Step 5: For confirming that your device has been successfully connected, navigate to the downloaded folder & launch ‘Odin Multi Downloader3-v3.09′ software which you’ve just got after extraction. As soon as you open it, the ID:COM section in it (located at top left corner) will turn blue. Also an Added message will appear in the message window. This will confirm that your device has been successfully connected to the PC. But if it doesn’t turn blue then it’s more likely to be problem with the device drivers. Immediately check whether you’ve properly installed the device specific drivers on your PC or not. You can install them via Samsung Kies or manually install them from the links given above (refer Pre-Requisites section).
Step 6: Next tick the Auto Reboot option and F.Reset option located on the Odin window. Do not tick or un-tick any other option. Remember that ticking Re-partition option may increase the risk of bricking your device. So do not ignore this step before moving ahead.

Step 8: After doing everything as mentioned, initiate the process by pressing on the Start button located on the Odin window. You’ll notice that the phone automatically reboots itself while going through the process. Do not remove the USB cable until the process completes, as this may interrupt it.
Step 9: Be patient until the process completes fully. It will complete in few minutes. As soon as it completes successfully, you’ll see that the ID:COM section on the Odin window is turned green with the message ‘Pass’ below it. This will confirm that you have properly flashed the Official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean XXUANF1 firmware on your Galaxy Star Pro Duos. Now you can disconnect your phone by safely removing the USB cable.
Note: If the process fails or if Odin gets stuck or in case your device gets boot loops, then close the Odin window, remove battery from your Galaxy Star Pro Duos and re-insert it. Again go into downloading mode and follow the same procedure as given above.
Step 10: After successfully completing the process, again switch off your Galaxy Star Pro Duos to boot it into stock recovery mode. The same can be done by holding Home button (Middle button) + Volume Up + Power button simultaneously until the recovery mode appears.
Step 11: In the android stock recovery, navigate to the ‘Wipe data/factory reset’ option and ‘Wipe Cache partition’ option & select them to clear all the data and caches from your phone memory.
Step 12: Return back and restart your Galaxy Star Pro Duos by selecting ‘reboot system now’ option.
Note: If the process fails or you get any kind of error then just try to implement all the steps with Odin3.07. Use the PDA tab in place of AP in it.
