A. Single file only - This firmware comes in a single packed  mostly on recent updates that is fulled from official Samsung Kies firmware server. The PDA,MODEM and CSC file are in one single packaged.
Once you extracted this file, you''ll find a .tar.md5 file extension to it.

C) Multiple files with Pit included - This is a full flashing method, this is only advisable and useful for reverting back to original firmware when previously installed unofficial ROM or to fix softbricked devices like unable to boot normally. (I am using this method in my shop to fix bricked devices. Be aware that hard bricked or such already dead boot jammed devices cannot be recovered by Odin, I'm using a JTAG force flashing with another tool) So, don't ever messed your device for its hard to recover it)

The same as the multiple file step above but this time you need to load the pit file.
Click the Pit button and load the Q1-20110914_16GB.pit then the PDA, MODEM and CSC files. If the bootloader file is also included load it on the BOOTLOADER button.

  1. Hi,

    I think I got my samsung galaxy note dead while trying to flash unofficial Lightening Flash ROM for overclocking. The phone does not boot anymore, its Blank, it does not show anything when I try to power on it or charge it. I want to know if I can revert it back to original firmware using ODin3 ? I have already downloaded firmware N7000XXKK3_N7000ODDKK1_N7000DDKJ3_HOME.tar and Keis on my system. Which mechanism out of above a, b or c options would suit us ?

    Please help, I hope it does not have to be through JTAG cable, as I dont know how to do that :(

    Regards

    Sheraz

  2. If you're still able to set your device into download mode then you can still fix it. Use a full packaged ROM with PDA PHone and CSC.
    If download seems will not tend to work anymore, try to use a download mode jig.
    The only chance you have if you can still put the device in download mode, but if not - JTAG flashing will only recover the device

  3. cellulartech.ca says as KC and KIM suggested if your device is still can boot in download mode you do not need jtag service. just flash with stock rom file
