Step 2: Extract the Stock ROM


After downloading software  (normally a compressed file), you need to extact/unzip it to certain location of your PC. The file types that Odin uses are *.bin,*.tar and *.tar.md5.


Step 3: Extract Odin on you PC.


After downloading odin on your PC, extract it to Desktop or another location you'd prefer.

After extracting, right-click to "Open as Administrator". It may prevent certain issue from happening.

Step 4: Boot your Samsung device into Download mode.

Follow these steps to enter Download Mode/Odin Mode


1.       Power off your device

2.       Press and hold Volume Down key, Home Key and Power Key

3.       When your device vibrates, release Power key while keep holding the Volume Down key and Home key


4.       Press Volume Up key to enter Download mode, which has a green robot figure and “Downloading… Do not turn off target!!)

Step 5: Connect your device to PC.


You device should be automatically recognized by Odin. At the lower-left of Odin interface, it should show a message that says "Added!" and in the meantime you should see a light-blue box at the ID:COM section stating "COM:3" (the number depend on which USB port you have plugged the device cable and is irrelevant).

Step 6: Click "PDA" or "AP" to add tar.md5 file that you have extracted and then "Start".


Whether it is "PDA" or "AP" depends on the version of Odin that you used. But the md5 file goes to either "PDA" or "AP".


After md5 adding the file, click "Start" to begin the flashing process.




When the flashing process is done and if everything goes well, you should see a big green box saying "RESET" or "PASSED" (depends on the version of Odin is used). By now, the device should be rebooted and it is safe to remove/unplug your device.
