Hey guys, so for some reason I can't get Odin to work - hoping somebody can point me in the right direction. Here's where I'm at.

-- Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 running the UEALCB firmware
-- Following this thread: http://rootzwiki.com...very-overwrite/ , I successfully flashed the unsecured boot image corresponding to my firmware package using Heimdall.
-- Now when I boot my Tab into download mode, the top left says "YES (1 counts)" for custom binary download, and says "CUSTOM" for current binary.

However, when I follow the steps in the OP in this thread, in Odin I get the output shown by nohctis upthread:


<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> recovery.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)

After reading the responses here, it sounds like I'm supposed to be seeing the box under ID:COM show yellow with a COM port listed in Odin -- but I'm not. With Heimdall, my device is being detected just fine, on frontend and in command line. I've tried restarting the computer and the tab, and I've tried different USB ports.

Anybody have any idea what I'm missing here? Many thanks in advance.

You are right you should see yellow in the box.

make sure Samsung Keis driver is installed and then go into device manger and unistall the samsung device in the manager window. Now under device manger and action select "scan for harware changes" it should re-discover your tablet and the ODIN window should turn yellow.

I have a couple of phones and this tablet and I have to jiggle my setup time and time again to get the system to use the correct driver.

I put my device into download mode and start ODIN and then jiggle my device manager until I get the right driver loaded. I am sure there is a windows app to check and apply the correct driver but this works for me.

It seems that after loading the driver for Heimfall you need to get back to the Samsung driver.

Good luck.

@bark777: Yep, that did it man - installed Kies from the Sammy site and stopped all related processes, and the rest went like a breeze. Didn't even have to mess around in device manager. Thanks a bunch for your help - and thanks to the OP and all the great devs.

The CWM Recovery is installing, but it's being over written by the stock recovery. This happens if you have updated using the OTA prior to rooting. Follow jcase's thread at this link to fix the problem: http://rootzwiki.com...very-overwrite/

If you need Heimdall, you can download it here: http://www.glassechi...ducts/heimdall/


That did it, Thanks! All is right in the world once again.

That looks right. Did you flash the zip file from recovery?

It sounds like your tablet may have had the OTA firmware update installed. If that's the case, you need to follow this thread and use the instructions under post number seven (#7): http://rootzwiki.com...te/#entry663213

You can download Heimdall from here: http://www.glassechi...ducts/heimdall/

Once you have done that, you can reflash CWR using Odin and then flash the zip file for root.
