  1. Hi… The ODIN is stuck on factoryfs.img. I searched on XDA and they are saying this may mean that my phone is dead!! I’m really really worried 🙁
    To give a little history, I initially wanted to try flashing the ROM using CWM. I downloaded the app off the market but was stupid enough to forget to install appropriate software or whatever reqd for CWM to work in the bootloader mode. I went to the recovery mode, deleted data, wiped cache and couldn’t find the zip file for installation in the external SD (downloaded from XDA and put in external SD’s root). I realized that it could be because I’m not in CWM mode so I rebooted the phone, downloaded the CWM app and installed appropriate software for CWM to work. This time when I rebooted I still did not enter the CWM mode it was just the usual Android’s recovery mode. And it was giving me the file error. I searched around and couldn’t find the reason. I for some reason thought its a good idea to delete the file and try again.. still same problem. Then I decided to try the ODIN method. I followed everything exactly as you have described but now I’m stuck at factoryfs.img. I’m really really really scared that I bricked my phone. What should I do? Is it safe to unplug the phone? Please help me. I’ll be really grateful to you… thanks man!

  2. The SGH-i777 is the AT&T SGSII, not the Skyrocket.

  3. So is this for the SGS2 or the skyrocket?

  4. How do I download the file? It keeps refreshing the page.
