Odin on VirtualBox

11.08.2011 by Dirk Olmes

I flashed an Adroid update earlier today. This was done from Windows using Odin and it worked like a charm.

This approach requires me to boot into Windows, though which is quite an interrupt in the daily procedure. So I thought I’d give Odin on Windows running in a VirtualBox a try. After some fuzzing around I was able to flash the same update again. Here’s the steps I used to prepare my VirtualBox:

  • download the Windows drivers for Samsung Galaxy S (e.g. from Softpedia) and install
  • shut down Windows
  • connect the Samsung Galaxy via USB
  • in the VirtualBox Manager define an USB filter
    VBox USB settings
  • power up VirtualBox and use Odin to flash
