Holy crap! This worked for me... I was getting "firmware upgrade fail" screen on my Samsung Exhibit sgh-t759 - I used the latest Odin 3.07 and all is ok now!! YAY!!
zImage.tar is in PDA with defaults checked, changed nothing in Odin:
<ID:0/005> Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
<ID:0/005> File analysis..
<ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/005> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/005> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/005> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/005> RES OK !!
<ID:0/005> Remain Port .... 0
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0"
now to get CMW to install - I keep getting "signature verification failed" in recovery mode... I tried to use odin and unpluged my cord in the middle of flashing (doh!) which got me to the firmware upgrade fail screen, hah... ..
