      If your device is hanged on Samsung logo then go back to recovery and perform wipe cache partition and wipe data. If you want to go back to Gingerbread then download this firmware and flash the file using same instruction. Ignore DLL file:

        thanks, finally I got gingerbread on my phone…………..

        • arafat21

          Good to hear that.

  • arafat21

    It look like you extracted the zip file twice. Extract it only once and you will get a file with .tar.md5 extension.

    • Cosmicblue!

      ok so i need to extract only once, and for which option(phone ,cscor pda ) should i select it for from odin?

      • arafat21

        If you get only .tar.md5 file then just select PDA options.
