Repair your bricked Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100G

the exclamation of death !

So have you excitedly tried flashing your new Samsung Galaxy S2 you brought yesterday ? why yes !
did you almost brick it ? why yes !

Yay! This morning figured out what was missing in updating my I9100G. 

The secret to the sauce: The correct PIT file should have been included, and "re-partition" option is ticked and the correct PIT file for I9100G is as attached.

  7. Hey man, i don't even know what to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
    You just saved my phone.

    It was bricked for 2 days, i wasted my time with the other junk (oneclick unbrick, etc..) and was useless, while i just needed ODIN, 5 minutes a few files. :D

    Amazing, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    I was stuck on the exclamation screen with the comp and phone (same as the pic above this post), and when i saw that blue bar starting to fill up after launching ODIN, i almost exploded in tears of joy.

    Again, THANKS A BUNCH, THANK YOU.
