Thank you

I am glad I found this I just got mine a week ago and was in a hurry to root it so I could play around and in doing so I spaced off making a backup. So again thanks your a lifesaver. Can do the updates then back it up before I root it again. You happen to know of any good roms for this tablet?

my tab 3 t210 doesnt let me choose any usb mode MTP or PTP. and doesnt let me uncheck Developer options -> usb debugging. When i try to do these, my tab restarts and panic mode comes. would this subject solve my problem?

After I rooted my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7" using prerooted.tar.md5, I had the same issue. The screen kept flickering and now I want to unroot to go back to the original manufacturing setting. I just flashed this firmware and it restored to the original condition except the flickering problem still exists. Please help.

unbrick my galaxy tab 3 10.1 P5200

First I greatly appreciate this forum; you may actually be able to help - - - -
Apparently I may have turned my Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 P5200 into a brick; my battery was below 50%, and it asked me if I wanted to update my IAP? - -somewhat of a novice in this regards, said yes, immediately asked me to connect my charger, after I did the power was not charging and continued to drop. Now it will not charge at all - - -no battery prompt, no screen, no nothing, went completely dead. My question is how can I restore power to my TAB 3? I have tried most of the suggestions from google sites; and an IT friend of mine indicated this sounds like a firmware issue and I would have to send to manufacture - - -I purchased it 1 1/2 months ago brand new; I LOVE MY GALAXY TAB 3; currently in a war zone and it would take forever to send back and get back; can someone give me some hope on restoring power so I do not have to send back . . .Thanks to all of you, be safe.

    It's the "program will install the drivers for your device" part that I can't get past. How? Thank you for attempting to help me!
    It's okay. files that will leave here, is all I can give you, download the executable file and install it on your computer, "NOTE" is not necessary to connect the device to your computer, the program will install the drivers for the device, after finish installing drivers, download and run odin, now put your tablet into download mode then press the start button, vol -, and power, when the warning message appears, press vol +, now connect the device to your computer, odin should detect your device, the rest I guess you already know to do, right ?.

    Question, does this remove cwm?

    Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using XDA Premium 4 mobile app

    It should restore the entire device even stock recovery
