  3. When Odin opens, click on the PDA button and select Stock Firmware file that you extracted in the previous steps to your computer. Make sure you do not choose the archived stock firmware or it will not work.
  4. Uncheck the option that says Repartition in the Odin. It may cause issues in the procedure.

  1. Hi, does this tutorial work for Samsung S5 mini Duos? Because AFAIK there’s 2 variants for the Samsung S5 Mini, one is for single sim and the other is for dual sim. I have dual sim phone and it has Kitkat rooted firmware on it. Now I want to unroot it so I can update to Lollipop. I’m sorry. I’m so noob with regard to this matter. I hope you can help me out with this one. Thanks! I really want to try your tutorial but I’m hesitant because it doesn’t say duos on your description but you have the model number SM-G800H so I’m a bit confused. Please help me out with this one. Thanks!
