    You're welcome.
    When you come to installing an update either use SmartSwitch or determine the firmware that you have by installing the Phone INFO Samsung app that I linked to.

    A network firmware will need a PIT file installing as well as the system partition is not big enough to take the added bloatware.

    This is quite often a USB cable problem.
    You must use an original quality USB cable and not a thinner charging cable.

    Also try a different USB port on your pc and do not connect through a USB hub.

    If not that, can you post a link to the firmware you are trying to install.

    Hi Greenman,
    i'm having problems when installing a firmware on my samsung galaxy s3 mini GT-I8200L, latin america,
    I downloaded the firmware "I8190LUBAMG5_I8190LTFGAMG2_I8190LUBAMG5_HOME.tar. md5" because it was the one I found at first and I'm getting an "Odin FAILURE" whe installing it, could it be the problem? Thanks for your help.

    This is Odin's message:
