Odin is the official Samsung firmware flash software for Windows PC. Odin download is the first thing to do if you want to install stock .tar.md5 firmware or TWRP recovery on Samsung devices. You can download Odin ZIP for free (all versions) from direct links. Odin flash tool can install firmware binaries (BL, AP, CP, CSC [CSC and HOME_CSC], and PIT) files. As of now, the latest Samsung Odin version is Odin3 v3.14.1. If you are a Mac or Linux user, you can use Heimdall or Java Odin.
One of the good things about Samsung devices is the easy availability of stock firmware binaries and an even easier method for flashing them. Using Odin, you can not only update your Samsung device but can also restore it to stock and fix the boot loop.
What is Samsung Odin?
If you own a Samsung phone or tablet, you must be familiar with Odin or Odin3. Odin is a very useful tool that detects your Samsung device only when it’s in the Download or Odin Mode. It can flash firmware and recovery files with .tar or .tar.md5 extension.
Developed by Samsung, Odin was originally meant to be used only in the company’s service centers. The Odin tool we use is actually the leaked version of the official one released by Samsung but not distributed publicly. Most Samsung users might need to download Odin at some point of time for different purposes.
Download Odin for Windows PC (All Versions)
Samsung Odin tool works with Windows PC. If you are a Mac or Linux user, you can download Heimdall or the Java Odin from below.

Hi Rekesh, my galaxy note 4 is stuck on recovery booting…. set warranty bit: recovery
Hey Rakesh, I just bought a used G955U and for some unexplainable reason its without full firmware or real rom, all it has is a combination bootloader that lets me test the phone.
This is the installed “rom” and I would just really like to run a stock firmware, but I can’t get it to work. Flashing attempts of any kind keep ending up failing. do you have any advice on what i could do? It also shows on the screen rpmb fuse blown. Thanks
Can you show me the Odin screenshot?
Thanks for the response, but I got it working. Apparently my G955U is locked to AT&T
Hi Mr rakesh. How is it going sir hope you are doing good. I have the Samsung galaxy s8+ sm-g955fd duos international version from the UAE but I want to change to a different country firmware. Could you tell which one I could use please. Am from Jamaica. I would appreciate your quick response
You can send your reply to my email address is [email protected]. Thanks
Thanks for response mr.rakesh ,but which one would you recommend been that am in the Caribbean?
Why do you want to change the firmware? Are you having any issues?
No Mr rakesh I don’t have any issues with it but I just figured been in Jamaica maybe I could use a different firmware that is closer to me a just saying
Hi rakesh I have the s8+ duos,model sm-g955fd with the UAE firmware. Could you tell me which other firmware I can use. You can reply to me by email. My email address is [email protected] and I am from Jamaica

Works like a champ. We received 20 S6 devices with version 5.1.1 but in Verizon system it stated they had already upgraded to 7.0 so we could not utilize 4G LTE signal. Found this app and was able to quickly get them going.
Glad to know, Kevin!

Further updates will be available or not??
Since you are using the phone outside the US, you’ll not get OTA updates.
Good morning dear… I have to ask something.. my mobile don’t show mobile data on off in quick setting option? What is wrong?
And 2nd thing can I update further my mobile software manually as I hv done if available?
Is it possible to update to 7.1.2 ? As i recently updated to 7.0…
Try editing the Quick setting tile settings. You may find the toggle there.
Is there new update available for S7 galaxy??
You have already updated to Android Nougat 7.0, right?
Is it possible to upgrade 7.1.2 ..as i recently updated to 7.0??
Yes, but for that the official 7.1.2 update must be released by Samsung first.
Hi Rakesh …hope u ll be fine …. i want to know tht can i change my S7 firmware from G930A to G930F??
As i already updated to android N 7.0 by following ur instructions …remember??
What is working?? Mean we can change firmware?
Where are you from?
Just click the PIT button on Odin and add the PIT file to it.
Click AP and add the firmware to it.
Check Re-Partition option in Odin.
Click the Start button.
My wife has a note 4 on T-mobile. We bought this phone second hand because we could not, and still can’t, afford a new phone. It did not have, or seem to have, this or any other major issues when we bought it, as it worked fine for about a month, with the only issue being connection problems to the GPS services in the phone.
This phone is currently stuck in a boot loop and the only screen that I can get it to load to and stay on without resetting again is the Downloading screen with the little green robot. I had gone in and done a “factory reset” and cleared the cache in the boot selection screen but I have yet to be able to physically sign in or set up the phone. Usually it doesn’t let me get this far, it starts to boot up and then reboots before the white booting screen clears, over and over and over again until I pull the battery out. It seems to stay in the downloading screen when put there, but my computer says it’s not recognizing the device, it used to read it just fine. I’m assuming that this is due to the factory reset since I cannot load to set up the device.
The issue, even though I’ve talked about a couple things, is that the phone will not actually go through a boot cycle. It’s a bit expensive to take to someone to repair the phone, and a new phone is out of the question, so any ideas would be appreciated. Phone had to have battery replaced due to swelling of the original battery (which was aftermarket) and has an official Samsung battery in it now.
It has stayed on the Downloading screen the entire time I have been typing this, so I think it is safe to assume that this screen is the only way the phone doesn’t continue resetting.
The downloading screen says as follows, and I have no idea if this is correct or messed up:
(Red) ODIN MODE (HIGH SPEED)
(White) PRODUCT NAME: SM-N910T3
(White) CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL
(White) SYSTEM STATUS: OFFICIAL
(White) FAP LOCK: ON
(White) KNOX WARRANT VOID: 0X0
(Gray) QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE (CSB)
(Gray) AP SWREV: S1, T1, A1, A3, P1
(Blue) SECURE DOWNLOAD: ENABLE
(Red) UDC START
I see FRP (Factory Reset Protection) is turned on your Note 4. Since your phone is not in a working state, you can’t turn it off from phone Settings. Did you try installing a stock firmware?
where can i get the firmware to upgrade my samsung tab p1000 to a kitkat version
Yours is a very old device and Samsung didn’t release the Kitkat update for it.

Any assistance or direction would be appreciated.
if I want to install the cyanogenmod 11 on my Samsung Galaxy S3, do I need to use the recommended Odin version or just the newest?
Thanks for advice.
Use Odin 3.09
Thanks for the quick answer, so I guess if i want to get Cyanogenmod 13, I will need to take 3.11.1, right?
Odin is used to install only the stock/official firmwares on Samsung devices. If you want to install CM 13, you must install it using a custom recovery.
Oh, didn’t know that. I thought I need Odin to get the recovery like CWM or TWRP on my phone. 😛
Thanks for the information, seems like I need to check how and where to get those custom recovery.
Thanks again for the quick reply.
Thanks a lot.
please i need help my Samsung Galaxy tab 4
Hi, what help do you need?
My samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100) is in continuous bootloop. I tried to do a factory reset in recovery mode. But it does nothing. In the recovery mode, the following phrase in red is written:
did not match sized ‘/system/csc/common/system/csc/default_workspace.xml’ (No data available)
When I boot the tablet, I get the following message: “Unfortunately, TouchWiz.home has stopped”. It remains on for about 50/55 seconds and then reboots. Within these 50 seconds I can uninstall some apps. But when it reboots those apps are still there.
I downloaded the firmwire for GT-P3100 from sammobile and tried to flash it through ODIN in different versions (3.12.3, 3.11.2, 3.10.7, 3.09). The result was FAIL for 5/6 times. Finally I used ODIN3 v 1.85. It took one and a half hour but the result was PASS. When the tablet rebooted, the bootloop was still there. I went to recovery mode and the same message in red is still there. I did factory reset and cleared cache and restarted, There is no change. I still get the Touchwiz error, And the bootloop is still there.
Can you suggest me what to do?
Can yow show me the pic of the recovery screen?
Okay, is your device booting normally? I have had the Galaxy Tab GT-5800 in the past and it worked normally despite that issue. It happens when you install a firmware with a different CSC that the one your device belongs to by default.
Install a firmware with INU CSC and it should be fixed.
It boots normally but shuts down and reboots in less than a minute. It is in a continuous boot loop. As suggested by you in another article, I had enabled USB debugging and installed a firmwire with INU CSC (downloaded from sammobile) with ODIN3 v1.85. As I wrote earlier, the result was PASS, but the tablet is in the same state as earlier.
In that case, some hardware issue might be the culprit. However, before contacting Samsung care, you should try installing some other version of firmware.
I will install another INU version of the firmwire and report the result. If that does not work, is it advisable to install non-IMU versions of the firmwire?
leeexlutheeer ,you need to download currect Firmwares from the link than try it 100% is avail.
help. i’m stuck. always fail… i’ve already using every odin’s version and already debugging the usb, already following all the rules.. but always fail. i’m going mad and stres.
Was USB Debugging enabled on the device? Also, show me the Odin log.
I dnt think so …. i cnt enable usb debugging cuz bfore using the odin i can only access ondin mode . N recovry mode
Ѵїрцг Јдяүдг ,you need to download currect Firmwares from the link than try it if you not done,the’re is my email id you can contacts me,, [email protected]
PLEASE tell me what to do
@Rakesh Ji . While installing ,its showing failed . Pls hlp
Give me more details.
Rakesh Ji , i tried to reboot,Deferent USB Port AND also Odin10.7 still this same error.. My phone is SM-G530F
Are you trying to downgrade firmware?
Restart pc, reboot phone, try a different USB cable and port.
Also try Odin 10.7
I want to downgrade my S6 from 5.1.1 to 5.0.2, but Odin cannot write. It ends with “Complete (Write) operation failed”. What can I do?
flash a custom rom and then use odin to do 5.0.2 because when samsung released the lollipop update, they ended up breaking downgrades
