I didn't think there was anyway to brick Samsung tablets but it seems I've at least semi bricked my T500. I was attempting to install the LOS 18.1 ROM that was just posted in the guides thread. I did something wrong and got the "can only flash official" warning. Made the big mistake of flashing the official AP only. Now I can no longer get into recovery OR download. Even holding vol up and down and then plugging in USB doesn't work. Screen just remains blank. Same with holding vol up and power. Nothing. Can only boot to system.
