There are so many odin3 download websites I am not sure what is a trusted url to download an odin tool suitable for flashing my International Note3 SMN9005.

Can someone provide a link and maybe some upvotes to confirm it's safe. I'd hate to brick my $800 phone due to some messed up copy of odin.

    More often than not, the download links on XDA are trustworthy. – onik Jun 5 '14 at 5:49

    It's always a good idea to take a look into the corresponding tag-wiki :) – Izzy Jun 5 '14 at 9:01

I understand this is an old question, but FlashFire has emerged as the "spiritual successor" to Odin. It's developed by Chainfire, who's also responsible for other things like StickMount, SuperSU and LiveBoot and is a highly regarded name in the Android community.

FlashFire is currently in beta, so getting it is slightly more involved:

  1. Join the FlashFire Google+ Community
  2. Download the app from Google Play

If you still want Odin however, this XDA thread appears to offer a popular and trusted version.
