Stuck In Boot Loop On Note 10.1

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (WiFi Only). The tablet won't boot into the OS or into recovery mode. It only boots into download mode.

I have tried putting a different recovery on it, but it doesn't help.

My tablet is rooted, has TWRP, and is running CyanogenMod 10.2 nightly.

Did I brick my tablet? I did not do anything to brick it. I didn't touch it or turn it on for two days, but when I go to turn it on, it gets stuck in a boot loop. It says "Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" and stays that way until it dies.

When I try booting into recovery, the TWRP title image pops up and quickly goes away and if it is plugged in to charge, the battery loading icon comes on, but it never shows the battery bars, only the loading circle.

If you could solve this problem, I will love you forever.

Thanks in advance.

The XDA thread does describe a similar problem to my own, but it says flash the stock recovery without a link to the stock recovery file. Do you happen to know how I get this file, or direct me to another thread that has it? I can't seem to find it. Thanks

I tried installing the stock recovery and odin passed, but the recovery mode on the tablet still shows the TWRP recovery screen before blanking out.

So, I tried flashing the stock recovery and that did not work. And then I tried flashing the stock rom (multiple times with different roms) and that did not work either. My tablet is still stuck on the screen that says "Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1". Do you have any other suggestions?

are you sure you are performing all the steps !! because while flashing you need to wipe out your device completely before flashing any other ROM. So, i would suggest that you should first completely wipe out your device and then try flashing. You are mentioning me a problem that one of my friend was stuck on he keep on trying flashing the ROM and go not solution, but when he has wipe all the data and then flashing has solved the problem completely.B)B)

How do I wipe the device? Is it something I have to do in ODIN or something?


while you press and hold the volume down + power button,When you see Factory reset / System Recovery menu on screen release the Volume Up Key.Use Volume Down key to select Wipe Data / Factory Reset option and then Use Power key to confirm the operation. You need to use the Volume Down key again to select "Yes -- delete all user data" again press the Power key to confirm. Once its done reboot the system and then move forward with the flashing procedure !! :bashful:

I have never seen that factory reset menu before. I tried it now and I still don't see it. Are you sure they have it on the N8013 model?


yes i am 110% sure it is available there, what i am not sure is name it would be named "factory reset" or may be "wipe data" .... it's standard and every samsung devices have that.

This is what has happened to my tablet. I have had two people look at it and no one can get past the splash screen.

I have been advised that this could be a hardware issue and not be rectified without opening it up.

Is this a common problem with them?

Marym: the S-pen is a lot easier to use than a standard stylus. I consider styli to basically be a plastic version of my own finger ... it doesn't do all that much different than touching the screen. The S-pen, on the other hand, is very useful in programs like Sketchbook Pro and similar drawing programs because it's pressure-sensitive and much more precise.

I had the same problem with my gt n8000 (stuck with the samsung logo), downloading mode-odin and no options to choose but didnt connect it to my pc. Given for service. Motherboard changed, paid Rs.6700. I am not sure if they have really changed it but it's working fine now.
Please let me know if any one knows how to check if the motherboard has been changed. The reason I doubt is that they have given me a motherboard which has p7500 embossed on it. I found out after few days. Another reason is that I can't open the tablet and check if they have really fixed a new one. I'm gonna call samsung soon. Will post if possible!
