How To Install UCLB3 Firmware on Samsung Infuse 4G
- Download UCLB3 firmware.
→ Download Link | Filename: SGH-I997_I997UCLB3_UC_ATT.rar | Size: 172 MB
- Download Odin 1.7 from -> here
Filename: Odin v1.7.exe
- Extract the downloaded file ‘SGH-I997_I997UCLB3_UC_ATT.rar’ to get these 2 files:
- SS_DL.dll [not to be used]
- Disconnect your phone if it’s connected to PC. Switch Off your phone. Wait for vibration to confirm complete switch off.
- Now, put the Infuse 4G in Download Mode — connect USB cable to PC, then connect the cable to the phone while pressing and holding the Volume Up and Down buttons.
- Open Odin (from step 2) — double-click the Odin3 v1.7.exe.
- Connect your phone to PC now. You should get the message “Added! !” under Odin’s message box in the bottom left. If you don’t get this message, then probably there is a problem with drivers. Make sure you’ve proper drivers installed. See point 3 above under ‘pre-installation tips’.
- In Odin, click on PDA and select the file “I997UCLB3-Homebinary.tar.md5″ (from step 3.1).
- Important! On Odin, make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time check boxes are selected. Do not touch any other check box or tab or anything, except as was required in step 8 above.
- Double check everything said in step 8 and 9 above.
- Now, hit the START button to start the flashing procedure. When the flashing is complete, your phone will automatically reboot — and when you see the Samsung logo, you can safely unplug the cable. Plus, you’ll get a PASS (with green background) message in the left-most box at the very top of Odin.
IMPORTANT Note: If ODIN gets stuck and doesn’t seem to be doing anything, or you get a FAIL message (with red background) in ODIN, do the following:
Disconnect the phone from the PC, close ODIN, remove battery, re-insert it, turn phone on in Download mode again, and do the procedure again from Step 6.
- When it has restarted, your Infuse 4G will be running the UCLB3 2.3.6 firmware. Check version in Settings -> About phone.
