[Q] Need help with Galaxy Tab 10.1 LE looping woes

I updated the tablet to 3.1 OTA. A few weeks later I ran into the same looping problem reported by others with this model. I have tried to gather the intell from this forum but it's not solving my issue yet. Here's what I got:

I can work either through Windows XP or Mac.
  • adb fails to recognize device on either platform. adb_usb.ini file contains vendor id 0x04e8
  • Samsung Kies fails to connect to device on either platform.
  • fastboot fails to recognize device on either platform. For Windows I added
    ;Galaxy Tab 10.1v
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_04E8&PID_6860&REV_9999&MI_01
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_04E8&PID_6860&MI_01
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_04E8&PID_6601
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0955&PID_7000
    to the android_winusb.inf but to no avail.

  • For Windows I was able to connect using odin3 v1.85. It runs through in seconds and I get

    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
    <ID:0/008> Removed!!
    but it just continues to loop through the reboot.


I would truly appreciate some step-by-step instructions here to help solve this issue. Thanks.

Since you can get Odin to work you may try to upgrade to stock ICS. Will likely clear the bootlooping.

Apart from getting the fastboot to work, all that was needed was a simple fastboot -w. Reboot device (fastboot reboot) and you're back to original state.
