I ran across this about a week ago on one of the many other XDA forums (can't remember which one now).

It is an updated version of Odin3, version 1.30.

All the existing ROM's that I see packaged here that require Odin to flash are bundling Odin3 v1.00, and it seems people have tons of problems with that version. I myself have v1.00 stall/hang more often than it works when flashing.

I figured it'd be a good idea to have a Dev thread on this for several reasons.

1). For people to post feedback on it relative to Odin3 v1.00

2). To find out precisely where this came from, and whether or not it's the most current version.

Odin3 v1.30 works insanely better for me as it hasn't once hung on a flash for me......(yet), though given the differences we all experience in Windows versions (XP, 2003, Vista, 7, x86, x64, etc..) and differences in USB chipset hardware I figure it'd be a good thing to have some feedback and discussion about it's relative merits or lack thereof.

(i.e. Just because *I* think it's way better doesn't necessarily mean that it is)

I do know one thing for certain. If we can all discover a safer way to flash we'll all significantly reduce our chance of bricking our lovely phones.

(note: I figured it'd be a good idea to cross-post this here as it's gotten a bit buried over in Themes and Apps, and Odin3 is a Dev tool of sorts...)

Going to give this a try shortly. Will update on how it goes.

***
Used it to revert to stock then to flash the JI2 modem over FrankinTwiz w/KingKlick's kernel and worked flawlessly.

** Using the drivers found in the Dev section w/Win7 64

I have been using this since this weekend. I have used it to flash my phone 20 times or so. It works just fine. However, I never had a problem with v1.0, so YMMV.

By the way, what are the DLL files in there used for? I just deleted them.

in regards to 1.3, yes, it works, however 1.0 is still the most stable.

I've found the exact opposite to be true. But I don't mention that to be contentious. One unique aspect perhaps of my Windows machines is they're all running x64 versions of Windows (1 Vista box, 2 "7" boxes).

I easily get 70 plus percent fail to flash rates with v1.00 (meaning the flash stalls, almost always at the beginning of the flash), but this may merely be a symptom of the Samsung x64 drivers playing nicer with 1.30 and not Odin3 at all.

So far out of a dozen and a half or so flashes using 1.30, I've had zero failures that resulted in me having to re-engage download mode or face the dreaded "OMGIBRICKEDMYPHONE" screen. I did have one FAIL notice once, but Odin didn't lock up like it always does for me with v1.00, and all it took was disconnecting/reconnecting the phone and clicking START again and all was well.

The plot thickens.

I have flashed with 1.0 probably 40 or so times, and flashed with 1.3 probably 15 to 20 times, and I have never had a fail on either.

I would say that an Odin fail is directly tied to the stability of your computer. I would run a spy-ware check and/or check for driver problems.
