Well from the info given by Ken Sumrall the problem being with the eMMC firmware even once we have kernel source if Samsung has yet to do a work around with the kernel we will still have to do one.
With that issue out of place it never was the recovery repacks at fault, even bone stock ics recovery can brick running an update.zip. Good thing there are not any that are meant to be used. But factory resetting still same problem same risk.
