The last time we brought you news of Mobile Odin, it was to deliver the good news that more—and newer—devices were supported. Developed by XDA Elite Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire, the firmware flasher was developed to give users an on-device option for flashing Samsung firmware. Typically, users would depend on the PC application Odin or the cross-platform application Heimdall by XDA Recognized Developer Benjamin Dobell to flash firmware.
The list of things it doesn’t do is rather short and includes flashing and formatting EFS and bootloaders. It also won’t make you bacon. Otherwise, the application can, with only a few exceptions, replace Heimall and Odin for many users completely.
In the newest update, more than a dozen devices gain support. Thankfully, Chainfire didn’t just focus on newer devices but also some older devices that had been waiting for support for quite some time. The list includes three of the four US Galaxy S III variants, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. The full list:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300T
– Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9308
– AT&T Galaxy S3 SGH-I747
– Canadia Galaxy S3 SGH-I747M
