yes.. or if you know anyone with knowledge of phones they might b able to pull it from there device.. i kno how to decompile a tar n create a zip but this wouldnt help you.. im sure theyll hafta have a tar eventually for situations like yours.. at least now you know that you have a different phone than the att s5 and a completely different model number..

Alright so I just called samsung this morning and the representative told me that its just a reflash and they will do it....personally I think she's wrong but I recorded the call and she sent me a free shipping label and everything so ya. try to call att you never know what might just happen. As soon as I get it back though i'm having someone/anyone help me pull the firmware off the phone.

yea youd hafta search around on how to do it.. it is just a software reflash thats needed.. you should have asked where the odin tar for your device is at so u could reflash yourself using odin n saw if they had one anywhere

I recent purchased the sm-870a (ATT S5 Active). I'd be happy to dump my firmware if anyone still needs it. My only request is that someone who is a mod point me to the preferred tool/procedure and also verify the dump does not have any personally identifiable information on it. Id hate to find out that I dumped private keys or passwords or some other tid bit that allowed someone to screw up my account. (FIRST POST) I do infosec for a living so I'm pretty sure I can handle whatever instructions you guys recommend, Just trying to give back a little to the site that has taught me Android.

Ahh if only I saw this 6 hours ago I just sent my phone into samsung to get it fixed. I think that many many people would appreciate you if you were to do so. you should probably make your own thread for this, there's definitely someone who will be willing to help you. if you manage to do it thank you.

I have the G870A as well. I got stuck on the boot logo after root but held the power button to force a reboot. You could have also forced a reboot to recovery and tried to wipe cache and reboot. If I get into this problem again I'll let everyone know how I got out of it.

Hey, not sure if this will help, but it looks to be a start...

It'll allow us to basically dump the partitions in our phones. However, there's no way I can think of to turn this into an Odin tar file (unless its as easy as compressing as tar?) but this might still be useful If I see anything else, I'll let you guys know

Yes please if you could extract the firmware that would be awesome!
