First, the machine that i attempted to flash was windows xp, (no service packs though, maybe that could be a reason?)
Second, i dont think my phone was charged enough. I had attempted the flash at around 7pm, and i had not charged my phone since around 7am.
Third, i notice a error message when i opened the UMDL file. I can no longer reproduce this, and i forgot what the error said. But once i clicked okay on the message box, the program opened fine.
Fourth, I had followed directions to a t, installed all drivers, unchecked usb connection, im not a nood at this...But yet i could never get past 48% when i tried to download EBOOT. Finally, out of frustration, i resetted my phone while the EBOOT was stuck at 48%, then, once my phone loaded up again, the EBOOT loaded to 100% very quickly, shut the phone off, and killed it.
I also had the SCH-i910 || (WM6.1)[DPRAM] as a platform.
