    Consider trying the Heimdall one-click 2.3.6 here:
    [AT&T] [ROM] [UCLB3] Heimdall One-Click Return to Stock + Easy CWM Installation - xda-developers

    Read instructions carefully. If you're brand new to this, I would seriously might plan on at least 8 hours reading and another 8 hours trying to get it to work. I'm not trying to scare you, but you have to be in the frame of mind that it's not going to be quick so you'll slow down and focus on the details.. The first time I had to do it, it took me about 12 hours to get it to work. I also had to ask questions on xda. Having trouble figuring out the procedure the first time is normal. It will work, but probably not the first time. May have to try several usb ports, several cords (data cords, not power only cords), even several computers. May have to try uninstall and reinstall the drivers from your computer. As long as you don't check "flash bootloaders", you won't do any unrecoverable damage.
