A. Single file only – This firmware comes in a single packed mostly from recent updates that is fulled from official Samsung Kies firmware server. The PDA, MODEM and CSC file are in one single packaged. Single pack oftentimes comes as a NON-WIPE version, it means it does not delete or wipe your stored data from the phone’s memory after flashing.
Once you extracted this file, you”ll find a .tar.md5 file extension to it.
(I used Germany Stock Firmware on this guide since its the first official ICS firmware release)
Just load the file on the PDA box. Just click on the PDA button then select and load it.

Once the Android robot and a “Downloading” message appears.
