Hi, i successfully rooted my Galaxy tab s 8.4 with the root method discussed on the development
section. I am using a stock rom. the tablet runs fine with the OS. I decided to try a custom rom.
I have tried everything to get into bootloader, the power button with the volume keys gets me to
the "downloading target the android guy logo. I do not get the screen that gives me the options
to select recovery, bootloader or reboot screen. I have all the drivers installed. fast boot fails.
I dont know what else to. I have tried loading thru TWRPa rom and i get a sig verification.
i have heard what an ADB sodeload but not sure if that will help. Any recommendations would
be appreciated.

thanks!

Have you tried this? It's worked for me twice on soft bricks.

I tried that. thank you for offering. I an not stuck in a bootloop. I can get right to the OS and it runs fine. But I have
no access at all to the bootloader. I have no clue what to do.

I have the same problem, I'm trying to simply get fastboot access to install CWM instead of TWRP. bootloader command in adb does absolutely nothing, just reboots into the OS. Also, running quickboot with root permission does the same thing. The bootloader just seems to be gone, but the tablet works flawlessly.

Same problem with mine.

My Galaxy Tab S 8.4 was bought from HK.

Same here. Sadly there is no option to use fastboot with this device. The only solution is to flash via Odin.

Cheers
