Hi All,

I've attempted to root my SM-900, using Odin 3.09 and followed all the usual steps.
Suddenly I got different coloured horizontal lines on screen and that probably means my attemp didn't go that well...

I've read I should go back to the original firmware using kies, and then try again.

So how do I restore the original firmware?
I have an image (.img) and understand I need samsung Kies.

Question: Do I use Kies or the new KIES3?
How to go from there?

Or is there another way to restore the firmware?

Thanks in advance!

I figured it out already....

I un-tar-red the recovery file. Leaving it as .tar solved the issue.

Thank you

Since the recovery image was downloaded as aan .tar file, which is a container file like .zip or.7z, I thought that I needed to unzip it.
You can mount the .tar file in Odin as it is, without unzipping it first.

You can find the recovery download location in the CF-root thread.

Mine did that after flashing a different firmware and trying to root. I solved it by first flashing the stock recovery in chainfires thread then rooting.

I'm having this same problem. I downloaded CF-Auto-Root-v1awifi-v1awifixx-smp900.zip from download.chainfire.eu. I extracted the zip file, leaving me with a tar.md5 file. I try to flash that file, and end up with multicolor bars across the screen, exactly like if the video card dies on a mobile.

Here's what Odin has output as of when the error occurs. It flashes up a big red failed in the upper left box.
Code:
<ID:0/005> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-v1awifi-v1awifixx-smp900.tar.md5 is valid.

So I flashed the original recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=234 and got a working but unrooted tablet. And I flashed CF with both 3.09 and 3.07, with a flash back to stock before each. Same thing every time-picture of a dying video card, except display is fine once flashed back to stock. Pic of the display added, on the off chance it helps.

So this happened to me, and this is my first time rooting. I have the tar file for recovery. How do I proceed? I haven't unplugged my note pro, can I just put in the new file in the pda and start, or do I need to restart odin? Really kind of worried...

Soft Bricked
When trying to root I got stuck in Down Load and nothing seems to work. Does anyone have a link to a ROM I can try to flash with ODIN? I tried the bonuzzz rom and this is what Odin says.
