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.

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.
