[Q] No Firmware in Kies? Flashing Euro ROM?
I bought a refurbed Tab 7.0 Plus off of eBay, and when I plug it into Kies I get a blank firmware version field.
This means I can't update to a new firmware version via Kies; I am wondering if flashing the device to the EU version of the firmware will help (it currently has the US firmware, and keeps offering US services and downloads whilst locking me out of the UK equivalents, which is super annoying!).
Current firmware is as follows:
> Kernel Ver. - 2.6.36-P6210UEKJC-CL567728
> Build No. - HTJ85B.UEKJC P6210UEKJC
I am planning to use Odin to flash P6210XXKL2_16G (a Euro ROM) onto the device (which I located on both this forum and Samsdroid).
My question is: will flashing this version onto the tab be safe (I know there is always a chance of bricking but I *should* be okay here, right)? And will changing the ROM fix the Kies issue?
