Sorry for being blunt. But, I gave you a dl link in post 5. I extracted and opened it to the Odin screen. This is with Chrome on a highly secure company computer. No issues. So, I am confused on what else you want--

Forget about the links in the closed thread, it happens all the time.

The second hit took me to one of those download pages where there's links to "Download" many things but were all crapware installers. One link said it would install Odin, and the file downloaded said it was odin, but it ran an installer that kept offering to install yet more crapware, and I had to keep unclicking the default crapware stuff like toolbars and such. Eventually it just exited without installing odin.

I then searched my hard drive and found where I had put it, a couple months ago...

So why is Odin this way. Why isn't there a main site where new versions are released? Why does it have to be passed around on forums?

Dude, don't download if you don't want to but it's what you need. Personally, I'd use v1.85. But I'm old school.

I'd trust @rugmankc download. He's a great contributor to this forum.

One last thought--


Wow I had a bad day and it gets worse--

jd said google and learn--

1. Samsung releases Odin versions

2. They are many places-http://www.samsungodindownload.com/--just one--it is also has other useful downloads

3. No one has "responsibility" to post them--our devs give enough of themselves

4. You can always start a thread--there may even be one on xda
