Same thing. Odin shuts down immediately.

Samsung USB Drivers installed. Odin sees (added) the phone.

It must be the way I am TARing the file using 7zip??

I was told that I could root a samsung verizon s5 on lollipop but there was no way that I could have root with marshmallow. If I want marshmallow, I couldn't have root.

If I flash this with odin, you are saying that I can have root and marshmallow? How cool that would be.

I have the same problem, maybe the file is corrupt. I tried to compress it in TAR with different programs, but ODIN quits unexpectedly, I also tried different versions of ODIN, but it did not work. Would it be too much to ask you to upload the file in TAR format?

The latest security update has played the trick. Don't worry I will update this thread when we have an alternate solution. :-)

Okay, everything downloaded, firmware converted from zip to tar, but I run Odin, select PDA, select the newly converted tar file, Then Odin closes unexpectedly, happens everytime. even when I choose to run everything as administrator

Then there is something wrong with your PC OS.
I have tested it successfully even on Windows 10. Please try another computer.
