What issue are you having with Odin connecting to the phone? PC doesn't see it at all or it doesn't load the drivers? Once you get Odin to connect, then just grab the latest tar file to restore. Should be fine. Also, did you just have the stock recovery or Safestrap? And which buils version of the software did you have originally?
