  • If the Odin logs are stuck at NAND Write for more than a minute or two, you can assume that there is something wrong with NAND Write that needs to be fixed. Make sure that OEM Unlocking is enabled, Use Odin version 3.13.1, try again above Process again. Read MoreFixing Nand write start fail

Download Country/Carrier Based Stock Rom
