For your convenience, here are all the files you need and some basic instruction to flash your Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700. This page is not meant to be a tutorial, just a handy reference.

Odin 4.03 Flash original firmware to your phone.
spica_jc3.ops Needed when you flash with Odin. Original firmware for Android 2.1.
i5700_LK2-08_PDA.tar Patched Root Kernel which fixes VoIP.

The basic flashing procedure is:

  1. Install USB Drivers and unzip firmware
  2. Disconnect USB cable
  3. Start phone in download mode (Vol Down + Camera + Power)
  4. Connect USB cable
  5. Start Odin as Administrator
  6. Select spica_jc3.ops and original firmware package
  7. Flash and test your phone
  8. Flash the rooted kernel which includes recovery mode

Once the new kernel is installed, use Vol Down + Call + Power to enter recovery mode to install ROMs packaged as .zips.

I suppose I am a problem solver. Either that, or I am an organic carbon-based life form whose function is to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I recently published my first book. It's okay, I guess. Lots of sex and drama--plus it's a true story. Let's see... What else? I like reading, swimming, playing music, and annoying Seda. KAPOW!

Figured it out by testing, the kernel (pda file) flashed with the ops file and then clean/wipe data and cache. However, I cant install any apps on this rom, the phone says: No applications can perform this action.

Thank you for your reply Roger, that worked. Odin needed its dll file though, luckily I had the file on my laptop and the phone is now flashed. About the kernel, I just flash the pda file without the ops?

@s4ph1r3 it's been a while since I had to do this, but I'm pretty sure it goes under 'One Package'.

Where in Odin should the original firmware file go? There are 4 choices: BOOT, PHONE, CSC and One Package.
I know that the OPS is for the ops file and PDA for the pda file, but I have no idea where to put the firmware file.
