Hello Guys!! I'm hoping someone can give me a hand. I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (SM-T320) that is soft brick. If i'm not mistaken the device was been updated via OTA and crashed. Every time i try to turn on the device I get the following message "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". For some reason I'm not able to boot the device into recovery mode. It seems the partition got damaged. Please note that I'm using the following commands to boot into recovery mode (volume up+home+power). I have tried connecting my tablet to Samsung Kies v188.8.131.5274_11 and use the option "Firmware Upgrade & Initialisation" but at the end of the procedure I get the following message "This version of the device cannot be updated". I have attempted to flash the device using Odin v3.07. The stock ROM I used was T320UEU1ANG1_T320XAC1ANG1_HOME.tar.md5. The Odin PASSED and reset device but the phone did not boot back up. It just gets stuck on the boot screen. I have also tried to flash the device with custom recovery cwmr-20140605.tar. but I didn't have any luck. If anyone has any ideas or solutions, please let me know. I'll greatly appreciated.
I just attempted to use odin v3.09 but I'm still having the same problem. It keeps getting stuck on the samsung galaxy tab pro sm-t320 screen without recovery mode. I have attempted to flash cmw again but the problem persists. I also noticed the battery won't charge anymore. I'm not sure if this was due to a failed flash. Anyone has any other ideas?
Get the cwmr tar file (unzip the zip). Flash it in Odin. When it starts to flash it, hold the volume up key until it shows the galaxy tab pro splash screen and says something like "warranty bit set: recovery".
That should get you back to recovery. If that doesn't work, post a screen shot of Odin after the flash.
If your kernel is broken, which it sounds like it is, it's normal that it won't charge because it needs to boot the kernel to charge even when you "power off".
I managed to get my tablet to charge by tearing down the device and reconnecting the battery. After doing this, i plugged it directly to the wall. I got this idea from a youtube video. Im going to leave the battery charging all night. Hopefully tom its a good day and i have a working device
