Steps For Galaxy S8 & S8+

Compatibility

This guide is compatible only with the Galaxy S8 mobiles. Don’t try to use this on any other Android device.

Steps:

  • Make sure you have installed the correct Android 9 Pie firmware file from the download section.
  • Then successfully install Samsung USB driver first of all. Double-tap the .exe file of drivers to start the installation. (Not necessary if you have already done this.)
  • Then, download Odin PC software (new version).
  • Then extract the firmware file now. You can also use free software such as 7-zip for this. Then install 7-zip, then right tap on firmware file, and at the bottom of 7-zip, choose ‘Extract here’. then you’ll receive a file in .tar.md5 format now. Now we’ll be loading this file into Odin, to be installed on the device.
  • Then successfully Extract the Odin file. You should receive the Odin exe file.
  • Then boot your device into download mode:
    • Switch off your device. Wait a while until the screen goes off.
    • Now hit and hold the three buttons Volume down + Home + Power simultaneously until you view the Warning screen.
    • Hit Volume Up to continue to download mode.
  • Double-tap on Odin .exe file to successfully open the Odin window. You must be careful with Odin, and as said to fix issues.
Further;
  • Now plug your device via USB cable. Odin can easily recognize your device. When it successfully recognizes, you will then view Added!! message appearing in the Log box in the under left, and the first box at the bottom of ID:COM will display a no. and changes its background blue.
    • You can’t proceed further until you’ll get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has successfully recognized your device.
    • If you don’t receive the Added!! message, you want to install/re-install drivers again, and then use the real cable that came with the device. Some drivers create issues (look at step 2 above).
    • You can also try various USB ports on your computer too.
  • Now successfully load the firmware file into Odin. Then tap the AP button on Odin and then choose the .tar.md5 file from above. Then load the firmware files(s) on your mobile. As it depends on the number of files you got in step 4 after extracting the firmware .zip file.
    • Tap on the BL tab, and choose the file starting with BL text.
    • Then tap on the AP tab, and pick the file initiating with AP text.
    • Tap on the CP tab, and choose the file starting with the CP text.
    • [Different!] Tap on the CSC tab, and choose the file beginning with HOME_CSC text. If the HOME_CSC file is unavailable, then choose the file starting with CSC text.
CSC file:
      • With the help of the HOME_CSC file can’t reset your device, and data on the mobile shouldn’t be removed. However, when we choose a regular CSC file, and it results in CSC on the device that is quite different than in the CSC file. Then your mobile will be automatically formatted. You can also select to skip loading the CSC file. But if it doesn’t work out, repeat the entire process and choose the CSC file this time around.
Note:
  • After you load files, Odin analyzes the md5 of the firmware file. As it takes time. So, simply wait until that’s done and the firmware file is loaded. Don’t fret if Odin gets unresponsive for a while, it becomes normal. Binary size will also display in Odin.
  • Tap on the Options tab, and ensure the Re-partition checkbox is NOT selected. Also, don’t try to use the PIT tab, ever. Move back to the Log tab now, as it will display the firmware installation progress when you press the start button in the other step.
  • Then verify that everything is perfect as mentioned above. When you satisfied, tap the Start button on Odin now to initiate flashing the firmware on your device. Wait until the installation is completed. Then your device will automatically reboot. You’ll receive a PASS message about successful installation from Odin.

Errors:

Some errors you encounter and their solution.

  • If Odin stuck at setup connection, then you want to do this all again. Unplug your device, quite Odin. Then boot your device in download mode. You can then open Odin, and then choose the file and flash it again as said earlier.
  • If you receive the message FAIL in the top left box, then you want to flash the file as mentioned above.

That’s all about it. Let the device restart automatically.
