[Odin Method]

Early Preparations

  • Make sure that your device is exactly as mentioned above. To check out what device you have, go to Settings > More/General > About Device or Settings > About Device and match the model number. Be careful about the device model number, flashing a file on a device not listed here might result in bricking it up. In that case, we may not be held responsible.

  • Your device’s battery should not be weak. In case your device goes dead during the flashing process, your device may get soft bricked and you might be in need of flashing stock firmware and that will ultimately result in wiping up your data as well.

  • Always use the original data cable to establish a connection between your Android device and your computer/laptop. Using ordinary data cables might interrupt the flashing process, so to avoid any mishap, you need to meet this requirement as well.

  • Backup everything!

    Backup SMS Messages
    Backup Call Logs
    Backup Contacts
    Backup Media – Copy your files manually to your PC or Laptop.
    Backup EFS – If rooted, otherwise skip this step.

  • Make sure that you turn off Samsung Kies while using Odin3 flash-tool. Samsung Kies will interrupt Odin3 and will result in causing errors and may not let you flash your desired firmware. Also, make sure that you turn off any antivirus software you’ve installed and also disable firewall to avoid any connection and flashing issues.
