Hello,
I write this call for help after many searchs on internet, without success ... I own a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5110, I recently wanted to install android 4 on it, but it turns that i was wrong version ; that i took was for the galaxy p5100...
Seeing it wasn't working (blocked on bootscreen), i installed, by odin, a stock rom from samsung, to start from scratch.
And there, the trouble began...
Tablet remained blocked on startup (with samsung logo), i left load for 3 days, without success. I went into the recovery, wanting to do a factory reset, i got the message "E: unable to mount '/efs' ". I tried many stocks roms, repartitioned with pit file .. And nothing
I unfortunately didn't backup of folder "efs" (i didn't know what it is before this problems), and i saw it wasn't well seen to ask other's backups, yet i don't see any other solutions ... Especially since my tablet is devoid of any smart operator (because imei is problematic in general) .. Therefore not possible blacklisting .. Finally, if there another solution i haven't seen ... HELP !!
Good evening with your tablets that work........

PS : Sorry for my english, i'm french ...
