    The ability to use ODIN does not indicate root access. There is a stock Jelly Bean ROM for Virgin.

    Go with the .exe. I am pretty sure that comes with ODIN One Click. Makes things a little easier.

    Turn off driver signing on the Windows 8 pc than uninstall all drivers and reinstall and you should be fine.or use a different pc.
