I wanted to share something I discovered on this phone while turning it on and holding the vol.down or up button with the power button on the phone. It started saying something about a custom OS. and odin mode. Idk what it means, and I hope it works on others phones, or if everyone knows this.. Just a discovery that might help progress for the root exploit on this phone.

You are accessing the odin initiation thingie.

Odin is used to flash samsung phones and restore to stock. Also used to edit some other stuff.
