Default [Q] A few noob Rooting/Rom questions

I was browsing the 4.3 OTA beans thread and came up with a few questions. I only want the 4.3 to get my Galaxy Gear working with my GN2. I really have no other desire to flash custom roms and mod my device.

What is the difference between the ODEX and DEODEX? I have no idea what either of these is or mean. I am unsure of which version to flash to my i605 that is currently stock, but will shortly be rooted and ready to flash.

Also, what version of ODIN do i need to use to flash the necessary firmware?

Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.

After doing some research I think I've learned a little about the odex vs. deodex...I'm not into theming so I guess the odex version would be fine for me...

In the system/app directory of your phones root storage there is by default a .odex file that follows each and every built in app. The ROM builder removes the .odex file to make it easier to theme your ROM. If you are simply looking for a stock experience, use the ODEX. As for ODIN, whatever version is latest, or whatever version is linked in the Root Instruction post will work. I have v3.07.

IIRC, Nephilim ROM has Gear support
