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 SHW-M250K
– Samsung Galaxy S2 SC-02C

New in v2.40:
– Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100M
- Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300

New in v2.45:
– Samsung Galaxy S2 SCH-R760 (US Cellular)

Head over to the original thread to put your ORD to work!

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
