Install first the older twrp in zip.
Then, boot in the old twrp and select Install > Install image and select the .img file you downloaded
Good morning again,
Thanks all who helped solve the problem, since it now works like a charm!
While for a while it seemed that it was getting from bad to worse... I finally solved it....
First I installed a cwrm backup from a year ago (there were 5 backups in the device that is why I did not have space left...)
This got me a normal working Android 4.4 and from there on it was easy sailing thanks to your help!
Now have the slimrom 6 working and I really cannot believe how smooth this build works, much faster than the 4.4...
So also a big hand for all that helped realize this rom!
Am contemplating buying another used Tab2 since it has a good battery life end nice screen and looks quite sturdy... But this one goed to my son... Hope he can play his games OK...
By the way is this the best build for this device or should I go Nougat?
First attempt to root/flash rom.
According to the instructions it said download odin 1.8. When I could not get past startup, something said download odin3. I current have odin3 3.10.6. I used it to download the .pit that came with 1.8.
I was locked into the tab 2 going into download mode. Could not get to recover for even a factory reset.
So I found something that said to use "espresso10_stock_childofthehorn.tar.md5". That downloaded using odin3. I am able to boot and go into recovery, but I get a <3e> dead android red triangle.
After many data wipes Still get the <3e> error.
First, I must have stumbled into download the first time. Now I know it is power and vol-, then press vol+.
After some more playing around and I am starting to connecting some more dots, I found a recovery imaged that work and gave me root with stock recovery.
It is "CF-Auto-Root-espresso10att-espresso10uc-samsungsghi497.tar.md5"
But, when I try and use it to update the rom, the verify files fail. From googling it seems I need a custom recovery. So where can I find a customer recover that works with espresso10uc?
That another thing that confuses me, it boots with the ATT logo.
Let me give a little more context for what I am going to use it for and it might matter what I do.
My home automations is Homeassistant running on a Raspberry Pi 3. There is a dashboard that is basically a web page. Lot of guys use tables on the wall for UI. If I could link, I could give better context.
So I need to start a browser in kiosk mode. All I need is WiFi, no cell.
Any time two techies talk, the first 1 hour is just getting the jargon, thanks for being patient while I go through the process.
