    Stock ROMs for the S4 are usually flashed through Odin 3.x, not Recovery. You'll need to put the phone in download mode and then follow the instructions for flashing via Odin.

    Open the zip. If there's a .tar or .tar.md5 file inside, that's the file you flash in Odin. Odin is for the installation of anything, if properly formatted (root hacks, ROMs, file installs, etc).

    what if you are not able to locate a .tar or .md5 file inside the zip file for the stock rom? I have downloaded android 4.1.2 for the sphL710 (sprint galaxys3) and have not been able to find the md5 or tar file to flash with odin. I think this is what the original question was....
