Instead of being dead for so long, why didn't Madara just teach ET to Tobi so that, upon dieing, Tobi could just ET him back to life? Then Madara could just prevent the unsummoning and be all overpowered and immortal as he is now. Clearly, he wouldn't have had any trouble capturing the Jinchuuriki this way.
One might suppose he didn't know how to do the advanced version of ET that Kabuto does, that allows the summons to think for themselves. However, given that he knew of the drawback, I suspect he knew how to do it and was alluding to the reason that others had not allowed the ET summons to have such independence before..
Simple. The manga would make too much sense then. It's not acceptable.
Madara and Obit has been planned to using Rinnegan to revive Real Madara, Madara said it about his first appearance and Obito said that after Nagato died.
But the problem is that there is a time limit to revive people as Nagato said. If even Nagato cant revive his master that died max 1 year ago i wonder how ttobi can revive his long dead master
That is the kishi the trol for you!
How dare you lot use logic, begone!
A possible explanation is that Edo Tensei is a very rare/secret and hard-to-acquire jutsu
They just didn't have access to it, so they thought 'oh ok screw that, we have no idea where to start, let's just go with the easier option: Rinnegan resurrection'
Or as you the OP said, the first version of Edo Tensei was probably not advanced enough, it was Orochimaru and Kabuto that developed the jutsu further.

The same reason why Tobi didn't just teleport and snatch all the Jinchuuriki. The same reason Deidara didn't just fly high and blow the whole army up. The same reason Aizen didn't use Bankai (). The same reason Naruto's speed seems to vary between Minato and Tenten speed. The same reason Tobi isn't Tonton.
because unfortunately kishi can do the fuck he wants with little explanation
We don't really know how much knowledge Madara has in respect of ET. He may have found a way to break / unseal the technique as a means of stopping his Senju opponents of using ET against the Uchihas, but that doesn't mean he knows everything about it.
Obito clearly didn't know about ET until he forced Kabuto to teach him, but by that time Madara has already been brought back by Kabuto.
ya, just because you know the signs of Edo tensei, doesn't mean you can use the jutsu... madara knew the sign probably because of his meeting with the 2nd hokage, which we know he has met through the 1st hokage, so he knew the deactivation sign which is easier then performing the actual jutsu, just disrupt your chakra pretty much.
