Flashing Heimdall Firmware Package with Heimdall Frontend:

As of Heimdall Frontend 1.3 there are now two main ways to flash a ROM from
Heimdall Frontend. The simpler and preferred option is to download a
Heimdall Firmware Package and follow the following steps.

1. Fully charge your device (use the wall charger as it's faster).
2. Open the Heimdall Frontend (heimdall-frontend) executable.
3. From the "Load Package" tab, under the "Heimdall Firmware Package"
section click the "Browse" button.
4. Use the dialogue that appears to navigate to, and select, the Heimdall
firmware package that you wish to flash.
5. You will see progress bars appear as the package is decompressed and
extracted.
When the package has finished being decompressed you should see
information about the particular firmware package that has been
selected.

6. Verify that your device is listed under "Supported Devices". If it's not
then STOP immediately! DO NOT flash this firmware to your device!
Instead search for an appropriate firmware package for your device.

If you believe there is a mistake and your device is actually
supported please get in contact with the firmware developer (not Glass
Echidna!) and ask them to rectify the issue. If the developer provided
a URL you may be able to contact them by pressing the "Homepage" button.

7. If you've verified your device is supported you may continue to press
the "Load / Customise" button.
8. You should now be looking at the "Flash" tab. If not verify that you did
in fact push the "Load / Customise" button.

Generally, you won't NEED or WANT to customise a firmware package! In
which case you can safely move on to step 9.

Nonetheless, the "Flash" tab provides you with a means to customise the
firmware package before flashing it to your device. See "Performing a
Custom Flash with Heimdall Frontend" for more details.

9. Put your Galaxy S device into download mode and plug it in to your PC.
Download mode can be accessed several different ways depending on your
particular device model. If you're unsure how to do this please search
online for the appropriate method.
10. Press the "Start" button.
11. Heimdall Frontend will display the progress and inform you when the
flash is complete.

If something went wrong i.e. your device wasn't detected because it
wasn't in download mode, then the status section will let you know the
cause of the problem.

Performing a Custom Flash with Heimdall Frontend:

This is the advanced means of flashing firmware to your device.

If you're not an advanced user or a developer, in the event that a Heimdall
Firmware Package doesn't exist for the particular firmware (or files) that
you wish to flash, then I strongly recommend you get in touch with developer
of the firmware (or files) and politely ask them to create a Heimdall
Firmware Package for you. In doing so then you don't have to worry about
making mistakes due to inexperience.

If you're looking to customise an existing Heimdall Firmware Package then
follow steps 1-8 of "Flashing Heimdall Firmware Package with Heimdall
Frontend" then start from below with step 5.

1. Fully charge your device (use the wall charger as it's faster).
2. Download a decrypted device ROM or a Heimdall Firmware Package
and extract everything to the one directory.
3. If the ROM is not a Heimdall Firmware Package it may instead be provided
as multiple archives (nested or otherwise), extract them all to the same
location.

NOTE: If you want to use the CSC then extract it last.

3. Open the Heimdall Frontend (heimdall-frontend) executable.
4. Select the "Flash" tab. From the "Flash" tab you're able to completely
customise a flash.
5. Before you can chose which partitions you want to flash with particular
files you MUST first select a PIT file. To do this click the "Browse"
button in the "PIT" section. This will open a dialogue allowing you to
navigate to and select a valid PIT (.pit) file.

If you do not already have a valid PIT file stored on your computer you
can download your device's PIT file from the "Utilities" tab.

6. If a valid PIT file has been selected then "Add" button below the
"Partitions (Files)" list-box will become enabled. Press this button to
add a partition to your flash.
7. When you first add a partition you will see the "Partition Name" and
"Partition ID" be populated with information. Use the "Partition Name"
drop down to select which partition you wish to flash. "Partition ID"
will automatically update and is never directly editable.
8. You must then select a file to flash to the partition that you just
specified using the "Browse" button under the "File / Partition". You
will not be able to flash, create a firmware package or add another
partition until you have selected a file. However, you're still able to
press the "Remove" button if you've decided not to flash the partition
you've just specified.
9. When you've specified a file name then you'll be able to see the updated
information in the partition list to the right. You can select any
partition from this list and customise it as you see fit.

You can also remove a partition from the list by selecting it and
clicking the "Remove" button. Removing a partition from the list doesn't
remove it from your device, it simply means it will not be flashed.

10. Repeat steps 7-9 as often as needed to specify all the partions/files
that you wish to flash.

11. Now you can chose whether you would like to repartition your device as
well as whether you would like to prevent the device rebooting once a
flash has been completed. These options can be enabled or disabled by
toggling the "Repartition" and "No Reboot" check-boxes.

In the general case you will only need to enable repartition if you wish
to change the PIT file on your device. Keep in mind that repartitioning
will wipe your device!

The "No Reboot" option is rarely required. It's mostly in place so you
can manually boot straight into recovery mode after a flash (rather than
booting up normally).

12. If you've added at least one partition to your flash (and selected a
file for that partition) then the "Start" button will be enabled. Press
the "Start" button to begin the flashing process.

You may notice that the "Create Package" tab becomes available at the
whenever the "Start" button becomes available. From this tab you're able
to create a reusable, redistributable Heimdall Firmware Package with the
files and partitions you just selected. See "How to Create a Heimdall
Firmware Package" for details.

13. Heimdall Frontend will display the progress and inform you when the
flash is complete.

If something went wrong i.e. your device wasn't detected because it
wasn't in download mode, then the status section will let you know the
cause of the problem.

Flashing Firmware from Command Line:

1. Fully charge your phone (use the wall charger as it's faster).
2. Download a decrypted device ROM or a Heimdall Firmware Package
and extract everything to the one directory.
3. If the ROM is not a Heimdall Firmware Package it may instead be provided
as multiple archives (nested or otherwise), extract them all to the same
location.
NOTE: If you want to use the CSC then extract it last. If you're asked
to overwrite files then do so.
4. Put your Galaxy S device into download mode and plug it in..
5. Open command prompt and navigate to the directory where you installed
heimdall.
NOTE: Adding Heimdall to your PATH variable will allow you to run
Heimdall from any directory.
6. Type the following to list all the functionality Heimdall supports:
heimdall help
7. Before flashing, you must first know the names of the partitions you
wish to flash. These can be obtained by executing:

heimdall print-pit --no-reboot

The inclusion of --no-reboot ensures the phone will not reboot after PIT
file has been downloaded and displayed. After executing a command with
the --no-reboot argument, the next command should include the --resume
argument.

NOTE: You can still safely reboot your phone manually (with the power
button) after executing --no-reboot commands.

8. Use the help and print-pit output to construct a command with all the
file you want to flash.

Here is an example that does a full flash and repartition on a GT-I9000:

heimdall flash --repartition --resume --pit s1_odin_20100512.pit
--FACTORYFS factoryfs.rfs --CACHE cache.rfs --DBDATA dbdata.rfs
--IBL+PBL boot.bin --SBL Sbl.bin --PARAM param.lfs
--KERNEL zImage --MODEM modem.bin

NOTE: The above command assumes the files specified are installed in the
same directory as Heimdall.

9. Heimdall will display the progress as it flashes so that you know things
are working as they should.
