Important Note: Before Flashing a Stock Firmware

Backup all stored data in the device.  Though the process will not eventually delete the stored data but we are about to touch the inner system of the phone which is crucial on some part.  If anything might go wrong and it forces you to perform a full wipe factory reset your data will be wiped out. So to make all important data safe, don’t be lazy to make a backup in the first place.

Recharge your device battery –  A sudden power interruption will cause an undesired outcome.

Use a PC and the supplied USB data cable of your Galaxy S6 – Oftentimes a flashing fails is caused by a bad USB data cable.

Enable USB debugging mode – From Home screen, tap Apps > Settings > Developer option. Then mark USB Debugging checkbox.

Disable the Reactivation LOCK –  If this feature is enabled in the device, you must turn it off first. From Home screen, tap Apps > Settings > Security. Then unmark the Reactivation lock check box.

Turn On the OEM Unlocking –  If this feature is also enabled in the device, you must turn it on first. From the  Home screen, tap Apps > Settings > Developer option. Then toggle the selector switch to ON.

Grab the flash tools  – Only use Odin3_v3.10.6 and the latest USB driver as the older version has caused failure for no reason.
