Difference between Normal Odin and Patched Odin
The difference between the normal and patched Odin is the fact that the normal Odin tends to perform a few additional checks on the firmware as well as the device and its carrier before allowing you to flash the firmware. On the other hand, the patched Odin does no such checks. So isn’t it a good thing for the checks to be carried out beforehand? Well, not in every scenario.
In some instances, the tool might raise a false flag and fail the test even if you are using the correct device and the right firmware. As a result of this, you will not be able to flash any firmware and would instead be greeted with error messages like “FAIL! Model mismatch fail”, “FAIL! SHA256 is invalid”, or “FAIL! Blocked carrier”. So to overcome these issues, the patched Odin does not check for the model, carrier, and SHA256 and hence you will have to deal with the aforementioned errors.
