My GT-N8000 suddenly hanged, only showing screen saying "Firmware upgrade encounter an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & Try again"(with the yellow triangle with '!' in the center). I cannot access recovery mode, only Odin downloading mode. After searching and reading on how to re-flash stock firmware, I decided to try it by my self. I re-flash KIES_HOME_N8000DXUCMB1_N8000OLBCMB1_795498_REV00_u ser_low_ship.tar.md5 that I got from sammobile, using Odin3 v1.85 (I only ticked Autoreboot). Here is what I got ...
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> KIES_HOME_N8000DXUCMB1_N8000OLBCMB1_795498_REV00_u ser_low_ship.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..

...it PASS (green color ), but seems like nothing happened. My tablet did not reboot, still got the screen saying "Firmware upgrade encounter an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & Try again"(with the yellow triangle with '!' in the center). I still cannot access recovery mode, only Odin downloading mode. .... So I hope someone could help/advice me on what I missed, or teach me a more effective way on how to do it correctly.
