Password is:

Step-1:Boot your device in Download mode by pressing and holding Volume down key,Home button and power button

Step-3 Then Connect your device with computer via USB....and wait till the first bar in odin transforms to yellow colour(this indicates that your device it detected)

  6. Before installing Android 2.3.6(Gingerbread), i was using cyanogenmod 10.1. on my samsung galaxy mini/pop. After installing Android 2.3.6 step by step as shown above, every thing was going smooth, but after finishing installation (Pass) in odin, my mobile screen stuck at Samsung logo and just keep rebooting.
    If anybody is having this problem try this method which worked for me. Remove your battery put it aging in mobile, now press "home" button and "Power" button together ,release power button when samsung logo appears, a screen will appear "Android system recovery".Now move down to "wipe data/factory reset" (move 'up' & 'down' using volume rocker button)go to "yes--delete all user" and press home button to confirm the action , now again move down to "wipe cache partition" and press Home button to confirm the action. Now reboot. Hope this help

  8. how to extract the firmwire? please help.
