I have flashed my i607 with the i600 new ROM and now I can't flash the phone back.
The phone works because I haven't flashed this part, however had flashed the PDA and have no camera anymore, no vibrator, but at least a working O/S.
I have tried the following:

a ) Purchased the D820 cable. I can see the phone connected using Tera Term in COM1, however is not seen by the WCE downloader as this is looking at USB ports.
b ) I have tried installing the modem drivers time and again, and tried to connect ActiveSync in COM1 according to these instructions:

(1) Use a Samsung D820 cable with Serial Port and plug into your i60x
(2) Connect the cable to your PC's serial port (probably COM1)
(3) Install the Samsung Blackjack Modem Driver
(4) Uncheck the "Allow USB connections" in Active Sync option and select COM1 in "Allow connections in one of the followings"
(5) Let Active Sync to search for the i60x and wait for "Connected"
(6) Run the i600 firmware update program as usual.

NO results. ActiveSync does not connect.

c ) Tried Corona Downloader ver 3.2 for Samsung SGH-D500, it connects to the phone, but vendor ID sent is 0x44 and the phone responds 0x52, aborting further exchanges. I also tried OneNAND downloaders ver 1.4, 1.7 and 1.8 with similar results. I know these flashers may not work on my phone, however gave ma an idea some exchange was taking place...

d ) I tried to load the bootloader eboot.nbo in root of the SD card, however i don't know if there should be a key combination to boot from SD card or if there is one other trick nor what name the file should have. Any ideas here?

e ) I have made dumps prior this mishap of all 4 raw partitions in the phone. Is it there a way to write a partition using a utility that I can place in the SD card? Is it there available a SD flasher that may run from the phone?

f ) Is it there a way to modify the WCE downloader to work on COM1 instead of USB?

g ) Is it there a way to modify the device driver to accept the phone as it is now? Apparently the phone device driver messages windows with a device malfunction and Device not recognized. Is it there any way to bypass this?

h ) I even tried to use a Serial-USB bridge and WCE downloader. No results either.

If you have any ideas, please respond to this thread. Any input will be deeply appreciated. Thank-you in advance.

The thrill of finding a solution is worth all the trouble. Hachete, ave you tried UST pro?
Mm, and on a second though, perhaps AT$T may flash it back using JTAG, you may take the phone to an AT$T $ervice Center, at this point what else you may loose?...

I purchased the i607 from $ingular and paid $399.00 out of my pocket back in Jan/07.
They sent me a rebate for $100.00 and owe me another one for $50.00
AT&T still owes me another rebate worth $100.00 on the same phone.
From Jan to July I have paid $ingular/AT&T $1080.00 for service...
Any doubts I can do with this phone whatever I want and get the functionality they took away from me?

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm having similar issues w/ a cooked WM6 ROM. I can't get the PC to recognize the phone via Activesync or w/ the modem drivers.

Thanks,
Mark

Ehh. I've got the same problem. but the difference is, that the one who killed the phone wasn't me, it was an earlier owner of the device. to solve the problem I bought an i600(realy!) so maybe it's active sync cd and its sw will be good for my bj, but it wasn't. The pc couldn't find my phone, not as an i607 and not as an i600.. so I couldn't reflash it to i607. :( if is there anyone who could help me with this, please e-mail me to: [email protected] (I didn't miswrote it, this is my mail adress).
I've sent an e-mail to samsung, but they wrote, that: "It always causes problems if you take a phone from a country to another one wich uses diferent bandwiths."
?????? I don't understand... i wrote, that it has been flashed with i600 rom, and asked, that is there any way to repair it here in Hungary?...

Sorry if this question has been asked in the forum, nemogli would you suggest I might install wm6 with a memory card on the i600? if so, what combination keypad? and another question: people who set on i6a0 rom from the i607, as you have your phone repaired? I have it just as you do not include ((((( look forward to your help) B)

Hi everyone I know this post is old and I have the same problem, I figured out the solution but don't know how to do it,
I know that if we get a working i607 eboot.nb0(bootloader), we can run it from sd card with JumpSPL if we manage to get the jump adress of the i607 ,then with the working bootloader we can install an i607 eboot/pda/phone rom from pc .
Here's a link on how to do that: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=334667
But I don't do it because I don't have any programming knowledge, so if someone is able to do it,
please help.
