If you have any free time at all could you possibly update TWRP to 2.8? - http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...port-and-more/

In regards to TWRP 2.8.0.0,
I just compiled it, but the MTP feature does not work. It appears that TWRP is setting up an MTP connection, but it is not recognized correctly by the PC. This seems to be an issue with many devices right now.

Also, since the MTP feature is enabled by default on boot into recovery, it prevents adb commands from working until it is toggled by the user.

I think I will hold off releasing for a little longer to see if they come up with a fix.

2.8.0.0 not working verry well on Tab 2. Best TWRP have been 2.6.3 compiled in January.

On 2.8 also sometimes TWRP seems to crash ui sometimes - touch not working correctly then. meight be related to MTP changes. Happened to me after wipeing everything Incl. Internal storage. Also reported by some user.

I used this method to root my Tab 3 8.0 and save backups. I tried one custom Rom as well a while back (Paranoid Android) but missed some of the native features. I need to send my Tab back because of a hardware issued (buttons stopped working). How do I re-flash the stock bootloader? (I did try searching for this info.) I have gr8nole's version of Odin.

Just download the stock firmware from sammobile.com and flash with Odin.

Thanks! The problem I'm running into is that there is no U.S KitKat Stock firmware on sammobile.com. Canada seems to be the closest. I tried an older U.S firmware and I get an "invalid magic string" error. I'll probably try the Canadian firmware since I can always go back to TWRP if it doesn't work.

(BTW I'm also a Virginia Seminole fan. Went to FSU for grad school, live in Williamsburg)

The Cellular South version is for the US. I have no idea why they list it as Cellular South, but it is the US version for T310 (wifi only).

NOTE: The new MTP feature of TWRP causes issues with ADB access while in recovery. You may need to toggle "Disable MTP" a from the "mounts" menu to get ADB access.
