[Q] Help! Boot Loop/Bricked SM-T320
I got an SM-T320 in a trade on craigslist. The individual who traded it to me had rooted and installed CWM on it and removed a bunch of the applications from the stock device. I was attempting to return it to stock utilizing Odin on VMware Fusion Windows 7 Ultimate. I was following steps I had found elsewhere in the XDA forum for this and had downloaded the appropriate firmware. The process began running but failed at:
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
At this point the device indicates that a failed install had occured and to use Kies to do a recovery, that did not work.
When searching odin failed system.img.ext4 I found a couple hits from a few years ago that VMware would not work for this due to a usb timing issue. I then attempted to use Heimdall and it will not save the PIT file it times out during the process.
Any input would be nice, I have rooted and installed custom roms in the past but have not had much experience with it the past few years, I was simply trying to return the device to stock and now it will not even go into recovery.
Thanks in advance.
