    10 mins like this, how long is it suppose to be? what to do?

      • There is software on your computer competing with Odin for the serial ports.

        Make sure Kies (including Kies Tray Agent) is turned off – use Task Manager and search for both in Applications & Processes. If you have Sony Ericsson PC Companion (or any other mobile phone software for that matter) .. uninstall it and any drivers associated with it or any phones you may have owned.

        Reboot and open Odin as an administrator and give it a shot then.

        Good luck.
