Probably cause by build.prop, the build.prop included is for SM-T210, if you can give me build.prop for T210R I may be able to restore your device

I modified my build.prop (for sm t211, 3g) according the one in your zip file. Substituted it and flashed the mod. Following the instructions, after reboot the tablet works fine

Attached is my build.prop modified
thanks
