    Oh, you're using a Mac - hmm, well that's a problem. Both procedures require programs or scripts that run in Windows only. You'll need to get access to Windows. I have a Mac also, and I have Windows 7 installed alongside OSX that I use for all my Android hackery. You may need to postpone this until tomorrow, unless you can get to Windows now.

    I've never used VMWare - did you/can you install the Samsung drivers and use them on Windows with that program?

    I've heard of people having problems when using virtualization software to run Windows - hopefully you can get this to work. If not, it would make your life a lot easier to get an old Windows XP disk and install it using Bootcamp. You'll have full-fledged Windows then.

    I assume you're using the runtryfirst.bat/runtrylast.bat method?

    back to square one, error occurred while downloading your recovery

    So what happened when you did this step?

    and RUN the BATCH file (run.bat)

    It will then flash the kernel. This may take a couple minutes, so don't get frustrated. If it doesn't take after about 5 minutes, then reboot the phone and try this step again. After it flashes, the phone WILL reboot automatically.

    And you installed the Samsung drivers?
    12-05-2010 04:12 AM
  20. hotis300boy's Avatar
    no cause that method doesn't ask or require that, the samsung drivers are required in the other method which I also tried and the .bat files are nowhere to be found in that samsung folder so I am up a creek here with both methods not doing a thing for me. The run.bat method keeps saying error device not fount it never installs nothing phone never restarts, the other method I cant find the .bat files in the samsung folder

    my biggest common issue here windows or not is my phone NEVER shows up under my computer EVER at all so Im pretty damn sure this has something to do with why nothing is getting installed on it cause it cant read the phone
    12-05-2010 04:17 AM
  22. hotis300boy's Avatar
    I guess you cant even help me figure this one out huh? My phone just wont show up under my computer at all or on my mac it just does NOT mount at all.

    The Samsung drivers are what makes the computer see your phone - install them and then try again. I've got to get up in the morning, so I've got to call it a night. Good luck, and if you're still stuck I'll check this thread tomorrow and reply!
