JOdin3 Web Browser Based and Offline flashing tool
This is the official support page for JOdin3, a CASUAL-X project. JOdin3 allows you to flash Odin files on Linux, Mac and Windows. It is powered by CASUAL and @Benjamin Dobell 's Heimdall tool. Using the power of CASUALcore, LibPit and Heimdall, it enables flashing of Odin files in the same manner you'd expect from the offical Samsung Odin tool.

Website: http://Jodin3.casual-dev.com
Download:http://goo.im/devs/AdamOutler/JOdin3

Never download from anywhere except the link above. I won't have the CASUAL name tarnished with malware. Also, verify that your download has the proper signatures with the "jar-signer -verify" command.


Easy flashing
We expect this to be relatively trouble-free. However, there are some stumbling blocks. First, JOdin3 requires a PIT file, which can be automatically obtained, but it requires a device reboot. Jodin3 will walk you through this process. On windows, drivers should be auto-installed. On Mac, Heimdall will be auto-installed. On debian-based Linux, Heimdall will be automatically installed and you will receive in-app instructions on all platforms.

With that said, 99.9999% of problems should be solvable with the simple troubleshooting guide below

Troubleshooting Guide
Mac: Visit the Heimdall Website and install the packages for your distribution, then reboot: http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/
Linux: Visit the Heimdall Website and install the packages for your distribution: http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/
Windows: Put your device into Download mode, install this driver and reboot. http://android-casual.googlecode.co...ALcore/src/CASUAL/resources/heimdall/CADI.exe

Greetings,

I haven't had a chance to use JOdin3 yet. I am super excited and hoping it will help get my bootloader unlocked. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get there after taking the Dec 20th OTA. The forums seemed pretty barren for those with bootloaders still locked =/. Plus, the Note 2 is old enough now that I am guessing support is falling off.

Just a two, hopefully helpful comments:
  1. It appears the JOdin3 link on the bottom of the post on the homepage has a typo. It is currently "jodin.casual-dev.com" which 404s.
  2. Another smaller but possibly still important issue is: the link on casual-dev.com to this post "http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=49133090" doesn't appear to be in an <a href> tag.

Thanks for all the hard work!

Edit: I tried to follow the youtube tutorial and JOdin seems to think my pit file is corrupt. I also tried to create a pit file manually using Heimdall and still had no luck. I suspect it is due to me having taken 4.3 OTA (I605VRUEMJ9). I was able to get root using safe root ("Based on the CVE-2013-6282 exploit by cubeundcube"), not sure if that helps. Also not sure if it's relevant but, while I can get recoveries installed but, on reboot phone complains and i have to flash stock to continue.

Hey guys, nice work. Now I once thought about something like that, too, but I had another idea: Maybe it would be somehow possible that you don't need to download a firmware but just paste a download link or something like that in jodin3 to flash it. Just a crazy idea :D

I use a Mac and only heimdall is available on it. It was very difficult to use and odin was not compatible with it. But now with JOdin3, I can easily root and flash my devices. A huge thanks to all the developer team.

Please post a basic guide on how to begin with JOdin3.

Many thanks for your continued efforts to make customizing and fixing phones THAT much better! Truly next level work. I've never had issues with regular Odin that wasn't my fault or the wrong download, but awesome that we have options like this to work across all the major platforms.

Thanks for your hard work. So is Odin opensource ? How did you accessed to download mode protocol ? Really interesting..

No way, but Heimdall is an >90% perfect implementation of download mode.

It also requires manually matching partition image filenames to partition IDs or (in the official GUI version) loading a package -- both require a little manual work to convert from Odin format: this tool is an alternative UI that does the conversion on the fly!

first of all HAPPY NEW YEAR TO @AdamOutler

i wanna ask that what is meant by web based flashing and then i wanna ask that what is the difference between this and simple odin

Its exactly what it sounds like. You go to a website and flash your phone. If you want, you can download the app and use it like that.

The difference: This works on Windows, Linux and Mac. This works from a website or a download. This will auto-install drivers on all platforms except Mac ( @Benjamin Dobell needs a Mac Developer ID signer). This is a self-contained single-file executable. This provides better errors and will troubleshoot and fix problems for you. This is a single file rather than multiple ones. This provides way more detailed logs rather than a simple failure like Odin. And its open source.

Its not all roses though.. This can only flash a single device per-start-button-press and not 8 like Odin. Heimdall also has a problem with extremely large files like Note III system images.

As a Ubuntu-Linux user I was waiting for an easier solution for flashing our Samsungs. This will be awesome. Thank you for the fantastic work.

I have an updated Ubuntu system with:

java version "1.7.0_25"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.12) (7u25-2.3.12-4ubuntu3)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

But upon launching JOdin3 I get this message:

"This application requires a newer version of the Java runtime"

Is this a known problem?

(I'd prefer not to install the Oracle version ... if this is indeed a solution for this, hopefully temporary, problem) ;)

Thank you so much.

    I'm looking for the same installs and the links are not working for me either.

    Hello,

    Links for JOdin3 are not working, why?

    Thanks

    Hi guys, the links above are not working & I'm having a very hard time finding Jdoin3 for MAC OS X Can someone help me?


    I have re-upped my latest version I had for JOdin3 here

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/dl/?id=20803
    As the above link sometimes seems to stop working (XDA wassup??) here a mirror: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673956719939825345

    EDIT:
    20 downloads in 1 day. 0% clicked thanks. Can't believe that at least coming back to click on thanks is too much for you. I really understand why so many ppl decide to NOT help others if this one click is too much for you.
    Ok I don't care. suck as much and often as you like but don't cry again if some day no one will be here to answer or help.

    EDIT2:
    Thanks for all those given a proper thanks click in the meantime!
    Yea time goes by and JOdin is included since a long while even in FWUL ( https://bit.do/FWULatXDA ). Check it out ;)

    EDIT3:
    AFH mirror added (see above)

    Unfortunately, Jodin can not be downloaded for a very long time. I'm trying to download jodin3 but the official download link keeps timing out.

    Why is that so? Why does the developer not offer the last version for download? Other developers, for example Chainfire, offer the latest version for download at XDA


    I don't know why Adam is ignoring us but in the meanwhile you could download the latest file here (if you like);
