Most Android devices are Samsung and those who like it modding your terminal knows that it cannot do without Odin. Unfortunately, Odin only works on Windows operating systems, a big limit for all Linux and Mac users who need to find different alternatives. Finally, however, the solution also arrives for these users and we talk about JOdin3, a tool in java and open source based on Odin and Heimdall that works thanks to CASUALcore, LibPit and Heimdall, and therefore allows you to use Odin on Mac and Linux
Using JOdin3 is like using Odin, however you need to use a file PIT which should be recognized automatically by connecting the device to the PC and this will require a reboot of the terminal, but the application will guide you.
As for the drivers, on Windows they should be installed automatically (otherwise it is recommended to install Kies), on Mac it will automatically install Heimdall and the same on Linux Debian distributions, while for all other distributions will be shown on-screen instructions .
For more information, you can consult the Heimdall site, while for Windows just install
these drivers (link unreachable) by accessing the device in download mode
To learn more, you can instead consult the site of the developers, casual-dev
Heimdall states that users have been successful in flash their Samsung devices, however on their site they only report the devices tested by them:
- GT-I9100 [T]
I would like to point out that this article is only informative, it is not a guide. The procedure may vary. See the various links in the article for more information.
If you decide to use JOdin3, let us know your experience!
