Hallo Forumianers and XDA-Freaks!

I've got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8010 Wi-Fi only) and I got it two years ago with retail mode software on it. To get this retail s**t off, I flashed it with CWM and installed a custom rom with same functionality as the stock rom. I was happy with it until now. For some reasons I need to get original stock rom on it now (e.g. update capability by Samsung) and here my problem starts:

I downloaded N8010XXUCMA5 - Open Germany - JB 4.1.2 file, extracted the zip and flashed my N8010 with Odin 1.85 and the xxx.tar.md5 file. It worked perfectly until trying to write the boot.img data. At the very last second (actually 1 or 2 seconds before it should have been finished) the procedure failed with a red field in Odin and the word Failed in it.

Then I just tried to restart the device normal and I got the "DEAD-SCREEN" (An issue occurred while updating device... a.s.o.).

Frustrated from hours of work - I tried the same procedure three times with same result - and sleepy I decided to go back to a custom rom for now. So !! I flashed CWM on the N8010 by Odin and made a system restart.... !!!!! I couldn't believe: N8010XXUCMA5 rom started perfectly and works without any problems...

But my main problem stays: I can't use update functionality to update to newest Samsung version...

Does anybody have an idea on how to resolve this problem and just install original stock rom by Samsung? (e.g. resetting binary counter - not yet tried, etc....).

Do I have to do special procedure before installing N8010XXUCMA5 version???

Thank you all in advance for any help and/or ideas!!!

Best regards, Ingmar

Not really know what do you mean about boot.img, but I flashed my note using stock rom dozens of time without any problem, just Odin and the stock 4.1.2 rom.

I was thinking, probably the rom you downloaded was corrupted or something. I would do a factory reset from recovery mode and try flashing other version (older 4.0.2). Then do the upgrade from the settings menu instead. Probably you'll need to upgrade to 4.1.2 first then to 4.4

Resetting binary count works PERFECTLY, using triangle away (props to the dev; chainfire, purchased it immediately). You need to root your device to use it tho. And yest, GT-N80XX is supported (mine is GT N8000, Wifi-GSM).

hope that helps.

cheers

Thank you for your answer.

I tried now four different firmware versions (cma5 to cmk2) also with triangle away before (triangle away -> reset counts and status -> boot to download mode -> flash versions).
Neither of the versions work. The flashing by Odin 1.85 always fails between 20% and 99%.

Why this could hapen??? Does anybody have an idea or suggestion on how to get an official version of JB and recovery on N-8010???

Best regards,

Ingmar
