Step Three: Download Odin3 zip from here.
– extract the Odin contents on your PC.
Step Four: Power off your phone and boot it in Download Mode.
Step Five: Launch the Odin exe on your computer.
– wait for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus to be added by ODIN and then continue to the next step.
– if no device is recognized by your PC, try reinstalling Samsung USB drivers
Step Six: In Odin, click on the “options” tab and make sure that ‘re-partition’ option is disabled.
– continue to the next step when you’re done.
