Question
Hi all,

First time Samsung Galaxy owner. Sorry I have a stupid question. As per the Root instructions:

- Follow these instructions to the letter. Do not touch any buttons or checkboxes that are not listed below to touch!
- Unzip the attached Odin3-vX.X.zip file
- Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file (see posts below this one)
- If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
- (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
- Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
- Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
- Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
- (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
- Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
- Click the Start button
- Wait for Android to boot
- Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

I don't see when I should first connect my phone to computer. Can anyone please clarify? Thank you in advance.

His saying that encase you had it connected in the first place. The first time you connect it to your computer is when you "Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5" from odin and your phone is in download mode.."- Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button,"

Thanks a lot sonny21 for your prompt response.

I clicked Start button and got below message:

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-t0ltecan-sghi317m.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)

But my phone doesn't reboot. An Android on my screen and it said downloading... Do not turn off target.

What should I do now?

Hi funtimez,

Did you click the Start button again? Did you disconnect your device while on that screen? Thanks.
