    Question can`t install firmware

    Hello Community,
    sorry for my bad english.
    At first I rooted my device.Than, I went to the CWM and removed the operating system from the device...That means, I removed all data from the Hard drive + operating system... I did`t know that this will happen... All things I did, were not intentionally...

    Now my Question: How can I install the operating system again.
    Info: nothing is on the device. Only the CWM...

    I hope you can help me...

    If you have removed download mode then you will have to go to a service centre to reinstall stock firmware.

    You can try installing a custom firmware from an external sd card, but you may not be able to access it without a firmware.

    Odin Mode or download mode is available. What could I do and how could I do that?

    If you can put the phone into Download mode then you can install firmware with Odin.
    Take a look here:

    You can reinstall the Firmware by the following steps


    Install the Samsung USB Drivers

    Most probably, you might already have Samsung USB drivers or Samsung Kies installed on your computer. But if you have not yet installed any of them, it’s high time to do it now. In case you have installed Samsung Kies, make sure the program is closed while you use Odin or flash the firmware or it might interfere with the procedure.

    Download Samsung USB Drivers or Latest Kies

    Backup Your Apps and Data

    Usually, flashing a firmware, rooting and installing a custom recovery leave your phone’s apps, data, and settings untouched. However, in some cases, it might get wiped. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you backup your apps, contacts, messages, photos, videos and any other important data stored on the internal storage of your phone or tablet. We have gathered together some useful backup apps that can help backup your device data easily.

    Download Odin Tool

    Now download the recommended Odin tool for flashing firmware on your Samsung device. As you know that there are several Odin versions available but considering the rate of success, you should use Odin3 v3.09 (for JellyBean and KitKat) or Odin3 v3.10.6 (for Lollipop).

    Download All Odin Versions

    Download the Firmware for Your Device

    Make sure to download the correct firmware for your Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet. Please note that a correct firmware is one that matches your device model and the country/region from where you purchased and using it. To do so, find out your device model by going to Settings> About device > Model Number and note it down. Next, you’ll need to find out the CSC code of your device. CSC codes are region and carrier/network operator specific.

    How to Find Region/CSC Code of Your Samsung Galaxy Device

    If your phone is not SIM-locked or carrier-branded, you can install any unbranded firmware that matches your device model regardless of CSC match. However, if your Galaxy device is carrier branded, you must install a firmware that matches your device’s CSC or it will be bricked.

    You download firmwares for all Samsung Galaxy device from here:

    sammobile.com/firmwares

    Reboot Your Galaxy Device into the Download Mode

    On most Android devices we need to get into the Bootloader/Fastboot mode to flash factory images or firmwares. Samsung Galaxy devices feature a Download Mode that prepares your device to receive data from your computer via a dedicated flashing tool called Odin. Here’s how you can boot your Samsung phone or tablet into the Download Mode. Turn off your device and then press and hold Volume Down + Home + Power buttons simultaneously for 2-3 seconds.

    download-mode-samsung

    When you see the warning screen with an exclamation sign, press the Volume Up key to enter Download/Odin mode:

    After pressing the Volume Up key, you device will get into the Odin mode and it simply means that you can proceed with installing your firmware, CF-Auto-Root or CWM/TWRP recovery file. Here is how Download mode screen on Samsung devices looks like:

    Please note that you can flash only with .tar or .tar.md5 extension using Odin.

    Install Stock Firmware on Samsung Galaxy Devices

    We assume that you have already downloaded the firmware for your Samsung device. If it is a zip file, extract it to get the firmware file with .tar.md5 extension. If you want to flash a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP, it might have either .tar or .tar.md5 extension.
    Download the latest Odin zip file (we use version 3.09) and extract the file on your PC. You will get the following files in the folder:
    Odin3 vx.xx.exe
    Odin3.ini
    Double-click the Odin3 vx.xx.exe file. This will open an Odin window.
    Now turn off your phone or tablet, and boot it into the Download Mode (see the method above).
    Connect your Samsung device to the computer using the USB cable provided by the OEM.
    As soon as you connect the device the ID: COM port on Odin will turn Blue or Yellow depending on the Odin version. You’ll also see “Added!!” message to indicate successful connection.Odin-connection
    In case your phone is not detected by Odin as shown above, try the following things:
    Reboot your phone and turn off USB Debugging and turn it on again.
    Uninstall and reinstall the Samsung USB Drivers or Kies.
    Reboot your PC and change the USB cable and ports in case the problem occurs even after installing the drivers.
    Try a different USB cable.
    Now click the AP button (in case if you are using Odin3 v3.09 or 3.10) or the PDA button (in case you are using an older version) on Odin.
    Navigate to the firmware or recovery file and select the file with .tar/.tar.md5 extension.flashing-firmware-with-odin-01
    In case you got a multi-file firmware with AP, BL, CP, CSC, and .PIT files, you must add the firmware components to corresponding slots in Odin like shown below. You can download the PIT file for your Samsung Galaxy here.odin-multifile-firmware-installation
    In the Options section, make sure that only the Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes are checked and everything else is unchecked. (Do not, in any case, check Re-Partition box unless you have a .PIT file to flash, or it will lead to major problems including a corrupt partition table, if you don’t know what you’re doing.)
    Before initiating firmware/recovery installation on Odin, compare all highlighted fields as shown in the above screenshot with your Odin screen.
    If everything looks okay, just click the Start button on Odin to start the installation with might take a few seconds (for CF-Root or recovery file) to 2-4 minutes (for firmwares).flashing-firmware-with-odin-02
    A successful Odin flash is indicated by PASS! or RESET! message on Odin and then your device will restart immediately after the process is completed.
    Note:

    If you encounter a FAIL! message instead of PASS!, remove the battery from the device and reinsert it, restart Odin (preferably a different version) and repeat the process once again carefully. If you want to diagnose the issue, take a look at the Odin log in the Message box.
