My Samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1 is stuck in a boot loop up to the logo.
the option is there to restore to factory default, will this help?
is there a way to recover my data?
can you offer any help?

Well @ordinor that's bad :( anyway I would say

First try performing a factory reset, to see if that help you out !

  1. First switch the device off holding the power button.
  2. Once the device is turned off, Press and hold the Volume up button then press and hold the Power button until the Samsung Logo appears.
  3. Use the Volume Up/Down buttons to navigate to wipe data/factory reset.
  4. Press power button to select Wipe data/factory reset.
  5. Select Yes -- delete all user data.
  6. Select reboot system now.
  7. Wait until the reboot process completes.

See if that helps you out ! If that doesn't helps you out then I am afraid but the second option is to flash the stock ROM over to your device again:(, do one thing try this one out first and if that doesn't helps you I'll guide you with the flashing process. :)

PS: (danger)Performing Factory resetting is going to wipe you data stored, so I couldn't help it at this stage but if this works out for you, can use recovery software to try getting your data back.(danger)

I had the same, but solved it. After booting it started to reboot after 10-20 seconds and this repeated continuously.

Please try this, after rebooting disable the wifi in the settings of your tablet.

If after disabling the wifi the tablet does not reboot than that is the issue.

How to solve?

enable the wifi again and remove the connections you are using or may use, starting first with the one that is connected (since otherwise the tablet will reboot before you have removed it). Than remove the others which you may use.

Also remove the tablet in your router from the list of connected devices (I am not sure it is needed but I did that)

Now reboot the tablet yourself.

In the settings of the tablet you see all your connections appearing again under Wifi.

Connect to the wifi connection (SSID) you need (you will likely have to input the key(password)).

Now the tablet does not reboot anymore automatically.

I got this screen. I kept trying everything. I think I held the volume down and power and kept holding. Eventually I got to the factory reset screen.
