the xxx.tar.md5 needs to be renamed to xxx.tar after downloading.
(i.e. just drop the md5)
Else Odin will throw an error. 

It was a mistake from the original developer/uploader.
It has been corrected in the original thread at XDA .

Also, make sure you transfer the downloaded '' file to the root of your *external* SD card (not Internal storage).
It ain't mistake dude
Hi Chotu222 ...
BTW guys Chotu222 is the reason why we have a rooted Grand ! Take the time to Thank him on the thread at XDA !
Well, Odin threw an error with the original file name, but worked fine after dropping the .md5 extension....
Wonder why ?
What's the procedure now ... retain the md5 extension or drop it ?

Guys, if one gives an error try the other .... Smile
