Not As Easy As Advertised - Heimdall Step Not Working
Posted 15 April 2013 - 02:35 AM
Laptop: Ubuntu Linux 12.04 64 bit
Phone: Galaxy SII TMO
Downloaded recovery image: recovery-clockwork-188.8.131.52-hercules.img
Downloaded the ROM and copied it to an empty SD card. (Never got to using it though)
Downloaded heimdall: heimdall_v1.4rc1_x64.tar
This tar extracted to a binary file "heimdall" - no extension. The file's permissions were set to exectuable. But nothing executed. Not via double clicking, not via terminal. "Command not found" was all I got. So here I am - the first step of the instructions already not working. Great.
This "heimdall" file was not accepted by the ubuntu software center either.
So I found deb files of the heimdall 1.4 suite. Installed, booted the phone into download mode and ran the command in the instructions. Said success. I did not get any blue bar on the phone though as promised in the instructions.
Next reboot of the phone has me stuck in "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again."
Can't get into download mode. Can't get around it.
Rather disappointed that I tried this. Seems like my phone is bricked.

And with it showing that error, you are still in download mode. I would try again with the heimdall linked to in the wiki. If you can't get it to work, provide me with the printout of the following commands ls -la and echo $PATH along with the output of the heimdall command.
