So maybe its my background in Linux, but there's something that just creeps me out about Odin. I tried searching here and on Google, and all I can find are links (mostly broken) to download it from various cheesy file sharing sites.
Does anybody know where the software actually comes from? Who wrote it? Is it legal, or was it swiped from Samsung?
It seems weird to me that a software community that is based so much on open source software relies so heavily on such a shady system.
Am I missing something?
I think it's code may have leaked from Samsung. It would make sense that Samsung would flash firmware and partitions via usb download mode in the assembly line at the factory. It can be done via jtag but I highly doubt they do that as the firmware flash would be part of the function testing of the finished product.
There is likely a standalone computer designed to flash several devices at the same time. If not Odin, it uses a software that does essentially the same thing.
All I know is that Odin and these so called "factory" md5 files (wherever it actually comes from) seem to save me every time.
