    Hi,brothers.
    I have been using iphone, so I am beginner for a android.
    When i flash stock rom(with odin), will my whole data(installed apps, sms, pics,contacts) be removed?
    If not, my all data is live and only Android Os is updated?
    Please teach me clearly.

    Yes, because that's why it's a good idea to backup all your files so they won't get lost and can reinstalled them later. I'm not sure what you mean about the part only Android OS is updated
    Out of curiosity what device are you flashing with Odin?

    if you flash a stock ROM, you will lose photos, movies, SMS etc. that's why, as @KBU2 said, you need to have backups. You need to enable automatic backup and restore in settings, and install one of the SMS backup utilities from the Play Store.

    However, if you're installing an OTA (over the air) update from your carrier or the phone's OEM, then you shouldn't lose any data. But still make sure anything you don't want to lose is backed up.

    You want anything important to be backed up anyway. Phones can fail, they can be broken, they can be lost or stolen. If you don't have a backup that is not on the device you can lose the lot (copying to the SD card is not a backup, because if the phone is lost, stolen or dropped in the sea the card is gone too).

    In fact, I have trouble with my phone. Keyboard is not appearing on lock screen, so i can't type password, so i can't use my phone.
    in this case, if i flash stock rom, i can break my phone lock, but shall i lose my all data?

    As we've already said more tha once in this thread - YES you will lose your data. You MIGHT be able to recover some of your data by connecting your phone to a PC Via USB and using ADB/Fastboot commands. other than that, you might have some success using mobile digital forensics software. But unless you're comfortable using the terminal in Linux, you might want to try data recovery software

    And there's quite a few more, Google is your friend.

    @Davdi Thank you but I already understand the procedure, I just didn't feel like typing all of that down at the time but maybe you need to share this information with the OP considering that they're the one with the issue not me.

    @KBU2, I posted in this thread for @xhazhh87x, Just referencing you in passing.

    @Davdi Yeah You may have been but that also could have been constructed you sending me a message as if I didn't know what I was talking about, so as I said why use my name in your explanation for somebody else instead of just going directly to the source? I didn't see the point but I'm sure you found some satisfaction in going that route. Oh and by the way I'm just using your name in passing. Cheers
