Default [GUIDE] How to use Odin for GT-I9070

Odin is the saviour tool for all Samsung devices. The method for flashing by Odin differs from device to device.
This thread will give step by step instructions on how to flash a stock rom from Odin on the GT-I9070/p :


A. Download Odin tools from here : http://d-h.st/3zJ
Pass : shaaan

B. Download the stock rom from www.samfirmware.com

Setting up Odin :
1. Make sure you have installed the necessary drivers for this device. The drivers can be installed from within KIES or seperately. (I will upload the drivers shortly).

2. Run Odin as administrator.

3. Setting up the files is divided in two types depending on the firmware type :
a. If the firmware is a multi package file, put the files in the corresponding sections.
ie. CSC file in CSC section, PDA file in PDA section.

b. If the firmware is a single package, add the single file in the PDA section.

4. Now that Odin is setup, put the phone in download mode. To do that, power off the phone and press 'home+power+volume down' buttons together. Keep the buttons pressed till Download mide appears.

5. Now that Odin and the phone are setup, connect the phone to the device. Odin will detect the device and show something like 'com port (1)'

6. Flash the device.

7. The flash will take 5 minutes for a full flash on average.

8. When the flashing is complete, DO NOT remove the device until Odin shows ' PASS '.

9. The device will reboot. Remove the device, go to recovery mode and do a factory/data reset.

That's it. Happy flashing peeps..!!

This should be sticky. A lot of people is asking how to revert to original FW, or similiar questions that is connected to reverting. And it is almost at the end of forum, and thay cant see it.

From what I was able to find in other guides it is ONLY 'Auto Reboot' and 'F. Reset Time' to be checked.
All others to be unchecked.

There are some posts not to bother with that .pit file that is inside Odin .zip file.
Odin package from sammobile got 2 .pit files for 8GB - GT-I9070_EUR_XX_8G and GT-I9070_EUR_XX_8G_20111220_KL6 and one for 16GB
(at least paired with XEO region XXLD1) not only that one we got in link form 1st post.

I was also able to find some info that if you use .pit check also 'Re-Partition'.
Now I am curious about if It would be good idea for me to actually Re-Partition my phone - bought it used (not new) and my PC detects only 4GB of internal SD. Will it increase custom binary counter? (so far it is at 0 and I would rather keep it that way)

Is it going to fix that issue so I will be able to use all 8GB (minus system partition)?
If so how to use it and what .pit file to take?
.pit only, re-partition only and run it once, then single-package as PDA with reboot and F. Reset on another flash run?
Or maybe all at once?

BTW you guys ROCK.

It is normal to have 4GB on internall SD. The rest of it goes to system partition, application partition and RAM I think...

googled a bit more and found it out too

BTW - both of those 8GB .pit files are identical (according to 'comp' tool in windows) so there is no reason to use re-partition - other than sth went totally wrong and you are trying to recover from brick or sth serious as this .pit file is already on your device.

Just flashed unbranded stock for XEO region - original one was branded.

NOTE to anyone who is still thinking about safety of this method:

After initial reboot - when it was reconfiguring in recovery mode - or however you will call it (just before odin should say 'pass' - still in that little font screen) windows started to reinstall usb drivers - odin log in bottom corner said 'disconnected' and even then my newly flashed ROM is working as it should. I would rather keep it connected till Odin confirms all went as intended but in case of similar issue - do not get heart attack
