Hey all. There's a lot knowledgeable folks around here, so I thought I'd see if I can get some help on my problem.
I've got a Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wifi, that I rooted about two months ago, using the instructions found on a sticky post found on this forum with the subject: "[GUIDE] How to Root the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (WiFI) [Video Walkthrough]" (Sorry, I can't post a link yet).
Haven't done anything else to it, aside from installing a few run of the mill apps. It did auto-update a couple of times.
Was working fine, now it just got stuck on this screen with a message:
ODIN3 Download Mode
Reason: No Kernal
Secure Mode: Secure
Check Signature: Check
Custom Binary Download: No (0 counts)
Custom Binary: Samsung Official
Waitting USB Cable...
Do not turn off target!!
It comes to this screen after the Samsung title screen (not the animation) and a VERY quick screen with some red writing (goes by too fast to see what it says).
I tried to follow the original instructions again. Put the tab in download mode (power + volume down), open Odin3, select the md5, and hit start. Get a FAIL with this message:
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> recovery-cwm_184.108.40.206-sam-tab-10.1.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..

<ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
The screen on the tab updates with this:
WritePArtition: Error to NvStorMgrFileWrite![err:0x30000]
DownloadPartition_odin: Error to WritePartition![err:0x30000]
Tegra_Nand_Write: Error to DownloadPartition_odin![err:0x30000]
That's as far as I've gotten. I noticed the Re-Partition option is not checked in Odin3, and the errors on the tab have to do with partitions... but didn't want to do that if I could eff it up even more.
Any direction on how to proceed? I'm also wondering if one of the auto-updates didn't muck up the works.
Any advice would be great. Thanks everyone.
TL;DR: Stuck in Download Mode, get errors on re-root.
