    Thanks for the instruction.
    But my Odin is not recognizing my SGS in download mode.
    I’ve installed the “Samsung USB Driver.exe” on my PC and Kies wasn’t running.
    Also tried Debugging mode on/off.

    Any ideas? 🙁

      My guess is that one of the drivers isn’t installed correctly,
      Connect your device and check in Device Manager.
      If it is not recognized at all then you will have to use your recovery.
      If you see an unrecognized device then try to install the driver manually.

        I now tried it on a different PC with windows 7 on it.
        Worked after connecting and reconnecting it a couple of times.
        Thanks for the help 🙂

      I am a basic user… just purchased a replace SG3 on ebay and it came with cyanogenmod on it and am looking at removing it. On your instructions can you clarify … should I download the stock firmware on the phone or on my computer with the device plugged in.

      Currently when I go into settings on the phone… there is no “developer option” either so I am wondering if should proceed or if I will create more hassles for myself

        to enable ‘Developer options’ in your phone goto Settings > About phone and tap Build Number until you are a developer (about 7 times).

    Thanks for this guide. Previous guides did not list the need to factor wipe (so my devices was stuck on the samsung logo animation). Much appreciated

    Hello

    the ODIN is not recognizing my phone.
    i can confirm that the pc is seeing the phone.
    one more question, which firmware you mean here ?(Choose firmware file.tar as PDA)
    is their any firmware to download or its already built-in in the Odin3 v3.09

    Many thanks

    Great tutorial, it worked.
    AT first Idin did not recognizing my phone. I fixed that by installing “Samsung Drivers 1.5.14.0”.
    Good luck.

    I have an SGH-I747 that I bought used with CyanogenMod on it. Trying to take it back to stock firmware. I did all the steps including downloading the firmware for this exact phone from sammobile.com after putting in all information for the search, downloaded Odin 1.85 and followed the instructions to a tee and this is what I get in Odin:
    Added!!
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    Please wait..
    I747UCDLK3_I747ATTDLK3_I747UCDLK3_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
    Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
    Leave CS..
    Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
    File analysis..
    SetupConnection..
    Initialzation..
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..
    aboot.mbn
    NAND Write Start!!

    Complete(Write) operation failed.
    All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    On the phone it has this:
    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SGH-I747
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (1 counts)
    CURRENT BINARY: Custom
    SYSTEM STATUS: Official
    QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
    Warranty Bit: 1
    BOOTLOADER AP SWREV: 2
    SW REV CHECK FAIL : Fused 2 > Binary 8

    I’ve tried it at least 4 times using two different computers, one Win 7 and one Win 8. Can anyone give me an idea of what is stopping my progress? Thanks!

    I have 2 questions:

    1) Do I unzip/download the firmware to my computer or to my phone?
    2) I cannot book in download mode. Phone says “Android is upgrading” and the runs through all my apps. This happens EVERY time I try it.

    thanks

    I have a problem, ODIN downloads, but when I try to open it it says “the archive is either in an unknown format or damaged”. I tried to download it from elsewhere, but it was virused. Could you guys help me?

    Thank you for this.
    There were some moments where I thought the phone had stopped responding after following these instructions, but I just needed to be patient and wait and sure enough it moved on from the Samsung logo were it had sat for at least a minute.

    I am having the same problem as Fergy from August 14, 2014. I have an SGH-I747 that I bought from AT&T and since I have a new phone I thought I’d try CyanogenMod on my old S3. Now I’m trying to take it back to stock firmware, unless you recommend a better ROM. I did all the steps including downloading the firmware for this exact phone from sammobile.com, downloaded Odin 1.85, and followed your instructions and…
    This is what I get in Odin:
    Added!!
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    Please wait..

    I have tried several times on both Odin 1.85 and 3.09 I get a fail on both.
    Thank you for any help you can provide!
