I recently upgraded my stock ROM of my Galaxy GT-p1000 from Froyo 2.2 to Gingerbread 2.3.6 and got stucked. I used the Odin to flash the ROM, it was successful by indicating that the ROM has been flashed OK, it rebooted and hanged at Samsung logo there rebooting & loop back to restart rebooting again over and over. Someone told me something about flashing the boot image with ADB, I do not even know what's ADB talking less of where find. I'm stuck, what should I do for my tab to boot up?

  • Have you checked with the first-aid provided in the boot-loop tag-wiki? E.g. have you cleared cache, wiped Dalvik, etc? – Izzy Apr 30 '13 at 6:05

Since you said you have aready use Odin to flash, I think you know how to get these necessary files: Bootloader, PDA, PHONE, CSC, PIT.

Then, let's start.

Force the device to the upload mode by this way: simultaneously press power button and down button.

  • When the device is in download mode, plug Odin software and flash ONLY bootloader file (normally bootloader file is like this: BOOTLOADER_DEVICECODE.tar.md5 ).

  • After that, flash again with all PDA, Bootloader, CSC, PHONE and it's ok without PIT.

  • You should use the lastest version of Odin, as I am now using ver. 3.07.

Please feel free if you need more help.

  • Sir, your answer is very close to solving this my problem. I was able to download the latest version of Odin 3.07 but I can't find where to download BOOTLOADER_DEVICECODE.tar.md5. Where can I find this file to download? – Peter Agboro Apr 30 '13 at 18:12
  • Could it be that P1000XWJQ8 Android 2.3.6 Firmware Rom that I used to Flash/Update the Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 is the wrong one? Everything seem Ok when I flash the Tab, it clearly displayed "PASS" after it was successfully flash. At first when the Bootloop started, I flashed PDA with DBData file. Can you suggest another Firmware ROM for the Galaxy Tab GT-P1000, Jelly Bean 4.0.1, 4.0.4 or something? I really needs your help. – Peter Agboro Apr 30 '13 at 18:31
  • Again someone suggested that I should flash my Boot Image with ADB, I do not even know what is ADB, do you know anything about ADB? If you please tell me about and where I can get the file – Peter Agboro Apr 30 '13 at 18:39
  • 1. As I know, normally when something happens with on/off state, it is related to bootloader file. Bootloader file is the most basic ground state for other layers, and apps to boot up. 2. Well, I have no idea using ADB, Odin is likely a greatest one to flash device. :) 3. This might be helpful for you: androidromupdate.com/2012/02/26/… – zoro May 1 '13 at 5:01
