    You have to hold both volume rockers down, and plug in the USB. Always works for me.

    2.2 did not fix my GPS. Still doesn't get a signal.
    No, contrary to popular belief I CAN press buttons.

    There was a run of phones that had the defect when they left the factory. All the button pushing in the world wouldn't help them.

    Luckily the recent software update seemed to fix it, so all is good and happy in android-land.

    Not 100% sure but I think the Odin thing is Windows only. You might be able to do it with some sort of VM though.

    Thanks

    To the OP:
    I'm fairly certain that DesignGears would rather you linked back to his original post instead of using mirrors, then people that appreciate his work can donate if they like.

    If its the "stock" Odin - then yes you will need to re-root it. Same process as before though and relatively painless. This will also wipe your phone - so backup your applications, musak, photos, etc.. before running it.

    That's not what he asked, he asked if it would undo the SIM/network unlock if he flashed it. The answer is no, it won't.

    There is a Mac/Linux alternative called Heimdall flasher, google it or search on Xda
