Hi guys. How can I create a flashable tar.md5 file via Odin? I need it to install a custom rom.. For first I installed the rom via recovery, then I made a backup of the /system partition using dd command line. After made the backup with the ext4.img extension (like stock firmwares), I converted it in tar.md5 using these commands on Ubuntu 14.04:
 tar -H ustar -c customrom.ext4.img > customrom.tar

md5sum -t customrom.tar >> customrom.tar

mv customrom.tar customrom.tar.md5
Then I flashed the tar.md5 file via Odin but it gave me always fail.. There's anyone that could help me?
