Hey All,

Everything went well!

One small hangup that may be helpful to others - when the instructions on the teamovercome page say to "sync with kies at least once" - you don't have to transfer data or anything, it just means have kies open, connect the tab, and make sure the drivers install successfully.

The bootloader patch went well - my device only allows installing signed firmwares, but that's fine.

Ran with teamovercome 4.1.0 for a while, but decided since I don't have a dock with HDMI for it yet that I'd give humberos a try.

Very simple install - copied the three zips to internal storage, flashed with CWM as instructed, boom.

Very nice guys, thanks for all of your help!

As promised here is my experience with the overcome rom

overall everything is nice and smooth
the battery seems to last longer..
the transition is good gives you a feel of ICS like feature..especially the music where Google music was in place of the stock player..
When you switch on the tab you are greeted by the overcome logo (nice)
the notification tab was give a nice overhaul and good looking widgets
overall good performace but the gyroscope mechanism seems not to work here..
(any ideas..)
the temple run i installed won't tilt to collect coins he he he..

overall I'd give it a five star...

I can't boot the tab (I think I soft bricked it) the screen only showed a figure of cellphone and a pc with an exclamation inbetween.
I connected the tab to odin and again flash to GB stock safe v5 tar.
thankfully the tab booted to stock GB again.
Anyone know whats wrong?? Help please..

I forgot to give this:
My tab's specs now reads:

Model number
GT-P1000
Firmware version:
2.3.3
baseband version
P1000XXJPZ
Kernel version
2.6.35.7
se.infra@sep-52 #2
Build number
Gingerbread.XXJQ1
I had exactly same problem with the same device. I re-downloaded "Overcome_Kernel_v4.0.0.tar" many times. But the flash failed everytime.
Any suggestion. Please help. Thanks.

is your Overcome kernel tar a bad download?
md5sum: 9ae7329ef734719615c021e033762e6b

Thank you for your help. My Overcome kernel tar is corrupted somehow. I googled it and find another one. Everything is working now.

Thanks again.

I have a at&t galaxy tab... running 2.2. I want to add a non-market app. Do I have to root? There is no setting to allow that...at&t blocked... so what is the easiest way to make it accept non-market apps?
