If your Samsung phone is stuck in Odin mode, there is really not much you can do from the available options on your screen to bring your phone back to the normal state. Getting stuck in the mode means either you flash a firmware or wait for the phone to automatically come back to the normal mode.

If that has not happened and you are waiting for a long time, you may want to do something about it, so the phone stuck in Odin mode is no longer the case with you. There are a few methods you can use to get your stuck phone out of Odin mode and use the phone normally as you would do. The following guide covers multiple ways to resolve the Odin mode stuck issue on your Samsung phone.

Part 1. What Is Odin Mode on Samsung Phones?

If your phone is stuck in the Odin mode but you have no idea what this mode is, this section will tell you about it. Odin mode, also known as Download mode, allows you to flash various kinds of files including custom ROMs, stock ROMs, and custom kernels on your Samsung device.

When you use the Odin app on your computer to flash a firmware, you are required to put your phone into the Download mode for it to be recognized by the app on your computer. All the Samsung phones come with the Download mode, so you can try out new developments on your device.

Part 2. One Click to Exit Odin Mode on Samsung Phones for Free

Since your stuck phone will not recognize any of your touches on the screen, you may want to use a third-party software to exit the Odin mode on your Samsung device.
