Hello,

I rooted my device routed sm-t217a. I messed up my framework-res.apk in framework folder. I edited the apn file under xml and I had it put back on the device. I installed the apk by clicking on it. Now this tablet after it boots up shows "unfortunately the process com android phone has stopped". I have tried everything. I can not do anything on the tablet unless it is in recover mode. I tried all option under recovery. However no luck. Any help would be appreciated how I can fix this issue.

Samsung Tab 3 SM-T217A At&T

I can get to download mode, but I can not get my hands on the original rom for sm-t217a. Do you where I can get one so I cant try odin?

Angry maybe
I'd would try tmobile or sprints firmware. i flashed tmobile to my t217s today and it worked. besides the modem flash and no signal. then i restored my backup thru twrp recovery after re-rooting. hopefully you backed up your rom in recovery. under t217s flash you can easily root your tab with kingo app. with tmobile you can flash sprints version of twrp & supersu through odin. good luck

I cant not connect to kies it wont successfully connect. Mtp driver fails to install. I tried 3 different computers and it wont install. Connecting my functional samsung s4 works. So for tab 3 my options seem be to in recovery mode either through adb or odin. But no one seems to have att version of rom. I dont have a back up version of my rom/firmware. Any other suggestions. If I run tmobile will the unit be functional? At least under tmobile? Any other suggestion?

This might be stupid to ask, I have another same device. Can I backup that device and restore on this device, the one that is messed up?

Out of desperation getting my tab3 going again, and locked into just recovery mode I tried this workaround.

Try this at your own risk - Just something I did, and worked in my situation to get the phone to boot again.

I flashed Philz Touch Recovery, and it managed to get the Tabs life blood flowing again.

Here is a link to the thread - Good Luck - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2201860

P.S - I just used the md5 file I already had for my Galaxy S3, and got lucky - Since I didn't see Tab3 7" on his list.

Dumb Luck I Know
