Default How to use Odin 1.3?

Hi, I'm trying to use Odin 1.3 to flash JF7, and the SRE mod. I was running JF6 with the SRE mod. So far, I've used Odin one-click to wipe (with phone booted), reformatted internal sd (after reboot), and one-click restored to factory JF6 (from download mode). Now, my phone is booted, and not connected to USB. I have "Odin3. [Android + SLP]" open, and extracted the I897UCJH7.rar file, and also extracted the resulting I897UCJF7_homebinary.rar file.

Here's my question--how the hell do I use Odin 3?!? I've read that it can be picky, and I would rather just do it right the first time I've read all this stuff about .tar and .pit files, but cant seem to find them from any of the rars i've extracted. Odin3 is able to find I897UCJ7_homebinary.rar when opening a file in the "PDA" option of the program. When opening a file from the "Phone" option of the program, I'm able to open the aforementioned rar, and also the modem.bin file in the folder extracted from I897UCJ7_homebinary.rar.

So, do I open the file from the PDA option, or the PHONE option? Also, what's the deal with these pit and tar files? Do I need to load either to flash JF7?

I just can't seem to find a comprehensive overview of the program anywhere....

Thanks a lot!

Edit--turns out I897UCJF7_homebinary is actually a .tar file. The rest of questions still stand

Edit--It also seems that the I897UCJF7_homebinary.tar might just have to be loaded into the PDA sections of the app. Not sure about this yet.

Edit--I think the answer might be here, post #194: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=780887

Yeah, that is pretty much all you need to do. Make sure you are using the full odin program and not the one click.
