Hi to resolve this is really simple, please download the corrodponding firmware, your tab 4 will show an update firmware error, but is infact in odin mode... simply select the .tar/md5 file and insert it to pda and click start...

ok so recently iv encountered the same problem, with a good easy solution, if you look carefully on the update error screen that you are facing, in the top left it says odin mode.........
the next steps are simple......
download the current SM-T230 firmware from here: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=33745
Assumming you are in uk or a europien country, ( there is currently no uk firmware updateable via kies ) so please use the nordick firmware. (its excatly the same, i have both )
Download odin 3.7 from here : http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...74115972,d.d2k
Once you have downloaded the firmware you will need to unzip the file to somewhere easy to find, i would suggest the desktop. locate and run odin 3.7 and point the PDA tab to your recently unzipped firmware file and click start.... odin will do its thing and complete the firmware update process......
HOPE THIS HELPS THE GUYS THAT ARE HAVING PROBLEMS......... LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GOT ON
