Default [Q] (Q) Odin stuck at setup connection

Just got a new Samsung Galaxy S3 and I've been trying to do the quick CF-root

- Model Number GT-I9300
- Baseband Version: I9300XXLE8

Its completely stock, I wanted to root it particularly to get rid of the bloatware. To the best of my knowledge I've done everything correctly.

USB debug on
No Kies running in the background
Odin detects the phone connection when in download mode ("added" appears)
pick the .tar file, make sure repartition is unchecked
hit the start button and it gets stuck at "setupconnection" in Odin.

Also tried running odin in administrator mode taking out the battery for a while to no avail.

Your advice is much appreciated.

Try a different USB port.

Do not connect through USB hub
Try another port (as previous post)
Another USB cable
USB debugging on
KIES process not running in PC tsk manager

Could also try uncheck "reset time"

Sorry to take so long to reply. I've tried all the above except untick reset time.

An interesting note is that I recently tried to flash my Samsung Galaxy S1 as well and it comes up with the same problem. I kind of gave up on the matter and accepted that I can't root my S3, for now anyway.

Any further information would be grateful but not a priority for now.

I do have similar problem but that's because I wasn't in download mode. Are u sure u in download mode?

Default TRY THIS

This happens to me too (new unlocked S3)
I had also given up but then I figured out how to get past it by accident:
When it is stuck, just unplug the USB cable, then plug it back in, and ODIN happily kicks in and does the flash with a successful PASS result.
Done it quite a few times now.

Jsut a weird quirk of the S3 it seems (my old Note was fine).

BTW I tried different USB ports, nonhubs, cables, ODIN183, 187, 304 etc. All did same, until I found this trick, and BTW I am actually flashing via a hub now and it works fine with this trick.

Hope this helps.

Closing all Kies processes via the Task Manager did the trick for me. Thanks!
