i am running my phone on stock rom. its a region free phone, the standard international edition.
my phone suddenly got stuck at the boot logo, restarted it but still stuck.
couldn't get into recovery... vol up + power + home
download mode is working... vol down + power + home.
so i got the firmware from sammobile.com and got this tar.md5 file "I9300XXEMD3_I9300OJVEMC1_I9300XXEMA5_HOME.tar.md5 "
so i have tried both odin 3.04 and 3.07, and i cant flash the firmware.
i get this error
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..

<OSM> I9300XXEMD3_I9300OJVEMC1_I9300XXEMA5_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
