Tars and MD5s are for Odin."zhakrin said:Just to clarify, this is my first attempts at rooting a phone.
I've successfully tried several of the custom ROMs and while there are some things I like about them I've decided I really like the look and feel of the stock ROM. I downloaded one of the debloated and deodexed ones from the list. However, these are tar files and not zip so they don't install like the others I've tried. I tried using some instructions I saw on how to put your phone back to stock, but I just used the debloated file instead. Well the Samsung software didn't like that and for some reason Odin fails when trying to install from there. So at this point I'm stuck. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
Run ODIN. Hit PDA, then pick the .tar. Then, power off your phone, pull out the battery, plug it in, and hold down vol. down. This should set your phone into Download Mode, and it should be recognized in odin in a little yellow box ("COMxx"). Slip your battery in and press start. And wait. Done!
