Prepare things  as follows

- Use a PC or laptop that runs in Windows OS, with a good and perfectly working USB serial port.
- Use the USB cable wire for your Galaxy S4 Mini.
- Make sure that your Galaxy S4 Mini battery is fully charge.
- Back up all important files stored from your phone’s internal memory – contacts, messages, etc.
- Remember or back up the APN settings of your device if you flashed the other country firmware.
- Enable USB debugging from your phone’s settings. Go to Settings > About Phone > and then tap the build number for around seven times until it says you are now a developer.
- Do a “Hard Reset” if you have a lot of 3rd party applications installed from your phone, this is useful to gain a smooth flashing. (Just make sure that you already back up all your important files before resetting your device.

Extract or unzip the downloaded stock firmware

You need to unzip the downloaded file so that you’ll get the Odin flashable .tar.md5 file. You may use Winzip, winrar, 7zip or any extracting tool you had in your computer.

Run and Configure Odin

Run Odin downloader on your computer’s desktop. Watch out the check-boxes options on the right top of Odin, ensure that the ‘RE-PARTITION’ is unchecked. Leave the ‘AUTO-REBOOT and ‘F.RESET TIME’  remains checked.
Now, click on the AP button, then select and load the single file that you have previously extracted.
AP button: "I9195XXUCNH5_I9195OXACNH5 _Home.tar.md5"

Reboot the Galaxy S4 Mini into Download Mode

To put your Galaxy S4 Mini in download mode, just simply switch it off then gently press and hold the “POWER, VOLUME DOWN and HOME” buttons simultaneously. You’ll be then prompted in a warning screen to continue or cancel.

Connect the Phone to the Computer or Laptop

Once the phone screen shows in downloading mode, connect your phone to the PC with the USB cable. You’ll then notice the upper box in Odin that turns in yellow color., it also indicates the COM:ID where the device is being detected and a word “added!!’ on the log box. If somehow those things never showed up, check out the USB cable connection, read again from the top of this post.

Flash it!

Once all set and ready, hit he “START” button to begin flashing.
Do not touch anything that might interrupt the process to avoid any fatal errors or failures, it may ruin your device if any interruption occurs while already in flashing status.
It may take a couple of minutes or longer and it depends of your PC/laptop speeds. A word “PASS” will display in Odin once it finishes. If somehow you will not get the word “PASS” or just stuck in a long time. Disconnect the phone, remove battery, re-insert it, check the USB connection, re-install the driver, disable Kies and any anti-virus. Set the phone in Download mode again, and repeat the whole procedure.

The phone will just automatically reboots if the firmware flashing successfully completes. Just wait until it boots up on the “Samsung” logo for a while then into an android update screen. If it still shows boot logo try rebooting and if it stays there, you need to wipe your phone.

Fixing possible issues after flashing like bootloops or just stuck in welcome screen logo

Boot in recovery mode – Press and hold Volume Up, Home and Power button. Use volume keys to select up and down and power or home key to select the option.

1. Select Wipe Data/Factory Reset
2. Next select the Wipe Cache Partition
3. Lastly select Reboot System Now to reboot your Galaxy S4 Mini in Normal mode.
Confirm your fresh firmware installed by typing *#1234# or
Go to Settings>About Phone>Firmware info.
Check and reconfigure your APN settings when data networks connection issues encountered.

You may then confirm the newly installed firmware from your Galaxy S4 Mini:
Tap on Settings>About Device> Firmware info or type *#1234# and see if it’s already I9195XXUCNH5 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build.  That’s it!

  1. I'm living in Belgium and there's still no 4.4.2 available for my S4 Mini build jdq39.I9195XXUBNB3, but I see there are already updates available for other builds.
    A while ago I rooted my phone and when i search for software updates I get "Your device has been Modified. SW Updates are not available"
    Now my question is, can I just flash my phone using ODIN with this build?
    PDA-CSC and MODEM don't match but is that a problem?!
    Will everything still work

  2. You can do flash this one and then just re-flash Belgium's default firmware when available. Just make sure to keep your APN settings as it will change..
