Step 5: Put your Samsung Phone in Download Mode and connect to the PC
Switch off your device and press power + volume down + home to enter download mode. However, a few older phones use a different button combination. If you do not know how to enter download mode, search Google “Galaxy S10 download mode” and follow the instruction. After entering your device to download mode, connect the device to PC using a USB data cable.
Step 6: Flash the Stock ROM
After connecting the device to the PC, if the USB driver is installed properly, navigate to the Odin software. Now, click on the “BL” button and select the file that starts with the “BL” from the extracted firmware. Next, click on the “AP” button in Odin and select the AP file.

Now, verify that all four files are uploaded properly, and the checkmarks appear next to each button. Now, click on the “Start” button at Odin’s bottom, and the flashing process will begin.
The whole flashing process usually takes 10-15 minutes depending on the speed, and your device will take a few extra minutes to reboot it. After rebooting the device, you will see the custom ROM is running. However, after installing the new firmware, you will not go back to the old firmware.
