What is Odin Flash Tool or Odin3?
Samsung Odin Flash tool is a Stock ROM/Firmware flashing tool for Samsung Galaxy Smartphones and Tablets running Android operating system. The tool was made by the manufacturer, Samsung itself, to be used internally and in its authorized service centers to flash stock firmware on their devices. But thanks to our beloved developers over at XDA (and other kind souls on the internet), who have been kind enough in sharing the updated versions of the Odin Tool with us.
Now that it is on the internet, you can freely download Odin Tool and use it to flash stock firmware on your Samsung Galaxy devices. But, the benefits of using the Odin Flash tool does not stop there. You could do a whole of other things with this powerful tool which we can see in the upcoming sections.
Why do we need Odin Flash Tool for Samsung Devices?
Android is the king of customizations. When I say customizations, I don’t just mean changing wallpapers, themes and icon packs. No sir. I also mean the real customization such as installing a custom recovery, taking full control of your device by installing a root package, installing a custom Kernel specially made for your device for performance improvements and much more.
Android, being very diverse the way it is, does not feel the same on all Android devices. For example, if you keep the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy S10 side by side, you wouldn’t be able to tell they are running the same OS in the first glance. The reason is that Android OEMs modify and customize Android to add new features and functionalities to it gain a lead over other OEMs. You would not need a tool like Odin in order to flash stock firmware or a custom recovery on a Google Pixel or OnePlus device. They are built that way. And Samsung devices are built in a different way. And that’s why you need to download Odin for Samsung devices.
Odin Tool: Features
1. Flash Stock Firmware
With Odin, you can Flash stock firmware on your Samsung Device without tripping KNOX Counter (Knox is a security solution added to Samsung Galaxy devices by Samsung). So this is extremely useful to come with a fix in a condition like crash, boot loop or any issue related to software operations.
But the advantage does not stop there – it lets you install updates or stock firmware which are not yet available on your device. Samsung does not roll out updates worldwide in one go. It rolls out Android updates in a staged manner. For example, Android Pie for your device is available for download in the Netherlands but not in your country, yet. You don’t have to wait for it to be available. Rather, you can download Samsung Stock Firmware of that country and install it on your own device. Pretty neat if you ask me.
2. Flash Custom Firmware (Flashing Custom ROM)
Flashing a Custom firmware stands for replacing content aiming modifications in the firmware. Odin allows an effective processing
3. Flash Recovery File (TWRP)
Like Stock and Custom firmware flashing Odin gives the chance for flash Stock or Custom Recovery. In that way, you will be able to add many sorts of functions to your Samsung Android device.
4. Flash Kernels ( .tar/.zip/.img)
Flashing Stock or Custom Kernels is possible. Notice, you must have Odin flashable custom kernel (.tar) and compatible with your Android device.
5. Flash Root Package (MD5 and .tar files)
Odin can Flash custom root packages such as SuperSU on your device to letting root access.
Understanding Odin Terminologies
In the official Odin Tool, there are a lot of abbreviations used and it might get confusing for a normal user and for the first time users. Here are a few brief explanations on what they mean.
CSC (Consumer Software Customization): It is specific to a particular geographical region and a carrier. It contains the software packages specific to that region/carrier (Settings such as APN settings).
PIT (Partition Information Table): You only need it if you screw up your partition table or if the firmware specifically requires it because of a change in the partition table layout. Most of the time, you can/should simply ignore this setting.
BL (Bootloader): As the name implies, this option is used to flash the Bootloader of the device.
AP (Application Processor or PDA): Android Partition (aka system partition) which has the core Android files. Under previous Odin versions, this was called “PDA”.
CP (Core Processor): This is used to flash the Modem of the particular device.
