    If this is official firmware, then why Samsung isn’t making it available? What is the use of delaying the roll out of this update?

      I posted the same query earlier, but from his reply it looks like the poster himself does not know.

      The article seems to be a cut/paste of another tutorial.

      It has no relation to the files actually obtained after extraction.

    Cannot update please give full procedure

    • Reply Pradeep Neela July 16, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      where it is getting stuck?>

      • Reply Suresh July 16, 2013 at 1:11 pm

        Loads every thing but gets in to boot loop and when I try to wipe factory deta it shows as dead

  11. Reply Royce July 12, 2013 at 10:59 am

    After extracting, We get the following files …






    You have only said “Click on “PDA” tab in the Odin to select the tar file which you got after extracting”

    Which tar file of the above ?
    What about baffin.pit ?

    • Reply Pradeep Neela July 19, 2013 at 12:13 pm

      boot is the one

      • Reply Royce July 23, 2013 at 11:37 pm

        Your tutorial is incomplete and does not match the files we get after extracting.

        I am doubtful about your answer : Use the boot …md5 file in PDA ? are you sure ?

        What to do with the other files ?

        I don’t think you actually saw the extracted files ? Looks like you just ‘cut-pasted’ from an older tutorial.
