Hi im new to this really i recently got the tab 4 and needed to root it so i can mirror my screen with the chrome-cast doggle for an application xbmc . I found guide on internet to use Odin to root it and ive used Odin before to root a few phones but when i tried to use the PDA option within ordin to apply the tar file that was in zip - CF-Auto-Root.tar the process started but then failed for some reason. The device then said i need to kies to emergency firmware restore but kies 3 said it does not support my device. Ive been looking for solution on net to no joy and now device must of died or somit but all i get is black screen and wont turn on. please help....
Which Tab4 do you have? Tmobile? If so I have a zip file you can use to odin back to stock. I had the same thing happen to me when I tried to root. Once it gets to that point, kies doesn't seem to function. But odin still recognizes the device. I have an SM-T337T. Let me know.
MY galaxy tab 4 is the wifi version model SM-T230 and ive been trying to get stock file even tho its at that screen where it says
Firmware upgrade uncounted an issue. please select recovery mode in kies and try again.
its still in download mode so odin will fix it in theory. i downloaded this file named ;
T230NUUEU0ANE2_T230NUXAC0ANE2_HOME.tar.md5 but think its for another model coz of the NU after T230 that never worked and been looking for my model to to avail and im still green when you come to this i feel like im out my depth.
now when i connect it to kies it says device not supported and screen flashes on off. im using a win xp machine will that make any difference aswell.
