Default [Q] Recovery starting from scratch...

Hi guys,

I bought my P6810 equipped with the 3.xxx version.
I first upgraded to the 4.0xxx
I then upgraded to the 4.1xx version, and a little while ago I upgraded to the 4.2.2 version.

I then started to have problems with my emails and also started to have memory issues (not installing upgrades because of apparent memory shortages...

So I wanted to revert to a previous version. I must have made a mistake. Now it starts up until I get the Samsung (glowing) lettering and then it stalls (but the processors though because the device turns rather hot locally).

Is there any way I can start from a clean slate ? restarting the device and rebuilding the OS from scratch ?

This all would not have been necessary had Samsung brought out the upgrades they were supposed to and had they delivered some good software befitting their very good device !!!

Any help ? otherwise my device is for the dirtbin...

Default Complete new installation

Hi, is there really no one that can help me?
To reinstall a pc you start off by partitioning, formatting, installing the OS,...
But how to do this with a Android tablet?
My device boots, shows the swirling logo and then switches to the glowing Samsung logo, only to stall there until the battery runs out.
I have tried reinstalling a original and stock android version several times using odin, to no avail.
I don't know what else to do.

Please, help anyone?

Kind regards,
