    Default [GUIDE] How To Flash .tar Files In Odin 3.07

    The Samsung drivers must be properly installed and phone recognized prior to flashing with odin.

    Wait until the software installs completely before plugging your device into the computer. When you have completed driver installation, plug in your device. The computer should now tell you it is installing drivers, click on the details and wait until there is a green check by all the drivers. Unplugging your device before it's complete will cause you problems...
    GS3 Drivers Download and install on your computer.


    Using Odin

    1. Open the "Odin307" folder and right click on "Odin3 v3.07.exe" and choose run as

    administrator. Odin will open.
    2. place your phone into download mode. Turn off phone - press and hold volume down, home

    button and power button at the same time. When you see the warning push the volume up

    button to continue.
    3. Plug your usb cord to your phone and computer and wait until you see any number and com

    in the com
    4. Check the PDA block and browse to the tar file you would like to flash.

    5. that settings are correct for what you are doing
    See Note Below.

    If you are flashing a "PREROOTED tar", a Return To Stock tar or you are already rooted and just want to flash a recovery tar you will want to check the "Auto Reboot" option. The phone will reboot when successful.

    If you are rooting your Galaxy S3 by flashing a custom recovery over your existing software version and will be flashing root in recovery (TeamEpic_Root_from_recovery) you will have to UNCHECK the "Auto Reboot". You will see "RESET" in the upper left block when completed.


    When all this is setup Odin should look like this:



    6. If everything looks like the picture, click on the start button in Odin.

    Note: Full image tar files are very large and can take as long as 15 minutes to complete. Smaller files such as recoveries normally only takes 10 to 20 seconds.

    When the phone leaves download mod and starts to reboot you can remove the usb cord.

    Hi there,

    I have just flashed Omega 24 for I9505 using Omega Pro files. everyting is perfect except Wifi doesnt work.
    Now I want to flash the Modem using Odin yet when I downloaded the modem (I9505XXUFNB9_GSM_LTE_Modems.tar) Odin does not find the file.

    No matter where I save it, uncheck the security box (in properties) or use any other Odin verion (used every possible version) the file does not show up.
    My phone is recognized, yet under the buttons PDA or Phone, no modem.

    HEEEEELP I even downloaded Win7 with no apperant result. I am sure there is a simple solution. please let me know.

    Kinnd regards,

    Seb

    I have found tar files linked at xda in a thread for my phone variant.

    Odin doesn't give you the tar file, you have to find them and download them. Odin only installs them.
