7. Unzip and open up Odin3 v3.10.6.exe.

8. You should see a blue box on the left side of Odin that reads something similar to "0:[COM15]", if you don't then download and install Samsung USB drivers

9. In Odin click on "AP", locate and select the md5 file you unzipped in step 6. Odin may show "Not Responding", just wait!

10. Click on "Start" and wait until the process is over. This can take up to 15 minutes so be patient!! (If you get "FAIL!" check the FAQ sections at the bottom of the article).

11. Once the process is completed you will see "PASS!" and your phone will automatically reboot. Your phone can take up to 10 minutes to fully boot up the first time, be patient!

16. You are now done! You have successfully restored your Galaxy S6/S6 Edge back to complete stock. Your phone is now safe enough to send back to Samsung/carrier without them having any of your personal information or knowing you ever rooted your phone.


Q: Odin says "There is no PIT partition".

A: Wait at least 15 minutes and if you are still stuck on the Samsung logo then follow steps 12-14.
