Mobile ODIN Updated to 2.0, Supports Many More Devices

Back in November, we took a peek at Mobile ODIN by XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer Chainfire. For those who don’t remember, the app acts as an on-device ODIN utility by allowing you to fully flash your 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.

Mobile ODIN has now undergone a major update to version 2.0—adding compatibility for several new devices and variants, while updating flashkernels for already supported devices. 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:

The following devices have been added (see changelog for full list):
– Samsung/Google Galaxy Nexus, GSM and CDMA/LTE variants
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7″, 3G and Wi-Fi variants
– Samsung Galaxy 5, eight different models

The following variants have been added:
– Samsung Galaxy Note: I9220 variant added
– Samsung Galaxy S2: SHW-M250S variant added

The following devices have been updated and have new flashkernels:
– Samsung Galaxy S
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ (the original 7″ tab)
– Samsung Galaxy S2 (2 models)
– Samsung Galaxy Note (2 models)

Those interested in getting started with Chainfire’s latest offering should proceed to the application thread.

Even if your device is currently unsupported, there is a good chance that the next major revision will add support—just be sure to share the resultant application dump and your device’s PIT file in the thread.
