Default Rare poster, sorry!

Hi all. I don't post on here often but I thought I'd try to help. I tried about 10 times before I got it to work. I sometimes need step by step instructions down to the smallest detail to figure out some of this Android stuff lol. So I though I'd add some foot notes for people who need help. Below are OP's instructions with some edits (things i did) that may help. (I don't know how to post his pics sorry)

1. Download file(use chromium-browser)

(HAD TO REMOVE LINK, NEW POSTER)

2. UNZIP SM-V700_tizen_to_android.zip

3. RIGHT CLICK ON Odin, RUN AS ADMIN

4. flash 1_dn_android.tar

4A) After the file is flashed, it will do nothing. Remove Gear from cradle.

5. HOLD POWER BUTTON TO GET INTO DOWNLOAD MODE (This is where I was messing up, I kept trying to reboot into recovery)


The following message is displayed,

7. AGAIN AFTER IT FLASHES IT WILL DO NOTHING. WHEN FINISHED, REMOVE FROM CRADLE

8. HOLD POWER BUTTON TO REBOOT, SELECT RECOVERY THIS TIME. THEN IT SHOULD SHOW "UPDATING" THEN REBOOT ITSELF.

9. BOOM, DONE[COLOR="Silver"]

This happened to me. I realized I was flashing the update and not stock Tizen. (if thats what its called)


Make sure you are using V700XXUCNE9 to upgrade from Android to Tizen. Then update with: V700OXACNF1.

Hope that helps.
