Odin is a software developed by Samsung to be able to update the mobile firmware without any fuss and for flashing their devices in a simple few steps process. Odin is the internal tool which the Samsung tool utilizes for flashing firmware to its android devices and also performs the re-partition of storage present in the Samsung’s android smartphones. The software itself can be downloaded on Windows OS very easily and flashing ROMs and re-partition all these process does not require anything more than the software and USB drivers for the mobile phone. As we know the Android is a very popular mobile phone operating system and this OS allows free working on it as it is an open source. But to gain all the advantages of it being an open source, the android must be rooted to customize it according to our own will. And since rooting process may be bit complex for other manufacturers but Samsung has made it pretty easy by their Odin software.
Samsung’s android flashing software Odin gets its latest release of version 3.10 and it supports ROM flashing, install custom ROMs on devices and install the most suitable ROM for suitable devices. The new Odin 3.10 also comes with some entirely new features like the Binary size feature and the AutoStart feature. This new release of Odin is tested on many Samsung devices like Galaxy Note, Galaxy S4 and S5 and the release is found to be stabilized and is free from all bugs and the errors. The only weak point for this new Odin 3.10 is that it still can be used only on the Windows powered systems and does not support the Mac systems still.
