But for the life of me, I am not having any luck loading a ROM on my P5210. Here are the steps I have taken and the status.
Power up in to Download mode - Success
Odin 3.07 - Success
TWPR recovery loaded - Success
Loaded STOCK-deodexed-rooted-GTP5210-4.2.2.zip to my SDcard - Success
Renamed STOCK-deodexed-rooted-GTP5210-4.2.2.zip to root.zip - Success
Power up into TWRP - Success
Here is where things go wrong (I think)
Selected INSTALL from TWRP
Found root.zip on my SDcard
Swiped to confirm
"Updating partition details..."
Flashing file 1 of 1
I seem to remember reading some where that this needs to be a "clean flash" and not a "dirty flash". I took that to me that the tab must be devoid of its current Rom. I am not sure so I do not what to do anything that will brick my Tab. So far no damage has been done and with that, I will continue, I hope, with guidance from the experts here.
Now, if there is a link I need to read (and I have searched high and low for one, or more) then please direct. Otherwise, I think there is a simple answer or something I am skipping or not doing. If you see right away what it is, PLEASE tell me. LOL
So I will wait and hopefully I can get this thing going. I do believe I am ROOTED because I do have access to SuperSU. But I cannot do anything like remove apps I do not need. Maybe I need to download something to do that, but I was hoping to just say "delete" and be done with it.
Android is an OS I am not yet comfortable with to be able to just do things like I do in Windows.
Thanks tons and as aways, sorry to have to have someone repeat which I am sure there is tons of info on already.
