Hello, I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S5E which is stuck in a bootloop after failed Odin firmware flash
It's impossible to turn it on when disconnected from USB.
When connected to a PC and pressed Power + Volume Up + Volume Down buttons it comes up with error message for few seconds,
"An error has occurred while updating the device software.
Use the Emergency recovery function in the Smart Switch PC software."
restarts and the same error message comes up (and it goes on like this until USB cable is disconnected)
Because it keeps restarting after few seconds it's impossible to run any flashing tool.
Is there anything that may fix it, or is it bricked?

When mine was doing pretty much the same thing after a failed firmware flash, I had to send it to Samsung for a new mainboard. I don't quite understand how a failed firmware flash with correct firmware borked a motherboard, but that was it.
