  2. Launch, next, the Odin tool v3.07.exe on the notebook. Then follow this up by plugging the phone to your laptop and then waiting to see if you did it successfully; which will be demonstrated by a message saying “Added!!” and by a yellow ID:COM box.
  3. If no connection whatsoever is going on, then you opt for one of the following solutions we have for you: get another USB port to use or just flash, again, the USB drivers.
  4. Next you will have to tap on some keys and then select some files that will open after you click on said buttons. Here are the instructions: tap PDA, opt for a file that contains CODE, then be sure to click on Phone, choose a file with a MODEM part in its name, tap CSC, opt for a file which has CSC in the name, tap PIT and choose a file that comes with a .pit extension.
  5. Don’t go away from Odin; stay where you are and make sure you check some boxes which are Repartition (check it only if the file with the .pit extension was opted for), Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time.
