I'm having this problem past few days, tried all the links in the Q/A section, dev.. all links were dead.. and managed to found solutions for this problem.

Basically, the tab will stuck on "Samsung" logo and looping for eternity... tried to reflash the rom, wipe system and everything via odin.. will results the same thing...and I thought I'm gonna say good bye forever for my note 10.1 (n8000)...or send for repair (which samsung quoted me ~ $158 for the "board replacement"... but until I found how to get it alive... actually I've no idea what causing my n8000 stuck in the first place..

After a whole day "intensive" searching and everything.. almost all files links in xda were dead.. and finally I found out all the files and solutions..

What you'll need
> Odin 3.xx, can get from samfirmware website
http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/download/30977/N8000XXUDNE5_N8000OLBDNE3_XME/
> Samsung drivers
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=961956
> note 10.pit and efs (extract the efs.rar after download, yes it's i9300 but can be used)
> n8000 rom, can get from http://www.sammobile.com/ or development section. I prefer flashable rom in recovery such as android revolution HD, and place it in microsd.
> Philztouch CWM

(files as attached)

Steps to do the recovery
1. Download odin and extract
2. Download drivers and install.
3. Run Odin, place the following files
- click the PIT button, select the note10.pit.
- click the CSC, and select the previously extracted efs.rar..it should be efs.tar now
- click on AP, for custom recovery, such as philz.. or official rom..up to you.
4. Tick the following menus in Odin
- Re-Partition (optional, some users said no need to tick this would do as well)
- Phone bootloader update
- Phone EFS clear
5. Place your n8000 in download mode, and connect via USB.
6. Click on START button.. and hopefully success.
7. Once finishes, reboot into recovery mode (those who flash rom via Odin can skip this), and install the rom zip file.

Everything should be fine now and your n8000 should able to start properly... that's how I managed to "resurrect" my n8000 tho... hope these helps... mine was n8000 16GB, 3G/Wifi version

The phone is stuck at the Samsung logo! Odin doesn't detect it!!!

This thread saved me the last time I had this problem with "stuck at samsung logo". Now, I'm facing the same problem but I can't get Odin to flash at all.

I see the device being added in Odin but when I press start It always fails within a second. It seems to fail at the first thing it needs to do. So if I check "nand erase" or "erase partition" this is the first steps it takes and it fails there. If I uncheck these it fails at the same moment as it starts to flash the .img/bin file.

My kids have beein using the note the last coule of years and it's been thru some rough handling. I'm trying to decide if this is a hardware fault or if I'm just doing something wrong in the flashing process?

I have this problem, and i resolve this situation with this solution, but now i have another problem, i lost the funcionality Phone, i think i lost the imei e someone else. How can i restore my efs? I have a backup of my efs in format zip and format tar made 5 years ago, but i can not install via Odin or via Twrp, said Invalid Zip format on checking Digest File. I think the problem is checking the md5 generation that is not compatible with Odin and Twrp.
Someone can help me to restore the /efs partition with old backup. Thanks

Turn off md5 checking in twrp .
Try Philz recovery .
How did you back up EFS in the first place restore using same method .

I restored my backed up EFS folder, but after this i lose access to Wifi. I can see wifi networks but i can not connect.

Now, i did not have Internet, i did not have wifi neither access via modem because i have a bad idea to put another efs to recover wifi. I clean manualy efs, and reboot system and put the files via root manager.

Thanks

    Hello, i have also this issue with the galaxy note 10.1 gt-n8020, its stucks on samsung logo and doesnt go any further...i dont have a custom firmware neither the tablet its rooted, i tried with odin having the original firmware but when i press start, after the msg "Start write to NAND" i get a FAIL and ends there. Even with the method mentioned here, still i get the FAIL msg...any Info on this on what might be the cause and maybe a possible fix?Can this be also hardware related malfunction?I cant go into recovery mode, only download mode works...

    Yes, that md5 was used.....

    I've went completely by procedure described in first post, with exception of i9300_repair_efs change as mentioned. For that part, I've used latest Odin downloaded from Samsung web, and for bootloader, I've used Odin 3.05, just to be sure, since there is a button with "Bootloader" written on it :)

    Sorry but I didn't get it clear!!:confused:
    Did you use i9300_repair_efs.tar for AP and left CSC empty?
    Did you flash a stock rom or a recovery after that?
    Did you Ticked Re-Partition ,Phone bootloader update ,Phone EFS clear ,F.Reset Time or Auto Reboot?
    please provide the right steps you've used one by one.:(

    Used i9300_repair_efs.tar for both CSC and AP, after that installed android revolution.
    Can't remember everything that was ticked, but was going step by step according to guide in the first post, with i9300_repair_efs.tar change.

    Sammobile is official.
    Flash firmware reboot then flash custom recovery .The flash custom rom.
    First back up your EFS .
