    First boot is always the longest, so have a little patience. After sometime, your device will show your Welcome Screen.

Congrats!!! You have unbricked soft bricked Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite (SM-T110). Make sure to make a Nandroid backup of your device, just in case this problem occurs in the future.

Note:-

  • If Odin doesn’t detect your device or you have a connection failure then make sure that device drivers are installed properly. Also make sure that Kies isn’t running in the background. Kies is known to interfere with Odin.
  • If Odin shows FAIL! instead of PASS! then something went wrong during the flashing procedure. If so, then disconnect your device, re-insert your battery and close Odin, then begin the entire flashing procedure once again. If you are still getting errors then post the messages in Odin’s Message Box in the comments section below.
  • If you are stuck in a bootloop i.e. keeps on restarting then enter in Recovery Mode by pressing and holding Power + Volume Up and Home buttons until you see Recovery Mode. In Recovery Mode, perform cache wipe and then a factory reset. Then reboot your device, it should work properly now.

    Fucking LMAO. You don’t even own the copyright on those photos.

    • RohanKandwal

      Each of the above pics are my own, not copied and DMCA is for preventing others stealing my efforts.

      • JerkfaceMcGee

        So if I took a photo of your website, I would own the copyright?

        I’m not sure you even understand what a copyright is, much less the DMCA.

        • RohanKandwal

          Maybe not, but are you a DMCA police?? 😛 😛 As I said earlier, DMCA is just to stop leechers. Anyhow, are you here to talk on DMCA?? 😛

        • Robert Lee

          I’ll give you an example of DMCA say you make an app like I did and sell it for lets say $2.99, if someone makes an exact photo copy of the app i made and gave it away as a free app. In that case thats when I’d pull a DMCA and sue that person. Thats what the DMCA is for, DMCA stands for Digital Millennium Copyright Act which pretty much slows pirating games or apps down but doesn’t stop it. Thats why if you uTorrent lets say Call of Duty that activision puts on a site like piratebay. Then they send a message to your ISP complaining about copyright infringement. The result of that would either be a slap on the wrist or they cancel your service depending on who your isp is.

            Hi, thanks for such an elaborate post. I know what DMCA is and why we use it. I used it earlier just to stop others from stealing my posts and images. That’s it. Thanks again for the comment. 😀

  • Humberto Arias

    hello, I’ve tried this procedure a lot of times with no success. Odin completes it and everything seems to be ok, even the PASS tag is there, but the tablet just shows the first samsung logo and then it goes black and that’s it. It does nothing else. after some time when I try to turn it on, it does the same thing and I can’t get it to turn on
