Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked before, basically a few weeks ago I was having problems with my Tab 2 p3110, it just wasn't running right. At around the same time I ordered an EZCAST hdmi device for my tv.

Well, I used Odin and cwm and taught myself how to upgrade to kitkat withCM11 nightlies, great stuff, fixed the issues I was having.

Then my tv dongle arrived, the one feature I wanted to use more than anything was screen mirror/AirPlay. No you can imagine my dismay when I couldn't even find the option in cm11, I found cast screen but it wouldn't work.

So, having tried several nightlies hoping the problem would be fixed I settled on reinstalling the stock 4.2.2 rom following the instructions on here. It bricked my tab 2 but I managed to get it going again and reinstalled the stock rom after several days of trying.

All this to find the screen mirror option was not available on the stock rom!! I can't figure out why but thought, maybe, an upgrade was needed, so I headed to the update tab to be told that my device was modified, updates are not available!

To be honest I'm ready to throw it in the lake behind my house I'm that frustrated, does anyone have any suggestions on getting screen mirroring working?

Here... get the clean firmware here. It will give a pure system that won't trip the modification check.

It will also give you the factory recovery system.

Look up the p311x PIT file and when in odin pick the size that matches your tablet.

If it hangs at boot try doing a factory reset from recovery.

That's what worked for me to allow me to check updates.

I can't say that this will fix screen mirror, since I've never used it or seen the option on my p3113

Didn't work, still saying that the device has been modified and in download mode shows "count 1"

Any other ideas?

Hey, I use my tablet with the Samsung Smart View ap.

You must have the right samsung tv for it to work and it's not perfect, but it is a nice feature. I stopped updating my tab because this is the most important feature for me.

I rooted my device and have the same issue as you, that's how I came across this thread.
