You should have a second look as there is a wealth of information in existing threads. But to summarize briefly, you can try these steps -
You may not have installed the support files properly. Read the directions carefully and reinstall the app.
Try wiping your cache from recovery mode.
Clear the app's cache and data in the application manger in the settings menu.
As a last resort, close any background apps that may be causing a conflict.
in the three + weeks since I loaded the program have searched thru quite a few key words, including the exact error message, combinations of odin not working, tmobile mobile odin not working, ad nauseum. None of the threads I saw, and there were many, addressed odin not opening at all. Never since loading. Most folks have issues w/ flashing the wrong types of files, or not checking some box. I have never seen the odin screen. And in any search I have never seen that problem described.
When you say supporting files, what are you referring to? I know that the MO lite offered here requires supporting files, but I paid for mine, didnt know it wasnt complete. I tried loading up the lite version and got the same thing, instant shutdown. Makes me think that it is not an issue with MO but maybe something on my phone. Are you aware of any background apps which may cause conflict? I cleared the MO cache and data. Also forced a stop and rebooted. And removed/reinstalled.
So by posting here, I am not really looking to refine my searches so much as looking for someone who maybe had the same issue, overcame it, and is willing to share that insight to relieve my stupidity. I guess that wouldn't be you, although I appreciate your thoughts on the subject.
