Odin3 is Samsung’s tool that makes it extremely easy to install new software on your Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Ever since Samsung started producing Android-powered handsets, it also produced a handful of tools to keep the phone users comfortable.
Odin gives Samsung Galaxy users complete control of their device. With the help of this utility, users can perform many operations apart from just installing a new piece of software. Odin can be used to install a new custom recovery, to root the phone, to install a custom bootloader, a new CSC or Modem file and even a PIT file to re-partition a Galaxy phone. Odin’s latest version is v3.12.10.
The new version brings support for new Galaxy smartphones that were released this year. If you are buying a brand new Galaxy phone and you want to carry out some manual software-related tasks, it’s important to use the latest Odin3 v3.12.10.
Before downloading this tool, it’s important to understand a few aspects. Odin basically has 4 tabs. There is an AP tab that was formerly known as the PDA tab. This tab can be used to load .md5 or .md5.tar files. There is the CP tab which loads the Phone or Modem files. The BL tab is used to load the bootloader files and the CSC tab is used to load the CSC files. In Odin options, you can find the options to restart the phone after flashing a particular file. You can also select a PIT file if you want to re-partition your phone.
As far as Odin’s use is concerned, Odin is more than helpful in some extremely dangerous stages. If you have bricked your phone or it’s stuck in the bootloop, the only way to rescue yourself is the use of this tool. In case your handset is rooted and now you want to unroot it, Odin is there to restore it to factory settings. If there is a new software update available, and it’s not available through OTA or through Samsung smart switch, you can get the .tar file of the update and flash it manually using Odin. The list of Odin’s uses keeps expanding like this. The idea of discussing this stuff was to give the users a glimpse of what Odin is and how it works. We can now get back to what we came here for.
