Has anyone successfully 'recovered' their TAB from this problem?
I currently have CWM v188.8.131.52 installed with CM 11 (can't recall which version).
Just to summarise. the TAB is rebooting at bootscreen, loading screen, or within 20 seconds of loading into Android. It only actually successfully boots into the OS every 10 times or so.
I can boot into recovery or download mode. It will go through the motions of wiping data/cache/dalvik, but does not actually do it even though it says it has. I can even select install from ZIP to (re)install a new recovery or ROM. Again, it goes through the motions and says it was successful, when it still does not.
I can connect Odin (tried 3.07, 3.09, 3.10) and flash a new recovery or ROM. Again, the same result. It says it has worked when it hasn't. No error messages.
Last lines of the recovery log are:
I:Checking for extendedcommand...
I:Skipping execution of extendedcommand, file not found...
I:Cannot load volume /misc.
I:Can't partition non mmcblk device: /devices/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.0/mmc_host/mmc1
I have also tried communicating with it using ADB, but no success. If the TAB is off, then adb will show a device connected, but if it is on (in recovery or download), then it doesn't see it.
I have not tried repartitioning using a PIT file yet...that's next on the list.
EDIT: Have just re-read (all) of the previous posts. Looks like it might be a faulty eMMC
Ok it sounds to me like you maybe at one time installed a dual boot rom or Ubuntu touch and added the second bootable partition and are getting stuck on it. I did the Ubuntu touch and also tried dualbooting roms and had problems with booting to the right partitions so try to remove any bootable or cloned partitions other than the one that is used for the OS normally. This has to be the reason you are stuck on wrong rom so try to boot into other partition or find the dualbooting rom you installed if that is the case so you can use the uninstaller of the dualbooting recovery's. Also look for the option in your recovery that may be labled boot to other rom or find the option in advanced menu.
At last bet boot into your cm rom that works and disable persistence, then reboot to recovery and go to advanced options and disable recovery flash and be sure to disable the update cwm recovery option if it exists in the settings of the rom.
Remember flashing success with no actual results means your flashing to unknown partition!! Find that scallywag!!! LOL
