      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.

  • Suresh

    Cannot update please give full procedure

    • Pradeep Neela

      where it is getting stuck?>

      • Suresh

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

  • Royce

    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 ?

    • Pradeep Neela

      boot is the one

      • Royce

        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.
