If you are into rooting for a while and own a Samsung device then you may have heard a name called Odin. For the folks who don’t know about it, it is a simple tool developed by Samsung to flash software update image to a Samsung Android device and it is used to unbrick Samsung devices as well. This tool is designed to work with Samsung devices and it doesn’t support any other smartphone belonging to some other OEM. Originally the software is limited to Windows OS, it is compatible with the fresh Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, etc. From the brand, there is no support for Mac OS. A third party method is also there with which you can use this utility on your Mac OS running PC as well.
The biggest merit of using Odin over other tools is that it comes in a portable form which means there is no need to install it, you just have to double-click on the “.exe” file and the software will start. It is simple and low in memory. So if you are willing to use it but can’t find a method to download and install it then you are at the right destination.
In our today’s article, we will be telling you how you can install Odin on PC and even on a Mac OS based system. It is worth noting that different version of Odin support different Android version so we will suggest you to install the app versions considering your device. Odin is not officially available on Mac as we have discussed above due to compatibility issues but there are some third-party ways to run it which we will discuss later.
