Step 2: Extract Odin zip file and you will get Odin3 v3.13.1 along with few other files.
Step 3: Power off your Android device. Wait 5-6 seconds for vibration to confirm complete switch off.
Step 4: Now, put the Samsung smartphone on Download Mode by pressing and holding down the Home & Volume Down button together while pressing the Power button. For few tablet devices press Power and Volume Down button together. A warning screen will come up; press Volume Up button to enter Download Mode.
Step 5: Now run Odin3 v3.13.1 (see Step 3) as an Administrator because Admin privileges is required to complete the process smoothly (only applicable Windows Vista and higher).
Step 6: Now connect your device to your PC using USB cable. An “Added!!” message will appear in Odin’s message box. If you don’t get the same then you should try another USB port (try USB port located in back in your desktop PC). If that too doesn’t work then you should reinstall the driver. If you successfully see the “Added!!” message in Odin then you are ready to go in next step. You should also see COM port with a number in Yellow if you successfully added your device.
Step 7: Click the AP Button, and select that .tar.md5 file that you get in Step 2.
Step 8: In Odin window, make sure only Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are selected.
Step 9: Re-check everything that we mentioned in Step 7 & Step 8 above. Now, once satisfied hit the START button to begin the flashing process.
Step 10: Once flashing completed, your Samsung device will restart and soon you will see a PASS message with green background in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin. You can now unplug the USB cable to disconnect your device from the computer.
