I'd like to flash my SM-T813 because it's in a boot loop. I downloaded supposedly the latest firmware. I think it was a tar.md5 file, I peek into this tar file and it's a whole bunch of files:

enter image description here

ODIN has these slots: BL, AP, CP, CSC, USERDATA. I possibly want to lash the bootloader as well. How do I continue from here, which file is which? I see what are the slots here What do the terms "BL", "AP", "CP", and "CSC" mean in Odin?, but not sure which files is which. I guess .mbn means some boot record (?). System.img is the largest, but the other img files are probably important too (actually probably most files).

  • Putin works with tar.md5 files – alecxs Jul 22 at 5:26
  • @alecxs thanks. My main machine is Linux, I can only put the tablet into download mode and I was not able to get Putin recognize it. I'll try it again. I also double check that this was a tar.md5. Any software takes tar? I tried Kies as well but SM-T813 cannot be factory resetted by it. – Csaba Toth Jul 22 at 6:16
