Lightbulb (Guide) How to fix a failed recovery flash


I'm going to tell you how to fix a failed recovery flash on the Samsung Gravity smart/Galaxy Q (Interrupted, etc)

First of all, this only works and is intended if your SGH-T589/SGH-T589R displays a phone, a computer, and a yellow triangle when it boots. *EDIT* a link to the picture is here

If that shows, then you can re-flash your recovery.
1: A micro USB cable
2: Odin 4.40 USA with the OPS file
3:The stock recovery.img from samfirmware.com (you need to register first before downloading)
4:ADB (Android Debug Bridge which can be found in the android SDK)
5:Samsung Kies (Also when your phone is in the brick screen, windows will install drivers)

Okay, here are the steps:
1:Put the recovery.img file into the Platform-tools folder (where ADB is)
2:In ADB, enter these commands:

Command 1 : tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > STOCK-Recovery.tar
Command 2 : md5sum -t STOCK-Recovery.tar >> STOCK-Recovery.tar
Command 3 : mv STOCK-Recovery.tar STOCK-Recovery.tar.md5

3:Then you will find a file called STOCK-Recovery.tar.md5 in the same folder as recovery.img
4:Connect your phone to your computer via the micro USB
5: Open Odin 4.40 USA and select the OPS file (I recommend putting it in the same folder as Odin is)
6:Select the check "One package"
7:Select the "One package" button.
8:Select where you put your STOCK-Recovery.tar.md5 file and select the file
9:Also, change the number "200" (Beside "reset time") to "50"
10:Ignore the error message that comes up.
11:Select the "Checksum fail" button
12:Wait 'till it reboots (Keep "Auto Reboot" checked before you flash)
13: Once the log says "Killed timer", you can unplug your phone and close odin

This was based on what just happened. (You won't loose any of your data except for a few SD card fails. Just reboot your phone)
