    Default Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again.

    Hi can anyone help me? I was following this
    and it kept failing. Now my Samsung galaxy note 10.1 says Please select recovery mode in kies and try again. Then I read online that you should root it again and it should be fine so I did this
    then I was able to see the battery charging icon but once I turned it on, it went glitch and then turned into a black screen. So I tried to unroot it again and still same thing as before. Can someone PLEASE HELP ME.

    Try a different USB port, updating the drivers, or redownloading the firmware.

    You can use download mode with a PC program called Odin to flash a stock ROM.

    Check this out: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-via-odin.html

    And go to sammobile .com for your stock ROM file.

    No not yet. And if you watched the video I did in fact use odin. I want to unroot my device but it seems I can't do that. My device wont even work right now. Is there anything else I could do or do you know someone else who can help me with my problem?

    SOLVED
    1. Download your Phone's Firmware from Sammobile. (make sure you select the right version and region)
    2. Connect your phone in download mode[Mostly volume down+power]

    5. Wait foe the first boot.
    Usually it Takes time.

    Jorgenismo,

    Did you have any luck? I also have the same issue where I can't get it to "download" mode. It just turns off and comes back up with the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". Kies of course doesn't work for me. I tried to initialize the install manually from Kies and that didn't work either.

    hi,
    know it's a few weeks out, but had the same thing. used ODIN and a current firmware from the guy listed in the first youtube(above). even with it on the 'triangle' it downloaded and restored. (now to find out how to root the pig!)

    i just got a t530nu from costco a couple days ago and tried three ways to root the darn thing with each time bricking it. ouch.

    my heart felt thanks to all who post answers at this forum! i would be out $300 bucks and a nice piece of plastic circutry.

    Ok Now you have fixes the Tab you want to then Root
    I would point the finger at the root being the issue
    and Knox picking this up you may find that your Knox count is now showing that that device has been rooted at some point
