    Default Help! My Galaxy Tab might be bricked

    I have my daughter's galaxy tab that seems to be bricked. its a SPH-P100 (Sprint).
    my son was fooling around with it and left it in the following state:ys the following:

    Android system recovery <3e>

    Enter: OK Key, Select : Vol Up / Vol Down
    reboot system now
    apply update from sdcard
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    _____________________________________________________________________

    -- bootmode=7 from cmdline...
    E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)
    E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command

    -- Wiping data...
    Formatting /data...
    E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
    Formatting /dbdata...
    E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/stl10
    Formatting /cache...
    E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    Data wipe failed.
    E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/recovery_kernel_log
    E:copy_kernel_file :: Can't open /cache/recovery/recovery_kernel_log
    E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
    E:failed to mount /cache (no such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
    E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)


    Can anyone help me to fix this? or is it just an electronic paperweight now?

    just use up/Down volume to select reboot system now.

    and congrats all your data has been deleted.

    I don't think the OP has the ability to select the reboot option. His post looks like a screen dump showing the aftermath of doing something bad in the recovery menu. Unfortunately, I don't have any good suggestions.

    Unfortunately I don't own one & I think you probably want to murder your son right now but are not going to because that would be illegal. I hope.

    scratch135. If you have luck with this ^ method, don't forget to post this solution in the other thread we were working on, just in case someone stumbles across that one and not this one.
