    Exclamation [BRICK] SM-210 shows as EMEI device

    THis tablet was just given to me, and it is broken. I think it is hard bricked/soft bricked since the device can still be read on a Linux PC. However this tablet appears to be dead, it does not respond to any key combination, battery removal, Odin mode, downloadmode NOTHING. but if you plug it in a linux/windows PC it says the device EMEI by Marvell , on windows it needs a device driver for EMEI, on linux the message by using $ lsusb

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1286:8164 Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.


    [12367.213369] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1286, idProduct=8164
    [12367.213380] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
    [12367.213385] usb 1-1: Product: EMEI
    [12367.213389] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: MARVELL

    again it does not respond to Odin mode or any other methods of recovery. I suspect that the bootloader is damaged since this tablet has been drained (battery 0%). i searched on how to fix the device but it appears that there is no fix. Others recommend to putting the bootloader in the microsd so the marvell CPU should boot from it but i don't have any other device which has the same specs. I don't want to go to a service center since it may cost.
