  1. Works just fine for me, although it did install Gingerbread in Polish, which was a challenge!!

    ODIN finished with a Blue "PASS" message, not green - apart from that, my experience was identical to the steps above.

    Thanks for helping me remove the T-Mob firmware :)

  5. Hey! The program doesn't see when I connect the phone to the PC. The computer makes a 'ding' sound that it knows something was connected to its USB, but no new hard drive appears in my computer.

    Do you know what's happening?

  6. Do you have Kies installed on your PC? I guess the driver is not in there. Once the driver already installed, RUN ODin tool first, then set the device in download mode, then connect it to the PC.

  7. This worked perfectly fine. But my memory card was not detected. When I set it to the factory defaults all my data was gone and the card was still invisible. and ofcourse i needed to download all the apps.
    All I can say is that this procedure is not full proof.
    Still thanks for the Gingerbread, my hunger got satisfied ;-)
