[HELP] My Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 SM-T111 Crashes After Rooting

by rwu7 / October 17, 2014 6:02 AM PDT


After rooting my phone using Kingo Root, i installed a custom rom from (

The problem is, the installation did not make my phone better. All applications started to
crash (force close) especially Facebook, Whatsapp and messaging.

The crash occured in regular basis everytime i used some functions in the apps. The warning message says: " ...... has stopped". I can not even send an sms anymore since it was always crashed seconds after writing the message.

I have done all of these steps suggested in many forums but they did not work:

1. Wipe partition and cache in recovery mode
2. Delete data and cache of the apps
3. Fix permissions in apps to fix their UIDs (i used fix permission app downloaded from google play store)

My questions are:

1. What is the best installer app to install ROM from computer?
2. What is the best ROM for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite SM-T111?
3. When installing the ROM, Does it install the new kernel as well?

I'm still new in Android rooting and i don't have much knowledge about installing a new rom properly including its Kernel.

Please help me. Thank you in advance.

Sounds like you need to go back.

Almost all root instructions include how to go back. Go back to what worked.

The problem is i dont know how to bring it back to its' first state. i have done the factory reset but it still crashed.

Do you know how to install a new ROM that will replace everything including its' kernel?

I've gone through the XDA forums. all the same answer like any other forums: wiping your cache / partition in recovery boot, factory reset, etc but they don't solve the problem.

The cache/etc is to try to save it from going back.

Ask them how to go back.

ALL good root instructions tell us how to go back or install another version. If you were unlucky to find bad instructions well, tell others about it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
