Mobile ODIN 4.20 Brings Support for Several Galaxy S5 Variants
We last talked about XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire‘s Mobile ODIN back in January with the launch of version 4. For those who don’t recall, v4 brought quite a few new features such as the ability to flash modem images and support for several new Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 3 variants. Now, version 4.20 is here, and it packs a few goodies–no, not THAT.
Mobile ODIN v4.20, which went live yesterday afternoon, packs two new features. First off, the injected SuperSU has been updated to version 1.94. In addition, v4.20 brings support for nine Galaxy S5 variants:
- International SM-G900F
- Oceania SM-G900I
- Korea SM-G900L
- Middle and South America SM-G900M
- Sprint SM-G900P
- US Cellular SM-G900R4
- T-Mobile US SM-G900T
- Metro PCS SM-G900T1
- Canadia SM-G900W8
If you’ve got one of the Galaxy S5 variants listed above and would like to flash ODIN-compatible images on the fly, head over to the application thread and give Mobile ODIN a shot. More info can also be found in Chainfire’s Google+ release notes.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
