Which Odin version to use for your Samsung device

Understanding Samsung Odin options

    While downloading the right version of Odin for your Samsung device is the easy part, understanding how it exactly works is the real question. A first look at the main screen of Odin as seen in the screenshot below can be quite daunting to somebody who has never used the software before.

     Here’s a breakdown of all the options and the main buttons on the right side that come with Samsung Odin and what their uses are:

Auto Reboot: You can use this checkbox option to set the device to automatically reboot once the device software flashing process is complete.

Re-Partition: The option enables you to re-partition the device to its default state. It is especially useful if you end up partitioning your device and incur issues.

Reset Time: Simply enables you to reset the flashing timer once the entire firmware flashing or rooting process is completed on Odin.

PIT: Defined as the Partition Information Table, this button can be used with the “Re-Partition” checkbox to set a customized partition system on your device. You will need to specify a .pit file to flash with Odin when using this button.

Bootloader (BL): This button is used to flash a custom bootloader to your Galaxy device. You will need to procure a compatible bootloader file and insert into Odin to flash it.

PDA (AP): The main button that the majority of users will be using no matter what Odin version to use, PDA helps to flash firmware build to the device. Simply press the button and insert the compatible Samsung firmware or custom ROM that you want to flash on to your device.

Phone (CP): This refers to the baseband/modem version of the device.

CSC: Referred to as Consumer Software Customization, this button is intended to help you add a .CSC file to the device. These type of files contain details such as regional or carrier specific files which may include APN/MMS settings for the carrier.

IMPORTANT: As an inexperienced user who is new to the world of Samsung Odin, we suggest you stick to basics when it comes to using the software. Make sure you avoid the more complex features like re-partition and bootloader tools when using Odin software.
