ODIN V3.07 for Galaxy SIII



Warning: Using ODIN can change your bootloader to show that the system is MODIFIED and may increase your ODIN flash count. This may void your Warrenty. There are currently no confirmed methods to reset the ODIN count or remove the Triangle and Modified tag. The current Triangle Away and JIG may or may not work. Use at your own risk! ~thanks to pinoymutt for the warning.

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Tutorial Instructions for using odin
NOTICE: I am not responsible for anything that may happen if you chose to use the below instructions... If your phone blows up... suck it up... and go buy new one!

Step 1: Download and Install Necessary Drivers
Drivers from Samsung's Site
OR Mirror

Step 2: Download and Install Odin 3.04

Odin 3.04
OR Mirror

Step 3: On your Galaxy S3 got to Settings/Developer Options/USB Debuging -> check the box next to USB debugging -> say OK to security warning


Step 4: Turn your phone off


Step 5. Press Volume Down + Home (Center Button) + Power until the phone boots up to Warning screen


Step 6. Press Volume up once to enter download mode


Step 7. Open Odin3.04 by running as administrator and make sure all check boxes on in the
Option section are unchecked except for Auto Reboot

Step 8. Plug your phone in to the USB cable and wait for the phone to be recognized by ODIN... When the phone is recognized the first rectangle under the Odin3 logo will turn yellow and show a com port


Step 9. Click on the
PDA button and select your .tar file

Step 10. make sure no other boxes other than Auto-Reboot are checked and hit
Start.

Step 11. Wait for the process to complete


MOST OF THE THINGS YOU WILL USE ODIN FOR (IE: ROMS & KERNELS) will use the PDA button - The Phone button is for Modems and Radios only and using it to flash anything else can and will brick your phone - In my time using ODIN I have never used Bootloader, CSC, UMS, or PIT files....

This prompted me to go check for an updated version of Heimdall (for Linux & MacOSX), but their site seems dead atm...

When you say "select your .tar file" where do we get that from? Is that what we're gonna be downloading when we d/l a rom?

Yes... Tar files are what the kernels and ODINable ROMs will come as...

On the GSII the only thing Odin was used for was to flash CWM the first time and then restoring the device to stock. Thats it. Most roms are typically a cwm flash able in my experience.
