Hello all, I am new to the android community as well as the devices, which was probably a major factor in the coming of my current predicament. Anyways, i recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, running Android KitKat 4.4.2 . I attempted to root the device using ODIN v3.07 and CF auto root that was meant for the model SM-T320, whereas my model is SM-T230. So in the middle of the process, Odin said it failed and it stuck in download mode. When I tried to reset it, it came up to the screen in the pictures below. I have attempted using the firmware update from Kies 3, but i get an error message saying that the device cannot be updated. I have downloaded two different versions of the SM-T230's supposed firmware and have attempted to "flash" the device using these files, however to no avail. The error message is in the pictures below. Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

Think you might be in the wrong device section.

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...

Sorry for poor gramma, i shall lon on pc now

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
