    1. @Michael Mendoza, I experienced the same thing as you. But I fingered it out and updated my tab with jelly bean. First you must exit ODIN and start it again. On the step 7 explained above only select the PDA checkbox, and choose the file named .tar or .md5. And then continue to step 8 until finish. I believe your tab will works fine. Thanks hope this help.
