Hi all . Please tell me what I need to additionally enable or disable so that I can see the USB that I connect to the phone?
I have Samsung s3 Neo , original cable. Everything works correctly on another phone as well as on a PC.
Any new features in the new firmware or is it a bug?
@jpmeuret@aibd Hello . Thank you very much for your answers. I would like to add a little information so that it is clear that I understand what I am asking a question about))
So my flash drive is formatted in FAT, I have an original cable that connects to another phone and everything works fine, I also have an OTG adapter that also works well when I connect it to another phone and the phone immediately reports that a USB drive is connected. I tried different settings now i use no data transfer option connect with pc without problems. i have one suspicion but i would like to know your opinion. i installed the firmware everything works the phone is ringing but when i checked the bootloader i saw that it doesn’t match what is indicated here https://doc.e.foundation/devices/s3ve3gds/install. Could this be the cause of my problems?
@aibd Hello . Thanks for the answer . My phone model is Samsung S3 GT-i9300i Models Supported
My bootloader - i9300ixwsbqb1 Special requirements Your device must be on bootloader version: I9300IDDUBQE2
I installed the ROM, everything works except USB, so I wanted to clarify if some changes were made, for example, it is forbidden to use USB by default, you need to enable this function in the settings, etc.
OTG/USB only works on my Galaxy s4 and s4active but not on my s4mini.
Charging during OTG don’t works
MHL/hdmi or MHL/vga don’t works
For my devices
USB files tranfert works
USB internet sharing works
@piero Hello. Thank you very much for the detailed answer. Clarification on your answer.
Do I understand correctly that I have to reinstall the bootloader using windows (ODIN 3)? Or can I do it using linux ?
I would not like to use Windows))
After I reinstall the bootloader, I need to reinstall the ROM, right? There is a chance that USB can work …
@piero Hello . Thanks for your answer and information.
I wanted to ask you and clarify some questions, I see you are well versed in this issue.
Why is it written in the documentation that this instruction will only work with bootloader I9300IDDUBQE2 > https://doc.e.foundation/devices/s3ve3gds/install but in reality I installed it and everything works with another bootloader. Maybe need to change this recommendation? Now USB does not work, but it is not known for what reason …
Caution: Your device must be on bootloader version: I9300IDDUBQE2 otherwise the instructions found in this page will not work. The current bootloader version can be checked by running the command getprop ro.bootloader in a terminal app or an adb shell from a command prompt (on Windows) or terminal (on Linux or macOS) window.
Concerning setting (installation)
Correct me if I’m wrong. I download a general archive which usually contains 4 files (firmware, modem, bootloader and language settings if I’m not mistaken) https://samfrew.com/all/
I also download ADB, Odin 3 and Samsung drivers, then I translate “Download Mode” I connect, I see that the phone is connected (Odin will inform me about this -ID: COM will be blue) then I select AP >> tar.md5 file and click start and wait for the firmware to be installed.
After that I check and I should have I9300IDDUBQE2
Bootloader is not in AP but BL
It is not include in boot.img but in aboot.mbn
About restoring Samsung Stock Firmware :
Using Odin, you must install the four .TAR.MD5 files in one shot.
Using Heimdall, you must have a look to the .PIT file,
and flash all the files exacted from the .TAR.MD5 files (.IMG .BIN .MBN …) to all their related targeted /PARTITIONS
I installed the firmware, doing everything that we are discussing here, but on another GT-i9301i https://doc.e.foundation/devices/s3ve3gjv phone model (screenshot below), it does not make a difference, since the documentation has the same recommendation for bootloader, but it did not work, I think this is a bug. I have two more phones, one has Guava installed, I took the same adapter cable and a USB flash drive and everything worked right away.
@Manoj Hello. Can you please tell me if this is a bug or did I do something wrong? I have this problem on two phones. Everything works except USB, which is not very convenient for transferring information. I did everything as in the documentation but it doesn’t work. At the same time, I connect to the PC via cable without any problems.
