This tutorial is for OS X and Linux users only! If you’re user of Windows, use this tutorial.

You need to download these files:

  1. JOdin3 r1035 for OS X/Linux/Windows: download
  2. Latest Heimdall driver for your OS: download (from official page)
  3. Latest version of ROM for Odin from our download page.
  4. Installed Java (on Mac you can simply install it from AppStore, if you’re Linux owner, Google how to install it on your distribution)

And then perform this steps:

  1. Install downloaded Heimdall drivers. After installation probably you will need to restart your computer.
  2. Unzip downloaded package with latest ROM (if it’s zipped). You should get file with *.tar.md5 extension
  3. Run JOdin3 using Java.
  4. In opened window, click on PDA button and select file with *.tar.md5 extension from previous step
  5. Make sure that only Auto Reboot is selected on the left side.
  6. Turn off your phone, and then use VOL- & HOME & POWER buttons combination.
  7. If you see Warning screen, use VOL+ button.
  8. You should see Android and some information.
  9. Connect phone to computer and make sure it is detected by JOdin (it will appear as COM device). If it doesn’t, try to use other USB port.
  10. Use Start button. JOdin will inform you that no PIT file was attached and ask if it should be downloaded itself. Agree for it. Wait until flash process will finish.
  11. Your phone will restart, but probably won’t boot. Pull down your battery and use VOL+ & HOME & POWER buttons combo to boot into recovery.
  12. Click on Wipe, then use slider on the bottom to let process begin.
  13. Click on Home icon, and then Reboot -> System.
  14. Wait for boot. Now you should have ROM installed and ready to use!

    Hi, I’m not getting the md5 file in the CyanogenMod zip file for the galaxy ace 2 4.4.4. Do I need to make one?
