  • make backups using these instructions;
  • turn on USB Debugging;
  • flash USB drivers for the phone on your comp;
  • download Odin tool (via this link) and afterwards (file name: E210KKKJMH1_E210KKTTAMH1_KTF.zip) on the notebook;

How to install KKJMH1 firmware on your device

  1. Start our guide by unzipping the files that are saved on your notebook. Switch the handset off after you spot Odin tool 3.07.exe and .tar.md5, then boot the device into Download Mode.
  2. For this, make sure to do as follows: press and hold Volume Down together with Home and Power simultaneously; press Volume Up after you see a screen of warning appear.
  3. Follow this up by running the Odin tool v3.07.exe as Admin by right-clicking on .exe file after which you should tap the option “Run as administrator” (which you will see in the phone’s context menu). Plug the Samsung SHV-E210K to the notebook.
  4. You should be greeted with “Added!!” and with a yellow-colored COM port number. But if not, then you can either choose to re-install those USB drivers or just use a different kind of USB port.
  5. After the devices are connected to each other at last, you need to pick some files. The instructions for this task are easy to follow. Begin by clicking on “PDA“, then choose a file with CODE in the name, now tap “Phone“, select that file which has MODEM in the name, click on “CSC“, opt for a CSC name, tap “PIT” and then choose a file containing .pit inside the name.
  6. Once you have selected all of these files, you should activate these three options: Re-partition (only if the .pit file was chosen before), F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot. Now start the installation of the firmware needed for the update by tapping a button called “Start“.
  7. When the flashing ends, the Galaxy S3 SHV-E210K LTE is going to do the following: reboot and display “Pass” on its screen.
  8. [sc name=”banner-jos”]When those elements get together, you will know that you have to disconnect the handset from your notebook. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean KKJMH1 firmware is now located in here: your device’s “About Phone“. Click on this particular tool and be awed at what your SHV-E210K welcomes you with. Which means new options, fresh features to customize your device with, custom ROMs and so on.

NOTE: The moment the Odin message box shows an “MD5 hash value is invalid” message, you will have to solve the problem by downloading the familiar firmware again.

Or, should the phone be stuck in boot animation, you should take care of this issue by entering the Recovery Mode, choosing “Factory reset/Wipe data“, selecting “Wipe cache partition” and then finishing by restarting the device by opting for this: “Reboot the phone“.

Now simply enjoy your handset in its updated glory!
