    • Sanket

      You are welcome.

      • RobertM

        I have a similar problem. My exact model is s5830M. I have used it with several Roms. The latest was Severus V.5. Then swithed to CyanogenMod10 and my Phone went into an endless loop at the begining. It won’t go into recovery mode (normally i would use home+pwr+vol up) or be detected by any computer (already have tried in 3 computers with updated drivers) so there’s no way for me to go back to the original Rom or use Odin in any way. Only thing I can do is go into Download mode but since it wont be recognized by any computer i’m stuck. Please help

        • Sanket

          Try with Odin 4.38 and disable antivirus and kies software. Hope this will work.

        • RobertM

          No, didn’t work. Already used odin v. 1.85, 1,87, 3.07, 3.98 and 4.38. Neither of those even light up the yellow square indicating a phone is connected. All I get from Windows in any computer is that the pc doesn’t recognize the equipment(even I have all drivers installed)

        • Viraj SK

          Try performing the same with different PC.

          Use the drivers mentioned in this article: http://www.androidlegend.com/download-android-usb-drivers/

        • RobertM

          Still can’t connect to PC. I downloaded the drivers, tried in 3 different computers and always get the same message. “one of the usb devices linked to this computer did not work properly so Windows was unable to recognize it”. In Device manager it appears as “Unknown Device”.

    30 Minute Pass Phone Is Not working. What Do

    • Sanket

      Install Mobile drivers. Disable antivirus and kies. Then flash the firmware.

    • svdb

      You didnt get into The Downloading Mode, but the ARM DL-mode probably.

      You need to be sure you get a screen with Downloading… displayed in a yellow characters.

      Try the key combination again till you bootscreen shows in yellow Downloading, then connect your phone and then open S5830_Odin+Multi+Downloader+v4.38.exe

      Good luck!

  • asif

        • Viraj SK

          Is your phone booting? Are you able to see any blank screen or Samsung logo?

        • ankit mishra

          hey venkat. for entering downloading mode use vol up+vol down+power button and for recovery mode use

    Viraj SK
    First thank you for a complete tutorial. I came from iPhone to Galaxy and I must say that there are also many helpful people here.
    I bought a branded phone for Canada (GT-S5830D) and the reason why I would like to flash it is that I need the operating system to be in English and Spanish. Does this firmware for India have Spanish?
    If not, please advice what software you would install. Thanks, Asana
