Simply download these Two Files - ODIN Software and Original Firmware.

Follow Steps by step Procedure by iPad Repair Hong Kong to FLASH the Firmware of your Samsung Phone with Odin.

Warning: Please ensure that KIES is closed and not running in the system tray! Kies doesn't like Odin.

1. Just download the firmware version you want from the above link and extract the .tar or .tar.md5 file in the archive and save it somewhere.

2. Reboot your phone to download mode. To do so simply shut down the device. After it shuts down completely then Hold Down the Volume Down key+ Home button + press the power button.

You should see a warning asking you to press volume up if you want to continue or volume down to cancel, press volume up. You are now in download mode!

3. Open/Run/Start Odin.exe

4. Click on the PDA button and browse to the .tar or .tar.md5 file that you extracted in step 1
If the package has more than one .tar archive then they will be labelled with PDA, Phone/Modem and CSC. Just put them in the corresponding section of Odin

If the extracted firmware package has 3 files then it should look like this:

 Regardless of firmware version it's still the same methodology
6. Connect the USB cable and wait for the ID:COM section in Odin to turn yellow
7. Click start to flash
8. Do not disconnect the cable or turn off the device, it will reboot when it finishes. 

It will not wipe your phone if you flash as recommended by iPhone Repair Hong Kong

Note: Once completed your phone will work normally. If you see any Errors like "XXXX app FORCE Close Down" or some function is not working then no need to worry and simply fix it by resetting phone as suggested by Apple Mac Repair Hong Kong

Reset to Factory Settings by navigating to Settings>Privacy>Factory Data Reset. (This will Wipe of your apps, messages, settings etc so make backup first)
