Download Odin3 v3.04

Samsung Galaxy S III is here finally. And there is also a new Odin3 version for Samsung Galaxy S3 too. By the way, Odin3 is a PC application that was designed to help us update Samsung Android phone firmware. You can install stock or custom firmware, kernel, bootloader, modem and CSC with Odin3. And use it to root Samsung Galaxy S3 with CF-Root too. It is a must have tool if you like to customize Samsung Galaxy S3. And get more juice out of your Samsung Android phone. Update – Odin3 v3.04 is workable on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 too.

Odin3 v3.04

Note – You need to install Samsung Kies first in order to use Odin3 because Samsung Galaxy S3 needs its USB drivers. Else Odin3 can’t detect Samsung Galaxy S3 in Odin Download Mode. But do ensure Samsung Kies is not opened or loaded in system tray when using Odin3.

Download Odin3 v3.04 here.

  • Vincent

    Hi Jay, i have a question here. recently i have install a kernel called ninphetamin3 used for overclocking the cpu. My s3 was not rooted when this kernel was installed to my phone.
    Can i check will i face any problem if i now proceed to root my s3 ? by the way, can we overclock our s3 without rooting our phone?

    • No idea will you face issue or not when rooting. Yes, overclocking software needs root access.

  • xavier

    Hi, guys.
    An ex-good frien of mine have been touching my S-III. He made root an so on (no idea of what it is). I noticed that I was not receiving any sms. Every morning, when I could see “Messages has stopped”.
    I asked him to restore my phone to normal and he tried but did not get it. Now he’s left for a 3 months journey and my S-III does not work.
    I read that by pressing vol down, star and the other button you coudl recover, but I pressed recover and told me “successfully restored”, but it does not start. I stops at “Samsung Galaxy…”
    Coud anyone give a hand?.



  • xavier

    I have read again this page and it seems that belongs to the Good Samaritan of Jayce.

    So, Jayce I’m refering to you. Thanks a lot if you can help me.

    I have downloaded Kies and Odin 3, but I do not know how to work with them.


  • xavier

    Hello Jayce!
    Thank you for the mail.
    I have followed the steps indicated, but to no avail. On step 6 I should get the telephone loading but it remains fixed on the Samsung Galaxy SIII GT-I9300. It does not restart. The number of counts was 4.

    I’m afraid I’ve got a real brick on my hands.

    • Load into recovery mode. Factory reset. Then install stock firmware with Odin.

  • xavier

    How I can load into recovery mode?

    • Hi xavier, please take time to study the guide that I sent you.

  • xavier

    By pressing the 3 buttons I get again the Odin mode and: Downloading…, Do not turn off target!!

  • xavier

    Jayce, I’m following the instructions on the guide, but everything goes ok until point 6. Instead of starting I get an empty battery.

    • Charge your battery then.

  • xavier

    Jayce, I’m sorry if I’m heavy. I do not know how but I’m in recovery mode. I have pressed wipe data/factory reset. I have confirmed wiping data.

    In Odin 3 I have marked phone and autoreboot but gives me: OSM All threads completed (complete 0/ failed 0)

    What can I do next?

    Thanks very much for your kind answer.


    • Hmm… You did not install firmware correctly in this case. Try to install firmware again. Make sure the firmware is correct.

  • Tommy

    • Hi Tommy, what had you done until you face this issue?

  • alex

    Hi i started Odin and it gave me error that tmax.dll is missing but i see in the zip that it exists.

    • Try on other PC see.

    • Abdul

      @alex @Jayce Ooi actually there is another option other than trying on another PC, every problem in Computers have a solution and your problem is quite simple my friend , you’re getting this error message because you tried to run the program before extracting it, all u have to do is unzip it and then run the program 🙂

  • Faniso C Zimunya

    Hi. My SG Note 2 just went blank after the battery went flat. I charged the batteries (I have a backup one) and tried switching it on with both but still nothing. One of my friends says it might be the firmware that needs rebooting. I did install a couple of apps that day so I thought that one of them might be the culprit. Any advice? I have never installed firmware on a phone before so I thought I’d try follow these steps…

    • Hi Faniso, is your Note 2 still able to boot up?

      • Faniso C Zimunya

        I’ve tried to boot up, but there’s no response. It remains blank. The little light won’t even come on when I plug in the charger.

        • Hmm… Sorry to hear that. Can’t do much if you can’t even boot up the phone.
