GT-N8013
Blue/Gray
16GB Wifi Only Model

I was watching a youtube video, my tablet froze for an hour, died, then I let it charge and it rebooted into the samsung logo. After that it decided to go white screen and goes to a white screen every time it's booted. I've been trying to resolve this on my own with various resources for about a month now.

I can get to ODIN mode no problem, but I can't flash anything. I have recently bought a new OEM Samsung USB cable and tried multiple versions of ODIN on two different machines. Directly connected to the motherboard and not USB 3.0 ports.

I think the solution to my problem may be answered:

Here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2268735

or

It is hard for me to comprehend the English used in the first link as I think Authors first language is not English. I think what he is saying is that if ODIN is not working then you have to flash the PIT file via adb and a SD card, but I cannot access Recovery, and I don't recall fully how to use ADB in Downloading Mode, if that's possible at all. He also states I may need to downgrade my bootloader version based on the last ROM that I had on my tablet. If someone could educate me on that I'd appreciate it.

The 2nd link says I need the stock firmware for my country(I live in the U.S. of A.) and to nand erase all but I feel like that should be used as a last resort. I did download both N8013UEALI3(4.0.4) & N8013UEUCMI3(4.1.2) from sammobile.com though.

When I try to flash just a Recovery/ROM, with Autoreboot checked, I get the PIT error message below:

<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..

Any assitance would be greatly appreciated, I've been without my tablet for a month now. I have any backup, I don't recall the ROM I flashed because it was so long ago, but I'm pretty sure the version was Jellybean. I know my recoevry was one of the later CWM TouchScreen Rom recoverys but I can't recall the version. Thanks for any help, please let me know what information I'm lacking or what I can do, thank you all for your time.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have tried to different PIT files for the PIT mapping and they both failed. Getting pretty desperate now. I can't even NAND Erase All, I gave that a shot and it failed:

When I select NAND Erase All, stock rom(4.0.4 or 4.1.2), Pit, & Re-Partition checked, Nand Erase all Checked, I get the following in ODIN 3.07 and 3.09:

<ID:0/003> Added!!

I'm starting to think its the ECCM and maybe I need a JTAG repair. Like I said before, I can't get into recovery, I just get a all white screen. When the tablet first died I got the Samsung logo and then it rebooted and went White, I never got the Samsung logo again. Any help please? Even if it's just recommendations for trusted JTAG repair sites, because I don't trust the ones I've found ths far. Or know PIT files that have worked for flashing on the N8013. Anything at all.

I found this article here: http://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23562

Exact same problem I am having, I think I'm going to need a JTAG repair. I just posted a request to get some fresh PIT files from multiple android versions. I ill keep posting updates on how this is going, I feel alone in this issue since no one has said anything but I get multiple views...but I see more and more people are starting to post in the help section for this particular brand of tablet in the past 3-5months, it sounds terrible but I'm glad I'm not alone since I feel like im talking to myself here.

Just contacted Mobiletechvideos guys, I hope they are legit. I'm will to pay $50 for a jtag repair if i can have this tablet back.

I've tried to use both ODIN & Heimdall. All files are failing for me. I tried stock 4.0.4 & 4.1.2 Roms, 3 different PIT files, I even tried to NAND erase all with a stock rom and ODIN continues to fail for me. I installed a virutal box on multiple machines running XP SP3 since windows 7/8 weren't working for me as well, that failed as well. When I try to flash the PIT files I get the output from ODIN in my OP, nothing is working for me. I'm just thinking I experienced instant death on this tablet for no reason at all. The most success i've had is with Heimdall just being able to reboot the tablet for me and then go back to Downloading mode, but nothing else is responding for me.

I'f I can get some fresh pit files from fully operational devices I will know that I've done everything I can excluding JTAG repair myself. If I can't get some fresh PIT files from multiple android versions, then I might just have to send it to the Mobiletechvideos guys to see if they can repair.

Thanks for the reply and interest in my issue!

To download a copy of your PIT all you have to do is install Heimdall, with zadig driver (Samsung/General Device) , boot your tablet into Download mode, and download a copy of your PIT by going to Heimdall Frontend, clicking utilites, and downloading and saving your PIT to your desktop(or where ever you want) and uploading it for me.

Heimdall can be found here: http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/

After you are down with Heimdall, make sure you uninstall the driver from "Device Manager" in your USB Devices, that way, you can use ODIN again. A;; of this should only take about 5-10mins, as all the files are really small. i really appreciate this.

Thank you for this post, that helps me alot, it appears it is beyond recovery via ODIN at this point. Thank you for taking the time to compare your PIT to the previous one. I will wait for Mobiletech to contact me back and post an update from there.

if you not under warenty I would maybe buy a used one on ebay that might just have a cracked screen, you might even find a 32GB one

onlysafonne, I have the same problem. I can use Odin and get to CWM but nothing I flash will get me past the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 image I cannot even get it to shut off. It will go black then power right back up.

I have flashed with Nand Erase All checked only
KIES_HOME_N8013UEUCMI3_N8013XARCMI3_813049_REV00_u ser_low_ship.tar

Any ideas? I have not heard of JTAG

I have a N8010 and I'm also in this kind of bootloop.

Nothing works.

I had OmniRom 4.4.4 installed and the newest TWRP.
I only can get into Download Mode.
When I try to get into Recovery the blue TWRP Screen pops up for a second and then it's going back to "Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" Logo.


I even tried to disassemble the battery. But this didn't work either.

Any ideas what I can do? If not, I'll have to take it to repair. Got some warranty left, but I rather fix it myself.

Thanks

have you tryed to odin install your firmware? usally the bootloop is caused because you need to do a factory reset to get rid of (in your case OmniRom 4.4.4) your firmware as I see is http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/confirm/31427/N8010XXUDNE4_N8010BTUDNF1_BTU.zip/

@Flying_Phil
yes samfirmware is picky go here and search your N8010 you most likly need to signup (it's free) and as you see most odin updates or "home" which means it does not do a factory reset which is ok if your updating a stock unrooted rom so you need to do a factory reset when coming from a custom rom.

well I tried to flash your attached file. Odin said "Pass!" but my Tablet still does the bootloop.

Like I said, I tried to flash several firmwares. All with this same result. First I tried the German version, then the Austrian and the Australian.

Now yours was the version for new zealand.

I have no clue, why this doesn't work.

Here is the log from Odin and I attached a screenshot.

sorry, I forgot to tell about it.

Yes I tried to go into Recovery, but there ist still TWRP on it and it still crashes after a second.

I even tried the flash without checking "Auto reboot", so I could boot directly into recovery, but it worked neither.

ok lets backtrack

what is your tablets stock info? and or you 16 GB or 32 GB

    When I select NAND Erase All, stock rom(4.0.4 or 4.1.2), Pit, & Re-Partition checked, Nand Erase all Checked, I get the following in ODIN 3.07 and 3.09:

    <ID:0/003> Added!!

    I'm starting to think its the ECCM and maybe I need a JTAG repair. Like I said before, I can't get into recovery, I just get a all white screen. When the tablet first died I got the Samsung logo and then it rebooted and went White, I never got the Samsung logo again. Any help please? Even if it's just recommendations for trusted JTAG repair sites, because I don't trust the ones I've found ths far. Or know PIT files that have worked for flashing on the N8013. Anything at all.

    I found this article here: http://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23562

    Exact same problem I am having, I think I'm going to need a JTAG repair. I just posted a request to get some fresh PIT files from multiple android versions. I ill keep posting updates on how this is going, I feel alone in this issue since no one has said anything but I get multiple views...but I see more and more people are starting to post in the help section for this particular brand of tablet in the past 3-5months, it sounds terrible but I'm glad I'm not alone since I feel like im talking to myself here.

    Just contacted Mobiletechvideos guys, I hope they are legit. I'm will to pay $50 for a jtag repair if i can have this tablet back.

    I've tried to use both ODIN & Heimdall. All files are failing for me. I tried stock 4.0.4 & 4.1.2 Roms, 3 different PIT files, I even tried to NAND erase all with a stock rom and ODIN continues to fail for me. I installed a virutal box on multiple machines running XP SP3 since windows 7/8 weren't working for me as well, that failed as well. When I try to flash the PIT files I get the output from ODIN in my OP, nothing is working for me. I'm just thinking I experienced instant death on this tablet for no reason at all. The most success i've had is with Heimdall just being able to reboot the tablet for me and then go back to Downloading mode, but nothing else is responding for me.

    I'f I can get some fresh pit files from fully operational devices I will know that I've done everything I can excluding JTAG repair myself. If I can't get some fresh PIT files from multiple android versions, then I might just have to send it to the Mobiletechvideos guys to see if they can repair.

    Thanks for the reply and interest in my issue!

    To download a copy of your PIT all you have to do is install Heimdall, with zadig driver (Samsung/General Device) , boot your tablet into Download mode, and download a copy of your PIT by going to Heimdall Frontend, clicking utilites, and downloading and saving your PIT to your desktop(or where ever you want) and uploading it for me.

    Heimdall can be found here: http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/

    After you are down with Heimdall, make sure you uninstall the driver from "Device Manager" in your USB Devices, that way, you can use ODIN again. A;; of this should only take about 5-10mins, as all the files are really small. i really appreciate this.

    ok I did it also a compair to My-N8013.pit that you said did not work, they or identical so that may be bad news for you.
