    Default Please help with download mode for warranty issues.

    Hi I want to get rid of the Samsung custom boot and also unroot so I can take ota and send my phone in for warranty because my phone is sensitive to charging. I saw guides how to flash via odin . is that the same as download mode? Anyway I cannot understand them and I can't find one for Verizon. Can someone help... Thanks... I rooted via saferoot and I am running 4.3 I did not unlock boot loader or flash. Warranty bit is at zero

    Download (aka Odin) mode is the configuration that you put the phone into if you're going to flash firmware using the tool called Odin (yeah, confusing) on your computer.

    You can also flash the firmware using the Kies software on your PC. Just choose the second item in the Tools menu (Firmware upgrade and initialization) and follow the instructions (be sure to enter the model number in CAPS). Note that you need to be sure you have Kies v3.

    If you want to use Odin to flash the firmware you can find it http://samsung-updates.com/details/2...35VRUCNC1.html

    I think I was pretty specific that you need Kies v3 - see http://forums.androidcentral.com/ext...%252Fkies%252F

    No need to unroot - you're just going to nuke the phone anyway. Just be sure to wipe the cache in Recovery mode (and Factory Reset for good measure) afterwards.

    Kies is at 0% while it's downloading the file from the Internet, or it's already done that and it's downloading the firmware to the phone?

    Perhaps you should just try Odin...
