[Q] I have a Tab that was partially restored from the ICS flashing brick. Advice?
I have a GT-P6210 from Canada (No IR) and back when it was Honeycomb I had no problems with it.
When the ICS rom appeared I installed it and it worked for a while. However, I accidentally wiped from the stock recovery, which we now all know causes a brick. At the time, CWM was only a temporary recovery and it wouldn't accept my HC backups (different partitions?) so I went crazy trying to fix it.
I was able to flash a patched .pit but I couldn't complete the ICS flashing. It booted... to a screen saying that the "encryption" failed. I sent the tab to my uncle and he was able to flash ICS. This restored the tablet to a mostly working condition
- To flash ICS again. It didn't really work out for me.
- To flash CM9. It got stuck at the CM9 bootlogo.
- To flash a patched .pit and ICS.
However, because of the patched .pit I flashed earlier, it only has ~800MB of internal storage.
Now, I was thinking about my next step. Should I try to reflash the original .pit and Honeycomb then hope that I get lucky while wiping with stock HC recovery? Should I try to flash JB? Should I use the original .pit and flash JB? Should I just try to live with the fact that I'll be stuck with this problem until I get a new tablet in a few years? Please advice.
EDIT: If I use Mobile ODIN to flash, say, HC from ICS, will that work?
EDIT 2: When I flashed a patched .pit I didn't use emmc_find_brick_start.zip and emmc_find_brick_end.zip and I just randomly went with a patched .pit for the device.
EDIT 3: Say if I flash PA in the tab's current state
, will it crash and go boom or I'll have a ~800MB PA experience?
