menu_default hide_default

Odin fail issue occurs specifically on Android devices as this software is used only by Android for flashing devices. It is also used for introducing custom firmware and ROMs. Some users enter Odin mode when they want to flash their phones, but some enter it accidentally.

Odin mode is also called Download mode and it occurs when you press Volume down, home and power button simultaneously. Odin mode is used when flashing the ROM on your device. When you get to the Odin mode screen, you will see two options, "Continue" on pressing the volume up button and "Cancel" on pressing the volume down button. On pressing Continue, you will be able to flash the device and on pressing Cancel, you can exit the Odin mode. But when you are not able to exit the Odin mode on pressing the volume down button, you will encounter the Odin fail issue.

As we said, many users have experienced this problem. Let's see one query that was asked by a user on online forums.
