    Default Galaxy S3: Odin not detecting phone

    I have Odin 3.07 and have been trying to Root but Odin not detecting the phone. I had USB debugging enabled, disabled Kies and even uninstalled it, have the Samsung USB drivers installed. Nevertheless it failed to detect. I tried every possible thing I could. I'm really fed up of all this. Please help.

    Re-install the drivers, re-download Odin and try different USB ports. Although you have everything installed, often times it takes re-installing for Odin to detect the hardware and work. As unusual as it sounds, something as simple as switching USB ports could solve the problem.

    Also try rebooting both the phone and computer. Make sure you're using a USB port on the PC, and not a USB hub, and even try a different USB cable.

    Using different USB cable worked.

    Yeah, Odin seems to be really sensitive to the quality of the connection. Even a hint of data errors and Odin says "no way." That's probably good, as a bad flash could brick your phone, but it would be nice if the app told you the data connection wasn't good enough, instead of just ignoring the device.

    Yeah in my case it totally ignored. But I'm glad I had one extra cable of gaalxy Ace that I once borrowed from friend. May be it worked bceasue it was smal km cable that was seocifically meant for the usb unlike todays usb chargers.

    Many USB charger cables are just that - meant for charging, not for data connections. The manufacturers skimp on cost wherever they can. You'll often see that one pin is missing in a charge-only cable.
