    My grandfather was issued a Verizon galaxy tab 2 to help with reporting health conditions to his doctor. Now that he is in home care, it is not needed. When you turn it on the Samsung logo appears, galaxy tab 2 logo appears, and then the Verizon logo. Once done you never see the home page. There is an app that automatically starts. You can't back out of it or anything. Tried factory reset, same thing. Tried to flash several times but "SECURE CHECK FAIL : recovery". There is no way to get into the settings to set the usb debugging. Is this thing dead to me?

    It's possible. Try to boot into download mode (Volume Down/Home/Power. If it does, don't let the "don't turn the phone off" thing scare you - you can turn it off. But in that mode you can flash a stock Verizon ROM for that model S2 (the model number is on the label under the battery). SamMobile Firmwares should have a ROM for it. The worst that can happen is that a now-useless phone becomes useless.

    Wow, thanks. SamMobile had the perfect version. This thing is good to go
