    Default Galaxy Tab won't boot - vibrates

    Help needed! Galaxy Tab stuck on reboot.

    Starts up with the logo screen with "Samsung" then goes into a constant loop of 1 vibrate, followed by 2 vibrates about 5 seconds later. It then repeats this every 30 seconds.

    I've tried the hard power reset, deleted user data etc and reboot but no luck.

    I guess there must be a file or files that the startup is failing on and getting stuck.

    Any ideas on how to reset, reboot or walk through the startup?

    try this

    Press and hold the “Volume Up” and “Power” buttons at the same time, when logo appears on the screen release the “Power or home” button and continue press the “Volume” button
    When recovery screen appears use “Volume Up/Down” buttons to navigate and select “wipe data / Factory reset” by pressing the “Home” or “Power” button (Depends on Galaxy Tab model).

    I tried this, many times. I see the data wipe etc.. however, it's still the same!

    Any other ideas? ODIN re-flash?

    That is what I would do at this point and if that does not work then you might have to send it back to samsung or whoever you bought it from.

    I would look for the european firmware mod and see if you can get that on there or try this. i got it from another forum.

    simply flash JM6 and then JMC ontop of it.

    You'll lose all your stuff but your tab will be better off anyways. Performance of the dev firmwares outdoes any of the stock ones. And you'll get a few extra features while you're at it.

    Galaxy Tab now functioning once again!

    To re-cap this worked for a European tab (as used in UK)

    I downloaded

    Odin V1.7
    P1.PIT
    P1000XXJM6
    GT-P1000-CSC-MULTI-OXXJK2

    Then run ODIN to download both files and re-boot!

    There are some good firmware lists, advice and download links at:



    Good installation instructions (which give the general approach of how to use Odin)



    Many thanks for your help, saved me the hassle of an RTB for repair! :-)

    Please, I've been without my tablet for a week now!

    Similar problem. Power on displays Samsung, Then keeps displaying Verizon Wireless.
    I tried "reboot system" but there was no change.
    I see the "wipe data" choice, but what do the other choices mean: apply update from sd card and wipe cache??
    This is the first problem I have had.

    Thanks, cb
