Hi,

New to this, so be gentle!! My sons Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) appears to frozen on the boot screen (beyond the animated logo). Having googled for cause/resolution, it sounds like it needs flashing if that's the right term. I can boot to the download menu e.g. Odin etc, but am having trouble finding a firmware download. Have tried both Sammobile & Updato, and can find the right download, but for the life of me, cannot download from either site on the free membership. Even tried the premium memberships but both websites seem to be broken when it comes to completing any transaction.

Any pointers, advice etc will be most welcome.

Rgds

You can obtain the Firmware for the SM-T560 on the following link...

https://samfrew.com/model/SM-T560/

... All you need to do is select the devices specific region from the first screen on the above link.

That website is a decent one and I've never had an issue with the older firmware I had grabbed from it.

Also, the following area of the forum is specific to your device and variants as well.

Good Luck!

Hi Ibuprohen,

Thanks so much for the pointers & links. Found the correct firmware and d/l Odin, applied the update, but now the tablet is stuck at the " Android is upgrading - finishing boot" stage. Have even left overnight, but is still stuck at this point. Either something is broken or I've done something wrong.

Any suggestions welcome, otherwise I have a nice little white glass & plastic coaster

Cheers,

Dave
