  1. Hello, thank you for this post. I have been carefully following each step you wrote on this page, however when I reach “5. Flash TWRP File using ODIN,” particularly during launching Odin.

    While it’s true that the Odin app on my PC shows an “Added” message just like what the message section showed in this blog, but the Buttons on the right are different.

    Instead of showing “Bootloader”, “PDA”, “Phone”, “CSC”, “UMS”
    mine shows “BL,” “AP, “CSC,” “Userdata” (like the image shown in point ‘4. Flash Samsung Galaxy A80 firmware files along with Vbmeta Disabled using ODIN’ right after “Repeat the above Steps”)

    Are they the same thing (only with different abbreviations?) I’m hesitating to proceed because I do not want to risk going wrong and causing more damage.

    Your response will be truly appreciated, thank you very much
