Heimdall is a cross-platform open-source tool suite used to flash firmware (aka ROMs) onto Samsung mobile devices.

A word of caution:
Is Heimdall safe?

No matter which method you chose, flashing firmware onto your device has potential for disaster. We test Heimdall with a variety of devices by flashing each one with several different versions of appropriate firmware. As such we believe that Heimdall is extremely reliable for the devices that we have tested. However keep in mind, just like any firmware flashing software, Heimdall has the potential to brick your device if not used correctly.
