Hey guys! I've been using unofficial CM11 from Temasek and his kernel and I was starting to experience some random restarts and boot loops so I decided to revert to Stock. I downloaded two different versions of stock, one 4.3 and one 4.4.2. Each time I tried to flash I get this:
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> N9005XXUDMJ6_N9005VDIDMJ4_N9005XXUDMJ4_HOME.tar.md 5 is valid.

<ID:0/003> FAIL! (Size)
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
<ID:0/003> Removed!!

Anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

Q+A goes HERE

- You need to flash a higher bootloader. MJ7 or MK --- However since you attempted to flash 4.4.2 - you have probably loaded up the 4.4.2 bootloader, and you're only option is flashing KK now.. If you have a Hong Kong Note, then you need to go and read... a lot.

Thanks, sorry about the mix-up. I don't have the Hong Kong edition, just the SM-N9005 international. What bootloader do I use if I already tried to load up the 4.4.2 ?

Grab Poland ROM (XEO firmware) flashvia PDA slot in Odin (Not 3.09) use 1.85 or 3.04 / 3.07 - should be good to go.

Thank you for the reply and help! One other question though, I was looking at the mj7 files and mk and they all appear to be 4.3. So is that a no go or should I try to flash that or just go with the XEO firmware?

EDIT: IT WORKED! Thank you so much, man! I was really freaking out.
