JOdin3 Web Browser Based and Offline flashing tool
This is the official support page for JOdin3, a CASUAL-X project. JOdin3 allows you to flash Odin files on Linux, Mac and Windows. It is powered by CASUAL and @Benjamin Dobell 's Heimdall tool. Using the power of CASUALcore, LibPit and Heimdall, it enables flashing of Odin files in the same manner you'd expect from the offical Samsung Odin tool.

Read more:

Never download from anywhere except the link above. I won't have the CASUAL name tarnished with malware. Also, verify that your download has the proper signatures with the "jar-signer -verify" command.

Easy flashing
We expect this to be relatively trouble-free. However, there are some stumbling blocks. First, JOdin3 requires a PIT file, which can be automatically obtained, but it requires a device reboot. Jodin3 will walk you through this process. On windows, drivers should be auto-installed. On Mac, Heimdall will be auto-installed. On debian-based Linux, Heimdall will be automatically installed and you will receive in-app instructions on all platforms.

With that said, 99.9999% of problems should be solvable with the simple troubleshooting guide below

Troubleshooting Guide
Mac: Visit the Heimdall Website and install the packages for your distribution, then reboot:
Linux: Visit the Heimdall Website and install the packages for your distribution:
Windows: Put your device into Download mode, install this driver and reboot.


Special instructions for Mac:

This is a CASUAL-X project. CASUAL-X projects are based on or around CASUAL but not part of the main stream. This CASUAL-X project will be updated alongside of CASUALcore and will be available as long as our servers can handle the load. You can read more about CASUAL at

@Benjamin Dobell for creating Heimdall
@jrloper for streamlining processes and creating drivers
@Loglud for providing the server space and many helpful utilities which enable this
@Ralekdev for analyzing PIT files helping me to gain a better understanding of how they function

I haven't had a chance to use JOdin3 yet. I am super excited and hoping it will help get my bootloader unlocked. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get there after taking the Dec 20th OTA. The forums seemed pretty barren for those with bootloaders still locked =/. Plus, the Note 2 is old enough now that I am guessing support is falling off.

Just a two, hopefully helpful comments:
  1. It appears the JOdin3 link on the bottom of the post on the homepage has a typo. It is currently "" which 404s.
  2. Another smaller but possibly still important issue is: the link on to this post "" doesn't appear to be in an <a href> tag.

Thanks for all the hard work!

Edit: I tried to follow the youtube tutorial and JOdin seems to think my pit file is corrupt. I also tried to create a pit file manually using Heimdall and still had no luck. I suspect it is due to me having taken 4.3 OTA (I605VRUEMJ9). I was able to get root using safe root ("Based on the CVE-2013-6282 exploit by cubeundcube"), not sure if that helps. Also not sure if it's relevant but, while I can get recoveries installed but, on reboot phone complains and i have to flash stock to continue.

Hey guys, nice work. Now I once thought about something like that, too, but I had another idea: Maybe it would be somehow possible that you don't need to download a firmware but just paste a download link or something like that in jodin3 to flash it. Just a crazy idea

I use a Mac and only heimdall is available on it. It was very difficult to use and odin was not compatible with it. But now with JOdin3, I can easily root and flash my devices. A huge thanks to all the developer team.

Please post a basic guide on how to begin with JOdin3.

Thanks for your hard work. I run a Linux (Open Suse) and I always had to use my wife's laptop. Now I don't need to talk to her anymore..... Just kidding

Many thanks for your continued efforts to make customizing and fixing phones THAT much better! Truly next level work. I've never had issues with regular Odin that wasn't my fault or the wrong download, but awesome that we have options like this to work across all the major platforms.

Adam. Are you going to be able to help us unlock the bootloader on the note 3.
