Hi im trying to return galaxy 8.9 tablet back to stock using odin, but it gets stuck at system.img.md5 and wont move...is there any way to fix.. tried switching usb ports and no luck...please need help



alrigh... alrigh... alriiiight got it to work after almost 5 days with out a tablet....which i really missed... I finally fixed the god damn issues with this stupid thing.....

with odin constantly hanging on system.img i had to work around it...
first got odin far enough into system.img to were cwm would work
second i adb into the tablet and pushed rom file into sdcard
third i installed rom and finally got my tablet back

yessss

also learned how to open tablet and pull the battery out....which i didn't need to do at all

What is your recent history in terms of Rom & recoveries installed, other errors encountered... ?

Did you do any formats, wipes, factory resets, and if so, in what environment (android, recovery, adb, ...)

Kies is also not recognising my tablet.

This is completely unrelated! Pls create your own thread, or search for a topic that's actually similar to yours, instead of trampling over another...

I had the same issue after upgrade to US stock ICS and attempt to install CWM recovery resulted in a tablet that would not boot. Rebooted into recovery mode, rebooted from there to download mode and tried the Odin flash again using the US stock ICS. Each time I did this it got a bit further (as indicated by the download bar on the tablet screen) and eventually it succeeded. I am no expert so I completely fail to understand why this worked but it did.

Just like i said before.. In warning: Do not wipe or anything related to that if youre in ICS..
With stock kernel or stock recovery or One of them but you still in stock ICS boot.img wiping is risky..
if you use a safe recovery but your boot.img is not safe. ..or your boot.img is safe but recovery.img isnt. .
Your still have the emmc bug risk..
Stuck on system.img means odin not recognized your system partition.. Maybe corrupted or faulty..
Please read my warning in general section..
