yes how to use it.. I finally figured out that 'heimdal-frontend' in terminal opens it lol, but it says error communicating with phone. In the advanced tab I click check phone and it says all good. But when I flash it says errror. Idk, I borrowed my old laptop from my brother and used Odin. But I'd like to figure this out still

did you extract everything from the odin tar? heimdall works essentially the same as odin but you have to tell it specifically what to flash, you cant just flash the whole odin tar as one file.
