    Update to Froyo OR Fix a Bricked Samsung Epic (ODIN)

    ODIN.... become familiar with this if you tend to do changes to your phone which might brick it. Here's the way to revive your phone from the dead.

    This thread is from Paul627g (Android Central)

    --Start--

    First I would like to thank Android Central Adviser
    DroidXcon


    for making this happen. I was waiting on the official "update.zip" file so we could produce this for you. Once I obtained the update I was able to get the files DroidXcon needed to make the Odin ".tar" file. Thanks again DroidXcon.

    I ran this package personally 3 times to verify its working

    Froyo EC05 Prerooted/ClockWorkMod v2.5.1.0 (RFS Filesystem) Odexed. FULL WIPE VERSION
    &

    Froyo EC05 Prerooted/ClockWorkMod v2.5.1.0 (RFS Filesystem) Odexed. NO DATA WIPE/LOSS !!


    NO DATA LOSS VERSION:

    Thats right, you can flash this with Odin and you will not loose your data on your device! So if your already on Froyo EB13/DK28 or Eclair 2.1 you can use this file with Odin and retain your Data.

    1) Download
    Odin


    |
    mirror


    Note ** The mirror package comes with ".pit" file, this is NOT NEEDED FOR THIS PROCEDURE..
    2) Download and Install Windows Drivers
    32bit


    |
    64 bit



    3) Download the
    EC05x_DXC.tar.rar



    4) Extract the "EC05x DXC.tar.rar" file to a folder on your hard drive to get the neccessary "EC05x_DXC.tar.md5" file located inside.
    5) Shut down your device
    6) Boot into download mode (Hold number 1 on physical keyboard and press power)
    7) Start Odin
    8) Plug in device via USB cable to computer, (if it's done right you should see a yellow Com device light up in one of the rectangular boxes)
    9) Place the "EC05x_DXC.tar.md5" in the PDA slot on Odin
    10) Check Auto Reboot ONLY
    12) Click start and this should only take about 2-3 minutes to complete.
    13) Wait for the green light in the Com device/rectangular box and the "Pass" to show.

    When completed it should reboot into Froyo EC05 and you will have your previous Data still intact.

    NOTE: For those interested in converting from this to EXT4/CWM 3.0.0.6 please see the following thread. Go to Procedure #2 and start at Step #2

    When completed it should reboot into Froyo EC05, with a fresh system.


    *** Trouble Shoot for all Odin Packages... Read below... ***

    If for some reason Odin does ever give you a FAIL or the process hangs up for more than 5 minutes in one spot then do the following.

    - Pull your battery out of your device and leave it out.

    - Plug in your device via USB cable and connect it to your computer.

    - Then boot into Download Mode (hold 1 on physical keyboard and press power).

    - Run the Odin package.

    - When completed and you get the Green PASS, you can pop your battery back in and then reboot the phone and you should be good to go.

    Note: Some devices have given some trouble and you have to attempt this twice to get it to work. Also make sure all anti virus software is off/disabled. One last option is remove your sdcard if everything else fails.

    Other optional troubleshooting:

    - Odin flash didn't work, getting boot loops? Try booting into CWM and wipe cache and dalvik only 3x. If that doesn't resolve it then run the Odin package again.

    - Remove your sdcard

    - Disable any anti virus and run Odin again

    - Try a different USB cable or USB port

    - Drivers above didn't work?? install
    this driver


    (select "Software" at the bottom; it should say "Device(Install),USB Driver (Software) (ver.1.0)") instead.

    --End--
