Restore a Samsung Infuse 4G back to Factory Settings

Before venturing into bricking my wonderful Samsung Infuse, I made sure I would be able to get it back to it’s original Factory State.  Here is the process…

  1. Make sure Samsung Kies is installed on PC
  2. Download and install Odin from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1116251
  3. Extract to a folder on the desktop
  4. Place your phone into download mode (pull battery, replace battery, press and hold both volume buttons while plugging in the USB cable)
  5. Run Odin3 v1.7.exe as administrator
  6. Make sure your phone shows up in Odin as COM##
  7. Click the PIT button and choose infuse.pit (and make sure Re-Partition is checked)
  8. Click the PDA button and choose PDA_UCKD5.tar.md5
  9. Click the PHONE button and choose PHONE_UCKD5.tar.md5
  10. Press Start
  11. In the rare case that it finishes and your phone proceeds to boot loop, pull the battery, replace it, press and hold both volume keys and then press and hold the power key, keep holding all three buttons until 3e recovery comes up, select “delete all user data”, and finally select “reboot system now”.

Good luck and please post any comments about information I might have missed in my steps
