[Q] How to Remove Cyanogenmod 11 and go back to stock. [Galaxy Player 5.0 US]

I flashed this with Cyanogenmod 11 soon after I got it 2 months ago. Well times are tough and I have to sell it on eBay. I want to remove Cyanogenmod 11 and revert back to stock. I know the thread where the stock ROM and PIT files are (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2192488) so thats half the battle there. Is it the same process as this (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1531850) or is there something else I need to do. Do I have to install GA APPS like you do with custom ROMs or is that not needed

This is all pretty new to me. I know how to flash custom ROMs and such but flashing the stock ROM seems tricky to me. Sorry if this has all been covered so many times that it makes you tired of seeing this, I just have to be sure I do this right and dont brick it (cant sell a paper weight on eBay for too much money lol).

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for all the hardwork that goes into making these ROMs as well

EDIT: Can I flash the stock ROM with the US Kernal, US PIT file and 2.3.5 gapps like I did with Cyanogenmod 11 or is that impossible?

Again sorry for the newbie question!

You need to wipe all data and use Odin to flash your gingerbread firmware.

Okay that makes sense then. Do I boot into recovery, wipe data and then flash everything using Odin or is there a more preferred way to wipe data. Just making sure I have all this sorted before I do something bad.

I think after flashing a factory firmware by Odin, the device will AUTOMATICALLY boot into stock recovery, where you can wipe data in the correct format. At least that's what it said in the guide I read, and also happens on my Player 4.0 for both Froyo and Gingerbread.

Now I have a boot loop.... I followed this guide with no success. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1850600

Any other ideas?

I am getting lots of errors in recovery mode. Lots of can't mount errors and everything else. I have no idea what to do now. So much for selling this to make some money.

Dude I had the same problem all you need to do is flash RJ cwm 14 kernel then go back in download mode go to Odin and I hate to say this but flash your gingerbread firmware. Tell me if this works or not because this happened to me 3 times Boot loop and brick status and semi brick.

No did not work. Still stuck in the boot loop. When I am in Recovery mode, I get unable to mount errors. It wont see my external SD card either.

Well since you're getting mount errors, are you sure you flashed the correct PIT file? Mount errors are likely caused by a wrong pit file.

EDIT: I see you have pointed to a thread with correct PIT files. So I think you should flash the PIT file first, boot into download again and then flash the Stock ROM and Kernel. If it boot loops at the boot animation, boot into the stock recovery and wipe data.
