    Welcome to the forums!

    Have you tried taking the battery out and reinserting it?

    Does anything happen if you do a normal power on (just the Power button)?

    With the phone completely off, if you connect a charger do you see the normal charging activity?

    The LED glows white? Or the phone starts to boot but only to an all white screen?

    If the phone won't boot into Download mode your options are pretty limited:
    1. purchase a JIG, which will force the device into Download mode if at all possible
    2. try loading a debrick image using an SD card (search for 'debrick' in these forums, not XDA or on YouTube - be sure it's for your model phone)
    3. use a JTAG service (ex. http://mobiletechvideos.mybigcommerc...-brick-repair/)

    Odin should only take about ten minutes to flash firmware.

    It has been much more than 10 minutes... I tried to update my GT-N8013 to 4.4.2 and followed the directions to modify the .tar by deleting a few files. I re-tarred and then tried ODIN3.09 to update my pad. The only messages are:
    <ID:0/006> Added!!
    <ID:0/006> Odin v.3 engine (ID:6)..
    <ID:0/006> File analysis..
    <ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/006> Initialzation..
    <ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..
    <ID:0/006> Firmware update start..
    <ID:0/006> SingleDownload.
    <ID:0/006> SS_DL.dll
    <ID:0/006> NAND Write Start!!

    Do I just continue waiting or what? (Luckily, I can leave this sitting.)

    I'd have to question any directions to remove files from the .tar file - that probably accounts for why Odin is hanging.
    You probably want to just flash the stock firmware.

    I am inclined to agree with GSDer. I don't know any good reason to remove files from a .tar file.

    can you tell me what to do when it requires a PIT file? I have tried looking for this but it doesn't seem to want to complete the process without it.
    I have a Samsung S5 SM G900F.
    Thanks for any help.

    You might want to start by looking in the carrier-specific sub-forum for your phone model. You're not likely to get a pointer to the PIT file for your phone in the S3 forums, since the PIT file varies by model, carrier and memory size.

    What led you to believe that you needed to load anything but the PDA file?

    Hi, my S3 crashed whilst showing a video, I had to take the battery out to reset it and hen when I turned it back on again it went into a boot loop and now it only comes up with a white screen when I turn it on. However I can still put the phone into Odin mode.

    After researching on the internet I downloaded Odin v3.09 and downloaded I9300XXUGMK6_I9300OXAGMK6_I9300XXUGMK6_HOME.tar.md5

    However, when I tried to run this, Odin came up with a fail message and reported that there was no PIT partition.

    Is the phone now a brick or is there a way of setting up the PIT partition using Odin? If there is a way of doing this, simple instructions (or as simple as possible would be much appreciated!!)

    Many thanks.

    can i flash another region's firmware on my Note 5?
    e.g. a N920i on a N920T (yes the N920T is unlocked)?

    I've read it was done but some minor bugs/errors were encountered after install.

    Sorry but.. ¿Complete Guide to Using Odin? I don't think so... just flashing and that is only a toy for kids. Can you tell me how to set a new pit file in my phone? Why I have to? It is my business, just tell me if this post is a really Complete Guide to Using Odin.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for this post - very helpful.
    My son's mobile (Galaxy 2 GT-I8160) was having issues connecting to play store. A number of forums recommended device resets, updates, clearing caches, uninstalling some apps. Reseting had no effect, the device said it was already updated, numerous apps including the ones I tried to uninstall showed zero bytes.
    I tried a flash of the device using up to date firmware and the odin software and it sorted it out a treat.
    I am aware of the dangers of bricking a device so I did this as a last resort.
    As I am the curious sort I will now play around with an old scrap device to get familiar with odin.

    Regards djeowen
