Default [Q] Unrooted Galaxy Tab 2 P5113, boot loop, can't presently install recovery utility

Hello,

I've a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that I've had for more than a year.

Recently, in the last few weeks, it's developed a boot loop. In my many attempts to fix this, I've tried to put the samsung factory fresh ROM in it (P5113XACCLK7_XAC) that didn't work using ODIN 1.85, Heimdall, and never could get a good connection with Kies. I've tried to install different recovery utilities (Philz, CWM, recovery-clockwork, etc). When it boots into recovery mode, it shows the android robot and then an 'installing package' message briefly followed by a dead-android robot with a red warning sign with a 'command not found' error.

In the Android System Recovery <3e> mode, when I clear cache partition .. I get the same dead-robot error graphic with 'Error' as the message and the tablet goes back into boot-loop. When I select 'wipe data/factory reset' .. I get the same dead-robot error with the 'No Command' error message and it goes back into the Android System Recovery menu.

This tablet is behaving as if it has an unwritable file system..

Right now, I'd do just about anything to get this back to normal ROM.

Suggestions?

Thanks a lot

Tyler

I am not sure if this will work for you but Odin v1.85 never worked for my P5110. I had to use Odin v3.07.
