  • Hi, I’ve been trying to update my p6800/tab 7.7 to JB 4.1.2 Paranoid Android v2.2*. Everything is working well, except one big thing. It will not restart in a normal way. I need to go to the recovery mode and wipe Dalvik cache every time I want restart my tablet. Otherwise it will stay in some sort of boot loop, only seeing the glowing Paranoid Android intro. When I started to update I did a factory reset in CWM-based Recovery v5.0.2.7, I installed pa_p6800-2.20-11OCT.2012-182400 and gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip. Reset Dalvik Cache and after optimising apps it worked fine in the beginning. Starting en restarting very fast (20-30 sec.), Then I started to install my apps from the play store and at a certain point I discovered it will not start normally, without wiping the Dalvik Cache. After this I tried several things. 1: factory reset, install pa_p6800-2.20-11OCT.2012-182400 and gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip conform procedure. Then I wiped cache and Dalvik cache and installed the latest update pa_p6800-2.22-17OCT.2012-202212 and gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip from goomanagers site. After installing apps from play store, same starting problem 2: factory reset installed latest update pa_p6800-2.22-17OCT.2012-202212 and gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip from goomanagers site. After installing apps from play store, same starting problem. After installing apps from play store, same starting problem Although the same problem keep coming back, I tested during installation of the apps if I could normally restart my tablet. I found out that at a certain point before recovering my Nova Launcher settings things went wrong. I deleted Nova Launcher, restarted in recovery mode en deleted Dalvik Cache, optimized apps and restarted my tablet again, but got the same boot loop problem. Can anybody tell me how I solve this boot loop / starting problem? Kind regards, memunnik

  • Hi,

    I have a Samsung P 6800 tablet. I’ve tried to install 4.1 ROM many times following the instructions. Unfortunately it has failed.As I see the problem is that the tablet can’t recognise the two ZIP files copied to the SD card although they’re copied to the root.In the root there are only Alarm, Android, DCIM …. and the extStorages files.I checked that the SdCard/   ……ZIP file is in the extStorages file.I followed several instructions but I haven’t succeeded. What is the problem?
