Here is a simple Step By Step guide explaining How to Install Stock Firmware on any Samsung Phone using Odin flashing tool.
This guide will only be helpful if you have a stock Firmware Image already downloaded with .tar or .tar.md5 extension.
If you have a ROM file with .zip file extension then you have to flash the ROM zip file for your Samsung Phone using a Custom Recovery such as a TWRP recovery or a Red Wolf Recovery etc. and this guide will NOT WORK for you.
If you are a beginner to these things like the Stock Firmware image or Odin then I will tell you in simple words that the Odin is a flashing utility provided by Samsung itself to flash Samsung Firmware.
Here we are going to use Odin to flash the Stock Samsung Firmware on a Samsung phone or tablet.
Manually upgrading a firmware requires patience and a little bit of technical knowledge. Flashing a new Firmware will delete all the data on your Samsung Phone/Tablet. Before proceeding further you may consider backup your all data. Also understand that YOU are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
Before proceeding to flash a new Stock Firmware on your Samsung Phone if you want to take a backup of your current data then please follow the link for how to backup all the data on your Samsung android Phone:
