    Hi all.
    Is there a way to extract an .apk from a .tar.md5 file?
    The tar file is the UK version of the official ICS update from sammobile.
    I've tried WinRar and 7zip.
    I keep ending up with image files and can't figure out how to extract.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    You'd have to somehow unpack the img files. I know for Motorola there were tools for that, not sure about Sammy

    Thank you.
    I'm sure there's a way, but I'm a total noob at this stuff.
    Thanks again.

    What file are you looking for? Maybe someone who flashed the specific build has it?

    When I briefly had the UK version of ICS, I gave Polaris Office a quick look and it seemed
    better than Quick Office which comes with the US version of ICS.
    Wanted to try and extract it and install on my tab.

    Polaris is probably available in Play Market as a trial.

    I can also see if I can get the apk, but I bet that without root, you will not be able to install it.
