    Hey
    iv installed the ROM and it works fine, tnx for that.

    i did a “wipe data/factory reset” & “wipe Cache partition” but i still have some old files on my SD card, why is that and what was I supposed to do if i wanted to delete all files?

  • Lio

    I think that my phone is stuck. How long does it takes all the process?

    • SGS User

      the process takes max 10 minutes.

  • Navin

    Odin appears to be stuck on: Do Not Turn off Target. It’s been like that for about 45 minutes now. Any ideas on how to solve that issue? Apart from just kill everything and try again?

  • Peach

    Had the same problem as you other guys…. kept freezing and going nowhere…but after about the 3rd time of shutting odin down and trying again it worked. Thanks!

  • shahroz cheema

    okay my phone was restarting and then i broke i used 1 click to fix and was still restarting my version was 2.3.3 and i did 2.3.4 and checked repartion on odin and works perfect

  • sunny

    hi, i am downloading it!! my version is 2.1, will it need anything else other than the above softwares???

  • jordan

    hi guys i had the same issue with the odin “do not take off target” i closed down odin, disconnected my phone and removed the battery, then i downloaded odin 1.3 “older version” and everything worked fine. i dont usually post on these sites but i thought it might be helpful.

    • Sudara Madushan

      thank you a lot bro, same happened to me, and the old version works….

  • JT

    My phone was stuffed. I had stable rom then I flashed with insanity rom and it screwed everything. It was bricked for 3 days. Tried everything but nothing worked. Thanks to this file. My lovely phone is working again.

    md5 hash is invalid?? it says

  • Nicholas Petropouleas

    I’m new to all this flashing and rooting stuff. Anyway, this worked fine for me with the provided Odin 1.7 download (I tried with the older versions first due to some comments on another forum and it kept failing, saying ‘Can’t open the serial(COM) port’).

    However, only incorrect part was how to enter into download mode. It didn’t work for me! What did work was the following. Turn off phone, hold Volume Down, Hold Home key, hold Power. Done :)
