Problem restoring Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Recommended Posts

I know it is old, but I want to restore it and sell it for a few Euros rather than bin it.

 

I put CyanogenOS 13 (based off Android 6.0.1) on it, but it keeps rebooting when I try to start certain apps, like YouTube for example was the last one, so I decided to download the official rom from SamFirm but when I go to flash the zip in TWRP (2.8.7.0) it fails saying that there is no MD5 found and "Error flashing zip". I downloaded the zip twice and let it decrypt, and I could see there is a md5 file inside the zip I transferred to the sdCard on the Tab.

 

HELP! :(

OK maybe premature, I used the Odin method to flash in Download mode rather than from TWRP recovery and it seems to have worked, it is now on first boot (Samsung logo).
