I have a Tab Pro 10.1 WiFi that was sourced from Hong Kong.
I have been trying to replace the stock Hong Kong firmware (TGY CSC) with stock UK firmware (BTU CSC), but have had problems.
ODIN 3.09 always fails on hidden.img when flashing the UK BTU firmware, but works fine flashing the Hong Kong TGY firmware.

The firmware packages that I have used are the latest downloads from Sammobile, and extract to a single *******.tar.md5 file.
I have added this file to the AP section of ODIN, with nothing selected under PIT, BL, CP or CSC.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any help.

No it does not look like your doing anything wrong.

The BTU firmware you are trying to use is actually older meaning (your trying to downgrade).
The TGY firmware is of a higher version on the PDA and CSC and most probably the bootloader as well.

This is the most probable reason why = you cannot downgrade it is getting more and more difficult.

At the moment some users are able to downgrade from lollipop to kitkat but this is another story apart from yours.

Hi samsungfozzy, thanks for taking the time to reply to my question.

I just wanted to confirm the versions that I am trying to use, as the BTU UK version has a later build date than the original TGY Hong Kong version.
Does this sort of change require a PIT file to repartition?

It seems I may have been looking at a different model :confused: so before I comment any further.

So if you can clarify what your model is by downloading this app phoneinfo from the playstore and posting back the screen shots (dont include your IMEI number).

Hi samsungfozzy,

I have attached the images.

Have you edited the Product code, Baseband, Manufacturing date ??

I do not know what I looked at before but the firmware you posted in post #3 should be ok, I cannot see a problem although the TGY is a slightly bigger image. This should only be the "bloat" though.

You should not need to use PIT files and advise not to use one.

Are you able to use Kies3 ? like does it recognise your device and can exchange data to and from your device ? then try the following before using Odin to upgrade.

It is recommend to try this before and after upgrades.

Back up/remove your required data if you have put it back on, then;
1, remove battery for 10 minutes
2, enter recovery mode
3, wipe cache
4, wipe data/ factory reset

sometimes you have to do this a few times !!!
