MD5 Mismatch Fix: How To solve The MD5 Mismatch Error, The Easy Way For Samsung Galaxy devices...

Step 1: You have to navigate to the Backup folder that’s inside the ClockworkMod folder on your device and then select the backup you are trying to restore from. The path may be different depending on the type of file explorer you are using. I’m using the free ES File Explorer File Manager, which you can get from the Google Play store. If your phone doesn’t boot up anymore, you’ll have to use a file explorer on your computer. When you get to your backup, do NOT rename the folder! Just use it as is. Using your phone, tap through this path:

ES File Explorer > sdcard (referring to the internal SD Card if that’s where your backups are) > clockworkmod > backup > select your backup

Step 2: Open the nandroid.md5 file. Tap the file, select Text, and then select ES Note Editor. Highlight everything in the file and delete it. Tap the Back key, and confirm saving with Yes. If you’re using a computer to open the file, open it with notepad++.

Now restore again. If it again says mismatch then delete the nanroid.md5 file. Now ur backup will restore. (CHECKED)

That’s it. The content in the nandroid.md5 file caused the error. When ClockWorkMod does a Nandroid backup, it checks against the numbers in the nandroid.md5 file. When numbers don’t match up, it causes the MD5 Mismatch error. By deleting the content in the file, you force it to skip this step.
Try to restore again from the Nandroid backup. It should go through and your beloved device is working again. If not then again go
