Thumbs up Reconnect usb when stuck on SetupConnection flashing Samsung T210R

This was very useful to me

I have a Samsung ST210R HW revision 05. It has been very flaky and lately Google Play simply didn't work anymore. Factory reset didn't help. So I started looking for alternatives

Now, the device is also flaky while trying to flash! Since I run Linux Mint, tried flashing a ClockworkMod with heimdall but "heimdall print-pit" worked only once, ever. I attached the resulting .pit informational file in case it could help someone.

Then I fired up Virtualbox with Windows XP in it, and tried many different root recipes all around the net, but it always got stuck on SetupConnection, using Odin 3.07.

This is how I made it work at last:
1 "Powered down" the XP virtual machine
2 Added a USB filter to that XP machine so that my SAMSUNG T210R would always be [mentally] connected to the machine upon physical connection to the host machine
3 Started up the XP virtual machine again
4 Downloaded files described in this article: www dot ibtimes dot co dot uk/galaxy-tab370-root-android412-jellybean-wifi-smt210-501118 (you need to be human to understand this link)
5 Started Odin, selected the prerooted.tar.md5, unticked Automatic Reboot and pressed Start.
6 Stuck on SetupConnection
7 Disconnected thanks to your post although both the tablet and Odin says this is not very smart
8 Odin complained "removed!"
9 Reconnected the tablet
10 Odin reported "Added!"
11 Pressed Start again and eyyyy! it works.
12 Thought bad things about Samsung and Odin unstability/flakyness

Again, thanks a lot! I now have a rooted T210

You need to try different versions of Odin. I have 4 versions. If one doesn't read it, try another.
