Im hoping someone can point me in the right direction. So I am in the process of attempting to unlock the bootloader on my Galaxy Tab 6. However, the device will not boot to the bootloader. I can use the Vol up + Home + Power to get to the menu options (Wipe cache, Wipe data, Reboot to bootloader etc..). However, the reboot to bootloader option simply restarts the device to the OS. I have no issue booting to the OS at all.
First I thought I had a corrupt bootloader. I used ODIN to reflash the stock OS, CSC, and BL to the tablet using the Samsung provided files. in BL I selected BL_T580XXU3BRF1_CL13839138_QB18630808_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5 . In AP I selected AP_T580XXU3BRF1_CL13839138_QB18630808_REV00_user_low_ship_meta.tar.md5 , I left CP blank as there was nothing provided, and lastly for CSC I chose CSC_OXX_T580OXX3BRF3_CL13878383_QB18711126_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5 . As far as ODIN options go, I have used Phone EFS clear, bootloader update, NAND erase all, and re-partition. I have had no success though. The tablet boots and works fine other than not being able to boot to the bootloader. Its really strange. Can anyone provide any insight?
