DONATE TO ME
Set me straight.....
Hey all, new to the site but not to the game. I'm hoping not to upset anyone by asking these noob questions, but it's early, and I'm only on my first pot of coffee. I own a wifi only US spec 8.9. Just rooted it, compared to IOS jailbreak it seemed way too easy. I used methods of unlocking here on xda and am curious about a few things. I've googled, installed the " top tweaks" superuser, some rom managers and root doctors, whateve, but what can I really do to this thing that sets it above the rest? I can't seem to find CWM except in an old post noted as a fix. From reading It looks like this is needed to flash ROMs. Second, I want ICS on my tab bad, but from the info I don't see a fully functional custom rom yet, just old posts on ones with limited features. I'm down to donate or contribute to XDA if you guys can school me real quick. My goal is a nice overclock, a fully functional custom rom I can show off, but with ICS just around the corner for us with 8.9's I just don't know what direction to go. I've googled for hours but I can't seem to find what I want for this Galaxy Tab. Thanks for a great site and any info you guys can toss me.
So, I read the guide section, duh......so let me change my question's.
I downloaded the zip at the end of the post. Thing is I've already installed some Odin Multi Downloader 4. something.....is this the same thing? Can't I just drop the zip in my sd via usb without odin and open in stock recovery? Currently I have ROM Toolbox pro....6 bucks I think I may of wasted, SetCPU probably a waste also, Android Terminal Emulator, and Titanium Back up. I think I'm moving too fast just downloading stuff I don't really need. Guess I'm going to give this a go and try to install CWM recovery per the guide. Again my goal is to overclock, looks like ICS will roll out in a few so i'll wait. Can someone please enlighten me? I'm going nuts here. Is this process like iOS? What i mean is can you lose root access the same way you lose a jailbreak when new firmware is released and downloaded?
Forgive me, my mind is ruined by countless hours in iOS.
Really surprised and a tad dissapointed I did not get one reply.....but I must thank you for not helping and allowing me to get it squared away myself. Which I have done. Rooted, CWM installed and system backed up. Decided not to flash ICS yet though. Still would like advice on overclock.
Kill this thread/post.....I figured it all out.....overclocked at 1.5 as of today....runs great.
