    Are you up and running?

    The custom description is not normal. The flash should return everything to stock. Were you rooted before?

    Not that I was aware of. Samsung updates shows the device, depending on region code up to 4.3.

    Hello! I have a N7105(4.3) and an N8000(4.1.2), both of them still waiting for the Kitkat... I would like to update them via Odin, but i have 2 questions.

    Do i need to root?

    Does the update via Odin factory resets my devices? (because i am not ready now to do a factory reset)

    By the way, is there a way that after a factory reset i can get all the apps, settings, wallpapers, ringtones back with a click like it was before the reset?

    Thanks

    If there is a ROM out for the device, then Odin can flash it.
    Odin does do a reset.
    As for a one click restore, not that I am aware of.

After searching for the update I came across your forum about flashing with odin...I gotta say thank you guys you made it so simple...no problems no fails. All I gotta do now is re-root my device and get rid of all that bloatware....Again...thanks guys..

    Hi Guys,

    So i have an S3 which i bought in Ireland. It is GT-I9300. My phone bricked during a samsung upgrade. My device is not rooted. I can still access ODIN mode by pressing the required buttons etc.

    I have tried to update the stock frmware through Samsung Kies and Kies 3 as per another guide on here but i have had no luck that way. So next i downloaded Odin and the Stock firmware to flash. I successfully completed all of the steps and it showed on the ODIN screen on my s3 that the firmware was present but it did not install and the phone was stuck in the Samsung boot screen loop. So my question is my did the firmware not install when i successfully managed to flash it using odin? Maybe it is the stock firmware i used? Can someone help me locate the proper stock firmware to use please.
    Please see photos attached


    Odin Mode
    Product Name: GT-I9300
    Custom Binary Download: Yes( 2 counts) - This is 2 as i tried it twice
    Current Binary: Samsung Official
    System Status: Official

    I would look at either Samsung updates or sammobile for your downloads. There might have been a download error in the file you have.

    I am pretty sure i used Samsung updates, i am now trying a firmware from sammobile hopefully this will work. Is there anyway to be 100% sure your using the correct firmware?I bought the phone from a friend and it was factory unlocked - i don't know if that makes a difference.

    Can I re-install latest firmware on that way or maybe rollback to older build of 4.4.2? I bought phone with I9505XXUGNF1 firmware and updated over OTA (2 updates in a row, one from July and one from August) and after that I have nothing but problems with my battery. I tried factory reset, it is better but not like my previous build. I would love to reinstall full ROM, something like clean install of Windows or restore option from iTunes (i used this on my iPhone). I tried to use KIES but getting message "GT-I9505 does not support initializing". My phone is from Germany but i'm using it in Croatia. I never rooted my phone. Sorry for my English

    Yes, you can do this. You might get update notifications, but you can do this.

    OK thanks, I will go back to build before update, because latest update is horror for me, i already tried factory reset and wipe cache through recovery mode, after that I installed all apps, and my dad called me on my phone, and it blocked on lock screen and I had to restart phone. This is last Samsung for me, they are super slow with firmware updates. Does Odin format whole phone and install firmware as a clean install? I need to know this for future updates (when 4.4.4 came out I'll try to update through Kies), because I will avoid OTA updates, it never worked good for me, even on iPhone, updates over iTunes were always better and more stable. And do you know why I'm getting "GT-I9505 does not support initializing".?

    I always assume that Odin will wipe the entire device. Back everything up and go from there.

    To a degree, yes. If you had Knox in both OS versions it should be fine.
