Help Bricked Tab, Please Help!


I was trying to return my tab back to stock, it was stuck for about 20 min, i unplugged it from my computer whilst in download mode and it turned off. Now the tab will not turn on at all. I have charged it overnight, tried turning it on and nothing. Have I totally lost my tab? Please help! Thanks!


Unplugging while flagging in Odin often causes hard bricks. Unfortunately, I don't think the option to JTAG this device is available from my initial search. :(

This usually isn't covered under warranty, but you could give Samsung tech support a call and see if you can pay to have them repair it.

Are there any icons on the screen at all, or just a totally black display? Can you tell if the backlight is coming on?

Do a Google search for "one-click unbrick." It may not work in your particular situation, but since it's free, it's definitely worth a shot.

If all else fails, you might find a service that can restore your device.
