Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 — Stuck in a bootloop, clearing cache and factory reset don't work.

Not sure what to do at this point. When I go into severice mode (Volume Up & power button) I try to clear the cache but get an error. The hard reset/wipe runs for maybe 10 seconds and then stops (no error). I reboot and can see that my desktop and apps are still there before the bootloop starts again. I have reached the point flashing the stock ROM (haven't researched how to accomplish this yet)? Any ideas?

Thanks all.

Mr. Diddy,

I used the guide that you provided and downloaded firmware build number P5113UEUCMK3 which should have install Android 4.2.2. The problem is that each time that I start the installation it runs for about 10 minutes and then fails showin (succeed 0 / failed 1). Any ideas?? I am current downloading an older build that would install 4.1.1 as after several failures I'm not sure what to do next. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, I don't have any direct experience with the process. Hopefully someone else on this forum can help more!

What were you on before the issues started?

Bosbouer, I believe 4.2.2 but I would have to verify if I can get into settings long enough.

You should then be able to flash back to 4.1.2. Just make very sure you have correct zip file for your model and country.

Changes were made to the bootloader of 4.4.x.that does not allow flashing back to anything
below 4.4.x.

Are you doing some upgrades of your device?

Re: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 — Stuck in a bootloop, clearing cache and factory reset don't work.

Been having the same issue as described above. Its currently "running" 4.2.2, tried flashing the stock ROM with Odin v3.10 with builds P5113UECLK7, P5113UEUCMH2, and P5113UEUCMK3 and got the same results as the OP. Tried using KIES and it wouldn't even connect.

I am experiencing the exact same issue with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and have tried everything in this thread. Did you find a solution. My next solution is looking like the trash bin....

Thanks.
