[Q] Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Tablet refuses to initialize after reset
I've got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (P5113), wi-fi only. About a month or so back, I got stuck in a reboot loop, where the tablet would simply reboot itself (almost) constantly. I hadn't installed any new apps or done anything of note to 'trigger' this, that I was aware of. Finally I got fed up and did a system reset.
This seemed to fix the rebooting issue, but introduced a new issue: I would, upon startup of the tablet, get a message that stated: "com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly". Everything would work fine after that, except for the small detail that I couldn't open my settings. When I attempted to click on Settings, it would clear to the home screen, but nothing would happen after that.
I assumed I could deal with that for a little while, but we just moved and I needed to get the tablet to connect to our new wifi. Without Settings, I didn't have any way to connect, so I decided to try another factory reset, hoping it would fix the issue. That's left me where I'm at now:
The system boots to the Samsung Setup wizard, but I immediately get that same error "com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly", and it's followed by another error, which says "Unfortunately, Samsung SetupWizard has stopped". Therefore, I can't get the tablet running again, in any meaningful way.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd really rather not just assume it's broken if it's not, but I'm at a bit of a loss.
