    How to use Mobile Odin

    Step 1 is acquiring it, you can do this one of two ways. by grabbing the free version here or buying it for 5 bucks on the play store. If you use teh free version youll also need to install another addon apk, the one we want is found here you need the R530-v2.0 one :)

    so youve got it installed? great load it up and scroll down to the file you want to flash (in this guide ill be showing you how to flash a full tar) so go down to that one.

    [​IMG]

    click on open file and select the tar you wish to flash. it will then prompt you that it has filled the slots for you. go and tap on recovery and data and clear them.

    Some people have had their sdcards wiped by wiping data, use at your own risk

    From there scroll down and choose wipe data and dalvik (this will not wipe your internal sdcard), and wipe cache as well. from here you need to select your extra options:

    [​IMG]

    everroot injects root into teh flashing file so that you get root from the get go. injecting supersu and mobile odin allows you to have tools should you need them as soon as you boot :)

    Now all thats left is to click flash (it will prompt to do md5 sum checking, im lazy and never bother to, YMMV) it will boot into a special recovery mode and flash everything :)

    The only difference between the two is the extra file to download and install. Read the instructions for the extra file. It is known. Lol

    ive bought the paid version and never had lite version so cant really say whats the difference but the steps are easy to follow please make sure ya select recovery once ya load the tar and press clear that way mobile odin dont replace your custom recovery with stock recovery.

    to get all the options you will need to have get the pro version however. regardless if you make sure to not flash recovery then you can easily root again.

    pro version lets you keep root and injects itself into the tar so when u flash you will still have root and mobile odin installed :D

    Since the wipe data and cache option is greyed out, what can we do? Just flash anyway and hope it doesnt cause force closes from not wiping data? Also what method do we use to reroot? Thanks

    Basically now you just follow shabby instructions and check the options he writes you have to check...in his screens hits some options have not been checked that need to be checked i think so carefully read instructions
