    I really don't know what to do because last time I retried to do a reinstall, I scrapped a 600$ asus transformer prime. The only thing I can do is reboot the tablet in CWM mode.

    P.S. I installed TWRP, but it won't let me do a complete backup

    Please, I don't really ruin a galaxy note 8 n-5110.

  2. It works, tested in a Colombian version. Thanks :)
