How to install Galaxy S4 firmware with Odin? I can’t install latest I9500 XXUBMEA firmware udpate using Samsung Kies and OTA method due to custom kernel. Samsung won’t let you upgrade firmware using official way if you already done the unofficial way previously. Anyway, it is fairly simple to use Odin to install Galaxy S4 firmware. In short, just download firmware first. Then install it. That’s all. Still don’t understand? No worry, just read on to find out…
Note – upgrade firmware should not bring any issue. All applications, data and settings will be there. But this is not the same for firmware downgrading, you need to factory reset. Else bootloop issue might be occurred.
