    Its fine to install, it just scans / removes malware

    Its the WAT update you want to skip

    Why use pre-activated Windows 7. Use untouched Windows 7 from direct links from M$ and activate with Windows Loader and don't worry from any updates, just install them ALL even KB971033.

    I agree with this. I've been using ODIN 1.3.7 (activates on OEM channel) with no issues for years.

    I cannot believe you have been a member on this forum since 2011 and have not noticed what happened after kb 890830 Daz loader works ok.

    Sorry it may work for some but ODIN is totally outdated as regards to new slic 2.0 and 2.1 and even 2.2 certificates.

    Plus, ODIN isn't supported here since the maker decided to take it to a PAYED forum.
