Rock and roll! Been waiting for Mobile Odin to work on my Boost Mobile S2 E4GT. Thanks for all your hard work.
Any idea why market unlocker isnt working on rooted devices...
I'm new to androids what exactly does a root do. On iPhones you can customize your phone thru cydia what is the purpose of rooting
For those of you that have used mobile Odin: does it work just add well as the desktop version, or are there bugs? My laptop had been on the fritz lately and I'm looking for an alternative.
+Blake Maddox rooting is getting access to the user 'root' (often via the su command), which is usually the only account with direct hardware access and all possible privileges when running or installing programs. (Not just Android (Java) apps,but actual Linux programs running beneath/outside the Java Virtual Machine.) Many customizations within the VM may not need root access at all, such as changing the launcher or lockscreen, but you will need root to change the filesystem or flash a different rom/firmware to it.
Henrick Dannielsson but the only reason for s new firmware would be if your phone is out dated correct?
+Curtis Bond it works just as well, there are some things that make it superior, and others that are limitations. I recommend you give it a try.
Bought it some time ago even though it was free on xda at the time. I don't mind buying useful apps that get updated often. I've used it on several phones.
I got tired of playing with buggy custom roms and prefer flashing stock images from samfirmware, so this comes in handy.
+Blake Maddox if you root you have access to do things that are blocked by the Service carriers like tethering Wi-Fi and ad blocking, and uninstalling any annoying program like that snoopware called Facebook. My favorite rooting thing is the ad blocker.
Meaning I can flash my Note 2 with Odin now, or still just for back to stock after unlock?
+Brian Williams is there any customizing available like when you jailbreak the iphone like changing your battery to a bullet and things of that sort. And I've found it to be extremely hard to find specific information according to my specific phone samsung galaxy s3
+Blake Maddox tons of it. there are wibsites that will list the best "ROMS" to modify the look and complete user interface
When I downloaded the other day I got the new version and although I have so far only flashed files it seems to work great. I am a noobie trying to learn more about android O/S is there a guide to mobile ODIN anywhere so that I can explore what all the other tools do - my experience so far is that android is not a system where you can just click things to find out what they do! I do really appreciate the help given on XDA dev forums, though as with most forums it can sometimes be difficult find everything in one place - information on CF Root is really good (though not easy to find if you were searching in the Galaxy S3 forum. I will have a look for mobile ODIN there to see what I can find
+Blake Maddox note that there are many variations of the S3. There are carrier specific ones for the US and some other countries, the international and carrier-free ones like the one I've got, 3G/4G versions etc. You need to look up the specific version you have to know which root method to use, and possibly which ROMs are compatible with it. I don't consider my S3 firmware outdated and I haven't rooted. But I have been thinking about it since it does allow me to uninstall some Samsung crapware I don't use and it would also allow me to alter an XML file on the system to remove the limitation where you can only merge up to 5 contacts. That one really annoys me because it's inconvenient and a purely artificial limitation. :(
Poderia dar suporte ao S5830B...
how do you removie supersu i cant access my phone how do i remove it on my phone it say "firmware upgrade encounterd an issue please select recovery mode in kies and try again" so what should i do
Hey chainfire, what do you need to support the Japanese galaxy s3( SC-06D)?
funny I've had this since it was released in the market, but never used it! Feel comfortable flashing via cwm recovery. But hey, sooner or later I'm going to the this :) I think I have it because I want to support as much as I could all this dev's work.
I purchased and installed mobile odin and it works just fine however I can only start it by going to the app store and running from there as the icon has dissapeared (yes it has been rebooted many times since install). On the store there is oddly no uninstall option (otherwise I would just uninstall and re-install) I can run another install from the web but this just gives a phone error "app is already installed" - is there any way of getting the icon so I can put it in my folder of root apps. EDIT since found that when I copied it to a folder it appears to have moved it rather than copied as it isn't in the application drawer - however I do have it )
Didn't work on my galaxy note :-( can't change room
Ok it is perfect
thankful for all friend
In galaxy tab 7 plus, everroot and wipe doesn't work. Make my tab bootloop when downgrading
Any idea when support for the AT&T Galaxy S4 will be available?
