General advice prior to Flashing any phone
Its always best to do a "clean" install. meaning you should remove any old scripts, data, cache, junk before flashing a new ROM, this is like taking a bath before using new clothes. For some models it is a must do, for others it may not be a major problem or can be resolved by flashing the dbdata.rfs
to clear out the remaining junk that you failed to remove before flashing . But if you had "lagfix"
and did not undo it, it can cause internal SD card unavailable situation, which can be difficult to resolve.
Hence before flashing its advisable to
a) undo lagfix, IF you had any.
b) Do a factory reset by settings>Privacy> factory reset ( erase SD Card - optional , as formatting SD card could be too)
c) And even going into recovery to wipe everything is also good.
d) Removing SIM Card and External SD card ( makes it easier for phone to boot up initially after flashing a new ROM)
Doing this will give you a "Clean" install or fresh start for your phone.
Make sure your Battery Charge is more than 50%, Samsung requires you to have 100% charge when using KIES to upgrade.
Reminder, What you do with your Phone is your own responsibility, so do it at your own risk
1). You need to Factory Reset
Phone first go to settings >Privacy> factory reset also can be done in recovery
2) Power Down and Enter Recovery Mode
and wipe data and wipe cache
3) Power down and remove battery, Then reinsert the battery and Enter Download Mode
4) Fireup Odin3
ver 1.32 on PC and Connect phone with USB cable to PC
5) Now select the ROM you had downloaded in Odin under PDA
( do not tick or press anything else ) and DON'T Interrupt flashing unless stuck for some time
6) Press Start
Button on Odin3 and wait till is completed
7) Once phone has booted up and everything is working, power down and enter Recovery Mode, here you "factory Reset" phone one more time
That's it Now you will be using the new ROM you just flashed.
