    Hello Faiq!

    I followed your instruction to recover my note 10.1. I hold power+volume up button but the unit does not go into recovery screen as you showed. It blinks and show the samsung galaxy not 10.1 and keep flashing that. I have another one and it does go into the recovery mode but this bad one does not. I also tried Odin and tried to flash the rom but it failed after some time and the message was ” can not open the serial ( com) port.
    Any help please to fix this issue?

    my samsung n8000 tab fell programme what can i do

  8. Salvatore says:

    Following the steps, it works flawlessly. I’ve read that you can’t go wrong if you flash the firmware which matches the region/country where you bought the tablet (In my case, used PHE_N8010XXUDNG1), and OBVIOUSLY, the tablet model. Nothing impossible to find with some quick Google search.

    • Faiq Ahmed says:

      Press the buttons for longer time until recovery menu appears. If it doesn’t then reflash the firmware following the same steps. Agin go into download mode and flash.

    Dear author,

    I have a problem on Step 5. I’ve managed to call system menu but it looks differently even though I have Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000. There are few oprions to choose:

    – reboot system now
    – apply update from ADB
    – apply update from external storage (I downloaded all needed files to the SDcard as well just in case and I can see them there)
    – wipe data/factory reset
    – wipe cashe partition
    – apply update from cashe

    What should I do?

  25. Don6 says:

    Hello, would this install work on a 4g let Verizon model?

  36. Lukas says:

    Thanks ! Never knew my tablet could be THAT fast. It seemed like it was a potato instead of a processor, because i had this tablet for 3 years. But now, it is reaaaly fast. Can’t be happier about it !

  37. Eric says:

    Fantastic info. Thanks a lot for the guidelines .My galaxy note 10.1 N8000, was a dummy after an attack by a virus. I kept it down for 2 months out of frustrations. Now it’s working incredibly on kitkat. keep up the good work buddy.

    I’m having an error that says “Unfortunately, LogsProvider has stopped.”

    • Lars says:

      I had the same problem.

      I tried the above : “HOW TO FIX IF YOU ARE STUCK AT BOOTLOOP OR SAMSUNG LOGO” – thinking my tablet would return to original.
      After wipe data and wipe cache my tablet worked like a charm – WITH KitKat 4.4.2 🙂

  40. Antonio says:


    my Odin is still on step sboot.bin:

    Firmware update start..

    It doesn’t go ahead (it’s about 1 hour). What I have to do?

    • Faiq Ahmed says:

      Disconnect the device from the computer. Close Odin, run Odin again and repeat the process. If still problem occurs then download the firmware again completely and repeat the process again using the newly downloaded firmware.

  41. Ameh Chris says:

    Dear Faiq, my N8000 10.1 keeps getting stuck and most of the times it automatically brings up wi-fi and mobile data. So frustrating. I don’t know if carrying out the update procedure will make these to stop.

    • Faiq Ahmed says:

      Hi Ameh Chris, You should reset your tablet as it solves most of the problems. Save all your data first before resetting your tablet. Updating your tablet may solve the problem but it is up to you. However you can always downgrade your tablet if you don’t satisfy on kitkat update.

  42. olusey says:

    After updating my phone fail to recognise my sim it just bring up emergency service only

    • Faiq Ahmed says:

      Dial *#1234# on your tablet and see if all the three files AP, CP and CSC are present. If any file is unknown then reflash the firmware. This might solve the problem of unrecognize simcrad. I had this problem once on my phone and I did the same thing and it solved.
