    I have a Samsung Galaxy note 3 SM-N9005

    I rooted it and today I decided to unroot it.

    I downloaded the Australian SM-N9005 XSA firmware from SamMobile.

    I opened odin3 and proceeded to put my phone in the downloading mode.

    I ran everything as you would expect to.

    This is the data it gave me before saying "FAIL!"

    It is one one of two things I believe. A bad download (yes even these can pass checksums) or more likely you are trying to install an older firmware than that that is already on your rooted phone. You can flash newer or the same but not go back.

    I'd download the very latest firmware again and try again.

    Thank you so much for your help. You have relieved so much stress from me. I looked into finding the newest update for my phone. I found one, downloaded it, and flashed it and it passed!

    Thanks again.
