I recently installed philz touch 6 recovery on my galaxy tab 3 lite, with the main purpose of rooting.

When I downloaded it over ODIN it was fine, and booted into recovery.

Now, when I try to boot (at all) it goes to recovery when I want to use the OS (without pressing any buttons other than POWER) it boots to recovery still. any help?


You should make a backup and reflash a stock ROM for your ROM or flash a different recovery for your phone. Also take a look at these sites.

  • Where can I find the stock ROM for my tab 3 lite, without having to download a virus? – MartinUbuntu Mar 21 '15 at 10:58
  • Haha lol! I use the site Sammobile, it's a site for all the samsung devices. Just create an account and you can download a stock firmware for your device. sammobile.com/firmwares – Thomas Vos Mar 21 '15 at 11:22
  • Have you already tried to flash a different recovery in download mode with odin? – Thomas Vos Mar 21 '15 at 11:23

FLash TWRP Recovery and from there go to Reboot ---> Bootloader
