Installation and Features MUST READ BEFORE USING
So You must have CWM/TWRP Recovery Installed to use this tool. Here is detail guide to get CWM on your device.
Procedure to get CWM : Click to Show Contents if you want to know How to flash CWM. If you have CWM installed then move to next step - MultiTool Intallation and features.
Download Philz_touch_*n7100.tar.md5 Also you need to have Kies OR Samsung USB driver installed on PC.
1.Open Odin and select PDA tab (see image below) (Get Odin from here)
2.Point to recovery file you have downloaded philz_touch_* -n7100.tar.md5
3.Now switch off device and reboot in download mode
press Vol down + Home +Power, And then, press Volume UP button in Warning Page to enter the Download Mode
4.Connect device to PC and wait till device successfully added to com port (it will turn light blue) (see image below)
5.Hit ‘Start’ to flash
6.Once it flashed successfully, you can see 'PASS' in table above the ID :COM, you can disconnect device from PC (see image below)
[Note : normally, phone should auto-reboot into recovery.
If it reboots into android and your recovery remains stock, repeat above steps and untick "autoreboot" in odin. Once flash is done, keep pressing power button until it reboots (normally will go to recovery)
when in recovery, if you choose option "reboot system now" and you get "yes - disable flash recovery", select that option to avoid stock recovery overwriting cwm]
On successful flashing your recovery change to CWM, Now Next step How to use Multitool

In case your device is previously rooted and on reboot you can't see SuperSU app in drawer OR if you unable to update binary, simply update from Play store and it should work.
B.BusyBox - Routinely this doesn't needs and most of app needs root works without this too. Still any of your app demand this then you can select this option also you can do it later too.
2.EFS Backup If you are newbies and don't know why you need this then first read this thread. I recommend all user to make EFS backup if you still don't have.
A.EFS Backup : This will make EFS backup in format of raw imahe efs.img to int SD card MyEFS folder
B.EFS Restore : This will restore previously made backup in case you lose IMEI and need it.

You can switch to different recovery like
A.Philz touch CWM based recovery

A.Old Modem LK6 : Don't Flash this on New ROM ME6 and later otherwise you will lose IMEI
B.New Modem MG1 :If you downgrade ROM and lose your IMEI, flashing this new modem can restore your IMEI.
6.backup Restore general - Helpful before trying different MODs, if that doesn't work you can restore previous file wuth this.
A.Backup Framework folder - Will make backup of System/framework folder to IntSDcard/DrKetanMod/framework folder -Needs 100MB free space
B.Backup System Folder - will make backup of System/app folder to IntSdcard/DrKetanMod/app folder. it needs appr 700MB space.

A.Backup Bloatware - Select this to backup bloatware before removing it so you can restore anytime you need it.
B.Remove Bloatware - You can remove batch bloatware with this. To remove selected bloatware use this tool
8.LockScreen security bypass
A.Remove Password - If you forget your lockscreen password/Pin/Pattern, you can bypass security with this option. This will remove PIN/Password and you can reset new. In case you bypass Pattern then you may have pattern on reboot but you can unlock with any pattern and you can reset your new pattern.
9.Prepare device to use TriangleAway Newbies are not knowing about their recovery/kernel so this tool will help to reset stock.
A.Clean device - This will remove all left over of Super user app and SU, also remove Busybox and symlink of busybox. As well this will Replace CWM to Stock recovery. But still clean root access will remain present to use triangle away app. That can be unroot with SuperSU settings.
Again if device doesn't have SuperSU app OR fail to update binary then update it from play store.
Remember after selecting this option your recovery will be stock and if you need CWM, you have to use Odin again
B.Select This If you have stock kernel - If your kernel is custom and you want to make device clean you also have to select this option along with A. to use triangle away.
No more Flashable zip OR Tar needed to flash extracted recovery/kernel.img OR modem.bin
You can extract recovery.img or boot.img or modem.bin from stock ROM by simple unzip tool and put file on Int/Ext Sd card root directory then you can follow below mentioned task from aroma to flash that stuff.
A.Flash Kernel from IntSD
B.Flash Kernel from ExtSD
