Default [Q] Stuck at boot

Please advise what should I do now,

My N5100 stuck at boot, the part where is shows "Samsung GALAXY Note 8.0 GT-N5100", it just stuck there and not boot.
I tried boot into recovery and reset still no use.

I can boot into Download mode as well as PhilZ Touch Recovery though.

What should I flash using Odin to make my Note 8 back to normal again?

Really thanks alot for the guide.

I have been able to get passed the lockup by holding the up volume button after powering on.

keep it held until you get to the lock screen. About a 2 minute wait.

I have had similar. For me it just reboots into the custom recovery all the time.

Default One way would be to flash a new ROM using Android Toolkit

Hi, this happened to me once and what I did is quite drastic, but I flashed a new ROM, as other methods for me simply didn't work ... the time it took to redownload my apps and set up the note 8.0 was minimal compared to the frustration I was having with note 8.0.

I put a rom (omni rom in my case, or you could use whatever you want such as a backup of your old rom) on my sdcard and just flashed it using my recovery (which is twrp, and which I could boot into). Since you can boot into PhilZ recovery, this method might work if you want to do it.

One last thing, the title of my reply mentions the android toolkit (which is now the skipsoft unified android toolkit). I did not have a rom on my device, so I used the toolkit to put a zip file of a rom on my device.

Hope this helps,

What did you do before it got stuck at boot, did you try clearing dalvik cache?
