Few Tips for Odin
Odin is primarily used to install firmware on Samsung’s Galaxy devices. As I said above, with it you can also root or install TWRP recovery on Samsung devices. Here are few things you should know about Odin before using it.
Auto Reboot Option
When you don’t need to restart the device right after flashing the firmware then uncheck the Auto Reboot box.
Normally, don’t use PIT file. It has to be used in rare circumstances, like when your device is unable to boot and got its partitions corrupted because of flashing of wrong firmware or anything. When using PIT file, check the Repartition box.
Fix Wi-Fi Issues
Odin can be used to flash non-hlos.bin file directly to phone. These are modem files that have come as a fix for Wi-Fi disconnection on some devices.
The AP tab can use the full firmware when only one .tar is extracted from the firmware. However, if you get more than one .tar files, then use file whose name begins with AP prefix in the AP tab
The BL tab is for the file whose name begins with BL prefix. BL stands for bootloader.
The CP tab uses the file whose name begins with CP prefix.
The CSC tab uses the file whose name begins with CSC prefix. Such files include region-wise APN details and such.
