- Turn off the A3 device and reboot it in the download mode — Volume Down + Home + Power buttons.
- Connect it to the computer after reading the display and pressing the Volume Up button.
- Check the ID: COM port from the Odin user-interface is lighting up with a color. No color means your drivers are not yet working and you need to fix that. Any other problem you have should be solved by downloading a different version of Odin and trying again.
- Click the AP or PDA button, depending on your Odin user-interface button.
- Browse the desktop of your computer for the A3 CF-Root file.
- Once you have uploaded the file in Odin, click the Start button without adjusting any of Odin’s default settings.
- Wait up to 15 minutes for a pass message and the device should then reboot automatically.
