    Default Galaxy Tab Might be bricked - Help Needed

    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?

    What was he trying to do?

    What happens when you reboot? If nothing, did you factory reset?

    I think he was trying to (I don't know the Android term) jail brake it.
    When I reboot it the above screen scroll up. The factory reset
    brings the same screen back up.

    Android equivalent is flash. First you root your phone, which gives you root access to Android, then you flash a custom ROM, which is a custom version of Android.

    A lot of those errors are relating to cache. What happens when you try and wipe cache?

    When i try to wipe cache the following comes up;

    --Wiping cache...
    Formatting /cache...
    E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    Cache wipe complete.
    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)

    Hmmm.

    I suggest you post your question here as well. This subforum is kinda quiet.
