad idea.. its your partitions information table.. aka what goes where.. by using another phones partitions map you do have the chance at bricking..

    Yea, too late, but thanks for the warning. I didn't realize it want the right phone. The other one I am getting is the same model,i can hypothetically use that pit if I can get it out, right?

    Read my file below yours - Stock Rom for those that need it.

    I used something wrong trying to unlock - completely bricked phone, still can't root mine for some reason - found this over on xda and used it, back up and running.

    Hope this helps.

    Go to the xda-developers forum for Samsung galaxy s 4g and go into the developer section. You will find the Bible that has the pit file I found and other things. You can actually just use the unroot to stock and it will have all the files.
