Tutorial Released to Fix Galaxy Tab 10.1 Brick Woes

For most Android devices, one of the most well known tactics for fixing a phone is the all important battery pull. It gets you out of device freezes, infinite boot loops and just about any other problem that you can’t fix using buttons. From there, it’s as easy as getting into the bootloader or the recovery and flashing something that fixes your device or restoring it to stock.

For some devices, battery pulls just aren’t an option. An example of this is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Tab, along with other devices, don’t have an opening battery door, so there’s no way to get to the battery. No way to get to the battery equals no pulling the battery when something goes wrong. So, what are they supposed to do?

XDA Senior Member Misledz answers that question with a tutorial on getting your Galaxy Tab 10.1 restored if you end up getting into a situation that would normally warrant a battery pull. The process is relatively simple, but it requires a lot of patience as the tutorial calls for you killing your battery before you can begin the process. Basically, you kill the battery and plug it in and when the battery icon appears, you simply press the power and volume down keys to boot into fastboot, then into download mode where users can Odin their way back to having a working device.

For the complete instructions, you can find everything you need in the original thread.
