I'm on the original 2.3.6 rooted ROM from way back when it came out.

I want to upgrade to CM9 nightly, but with more than 300 pages in that thread, I'm having trouble finding My upgrade path.

I'm not too sure about this MTD/non MTD thing either.

Anyone willing to help a disabled vet out? I've given myself a midrange trying to figure it all out.

I'll give you all the thanks I've got.

Why don't you start by telling us what is your tab model and go from there.

I have the same question but I am on a Euro GTAB Model (P1000), running a rootet Gingerbread 2.3.3 XXJQ1. What would be the right upgrade path/procedures to CM9 nightly?

Same as my tab.
Sorry I am on xda app can't see signatures

Go to overcome site
Http://www.teamovercome.net

Read the guide,
Missing pictures can be seen here.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=20974872

Basically.
Download GB-stock-safe-v5 and overcome kernel tar format. It will convert your filesystem to ext4 and provides CWM recovery.
flash both and your tab will be ready to flash ics from sdcard using cwm.
You can stop there with the guide, no need to flash overcome from.

Okay, I followed the instructions completely, everything was fine.

I downloaded the April 21 CM9 Nightly, and booted into recovery.

I selected it, it installed decently quickly, and now it is boot looping, showing some install screen that I can't read because it is so quick, but it shows an android laying on its back with a red exclamation mark...

Help?

Managed to get back into recovery.

I'm going to try rewiping it all and reflashing.

That seems to have done it, It is booting now, got the CM9 boot animation.

Now I need a landscape animation...
