im having some trouble installing a new OS on my gt-p7500 after wiping everyting. i have TWRP installed but im trying to find a way to push my new rom onto it. when i connect it to my windows 7 based laptop it says that the drivers where not installed. ive installed samsung drivers several times but it keeps saying the same damn thing :/ odin recognizes the device but kies cant connect... any ideas?

You could try flashing the rom anyway. Kies is to install drivers only, if heimdall see the tab, you should be fine. If not, google gt 7500 drivers, should lead to samsung web site to find the drivers for your laptop. Install, and you are good to go.

It could be the same. But, heimdall has more options. A heimdall package i have not used. Normally a rom is in a zip or tar format. Unzip the rom. Open heimdall front end. I have heimdall 1.1. Then put the cache/recovery/param files in the corresponding places. Their is 5 or 6 if i remember right. Then flash. Just do some research first to make sure of everything.
