Here's a solution that worked for me

Flash the below with ODIN (thanks to bonzai3558), extract the .md5 file from the zip, and in odin choose PDA and point to that file, keep everything else blank/default. Connect Tab with USB (after it is in download mode by power on +Volume down then volume up, so it shows the yellow android with shovel) then hit Start.

this ODIN version:

and this pda md5:

Now when you check for OTA once your back up, itll work fine and get past 13% and go all the way (it is normal for it to stay a long time on 76%)

Best of all tablet is ROOTED

so this odin file is surely stock (and plays nice with the OTA update)

-PS: This odin file also will save your device if it is bricked or frozen (boot into download mode) power button + volume down button, then press volume up to select

*thanks pershoot for help as well

this version of odin isn't seeing my tab. I have the samsung drivers installed. :/ But it still says unknown device when I go into fastboot mode and odin doesn't see it

edit: not sure what it is, my gigabyte mother board seems to hate samsung android devices. Worked like a champ with my wife's laptop. Thanks!

SS2006, you are awesome! Thanks for posting this. I flashed recovery.img, flashed boot.img, and restored all the original apps from the system dump, but I was still stuck at 13%.

Was totally WTF...?

Then saw this thread. FLashed the zip file, and BOOM. Software update success!

Pershoot is the man!

Does this work on retail 10.1 tab
Can we odin back to stock with this image if we have the retail tab? Can we replace the retail bootloader with the I/O bootloader?
