Description

Hello,

I have noticed that heimdall will not proceed to flashing i9300 into 6.0 0003 recovery mode, when using "wrong"/incompatible USB cable. Maybe this should somehow be mentioned on the wiki (if someone else gets stuck on the same error)?

Here was my heimdall output when using the "wrong" USB cable...

  1. dmesg

At this point I have manually compiled heimdall ver. 1.4.0 and heimdall ver. 1.4.2, which did not help and gave me the same error.

When I have repled the USB cable the heimdall got to work properly.

Hello.

From what you say, this issue seems to lay in the USB cable and/or in heimdall.
Nothing seems to be related to Replicant at all.
If no further information is brought up involving Replicant, I'd close this issue as non-replicant-related in a few days.
