nothings ever simple mate, downloading the cooper file, it is a text file not a .ops file, even though it's called Cooper_v1.0.ops so therefor i can't load it into the odin as it's not an ops file
October 13, 2012, 11:16 pm
also, does my phone need to be turned on, off, or in download mode etc? or doesnt it matter

You downloaded the 5830I firmware, from Sammobile , thats the firmware it will install, all the guide is showing is the basic steps needed.
The Cooper V1.0.OPS is a required file for ODIN
You follow Step A , missing out Step B

Click on the Cooper.OPS text in the guide , and use the Password to unlock mediafire download , password is also in the guide

I know mate this is what i'm doing
i've got the odin from the guide, i've got the relevant firmware from sammobile, i've followed the steps in the guide n i'm ready to do it. but the download of the cooper file appears to be wrong as it downloads as a .txt file, not a .ops file so i can not load it into odin
i've used the password also

It downloaded as an OPS file for me , all i did then was rightclick on it and UNLOCK it under properties as its a windows shell file

Thats your problem you should not open it , just download it.
I have added it to a zip file above
October 13, 2012, 11:32 pm
that was default as i clicked download mate, but then if i change it to save file it still saves as .txt
thanks for the zip
getting there now

After all this is may still be broke lol , if it is , when you send it back , if they replace it ask them if you can have the broken one , send it to me so i can stamp on it several time's lmao

i think something really doesnt want me to have a phone now..
i've downloaded the odin from the guide, i have the correct tar file, i now have the cooper
i configured everything as in the guide, then the second i add the tar file, this happens:
i open odin again, do it all again, load the tar file n this happens:
had to use task manager to close odin
October 13, 2012, 11:42 pm
i'm really sorry about all this Paul mate honestly
you must be as frustrated as me
if i manage to get all this working, only for it to still be broken, i will personally deliver it to you myself n also provide you with a sledge hammer n chainsaw

Maybe you need to reboot free up memory , you did follow the guide about when to turn phone off and put it into download mode?
October 13, 2012, 11:44 pm
yes mate. you mean reboot my laptop? i'll do that now
October 13, 2012, 11:45 pm
Odin has to be started before you connect the phone
October 13, 2012, 11:46 pm
Goto www.teamviewer.com , download and install the windows version as personal use , then open it and then PM me your ID and Password , it is a remote assistance viewer save a little time.
October 13, 2012, 11:54 pm
will do that now. could the tar file from sammobile be wrong? i havent even connected the phone to the laptop yet. i open odin, tick the relevant boxes, open the cooper file, by opening the cooper file this unticks the one package button, so i tick it again and open the tar file. as soon as i open the tar, odin crashes

Have you downloaded Teamviewer yet?
October 14, 2012, 12:06 am
in process of doing so
do i select the default option of 'no' when setting up?
October 14, 2012, 12:07 am
Not installed it for a while , just need to be for personal use
October 14, 2012, 12:11 am
it asks 'do you later want to remote access the computer you are installing teamviewer on at the moment?'
default answer is no, n it says it will generate a random password that i'd tell you, n it changes everytime i open teamviewer
or if i do yes, i set a predefined password for my laptop so i can access it from anywhere.
just leave it as no?
October 14, 2012, 12:12 am
leave it as no
October 14, 2012, 12:16 am
PM sent mate
October 14, 2012, 1:19 am
Nice one for all your help tonight mate. Your a true diamond
October 15, 2012, 11:17 pm
October 16, 2012, 12:41 am
TF for that.
October 16, 2012, 1:07 am
can safely say that somewhere, in an o2 shop not very far away, there is a very lucky store assistant that doesn't have my phone impaled in his skull/and or buried up his jacksy

Keep humming that song I sent you mate.
