Hi!

Here Is a problem of epic proportions!

Model: GT-P3100 (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 wifi+3G)
Kernel No.: 3.0.31-13044325
Android Version: 4.1.2

My Tab used to switch off automatically since the last 2 weeks. Yesterday the Tab started updating its OS automatically. During the update, the tab switched off and the update failed. The Tab restarted however and continued the update process.

The update completed, the tab switched on and then a message popped up that update failed. Since then, Google Play Store, Messaging, Bluetooth, Connecting to PC via wire doesnít work. Keyboard and calculator is missing. Apps wont install or update due to error -110.
The keyboard is no longer there. After lot of research and trying various solutions all over the internet, nothing worked and I reset the tab. Problems only escalated.

Now I have a tab that is not connected to any google account, since I cannot type. Side loading keyboard or any other apps donít work since google play store fails. Non-play store apps donít load too for the same reason. And I cannot log in to google play store since neither keyboard nor voice to text works!

Note, the tab is already reset, so cache is all cleared and all system apps are enabled.

Any solutions please!? Anybody up for this challenge?

Hi Sharingan!

Yes I was thinking about this, but my device is not recognized by my PC when connected through the USB cable. Ever since the crash, I am unable to connect it to the PC. The question is...will I be able to Flash with this problem?

Tired that already. Device drivers updated. Extra cables used. Same result.

Today I spoke with technicians at the local Samsung repair center. They said not to even think of flashing with ODIN given the current status of the tab. It will turn the tab into paperweight. It seems they have other solutions. I will be sending it to them. Hopefully it will be resolved.

Alright. So i gave my tab to the local Samsung service center. They asked me to sign a waiver since they too were unsure if the tab could be revived. It took them a short while and they were able to Re-install (?) the stock OS that came with the tab when purchased. I think they just uninstalled the updates. This was the early ice cream sandwich where the screenshot shortcut was readily available in the bottom left corner and the notification panel on the bottom right.

So after travelling for 25 km, spending 25 minutes and 25 dollars....the problem was solved and now I have my all time fav ICS version to go with it. Not updating ever again!
