Tried TWRP and Phillz with the same. When flashing tried Odin and sideload. I can\t use internal memory as I can\t stop my tab from rebooting. Tried to flash original firmware with Odin 1.85, it completes successfully but when it reboots I got the old ROM functioning with the same frequent reboot.

Tried to flash PIT file as I doubt data partition is not accessible, with official firmware but I got CM as usual.

Recovery log shows that /emmc can not be mounted. It maybe the problem

All processes complete successfully with no errors, but I got the old ROM functioning as if I was doing nothing. Can you guys help me with that?

ROM: CyanogenMod cm 10.1.3 with android version 4.2.2
kernel 3.0.31-CM-gac1803e
Recovery: CWM

This is exactly what happen to me now...

I'm just put my tab away about 4 days ago... then it started reboot

It's PASSED when using odin 1.85 / 1.87... but FAILED when using odin 3.XX to flash firmware...

I've tried wipe cache/data... and flash CWM.. Philz... even PIT.... nothing change...

I'm considering to bring my tab to the service center....

Hi LuCeiFeR

Thanks for the information. Are you going to get the mainboard replaced? I can immagine that buying a new tablet is nearly as expensive.
Is the breakdown of the mainbord the result of flashing by the way?

I think I can conclude that my GT is broken also. Pitty

I recommend that you get your GT to the nearest service centre to lookup for more solutions as I doubt it is the mainboard. I brought my GT to a service centre and they concluded that it is the mainboard. I think more it is the emmc part which should be replaced, not the whole mainboard. In response to your question, we accepted the fact that we can brick our devices the moment we decided to play around with official firmwares. This too is not wrong. But I think that the Tab 2 was not ready enough neither equipped with the right parts to handle kitkat and later versions. I,m saying that despite the fact that I have 2 GT-P5100 which I got barely at the same time. One got bricked and the other functioning well with TWRP. That leads to the weired mix of CWM 6.0.2 and cm 10. I will do more researches and will post here. Good luck.
