I am using the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 inch , SM-T705 model running on 4.4.2 kitkat stock android.

I was trying to flash a new rom and I went and did a wipe on everything using TWRP custom recovery. It was my stupid mistake and now my tablet is always struck at the loading screen when I restart it. It can still be booted into recovery mode. I need some urgent help dealing with this situation. Can you guys advice on this matter. Thanks alot.

  • You can download the stock firmware for your device from here. Make sure you download the correct version.

  • Now you have to download Odin.

  • Now you have to put Samsung Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 into download mode using these steps:

    • Turn off Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 carefully.
    • Press your Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 volume down button and home button simultaneously.
    • Press your Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 Power button at the same time while pressing its Home button and volume down button. Press your Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 Power button again after viewing a warning message to put it into download mode.
  • Launch Odin on your PC and connect Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 with your PC via USB cable.
  • You can see a message in the bottom left corner of Odin after connecting Tab S 8.4 LTE SM-T705 with your PC.
  • Now you have to extract the ZIP file of the downloaded firmware on your PC to get a tar.md5 file.
  • Once you have successfully extracted the ZIP file, you have to press “AP” in Odin and choose “.tar.md5″ file.
  • Now you have to press the “Start” button in Odin after selecting “Auto-reboot” option.
  • Now you need to wait until your SM-T705 is restarted.
  • It should now be running the stock firmware you flashed.
  • +1 and glad it worked for OP. @VishnuvardhanKumar please accept this answer as it has helped you and may help others. A note I always add is: before you format/wipe/install ANYTHING via recovery make a nandroid backup, then backup the backup onto your PC or somewhere safe. They can be a life saver if you like flashing on your phone regularly, and give you a safety net if all goes wrong!

  • @LimKianHwee Is who I meant to tag. Sorry about that! I think my brain has given up for the rest of today! Good answer still though, just a slightly stupid comment underneath it from me!
