If you have a CWM backup, try restoring from that; if not, use odin

Volume down + camera + power = downloading mode

Did you rename your backup?
If so remove any spaces or "/" from the name and it should work

And you can just use Odin to fix it as a last resort.

the md5 mismatch, try taking out sd and take off(delete) cwm backup and then if have saved on pc just put back on sd card. if not saved on pc then just re odin to something stock and rebuild from there and always make backups as you progress and save to pc using usb or card reader.
