Being an advanced user of Android, you might be familiar with the custom ROMs and Firmwares. You might have installed them as well. If this is, then you must be aware that by installing custom ROM on your Android device, you lose the warranty provided by manufacturer.
In case, you want to get your device repaired at company’s showroom, then let me tell you that cannot claim the warranty there. The only way of doing so is by installing the stock firmware again. This process may be complex, but not for the Samsung device owners. If you also own a Samsung Android device, you can install official stock firmware on it using Odin. The process is very simple and you can do it easily by following this step by step guide.
Installing the Stock Firmware might make you loss data or any other serious damage to your device may be there. So proceed with the process at your own risk.
- Take the backup of data before proceeding with the process.
- Charge your Samsung Device’s battery to at least 60 percent mark.
- Make sure that Odin is installed on your PC. Download Odin v3.07 from this link.
Process to install Official Samsung Stock Firmware
- You need to have the file containing official firmware, the one that you wish to install. So download that file firstly.
- Once you download the file, simply extract it.
- Make sure that the files that you just extracted extension of .tar or .tar.md5. Also make sure Samsung Kies is not running in background.
- Switch off your Samsung device and enter it into the Download Mode. Now run the Odin on your computer.
- Look for ‘PDA’ button in Odin and click on the same. Select the .tar or .tar.md5 file. Yeah, the same that you got by extraction. Make sure that the file you select has ‘code’ name in it. This is the file that contains the official firmware that you wish to install.
- Connect your Samsung device with computer. On successful connection, one of the ‘ID:COM’ boxes, that lies in the Odin, will turn Yellow.
- Un-tick the “re-partition” option. Click on ‘Start’ to flash the official stock firmware.
Your input part is done. Your Samsung device will now restart. Once it happens, it will be running the official stock firmware on it. That’s all!!
