Updated at: 24-01-2012

Difficulty Rating: Moderate / Hard

Chapters:
1. Introduction
2. Software Requirements
3. Getting in Download mode
4. Using Odin

CHAPTER 1. Introduction
The reason that I wrote this tutorial is because my phone got bricked.
I used Samsung Kies software to update the firmware but it got stuck and I had to disconnect my phone from the PC.
So it got corrupted.. And the horrible "Black Screen of Death" showed.

This screen usually means that your phone is bricked or unable to boot.
The worst thing about this BSOD is that you are unable to get in recovery mode, which makes things allot harder.
You can read this tutorial if your phone is bricked, but also if you want to flash a new rom to your Samsung Galaxy S Plus.
The only difference is that when you got a bricked phone its way trickier to get in Download mode.

CHAPTER 2. Software Requirements


To successfully flash your phone you need the following things:

Samsung Galaxy S Plus ROMS

Download I9001XXKQE ROM (Recommended)

broodplank.net - How to Flash (or Unbrick) Samsung Galaxy S Plus (i9001) Using Odin
Odin Multi Downloader 4.43
Download Odin Multi Downloader 4.43
Odin Multi Downloader is needed to download the ROM to your phone.
This application can download files to your phone even if your phone doesn't boot properly.

OPS File
Download AriesVE.ops
This 1kb file is very important, it tells Odin in what order to flash the phone.
Without this file you can't do anything.

CHAPTER 3. Getting in Download Mode


If your Samsung Galaxy S Plus is (partially) bricked and you have BSOD:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Unplug your phone if its connected to your PC


Hold Vol UP + Vol Down + Power, the screen will flash black
Continue holding down all 3 buttons, you will see the BSOD screen again, continue holding all 3 buttons, the screen will flash black again
Release the power button only. This will put you into Download Mode

Don't expect it to work the first time you try it. If it keeps failing try the alternative:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Start Odin Multi Downloader


Connect your phone (which is in BSOD) to the PC
Wait till Windows finished installing drivers and Odin recognized your phone
Hold Vol Down + Home + Power, once the black screen flashes, release the Power button. This will put you into Download Mode

If you just want to flash a new ROM to your Samsung Galaxy S Plus:
1. Turn off your phone
2. Hold Vol Down + Home + Power, This will put you in Download Mode

CHAPTER 4. Using Odin


1. Start Odin Multi Downloader 4.43
2. Click the "OPS" button and choose the AriesVE.ops file

3. Check the "One Package" box and click on the "One Package" button > Choose the ROM

4. As you see, it will automatically check if the MD5 Checksum is correct.


5. Connect your phone (which is in Download Mode) to your PC, Odin will automatically recognize the phone. If it doesn't, download Samsung Android USB Drivers

6. The last step is clicking the "Start" button. I'm not showing this in my tutorial because I do not want to reinstall my phone at the moment.
The process will take from 8 to 60 minutes tops. (this varies allot, I have an average of 10 minutes) If it's done, your phone is successfully reinstalled with a new ROM!
7. Now you will have to configure your whole phone just like you did when you first got it. Enjoy your unbricked phone / new ROM

Don't forget to ROOT your Samsung Galaxy S Plus!

hi Mr broodplank! Eventueel overweeg ik wel om je rom te downloaden maar ik zie verschillende versies ,extra files enz...wat is de gemakkelijkste methode om je beste
rom (waarschijnlijk RC2?)te flashen, moet ik dan ook die extra file downloaden en via sd-card unzippen in recovery mode?? Groetjes uit het verre noord-oosten van
Engeland

beste broodplank, ik heb de stappen 1 voor 1 gevolgd alleen blijf ik hangen bij de volgende melding in odin "system.img.ext4 file downloading" ik heb hem een hele nacht
aan laten staan maar vanochtend nog niks. en de teller stond op 300 nog wat. vervolgens batterij eruit gehaald en opnieuw in de download stand gezet en wederom de
stappen genomen maar hij bleef weer op die melding hangen. en tja toen moest ik werken ;)

Als je eerst RC4 had kun je ook dit doen: 1.Installeer "updateFMR_cfs_1.3.1.zip opnieuw. 2. then install "signed_Cranium_i9001_2.3.6 opnieuw 3. then install the
"Cranium_i9001_rc4_fixed_framework.zip opnieuw en je hebt rc4 weer! By Kevin

Beste Broodplank, allereerst respect voor de genvesteerde arbeid! na het flashen van de originele roms die je gelinked hebt boven aan deze post, heb ik telkens geen
3G/HSDPA verbinding. Wifi werkt prima maar via de provider niet (terwijl alles aanstaat in de settings) Als ik jouw RC5 rom gebruik werkt het wel... die is echter bij mij op
andere vlakken niet bepaald stabiel. Heb jij misschien een idee?? bvd

Please help! I did your step by step instruction, Odin says PASS and turns blue but after boot it is as nothing happened phone is stuck at searching for media then black
screen. I have Feamod Recovery 1.4 but I cannot do a factory reset. I tried to flash different ROMS, another version of recovery on several computers using several USB
ports but nothing. Any idea?
