May I request this to be stickied? People keep asking how to ODIN back to stock and what files to use, etc. They're all listed here.

Exel, you should add a small section of how to actually flash a rom while in recovery. Give the step and a quick rundown of what it does per step. Just a thought. A lot of new folks ask that a lot.

I agree a more of step by step with a mini explanation and then I think it should be sticky

Basically a complete no brainer guide. great start and will help as too...

This really is a great guide! Very informative and should def get moved to stickies. Some things you could add to it are things like how to make tar files out of other rom iso files and flash via ODIN and also how to backup and restore system and EFS partitions as well as maybe recovering from a partial brick (idk if you have any experience with usb jigs but a guide like this one would really help!!) Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading your next guide!

Done.


There are always going to be redundant questions. Everyone needs to make sure to refer people to this thread and it should evolve quite nicely.

Question Still have a yellow triangle!
Hey I did these steps to the T and I am completely stock rom and recovery without root and triangle away worked but I have one problem... okay when you use triangle away it sets your counter back to 0... but when you flash the stock rom via odin doesn't it trip the counter again? now I dont have root anymore and when I go into download mode there is still a yellow triangle. However in settings > about device it no longer says system modified, it says Normal.. Is the triangle in download mode the triangle that alerts Samsung of a hardware flash or is it a warning for us that says not to load one cause its dangerous? Thanks
