In another video tutorial, I taught them how to install and how to use Heimdall for flash terminals of the family Galaxy of Samsung.
As I told you in the other article, Heimdall is a valid tool for all operating systems, it is of character Open Source o open source and is the only alternative to Odin.
In the following video tutorial, I will teach you how to unzip an original firmware, And create a package autoflasheable by Heimdall.
The tutorial in question and the files that I will attach, will serve all terminal users Samsung Galaxy S; the file firmware.xml which is the file you have modified, they will serve all users whatever their device model, the only one that will have to be downloaded on their own from the official website of sammobile.com, Will be the firmware to be packaged and the corresponding file pit.
necessary files (Samsung Galaxy S)
We will need it the original firmware we want to package to make it autoflasheable for Heimdall, the PIT file corresponding to our terminal model, i the firmware.xml file which we will modify as I explain in header video.
Remember that the files attached in this post are for Samsung Galaxy S, The only file that is valid for any terminal model is firmware.xml after the relevant modifications.
To proceed with the packaging of the autoflasheable firmware, We will have to unzip the firmware files and copy them all to a new folder, then modify the file firmware.xml and package or compress in format tar.gz.
In the video tutorial of the header you will find the step-by-step process explained by a server.
The video-tutorial is developed since Ubuntu 12.04But keep in mind that the process to follow is the same for anyone operating system.
