Ever since I saw this thread, I was curious about OMAP flasher. Could it be ported as a way to unbrick some of the people with tabs that show, "no driver found for OMA4430" on USB connection? Last night, I finally found a working link to OMAPFlash in post 46 of this thread. I tried to create a new config for the p5113, but I'm not sure it will work. Could someone with a hard-bricked p5xxx please try it on his or her device? Here are the instructions:
  1. go to the directory of the downloaded files.
  2. shift-right-click and choose open command window here
  3. go into device manager and right-click on OMAP4430. Click choose a file on the disk, and go to the OMAPFlash Recovery p5113/usb_drv_windows.
  4. once the driver is installed, go to the command prompt and type
    Code:
    OMAPFlash.exe -v fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  5. copy the text from the command prompt and put it on this thread.

Here's the OMAPFlash download:

V2: for p5100 ONLY

I hope someone donating me a hard bricked P31xx or P51xx Thinking about flashing standard OMAP4 x-loader and u-boot. Booting standard Ubuntu Desktop from Linaro project will be super cool

Re: [DISCUSSION] Unbrick using OMAP flasher
I think I know what the problem is. Unfortunately, I have to wait for the stock ROM to download. In the meantime, does anyone know if all the tabs use the same bootloader?

Re: [DISCUSSION] Unbrick using OMAP flasher
Also, is your tab 8gb or 16gb?

From Samsung x-loader source, all Tab 2 using the same config file. I build the bootloader but the resulted MLO file much smaller than the stock MLO and too scare to trying it on my device.

I'm not sure what problem you are trying to solve. but I can't see how this would have any effect on the EMMC brick bug
