    1. I have a question, if I input the PDA file before the OPS file, the message in the PDA rectangle goes back to NONE. Is that really the correct order of choosing the files? Please reply ASAP because I am contemplating on flashing my rom.

    2. yes. when you open Odin PDA selection button is not active. You can see only OPS button is active. So you must select Ops file first. Then only you need to select PDA file. That is the correct order.

    3. i m facing a problem that when I installed this recovery my cell phone keeps on rebooting to the recovery mode nothing more help me out

    4. What do i do if de Odin says that the PDA file image type is invalid?

    5. How long does this procedure normally take ??

    6. Installed cwm. phone keeps on going in recovery mode. Yes, i did get the PASS message in Odin. HELP!! have i bricked it?

    7. Hello to everyone. I have i9001 and i installed CWM6013-CM9-recovery non touch. BUT the power key isnt working. How can i flash working recovery plz ? Many thanks for advice 🙂

    8. How does the reset timeout option affect anything in Odin 4.43? Does it matter if I change the value to something other than 300 s?

    9. Why cant i see the ”added” msg ?? my drivers are fine!

    10. I rooted my phone months back. installed ics in it.
      one day by mistake i put it into recovery. now it is not comming out of recovery

    11. ok. my phone gets an “added” msg in odin v 1.85. there is no ops option. now?

    12. You don’t say – personally my thoughts regarding this blog post is somewhat thought provoking and the reason for that is I am using Odin 3.07. What I liked best in this blog post is My PDA Button is always in disabled state. The readers here conclude this is some issue when we use Odin 3.07 with Windows 8.1. Can you assist?.
