    What is Odin? Is there a link to download it? How do I open it?

    It's an .exe file that, in conjunction with other files, allows you to return your phone to 100% stock. It's a pain to copy/paste links from the AF app, but if you check on xda you can find the link for it (or I can provide it when I get home from work).

    Okay... i've started a thread for NOOB's like me that want to root and change ROMS but also want to know how to go back to stock. If possible do you think you could provide easy to understand directions...?

    I've found these directions but the link here to Odin is inactive... any elaboration on what this guy did would be awesome. [How To] Return to Stock / Fix Bricked Epic - xda-developers

    @Kelmar... please do put the link to Odin for the Epic. I have been searching and searching... found a few but the links don't work. Your help is appreciated.

    I downloaded the latest Odin... then tried to drag it to my SD card but it says that it is write protected and can't perform the function. Any advice?

    EDIT: I figured out how to remove the write protection... it's the lock slider on the adapter to the SD Card.

    Yes, a link to the stock rom would be great.

    ok, just got an epic and wanting to play around a bit with froyo but I cannot find a working link for the ODIN download. The only link i have been able to find goes to a non-existant page....the link here ( http://www.sdx-downloads.com/devs/noobnl/Odin3epic.rar ). Can somebody point me in the direction of a good link. Thanks

    That is where I found the dead link. Every post leads back to that same link. That's why I'm asking if somebody has a mirror or could send the zip to me

    Thank link doesn't work either...

    also, does someone have a link to Stock EB13 for the epic 4G? All the ones on XDA look to be cooked. I have the Epic4G_FroyoUpgrade_EB13_Tool.exe but not sure how to extract the file I would need to use in Odin to get back to stock EB13...

    Preciate it, I'll do the froyo one at work since it looks like it might take a little time...price we pay for free stuff!

    Thanks again. Before I starting rooting and adding roms I want to make sure I can get it back to stock.

    I am fairly new to this process. I have a rooted Samsung Epic. I'm unable to upgrade to Gingerbread until I get back to stock.

    It's my understanding that the easiest way to accomplish this is to use an application called Odin. It's not clear to me if I also need a stock ROM to use in conjuction with Odin.

    Will someone please post a functional link to the latest Odin with a stock froyo Epic ROM along with simple directions?

    Thanks.
