If you have messed up and done something wrong with your Samsung android phone and you want to install the stock Samsung firmware then you have to do nothing but follow this simple tutorial very carefully. Doing these tricky things with Samsung androids are very easy, Odin is the software that makes it easy to play with Samsung android phones. Odin is the software that is used by the Samsung to flash all those ROM’s and firmware stuffs. But somehow the software has been leaked on the internet and we guys are using it to install custom ROM very easily in Samsung androids.
I have already covered how to root Samsung android phone in my previous tutorial and if something has gone wrong, you can always refer to one of my tutorial on how to fix Samsung android phone stuck at Samsung logo or how to unbrick Samsung android phone. Now in this tutorial I’m gonna tell you how to install stock Samsung firmware using Odin.
If something is wrong with your Samsung android and flashing the recovery.tar file doesn’t help then you might need to install or flash the stock Samsung firmware that you can do with the use of Odin (designed especially for Samsung android phones). Basically it is a very easy process to install a ROM using Odin, so you don’t have to worry about anything. Now, let’s get started.
Installing the stock Samsung firmware using Odin
Stuff you need–
- A Samsung android phone
- A laptop/PC
- Odin software installed in your PC/laptop [download Odin_v3.07.zip]
- Stock Samsung firmware file [download your Samsung phone’s firmware from here]
- Common Sense
The Tutorial –
Visit the link provided above and start typing your android’s model name in the “Model Selection” tab, select your phone’s model and hit OK. Now download your android’s official firmware specific to your country and save the file in your PC/laptop. You’ll notice the downloaded firmware file is a zipped file, extract it and make sure the extracted file is a MD5 file type.
Now hold your phone, remove your phone’s battery and put it back after a minute. Now go to download mode by pressing – Volume down + Home Screen Button + Power Button, release the Power button when the device vibrates but keep pressing the other two buttons, hold on a second and your device will boot into the Download Mode. Press Volume up button to continue.
Extract the Odin_v3.07.zip file and open it. Connect your phone to your PC via data cable. You’ll see a green tab around the ID:com tab on the Odin screen, that means your phone is successfully connected.
Make sure the following options are selected before starting the flashing process –
- Auto Reboot – enabled
- Re-Partition – disabled
- F. Reset Time – enabled
- Flash Lock – disabled
- LED Control – disabled
- Nand erase all – disabled
- T Flash – disabled
Now click on the PDA and navigate to the extracted stock Samsung firmware file (MD5 type). Select it and wait for a while, the Odin will take some time (around a minute) to check and process the MD5 file.
Sit back and relax and make sure you don’t interrupt the process. The flashing process will take around 20 minutes. Your phone will reboot after the flashing process.
Now you can use your Samsung android normally. Hopefully there would be no problem any more. I hope I was able to save your phone’s life. Share your views in the comment section. Please also notify me for any broken links, it would be very appreciated.
