Decided to make this thread to help out people that might encounter the same problem I had when trying to play on some Punk Buster protected pr0mod servers.
~REASON~

If you ever get kicked and get a 2min temp-ban with a message similar to this :

MD5Tool Mismatch: main/iw_01.iwd (len=2048)
[iw_xx could be whatever, I for instance had 01 and 02]
Explanation for it is this:

Kick info: MD5 tool mismatch: xxxxx.xxx
"When PB checks the files, there is a mismatch. E.g. you changed the music file."

This means you have a crappy cracked version of the game with altered .iwd files.
I had the most popular version on the "bay":
avi** (you probably know the name, won't advertise)
~THE FIX~

To fix, you got to get clean IW_xx.iwd and localized_english_iwxx.iwd files which can be found here : http://games.buho.ch/COD4/main/

D-load and replace them all in your [cod4directory]/main folder.

To check if done properly, here is how your main folder should look like (disregard colors_xxx files) :

MAKE SURE IWD FILE SIZE IS SAME AS IN THE SCREENSHOT.

That's it, you GUCCI. Shouldn't get kicked from now on.​
