I see a lot of users asking for pit file for T210/R 8GB after bricking their partition table due to a bad flash, i see here to share it.

This pit file is extracted from rooted Tab 3 T210/R 8GB .

Unzip attached zip and flash pit file along with stock firmware in odin.


...Do not flash it if there is no need to...

Flash it if Odin says: "there is no pit partition" or "Re-Partition operation failed", in this case "Re-Partition" must be marked.


!Flash it at your own risk and responsibility!

Do they use the same partition table since they're both 8GB?

edit: And if your PIT is messed up already, you can't hurt anything by trying it. As long as it provides enough space for everything that needs to be installed, I would expect it to be fine.

From what I can tell, the PITs are exactly the same. "dev/block/mmcblk1" and "mmcblk1p*" (the "p*" refers to the partition #)are the external microSD card. Mine has 3 partitions: Link2sd and swap.
So, based on these findings, I would try this PIT file if I needed to for my T210R. But again, flash at your own risk

Using a PIT file assumes you also have a ROM to flash.
In the attached pic, Box 1 should show "COM: ##" when your device is connected and in download mode.
Box 2 is highlighting the "Re-partition" box. It needs to be checked, otherwise Odin won't rewrite the PIT.
Box 3 is clicking "PIT" and selecting the PIT file downloaded from this forum.
Box 4 is selecting your ROM for your device: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-3/general/tab-3-7-0-sm-t210-r-stock-4-4-2-kitkat-t2930075
Since the ROM referenced in that link is stock all the way, I would try flashing it first without using the PIT, then using the PIT if it fails.
Box 5 is clicking the "Start" button and waiting.

Good luck to you :)

@Greaper88
thank you for sharing
please can you share pit partition of your 210R (i guess it is the same as 210, but to be sure)
use this command to extract it (in adb shell or terminal emulator):
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/out.pit bs=8 count=481 skip=2176
zip the output and attached to a post

I have tried my best to follow this tutorial but it hasn't fixed my Galaxy Tab 3 - SM-T210. This is the error message I'm getting. Can anyone spot what I'm doing wrong?
