  1. So after following all of the forums with any info on this model of tab i noticed a lot of people asking the same questions, seeing as i have been tinkering and following devs progress I thought Id consolidate as much of the Q+A sprawled across the forums into one noob friendly place. So here goes. What do we know? Currently the only official roms are worldwide froyo 2.2.2 and EU gingerbread 2.3.6. The GB rom isnt out over the air everywhere yet so if your kies hasnt got the update and your feeling confident then you can pick up a copy from droidangel.blogspothttp://droidangel.blogspot.com/2011/...-original.html With detailed instructions here http://droidangel.blogspot.com/2011/...e-samsung.html Read, reread and READ AGAIN. It isn't difficult to do as long as you follow the instructions carefully. Noteworthy info on flashing: 7zip should be used to unrar the downloaded roms as there are issues with other archive managers, the password is samfirmware.com If you have connection problems with Odin its most likely driver issues its best to uninstall all kies software and drivers, reboot, install latest kies and connect your device, wait for drivers to install and then reboot again, If you decide you don't like the rom you can flash stock firmware over it to downgrade and continue to get kies updates. Is it worth doing? I have been using 2.3.6 now for a few days and have no issues with light to moderate use, I have noticed a better looking interface(just small cosmetic differences) much faster browsing, and my quadrant went from 750 to 1400, If you have had a different experience please post. This update unfortunately doesn't fix the video out problem or the issue with skype using the front facing camera. In my opinion it isn't an update to write home about but it is worth doing. Can I install it on a different region of tab?< There have been a few people who have successfully installed this rom on tabs from different regions so it is possible, If you have managed to do this please post your region and method As for trying to flash cross region, ask here and ill do my best to help. As far as I know there are issues with installing on the Korean version due to hardware differences, more on that here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1376440 Can gingerbread for the P1010 be rooted? Personally I have tried Z4Root, Zergrush and SuperOneClick all of which cant get root yet, Skin1980 is however working on a cf-root kernel here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1386643 which will allow clockworkmod recovery, superuser(root) and busybox, Please note that at the current time if you flash skins cf-root you will have to reflash the entire firmware if you wish to rollback, This will do no harm as long as you read the forums and have an understanding of what your doing. This is all the useful info I have managed to find so far, hopefully it can help anyone attempting to flash this long awaited upgrade, A BIG THANKS to all the devs working on this device!! It is much appreciated. WARNING: Failure to read and understand the instruction can lead to your device being irreversibly damaged, The different galaxy tab firmware comes in different versions according to Country, Region and Carrier providers. It is possible to brick your phone if you flash it with the wrong firmware which doesn't match your device. You are warned, proceed at your own risk!

  2. Yeah, so finally there is a official gingerbread release for the Wifi GTab community, you can get it on sammobile.com, I have it installed and its working fine. Few things to note are that z4root and superoneclick cant root it yet, If you do require root there is a cf-root on xda for this rom and finally Im not sure when this will be installable through kies, I havent tried TBH so it might already be up. GLHF
  3. Finally samsung are going to release this officially, you can get the samsung gingerbread rom now from sammobile.com if your willing to flash it yourself, I have done and it works great, some nice changes and a better quadrant score, also if you require root there is a cfroot kernel for it with busybox root and a beta cwm on xda, I suppose this leaves Modaco in a better position to possibly get a kitchen version, which would be AMAZING!!! GLHF

    This has been an issue for some time now, I doubt samsung will ever update this firmware but our amazing community is aware of it and is working on it, in the past few days a modder on XDA has released a custom version of CWM for the GT P1010 specifically, with some willing testers this should be resolved in the near future, I am going right now to try it for myself, Power in Numbers,
  6. I have the same prob, I assume the splash is hardcoded into the bootloader somewhere, I read somewhere about downgrading or changing your bootloader but I think its risky, Im hoping there is a simpler solution so i dont have to attempt anything like that. I am running the r8 froyo so trying r7 prob wont solve this, hope this prevenyted you wiping:)
  7. Hey there, not sure you will find an answer in this topic, im afraid my knowledge of other phones compatibility is weak so I can only suggest trying to find the 2.1 android rom specifically for the streak :D Also try repost this question as its own topic and the community should be able to address ur problem.
  8. Hello all, I recently upgraded my iphone to an HTC desire and am well chuffed, along with an amazing modaco and the android community have begun putting together a phone that is truly mine, I just have a few questions to which the answers seem to evade me despite prolonged searching of the forums... :D Firstly I purchased my phone from o2 and I have installed a rom I baked myself which is froyo with sense, but the majority of htc software I removed. I used the unrevoked application with clockwork recovery, my questions are, 1. is it possible to have a landscape homescreen with sense? if so how? and if it is easily done with an app, which I have also tried to search for, could anyone recommend a good one? 2. is there an easy way to remove the o2 startup/shutdown screen and replace it with a modaco logo or some such? Also, im very new to android, any recommendations of must have applications would be greatly appreciated. Apologies to anyone who has answered these questions 100+ times before, and thanks in advance for your help :D
