Samsung Galaxy smartphones can be flashed easily using a tool called Odin. Odin is Samsung’s official tool that can install official/stock ROMs, custom recoveries, bootloader, CSC and other such files on your phone. The Odin flashtool can be used to root the phone as well in some cases.
Samsung’s Odin has existed since the very first smartphone produced by Samsung. With the release of new Samsung Galaxy smartphones, new versions of Odin came out with the support for new Galaxy handsets. The new version of Odin is 3.12.7 which supports all the new Samsung Galaxy devices that were released in the year 2017.
Uses of Odin
Odin’s use is not limited to only flashing a new ROM or a recovery. Odin can be a life savior in so many cases. For example, you have soft-bricked your handset and there’s no way to get out of the bootloader screen, you will have Odin to manually restore your phone to the previous working state.
Odin can unroot your phone as well. It can change the CSC of the phone, it can be used to flash a different modem and a different bootloader as well. If your phone’s storage partition is messed up, you can use Odin3 to flash PIT file and fix the partition structure of the phone.
Although you can flash a stock firmware using a tool like Samsung Smart Switch, there’s something that makes Odin more useful. For example, there is a new firmware update available for your phone, but this update is not out through OTA and through Samsung Smart Switch, what you are going to do? Well, if you can get the firmware file from an online source, all you need is the Odin tool to flash it. Updating a Samsung Galaxy phone manually using Odin is the most popular use of this tool.
