@Zahir

may be your USB cable driver is not matching the phone download and install the USB driver suitable to your phone it may work properly

I used one tar.md5 file from sammobile as PDA, but when the device try to boot I see the Galaxy S Advance logo and nothing happens...never..

@tomocska You should enter recovery mode, then wipeout data/factory reset. Hold down volume+, home and power button. Release when SGS logo appears. This should help :)

If you will describe the phone make and model and what all procedure you did and  problem you face, it will be easier to recommend solution.

Hi,

I think you have not followed the procedure properly. first activate odin, then put phone in download mode, connect usb cable to phone and pc or laptop, wait for sometime till your phone is detected, now put copper file in pit and *.md5  in PDA block of ODIN wait till start function becomes available, click start and wait till the process is completed. disconnect the phone, switch off and then restart. now your system will work properly.

hope you will find the instructions helpfull

hi, search the USB cable driver in google with your phone make and download the same and install or visit your phone manufacturer's web site and search in download the USB cable driver related to your phone.   First  install the driver  in your computer or laptop,  when the installation is completed, connect the USB cable between your phone and the computer or laptop, after few seconds you will notice the driver is installed to communicate between the phone and the computer or laptop.


Thanks

hi

Extract the downloaded Odin zip file in a separate foleder on your pc or laptop. The *.pit file you will find in this folder. Select this file, copy and past in PIT Block of ODIN.

hi remove battery sim card and sd card from the phone, wait for abt 30 minutes. Install sim card sd card and battery start the phone it will boot in to your previous version if you have followed the procedure properly. if not again remove all component mentioned above reinstall and go into download mode and with odin you  will be able to install flash rom.

hi guy just need some help. I just try to downgrade my Samsung s3 from 4.3 to 4.1.2 with odin program. I Had do what it say over here but the only thing that I forget b4 downgrade is to put my cellphone on debug mode now after installing my andoid 4.1.2 my cellphone don't want to boot up anymore after see the Samsung icon on the start up. Do anyone here have a ideas for that? thank.

Hi makrapassos,

This may be due to non installation of USB driver for your cellphone.  Install  USB driver matching your  cellphone on computer. open odin, connect USB cable to computer,  in now it will detect your phone and the status will be connected

    A friend of mine install another rom and another kernel on my phone because I use to have issues with the wifi and Bluetooth. I don't like the rom he put and I would like to know if the official roms also include the kernel.

    Thank you!

    Hi SubhashSri

    May be you have not disabled  Samsung kies or the antivirus installed in your PC is still running. Disable kies and antivirus , please  go to download mode again in your cell phone,  if you have only *.tar.md5 file extracted from the  firmware zip file, put this  file in PDA box ,  now click start, watch the installation progress, it will  get installed.

    HI, I was using ODIN to upgrade my S2, during installation it came up with an error message. hence I disconnected the cable. Now. I only get to see an image which shows Phone and a PC logo and a warning sign between those.

    I tried many options provided in many portals but nothing worked.

    please help.

    may be you are using old version of kies. delete existing installed skies download a fresh updated kies version contemptible with your operating system. installed usb cable drivers. Run kies. connect your phone through USB cable. let the kies detect your phone and it will work. If it does not means either your USB cable is defective or your cellphone is not contemptible  with kies. you have not mentioned the phone brand name and the operating system with your pc

    I have updated my galaxy pocket  with Indian firmware.  I liked your detailed instructions particularly disable skies and if the is a single file extracted installed in PDA.   These instructions are not given in any of other tutorials and so the enthusiast are confused about extracting tar.md5 and searching for the different files as mentioned in the instructions resulting in failure of installation.  Thanks once again

    Heya, thanks very much for your tutorial.  I've been looking on the webz for two days now trying to upgrade to JB, and your instructions were the only one I found that worked.  Your step-by-step directions were very clear and as such, the upgrade worked perfectly.

     cheers, mate!

    Hi, thank you for the tutorial, I'm pretty new at all the flashing and rooting stuff so excuse my idiotic questions :) . I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 ( GT-N8000 not rooted ) and I haven't received any updates for it yet ( still running the out-of-the-box 4.0.4 ICS ), I live in Iraq and the device from Saudi Arabia so I think that the delay is a regional thing but I want to flash the official German 4.1.2 firmware on my tablet, my question is do I need to root the device in order to flash the firmware using Odin ?? And if I flashed it, is that gonna root the device ?? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
