  9. There’s no need to adjust any of the default settings in Odin; just press the Start button and it will now root and flash that custom recovery on your device.
  10. After some minutes your device will automatically reboot since we have the Auto Reboot box checked in Odin. In addition to the reboot, you should see Odin give you a ‘pass’ message on the display, letting you know that everything went swell.
