Pako777’s i900_EXEcutor v 2.4 (thank you Pako for the great effort, much appreciated!);
Winhex full version (thank you sorg for precious hints).
Here are the instructions:
First we have to get the louvre.mli file from the device (which contains the pda and eboot part). To accomplish that:
1) disconnect the device from PC;
2) go to settings/general settings/USB connection and switch to Mass Storage mode with "My Storage" selected;
3) connect the device to PC. PC will find a new disk. This disk has 2 partition. One is normal and visible (where you probably saved some stuff) and another is hidden.
4) open WinHex, click on Tools>Open Disk, select Removable Medium 6 (1.9 GB, USB) and click ok.
Then access the hidden partition with 512 mb size (tipically partition 2) by double clicking on it. You should see a big file with the name louvre.mli. Right click on it and select recover/copy, then select where to copy the file.
Once you have extracted the louvre.mli file open pako’s executor go to the tools tab and press the MLI button, select the louvre file by browsing through the folder where you saved it. Select model b7610 in the drop-down menu then press go button.
That’s it you should have now two files eb0 (eboot part) and nb0 (pda part) which are flashable with Octans like explained in the I8000 forum.
I recommend you not to flash the eboot part because if something goes wrong you brick your phone.
With this procedure you can recover your device original rom even if you haven't dumped it only if you have never flashed a mst file, but only nb0 files.
Verify the pda version you have going to start/settings/advanced (right tab)/system/version/device/pda ver. The last 3 letters show from left to right the year, the month and the release number.
I share this procedure with you in order to give the community last samsung released roms so if you have a rom more up to date than IL2 for wm 6.5 or II1 for wm 6.1 then please share it here!(post it or contact me with pm)
Finally I remember you as ever:
I'm not responsible for any damages/bricks caused by this procedure. You're accomplishing it totally at your own risk!
