  6. The last step is to click the Start button in the Odin3 Flash tool to start the flashing process, and as soon as the flashing process is complete, you will see a "Pass!" message in Flash Tool and your device will automatically boot into normal mode after the flashing process is complete.
If your firmware file contains only one "AP or PDA" file, then you need to load this file in the AP section of the Odin3 Flash Tool. And if you have four or five files in your device's firmware file then load the bootloader file in the "BL" option, AP, or PDA file in the "AP" option, phone, CP file in CP option, CSC or CSC_Home in the CSC option and the user data file in the USERDATA.
