Flash Firmware on Samsung Devices Directly with Mobile ODIN Lite and EverRoot

You can download Mobile Odin to flash firmware on Samsung Galaxy devices directly without a computer. We already know of Odin and JOdin that allow you to flash Samsung firmware. These two tools only work on a computer and there is no other way to flash a custom firmware directly from the phone. This is where Mobile Odin comes in. This is a root app that comes in two flavours, a free version and a paid version with EverRoot support.

Mobile ODIN allows you to install / flash firmware on Samsung devices directly from your Android phone without the need of a PC. It is the on-device firmware flasher of choice and with the Pro version, you can even root the firmware while installation with EverRoot. Just throw the firmware files on your (internal or external) SD card, start Mobile ODIN and flash away. No extra tools, devices or USB drivers required. Just make sure this software requires your Android phone to be rooted from before.

Mobile Odin

Odin is the popular tool to flash official software updates, custom ROMs and leaked firmware for various Samsung devices. Samsung KIES / Smart Switch does the same for just official updates and firmware along with some other features of syncing data and transferring photos / videos to your computer. Mobile ODIN provides full firmware flashing for supported devices.

Mobile ODIN is available in two versions: Mobile ODIN Lite and Mobile ODIN Pro. The Lite version is available for free on XDA-Developers (download link given below), whereas Mobile ODIN Pro is the paid version which is available for $5 on Google Play Store. This app is developed by Chainfire, the developer behind the famous CF-Auto-Root tool.

Mobile ODIN – Features:

  • Flashing with Mobile ODIN is easy. You start off by starting the app. The app will check your system has everything the app needs to continue (like root). It may need to download an additional package, so it is advised you have Wi-Fi available.
  • From the desktop ODIN you may be used to “PDA”, “PHONE”, and “CSC” buttons. All three of these buttons have been replaced by the “Open file …” button. This button will open the file you select from the SD card, and find all the partitions it can flash inside that file. So if you select a .tar file containing kernel and modem, the Kernel and Modem partitions will be set up to use that .tar file for flashing.

As you can see, recent Samsung Galaxy devices are not supported by Mobile Odin. This app only works with older phones. For recent models with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, Android 9.0 Pie or even Android 10, you need to have the latest Odin 3.14.1, or else you can’t flash firmware.
