Samsung Odin Options

When you first start Samsung Odin, you'll be greeted by the Odin window, which includes buttons for BL, AP, CP, CSC, UserData, and PIT. If you are unfamiliar with these words, I have clarified them below for your convenience.

Auto Reboot: Odin's Auto Reboot option is supported by default. If you're going to flash the stock firmware, keep it that way. However, since most Samsung devices have bootloader encryption, you'll need to disable "Auto Reboot" before flashing TWRP or any custom recovery.

Nand Erase: If you choose this choice in Odin, everything on your Samsung computer will be erased, including the operating system and all files. You'll end up turning your computer into an expensive paperweight if you don't know what to do after performing a 'Nand Erase.'

Re-Partition: Just check this box if you're flashing a Samsung PIT file alongside the firmware. When you enable ‘Re-Partition,' your Samsung computer will be re-partitioned to its default state. If you don't know what partitioning is, don't use this option.

F Reset Time: Choose this option only if you want to reset your device's firmware flashing timer.

BP: This stands for Bootloader, and as the name implies, it's used to flash bootloader files with the.tar or.tar.md5 extension.

AP: This option was known as PDA in older versions of Odin and was used to flash single-file firmware, recovery, and CF-Root files. AP stands for ‘Android Processor' in its full form.

CP: This stands for 'Core Processor,' and it's used to flash the Modem file included in the Samsung firmware binaries kit. In previous versions of Odin, this alternative was referred to as phone.

CSC: This stands for ‘Consumer Software Customization' or ‘Country Specific Code' in its full form. Samsung firmware has a CSC component that is unique to network providers and geographical regions. In other words, it includes customizations such as geographic location, APN settings, carrier branding, and more. Find out more about the Samsung CSC and the Home CSC.

PIT: This stands for Partition Information Table, and it includes data such as system storage partition tables, partition names, block sizes, block counts, and other technical information. A different PIT file is associated with each unit. PIT files can only be flashed if the partition table configuration on the computer has been compromised for some reason.
