Mobile ODIN Updated for the Samsung Galaxy S III I9300
Back in November of last year, we took a quick look at Mobile ODIN by XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire. Later in February of this year, the app was updated to version 2.0, which added an impressive number of supported devices. Now, the app has been updated once more to support even more devices, including the device that is seemingly on everybody’s mind—the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300.
For the uninitiated, Mobile ODIN does as its name implies and serves as an on-device ODIN utility. It allows users to fully flash their firmware straight from the device itself—practically removing the need to connect your device to a host computer. Due to safety reasons, however, the EFS and bootloader partitions are not flashed. Just as before, two versions are available: a lite version that is available exclusively on XDA, and a pro version that can be found on the Android Market.
In the words of the developer:
New in v2.10:
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus GT-P6200
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi GT-P6210
New in v2.15:
– Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9003L
– Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100G
New in v2.35:

– Samsung Galaxy S2 SC-02C
New in v2.40:
– Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100M
– Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300
New in v2.45:

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
