  8. I have tried to hard reset my gt p3100 because it keeps on rebooting within about 4 minutes of being powered on.
    I have tried within settings. It gives warning everything will be erased, but after it finishers this task the phablet remains the same. no files removed.

    Even after that volume up and power button reset after the cache being cleared and factory reset thing.. the whole procedure goes on very well but after the reboot completes no change :(
    no files deleted.. and keeps on rebooting as said before (keeps on rebooting within about 4 minutes of being powered on and this continues)
    Cannot even manually delete any files or uninstall any programs..

    somebody please help me!!!!!!!!!!!
    please help me here
