26.01.2013   RIFF JTAG – Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Unbrick – Dead Boot repair supported

Samsung P5100 is based on the OMAP4430 Processor (Cortex-A9 Dual-Core). JTAG pads are very small; professional experience in soldering is required to connect wires to the JTAG interface.
Please note: The initial loader in the Samsung P5100 is XLOADER. Due to OMAP4430’s some peculiar TrustZone security features current resurrector will boot only in case XLOADER is alive. That’s why model name of current resurrector has additional text: ‘XLoader+’. In case XLOADER is damaged (which happens for example after wrong firmware reflash), you will have to use different resurrector DLL – the one with the ‘XLoader-” delimiter.

To resurrect Samsung P5100:

  •  Solder JTAG cable to Samsung P5100 JTAG pads;
  •  Connect USB cable to phone and PC;
  •  Insert battery;
  •  Make sure Samsung P5100 is selected in the list of models;
  •  Make sure a fixed TCK frequency is selected;
  •  Click Resurrect button;
  •  Wait till software signals a successful operation completion;
  •  Disconnect USB cable, de-solder JTAG wires;

Now phone is in bootable condition, that is, even if it does not start up normally, you can flash it using original Samsung downloader software to restore it to the working state.

To enter download mode:

  •  Disconnect PC cable;
  •  Insert battery;
  •  Hold ‘Volume Down’ key and press Power-On.
